Well...thanks for calling me low income....

You couldn't give a compliment if your life depended on it....

From what you described earlier in the thread, you seem to qualify as low income.

Anyone who describes themsleves as "making ends meat", I consider low income.

No offense meant, just using the information you provided.


You haven't a clue what my *ends* are...you are, as usual, making assumptions based on your limited knowledge....

For all you know...making payments on my 68 ft. sloop, are included in making ends meet....

Sorry to interject so far into the argument, but you are clearly baiting this guy. You said you 'make ends meet.' I don't understand how any reasonable person could construe that as 'I have a business, livestock, and assets including a 68-foot sloop.' I'm just trying to wrap my head around why you would use that term: 'make ends meet.' I guess if you have a herd of anything you probably have land for them to graze on too, right? What I am getting at here, is you come across as rich. Not wealthy, but rich. And I just don't understand why you are representing yourself as poor (sorry, low income) in a debate such as this where the involved parties' incomes are extremely relevant.

Nice straw man argument from someone posting from his mother's basement.


Oh, you got me, I have been exposed.

But really, jealousy will get you no where.

I really don't know why I bothered to read this political thread.. sigh... propaganda anyone..?? should I spoon feed you all some more? Goodness.. I'm not going to get into my current economical class let's just say it's no where near wealthy.. and no i'm not a romney fan... nor will I swallow horse manure and call it for the good of the nation..

honestly does no one remember it took FDR 4 terms 4!!!.. to get us out of the depression?? 4 terms peeps (by gasp a democratic president..) but obama isn't doing his job??.. puhlease even Romney said it would take him 8-10 years with his infamous non plan that he has yet to identify what it is exactly..
Let's ask the voters of Mass what they think of former gov. Romney.. oh thats right.. they're voting BLUE... hmmm what does that say?

I fully support using government t as the primary charity provider.

I certainly trust the US government over these giant charitable institutions which are nothing but giant fronts for elitist institutions like the Catholic church, and the Mormons, and throw environmental extremists in that group.

Yeah, I think everyone should have to contribute to charity. Why not, being that I am forced to provide charity to corporations.

Each tax dollar these private charities avoid paying is another dollar the politicians are going to try and pull out of my pocket.

So giving food to people who need to feed their families js not helping them?


It's like the modified old saying goes. You can give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. You can teach a man to fish and take 90% of the fish he catches but at least he'll have a spoon full of fish each day until he withers away and dies.

Current federal employee that didn't vote for Romney. I can say however that like you said, most are. At least here in my work center, out of 22 of my employees, only 3 (including myself) have voiced our vote for Obama. Everyone else remains silent or has stated Romney.

The only course America can sustain is embracing Capitalism. Everybody has a shot at success. An entitlement society will be dumbed down slaves.


That's a good little Republican.

Vote to appease your masters. Bow down to those wealthy elite.

Because you know, they might just leave us, and the poor little peasants will never be able to survive without our lords.


I think just maybe you meant to say.

That's a Good Little Democrat.
Bow to Appease Your Masters:

Bow Down To Those Wealthy Elite:

Bow to the leaders of other Nations you feel are more important the Citizens of the Nation you are there to Represent!

Not in the long run. It makes people dependent on government. If they get food stamps long enough, it's no longer a temporary help, but an expectation and a "right." "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." Food stamps is giving a man a fish for a day. Now we have generations of families that consider welfare their income, their rightful income. Generations!

This cannot continue.


I see you've almost got it right. But you're missing the fact that Romney's corporate buddies will take 90% of the fish they teach him to catch. His other corporate buddies will wipe the lake dry of fish all while polluting the water until no fish grow. Then what is knowing how to fish going to do for the guy when there are no fish to catch?

All of this was analogy... based on fish. Seriously... make more jobs at minimum wage doesn't solve the problem. No healthcare benefits for those jobs doesn't solve the problem. Take food stamps away from them because they now have a minimum wage job does not solve the problem.

Lets also not forget the fact that these companies would still keep as few employees as they can simply because management operates better when they have fewer employees to manage. Additionally, those high level management and business owners get greedy!

LOL no doubt however it's the thought behind the action that counts right.. and showing respect to other foreign dignitaries is considered a good thing in my book unlike someone who wants to start a war with our most beloved ally england... hahaha i'm not mentioning any names.. but I am all about the freedom of this country and your freedom to pick the dumba$$ of your choice.

It is truly sad that you all have continued to argue about which corporate servant is better. They're both bought and paid for and neither give a poo about any of us. I would find it much more acceptable if your arguments were over candidates like Jill Stein and Gary Johnson, at least both of them pretend to care more about issues that are important to real people and not big corporations that none of us are a part of. You mice do the same as the other mice in this country, argue with each other rather than to the men who are truly responsible for the hole we are all in together. You do realize that these men of which you defend would not do the same for you, right? Like it or not, we are all in this together and until we stop fighting and actually make an effort to work together, nothing will ever change.

For the purposes of this thread, let's go ahead and place the "wealthy" threshold at $250,000 income.

So how many of you are "wealthy"?

The reason I ask is because if you aren't over this threshold and you are voting for Romney (or the GOP), you are voting directly against your own economic interests. You are voting for those that are already wealthy to become more wealthy. You are voting for those that have less (this being you) will have to sacrafice more in either taxes, tax credits, deductions, or social services.


edit on 4-11-2012 by Taiyed because: (no reason given)


I have to agree with you and say I know a number of these people - small business people (contractors of various types especially) who do just this thing.

I think it's a form of delusion and they think on some level that if they vote as if they were rich, they are or will become rich.

I'm taking a fellow to the polls tommorrow that I have know for a few years. He's in his early 70's, had a stroke about 7 years ago and lives rent free in a room of a kind (modest) friend. He has no savings, his only income is Social Security and his medical care is provided by the VA (he served one tour). He is voting for Romney, says we live in a Socialist county and that he wants the country back.

I don't get it.

In most elections is pure ignorance but in this specific one it's mostly racism I'm afraid. Sad really.

To the nit pickers and those defending this illogical stance - be brave look at your own motives for voting Romney or supporting Romney. I've not heard any good arguments in favor of a Romney Presidency = anywhere.

The author of this thread set a hypothetical limit on wealth that I'd challenge as well - I'd put it at several million because, these days, to be considered a real person (not an other) it takes hundreds, if not thousands of millions of dollars not in income but of net worth. Net worth is a better measure of wealth then income in my opinion.

I really don't like these "you don't speak for me" or 'you're wrong and a commie to boot" replies. It's childless beyond belief, shows a profound lack of education (not surprising with the state of US schools) and an inability to deal with reality.

Thank you for starting this thread.

You do realize that Romney doesn't believe in government? Are you so sure that your job won't be cut or out-sourced. Delusional I tell you.
