It is impossible to compete with FREE

It seems like the democratic party runs on giving away things for free in life and it is hard to come up with an argument why someone shouldn't receive free shit life. It is impossible for a politician to run on rugged individualism because that would require people to actually be self-sufficient human beings who work for a living. It is much easier to tell people that for everything you can't afford the government will give to you for free. That sounds really f'n great to most people because you can't argue against free stuff. Companies give away free stuff all the time and no one will argue against it. I think a politician should just come out and say everything you want will be paid for by the government. End of story! That was we can move away from this losing argument and move on. Land of the FREE and home of the Occupy Anything movement.

Of course. Socialism is always born and promoted out of the belief that "I can get others to give me free stuff!".

And it's extremely hard to combat the idea of "free". Left-wing ideology is entirely built on the myths, that someone else will pay for it. And they vote mindlessly on whoever will offer the most goodies.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.
We are not sure about who to attribute this too, but it is very accurate. The fall of the Roman Republic, was almost exclusively due to this.

And the fall of the USA as a world super power, will be because of this. I don't know when, or how long we can keep juggling the budget, but at some point, it will crash, and we won't be worried about illegal immigration anymore, because people will be immigration from the US, instead of to it.

Do you mean the Bailout? That did suck but anyone who thought the company should go under was immediatly called a heartless human being for letting the workers suffer by LIBERALS! Please tell me who supports bailing out the rich?

It's easy to compete with free. People don't value what's free. The question becomes one of the quality of your customers.

Possibly the only good thing he did--I see. A liberal who supports the bailout. There goes the theory that republicans are the only party that sends welfare to corporations. Wouldn't you just feel better if you just came out and said I really think that big business should be immune from the free-market which would create a very unequal economic systems between big business and everyone else or I support big corporations.

Republicans send welfare to corporations? I think this was probably their first time.

More Democrats vote for the bailout than Republicans, so it's really the Democrat bailout.

Everything has a price...

The question one should ask oneself when accepting that free lunch is why the price of the drinks are so high.

Really? Name one. Obama Phones? Green Energy grants? What would you point to.

Oil n farm subsidies come to mind . Military industrial complex is a biggee.

Oh, and they are gw bush phones by the way .

First off, there are no oil subsidies. Just a lie.

Second, farm subsidies? The Republicans have been against farm subsidies for ages.

What's the number one top farm subsidy? Corn. Why.... ? Ethanol. Green energy. That's you people on the left. Not us on the right.

Obama Phone

While it's true the first free government funded cell phone was in 2008, in the last 3 months of GWB presidency, the fact is the program greatly expanded under Obama.

As for the Military Industrial Complex... that's not a "freebies". IF you do not produce a tank... you don't get no money. There is no Solyndra of the military, that gets millions of dollars, and disappears into the ether.

We are paying for a military. Totally different than paying GM to research batteries, and have them come up with nothing, and then a few years later, have them go bankrupt, and us have to bail them out with even more money.

And out of everything listed in this thread, providing for national defense is a fundamental duty and priority of the Federal government. Quite frankly, without the need of a national defense, we wouldn't even have a constitution. We'd still be under the articles of confederation.
