First let me say I am not a democrat nor a republican but am a liberal. With that said...
We do not SUPPORT abortion. We don't go around telling women to just get rid of their babies, wanted or not. We support a woman's right to chose
because we don't presume to know what it is like to be in a situation in which an abortion is considered. Even women who do not believe in abortion
get them. This speaks volumes.
We also do not SUPPORT class warfare, nor did we create it; but we seem to be the only ones who recognize it even exists right now. Everything
suggests the class warfare has come straight from republicans. Union busting, shrinking entitlement programs, refusing to change a tax code that
heavily favors the wealthy, and refusing to do a single thing in congress to create jobs even though this was their platform that got them the mandate
during mid-terms. Not to mention the clear evidence that the income gap is widening more and more with each passing year Republican- and
fake-Democrat-backed legislation passes congress and with each ruling from the conservative Supreme Court.
Your last comment about us enslaving Americans is laughable. Especially considering you mentioned that these so-called "slaves" have no other means
of support. How is it enslaving someone by providing them with support when they would otherwise have no way to feed their family or get their kids
healthcare? People enslave themselves into the welfare system because of apathy and multitude of issues that plague tour society as a result of
below-standard education and sub-par healthcare. I guarantee if we started seriously investing in and reforming our education system, welfare
recipients would plummet in a few year's time. If you actually look at poverty statistics, it is absolutely clear that something is happening beyond
the control of the individual.
To be admittedly rhetorical, a simpleton can see the empathy and compassion for others in liberal stances; however, where is the compassion and
empathy in refusing to care for the needy, supporting tax break after tax break for the wealthy and cuts after cut to education, health programs, and
law enforcement programs? Where is the compassion in forcing others to conform to the ideological beliefs of others while also refusing to provide
alternatives other than idealistic pipe dreams that have never been a reality in human society? In fact, all of this points to self-preservation and
a lack of compassion for others on the receiving end of having others personal beliefs forced onto them.
