The end of a nation
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
The late Dr. Adrian Rogers
It is ironic that people who appear to have plenty of time to post political stuff on a stock board during business hours would accuse half of America of being socialist welfare bums but it seems rude to bring that up. Not that being rude to republicans is wrong. Indeed it is a noble and productive activity. It just seems inconsistent to defend people of limited means and opportunity by accusing republicans of having limited means and opportunity. Much more fun to accuse them of having limited intellect and worldliness. ;)
Some has to create the wealth first. Why should those industrious enough to create it have to share it with those who aren't industrious?
I'm not talking about those who truly can't be industrious due to mental or physical handicap, I'm only talking about those who are simply lazy. And, no, obesity is not a handicap!
Do you actually believe the nonsense you post or are you so disingenuous as to repeat whatever talking points your Republican masters give you?
The democrats have never - ever - ever - ever - suggested that America become a socialist or communist state and they have certainly never said that the wealthy must give up their wealth. They may argue that a nation that concentrates too much wealth in a very few hands while allowing the ranks of the poor and needy to swell is destined to failure but it isn't the same thing. In fact, I think it is a lesson that has been proven in post WWII America and Europe. A strong middle class is necessary to a strong economy. Now, more than ever, the middle class needs help to recover from Rove and Cheney's assault on it.
Give up these silly partisan posts of yours and debate real issues. Should there be tax breaks for factories that remain in the US instead of relocating to Mexico? Should government invest in infrastructure? Should taxes be raised to fight a deficit and debt that threatens to undermine America's economic and military security? What about the displaced workers who have seen their jobs and their health care benefits evaporate - can or should anything be done for them?
I know you can do it.
Yes let us debate your clintock passed nafta ,forced every lender to give morgages too everyone. Defense spending well I guess Obamie just forgot to put this in his stimulass package,because they were to busy craming it down our throats before anyone could read it. their is so much pork in this stimulass ,I'm suprised we even get a$13 dollar break. This is all you demcraps are good for ,raising taxes and then not paying your own. Everything this clown campaigned on he has done just the opposite. No drilling ,no windmills,no border walls,real jobs,instead he is going re do bridges but not with qualified white males what a cluster f$$K this guy is.
If that was the realistic thing that will be done with this money, I applaud you, however, so far (as well as the voice of history) everything seems to diminish your philosophy...We shall see....yet again!
as long as we keep importing more and more poor and needy from their own countries, which THEY should be staying in and fixing, their ranks will swell until they burst.
The worthless of society should be maintained at a maximum 10% of the entire population. The rest should be put in slave labor camps until they become useful citizens.
