    Again, because of people like Romney we do.

    The ideal would be that everyone works a good paying job, and the government is just their to take care of the elderly and infirm beyond what their families can provide.

    I personally find the thought of able-bodied people living on the dole to be abhorent.

    But when you have a Mitt Romney who gets rid of good paying union jobs at GS Steel or AmPad and replaces them with crappy McJobs at Staples with no benefits, you create more government dependency, not less.

    When you close down a factory in the US because those Chinese folks will work cheaper, and you can use the profits to buy yourself an elevator for your car, you create more government dependency, not less.

    You see, funny thing about the working poor. They just refuse to die off in a Darwinian manner.

    If they can't get what they need from their job, they go to the government for it. They get food stamps to put food on the table, they get section 8 housing to put a roof over their heads and they get Medicaid to see a doctor.

    And when the government does more for them than their employer, they are totally going to vote for more of that stuff.

    That you all seem unwilling or unable to see this amazes me.

    See, missed the point.

    Do you ever get the fucking point, or do you just work really hard to be oblivious?

    Firefighters, police, EMS, etc. - all hired at LOCAL, not Federal, levels.

    Neither Romney, Obama, the Man in the Moon have a say-so on the issue.

    Case fucking closed.


    Next...... !!!!!

    One that you were too stupid to comprehend, obviously.

    When you make people dependent on government, you get more government.

    It's so fantastically simple, but the people who get the car elevators spend a lot of money tricking dumb people like you into not seeing it.

    Except the Federal government pays block grants to support their budgets.

    More to the point, when the Federal Government slashes back, so do the States and local governments.
