    Here is a 20 min video of John Stossel about government handouts (freeloading).
    Who gets the most?
    Does government help or hurt?



    Thoughts....?

    The mouse over. It can be your friend, it can be your enemy.

    20 minutes of listening to John Stossel? No thanks. I'll not watch the video and assume he is full of shit.

    Right wingers always so afraid they might learn something.

    The truth is, when Republicans say they want to stop helping people, they mean blacks and browns. They don't realiize those policies will screw them over. Cuz they are white and Republican. NEWSFLASH: Your leaders don't want to help you, they use you. Rick Santorum was right.

    typical racial crap from a racist.
    The GOP is the party that wants policies for all people equally....the democrats want to single out specific groups of people....and enact policies based on class, status, and yes, in some cases race, weight, sex, and sexual orientation.

    So that makes the GOP racists.

    Gotta love the irony.

    Just becuase you dont agree with the sentimnents of a libertarian, doesnt mean he is full of shit. He has an opinion and he lives his life according to his sentiments.

    Perhaps you should be more tolerant of those that think differently than you?

    I am a conservative. I am not a libertarian. I can not comment on the sentiments of a libertarian without allowing my bias to show.
