    Because without having greedy, arrogant, rich bastards to tax, the poor would have nobody to pay for their handouts.

    If we were all liberal, we'd all be equally poor. Discuss.

    Weren't you the guy who made a topic recently admitting you don't know much about politics, and asked people on a right leaning message board for advice? I see you have come far....

    The government LOLberals can just print the money if they kill the golden goose. LOLberals will cheer, sweat and grunt all the way to the grocery store.

    Don't be overly confident. It's not over until it's over.

    But, yeah. It's looking like a LOLberal victory on the presidential front.

    Thanks! And yeah, you remembered!

    I've actually been doing a lot of research since then, and this is actually one of the conclusions I came to. Do you have some constructive feedback to add? I'd love to hear it.

    What makes you say that?

    I've been glued to the news and have quite the opposite feeling.

    1. Why do states that vote predominantly conservative, the so called red states, receive more federal dollars than they send in? Why do the liberal blue states send out more in taxes than they receive back? Sounds like the conservative states are the ones getting the so called handouts.

    2. Why do you assume that all liberals are poor or poor people are all liberals?

    3. What do you view as a handout? I've been working for 40+ years, putting into SS and Medicare the whole time. When I retire in another 10 - 15 years and start collecting SS and medicare (if Romney and Republicans don't fuck it all up), are those "handouts" or are they paid for benefits?

    Yes. You have been fed, and are feeding into the same partisan hyperbole that has taken our country in the direction it is currently going. When you start by generalizing all liberals as poor people looking for a government handout it is hard for anybody in the political mainstream to take you seriously. In case you didn't know, people on this board like Sniperfire, LadyGunslinger, CrusaderFrank etc. are not part of the political mainstream. They are the kind of far right loons the Republican party has been trying to distance themselves from publicly.

    On the other side you have people like Franco and Dean who are equally ridiculous for generalizing all conservatives as rich, greedy, uneducated, racist etc.

    If you are just recently getting into politics I can already see you headed down the wrong path.
