    20 million Chinese a year can now afford western style automobiles thanks to capitalism whereas 25 years ago no one could. But, almost half the population still lives at subsistence levels on rural subsistence farms.

    Should the half still at subsistence be given welfare or should they be encouraged into the get rich Republican capitalist economy??

    I vote for a mixture of both if you are starting a poll.

    Think about building a road. Obviously the fellas still on the subsistence farm can not afford higher taxes to build the highway to their town. SO, you gotta charge someone. Trick is to find the comfortable middle ground of charging those who can afford it.

    Kingdoms and dictatorships have the same sort of class stratification you seem to enjoy. Why do you promote class stratification, anyway? That's an odd thing for a human to want.

    notice you were not intelligent enough to answer the question so tried to change the subject to avoid your liberal ignorance!!

    Once again: Should the half still at subsistence be given welfare or should they be encouraged into the get rich Republican capitalist economy??

    too stupid!!! there is no middle ground for liberals. We just went through a housing depression caused by too much borrowing and now Barry wants no credit or debt ceiling at all so he can borrow at will!!

    They should be given subsistence. There are not enough resources in this world to have too many more people live the wasteful consumer lifestyles that Americans have had for the last few decades.

    way way too stupid and prefectly 100% liberal. Liberals predicted that 400 years ago we'd be out of resources and yet the planet today maintains 5 times the population at an undreamed of standard of living. We now have unlimited energy and the Chinese are buying 20 million cars a year growing to 60 million!!

    Do you see why we are 1000% positive a liberal will be slow, so very very slow?? No offense.

    Your anger and the degree of your negativity is startling. It will not serve you well.

    I did not answer your "question" because there can be no proper answer to it. That's why you phrased it in that manner. The fact of the matter is that most people (let's say 95%) have little or no desire to control the lives of everyone else. The thing that separates the top 5% of the wealth classes is that they DO have a desire to control others (through accumulation of cash and capital, which is a claim on the labor of other people).

    You seem to hold that kind of social pathology in high regard . . . perhaps you, also, have a social pathology. I cannot say, but your words are very confrontational.

    You seem angry at those that are poor and indigent. Why?

    I am interested in knowing what your definition of "liberal" is. Your anger is extreme, and you seem to have identified a group of people you refer to as "liberals" as your enemy.

    liberals are anti-Americans who support big government and socialism because they lack the IQ to understand the Jeffersonian Republican capitalism of our Founders.

    our liberals spied for Stalin and gave him the bomb and now have elected Barry twice despite his depression, his two communist parents, and despite voting to the left of Bernie Sanders. So why not be angry toward our enemies??
