I could say the same about you........
with income disparity growing over the past decades during a heavy overall trend of following "trickle-down"/ "help the rich and everyone will be helped" ideology it seems amazing that so many people are still saying "let's double down" (again) ....... maybe it will work this time, somehow..... so before you talk about me drinking the kool aid take a look in the mirror, we are a country headed for social unrest, we have worse disparity then we had during the "robber-baron" era, and a climate of expanding anti-consumer, anti-average person policies.
when would you throw in the towel and say the republican trickle down economics are failing?, how much wider of a gap would get you to agree? we sure haven't raised taxes on the rich in a long time and over the last few decades have dropped them tremendously, so it is hard to argue we have not been following that path.
