    A government nonpartisan report finds that trickle down economics does not work. Has never worked. Will not work under Romney, either.
    Yet -- the report publisher is pressured by the Senate minority to keep the report hush hush.
    How? How are they able to do this?

      I'm glad I looked through the forums, because I was going to post this also. 

      Channel your homophobic, science denying conservative relative.   They don't want homosexuals to speak freely.  They want gay marriage to be illegal, and people who are gay to undergo reparative therapy.   It also doesn't matter how much evidence for climate change is presented, it will, once again, be completely denied.

      Why do you think they insulate themselves in their right-wing bubble and only listen to talk radio and watch Fixed News?  Psychologists have found people like this become MORE ardent in their beliefs when challenged.  It's quite depressing.

        We see it every day here on the forums.
        Don't like the facts?
        Fact don't fit your reality?
        Don't investigate possible alternatives to your views.
        Don't consider for one minute that your views may be wrong.
        Just vehemently deny the facts.

    One thing some people say is, watch how others are treated because it will come to you too. Unfortunately, people prefer to think, it only happens to others tongue
