So you're suggesting that people band together to make sure everybody has what they need. Once this "community" effort became more organized, it
would resemble the social service portion of the government. So you've come up with what we already have but left out the word government.
The government has been vilified to such a degree that you have all forgot that people are the government. And we already try to make sure everyone
in society is provided for.
I had someone earlier extrapolate that the movement would become a greedy corporation.
That fell flat.
Now you are trying to bridge what some of us are tryingto do with the government.
All we are trying to do is free the people who want to be freed FROM government.
The government is not an enemy. It is the people, and the majority have spoken. A great portion of the right assumes that they're losing because of
the so called Santa Clause theory. It's totally bogus! Sure, there are some people who take advantage and indeed are dependant on government, but just
like the right was wrong about the polls, you are wrong about this too!
The major majority of the left do not want handouts. My wife works full time and goes to school full time. I work part time and go to school full
time. We work our asses off and we want Obamacare, we want safety nets, we want social programs, and someday when we're making more than 250K we'll
want to give MORE. We want people to have a fair chance at college.
Sure some rich kid can borrow money from daddy to attend college. What about that inner city kid with one parent working two jobs and barely paying
the bills? They have no rich daddy. This is where we level the playing field so that kid can have a fair chance too! He gets subsideized federal
loans, and the annual college credit. This is not a handout. This is a helping hand for someone who wants to work hard and merely needs someone to
give him that oppurtunity!
Your party needs to consider some tough questions. They need to stop pointing the finger, trying to make themselves feel better. This is called
confirmation bias. You should all be having a conversation asking yourselves what went wrong, not reitering that its someone else's fault.
What do you think minorties think to themselves when they hear you calling them lazy people who want a handout? Trust me, you wont win them over with
this. They just want some help getting started. You clearly have not spent enough time with low income families if you think there sitting around
watching TV, waiting for a check in the mail.
You have a chance to show America that you're not the hateful party people like Rush make you out to be.
All eyes are on the house. They'll determine the future of the republican party.
You can respond if you want but I wont be replying, this lazy ass liberal, has to shut off the Obamaphone, put down the food stamp pizza, and study
the urinary and digestive system on my government provided laptop provided by a government grant for college.
