The gist I'm getting from the anti-G.O.P. crowd is that Butter Cookie must be afraid and must always see herself as part of a victimized group and deny her individuality.


I have yet to meet a Republican who is not always afraid and looking for some safe enclave cloistered in a crowd of ambling groupthinks.

I think you need to inform yourself a little more before you reply to threads you know nothing of. For those with children, the tax credit you get for having them is often a sizable chunk of money. It's quite common for people with no income, many kids, to get thousands of dollars in tax refunds every year. It's just how our tax system works. Yes its broken, but it's liberals that push this stuff through congress.

I have no idea why you would question her ethnicity. Is it because you believe that a black woman can't make it without the government helping them along?

I wish people would learn that neither party truly represents the people of America anymore. When people figure out the only thing either party gives a damned thing about is the money and power by belonging to their corporate masters, then maybe they'll put an end to the group think divisive politics.

But I doubt it. The us versus them mentality is just popular right now so it's not going to go away anytime soon.

Only a person fabricating this scenario would include statements such as "girl, I don't work!", in an attempt to make the situation sound authentic.
This lingo, learned from 10 minutes of The Parkers probably, was so obviously used to draw us in and think it really happened.

In reality the OP would simply say her friend doesn't work and is proud of it. Why did she recevie a tax return anyway?

The original post is a joke. It has little to do with the reality of being on government assistance and is blatantly bigotted in the way that it portrays the reasons blacks vote Democrat.

I suspect the OP is an older white male Tea Party member.

The Democrats created the nanny state where women are rewarded with more welfare money with every child they have as long as the father isn’t living with the mother. Kids grow up without a positive male role model, drop out of school, get into trouble, end up dead or in prison and some see the welfare state as their only option and the cycle starts all over again. This has destroyed the family unit in the African American community.

Thank you for your observance and diligence. I am very much in agreement with you about the PARTY LINES and PARTY influences. I want to thank you again for recognizing the differences between the parties and what their platforms and agendas are all about. I think most Americans miss the mark on this period. Most don't even care. If no one was involved in politics at all, what would ever get done to protect our FREEDOMS from the rest of the world that hates us so much ?

So your saying this person doesnt exsist and is a figment of your imagination. So if someone else posted something you dont agree with, would they exsist? Or would they be someone else? One often wonders.

I think you might be right. The whole Republicans freed the slaves statement comes off as propaganda. Nobody who follows politics would think that the Republicans of the 1800s are the same as the Republicans today. I doubt the Republicans would free the slaves today. I not even sure the Democrats would do so today.

You need to learn the history of the parties and realize that the ideologies of the parties have changed throughout history.


You could learn to learn some history yourself. Woodrow Wilson set back black civil rights 75 years when he segregated congress. That would be the liberal Woodrow Wilson.

Tell us all how the Republican vote will end freedom


Have you not listened to any republican talking this year? Abortion will be illegal, birth control in many states will be illegal, companies will be allowed to pay women only 2/3 of what men get paid, insurance companies will be allowed to drop peoples' medical coverage again for dubious prexisting conditions, taking away peoples' voting rights.

Then when you factor in how many people will be bankrupted by eliminating social security, medicare, medicaid, and unemployment it will end freedom for tens of millions who will be bankrupted. But you'll have liberty to waste gas and destroy nature, if you can afford it.

Almost everything you mention has nothing to do with freedom and has everything to do with embracing dependency -the opposite of freedom. And please cite me a state that will make birth control illegal.

In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti-African American racism and fears of lawlessness among Southern white voters and appealing to fears of growing federal power in social and economic matters (generally lumped under the concept of states' rights).


Seems like you are just suffering from Stockholm Syndrome


I think the Republican Party is horrible but calling them racists against African Americans is ignorant and stupid. No offense but I puke in your general direction.

You do realize that there are large populations of "minorities" in the South?
There are tons of high ranking GOP members who are black too! (And Latino, among others).

Let's take that "I disagree therefore you're racists" garbage back to the gutter where it belongs, please.
I don't support Dems or Reps, but let's play fair and stop the childish immature tactics.

Lol, and people say ATS isn't right wing. It also proves most people on ATS are as dumb as the sheeple they scream about. You can't sit there and proclaim to know about the NWO and then turn around and support a political party. I also find it funny about some "Libertarians" and "Anarcho Capitalists" are here cheer leading a political party.

What it tells me is that 90% of you don't believe any of what you say you do. Carry on fighting over Coke V. Pepsi.

He could be a giant pink unicorn or Mother Teresa, it wouldn't change the fact that the content of that site is garbage


Being black doesn't make him right, just like being white wouldn't make him right/wrong!

That's great that you could name TWO people in the GOP who havent totally sold out.That only leaves another few hundred who approve of the very policies you claim to oppose.

It's sad you think someone critical of the GOP automatically makes them a Democrat.

But, I'm used to that sort of thing on ATS.

Intelligent people dont vote party line.

Speaking of alleged "intelligence", you obviously didnt read my posts. Being a harsh critic of the GOP, I surely would not "automatically" think anything. My point is that of the 2 pathetic parties, only one has an inner movement that supports personal responsibility and individual freedom. That is the Republican party.
So, whatever "you're used to", it appears your mind is already made up, as well, regardless of actual words and reading comprehension abilities.
Intelligent people don't filter out everything but what they want to respond to.

I don't identify with the establishment Republicans any more than I do the Dems, but at least a faction of the Republican party has more or less "rebelled" and is becoming a force that is demanding fiscal common sense and personal responsibility.


Do you actually believe that? Can you name who these Republicans are who are demanding fiscal common sense and personal responsibility? Ten bucks says they voted for NDAA and SOPA, the Patriot Acts, etc.


Yes, I believe it because it is very evident. While I am talking more of a growing grass roots movement, there are certainly some who have been elected that have followed through. Many haven't.

The most obvious example is Congressman Paul. But there are others.

Representative Jeff Landry of Louisiana - introduced legislation to reverse the new abuses of the NDAA. The Dems attacked his proposal as, you guessed it, "racist" against Hispanics because his focus was on citizen rights and didn't apply to illegals.


Ah, yes, like those attacks from FELLOW REPUBLICANS like congressman tim griffin.

dailycaller.com...

www.newworldorderreport.com... ut-due-process.aspx

Your partisan blinders apparently only find fault in one party.

I'm smart. I find them with both parties.


Rand Paul is an open adversary of the Federal Reserve and has voted against the legislation you mention.


Ah, yes, Rand "Romney" Paul. Great choice.



The movement within the party is a very real thing and whether they like it or not, the politicians must acknowledge it. And they are doing so. It is the personal responsibility (imagine that) of the citizens to hold their elected officials to their word.


Oh, bullcaca. The VAST majority of the 'tea party caucus' have voted for the Patriot Act, NDAA, and SOPA.

Do I think the Republican Party establishment will bow to the movement? Absolutely not. They will pretend to, but will avoid doing so at all costs. Again, it is the citizens' responsibility to ensure it sticks.


The Democratic party could never, ever embrace this concept because it completely relies on blaming others and of doing anything and everything to avoid responsibility. The Republicans suck but the Democrats are just plain pathetic and laughable.

A party that embraces weakness and victimization while demonizing success and individuality is a sickness. A pathetic joke of an ideology and an establishment.

Nothing I have stated here is in support of the Democratic Party. So I have no idea why you think attacking them Dems makes your case stronger. (actually, I DO have an idea why...)

Oooh. Ad hominem attacks and logical fallacies of many flavors.
Good fun.
