    Why Are Republicans So Relentlessly Cruel to the Poor?

    Interesting article and much of it chimes with what we see in the UK.

    It has to be coated with a thin veneer of religion to make it acceptable but in essence right wing politics is based on a selfish me me me doctrine. DISCUSS

    Ridiculous. Our poor are wildly wealthy compared to much of the world. Liberals like to concoct sob stories to excite sympathy just to get more and more.

    You don't see anything in the UK.

    You didn't even know how popular Brexit was.

    if you actually thought about it, it is dems keeping them dependent and holding them back. The repubs want them to be successful. Not sure how you get where you got. your facts are messed up.

    What do you do to help the poor or less fortunate!?!

    You seem to like to wiggle your little finger at others, but those like you do very little to help the poor.

    So unless you donate time and resources then you have nothing to complain about when it come to Conservatives and their wish to keep the government out of their ( conservatives ) pockets...
