As for your census figures, who cares? The negroes kill each other off as fast as they can pump out rats, and the mexicans are WAAAYY better than the negroes.
Besides; the negroes just alienated them by continuing to persecute GZ....

The Farm Bill & ‘Libertarian Populism’

Can the GOP be pro-worker and anti-government? A bill that showers subsidies on agribusiness is the opposite.

One step forward, two steps back. The Republican Party is like an alcoholic in recovery, with periods of sobriety punctuated by long, destructive benders as it once again falls off the wagon.

In June, a critical mass of House conservatives helped vote down a nearly $1 trillion farm bill that merged all the protectionism and cronyism that dominates modern agriculture policy with the worst excesses of the food stamp program.

Republican leaders were reportedly very unhappy, but the sweetheart deals for the sugar industry and federal crop insurance program are two corporate welfare programs that are totally counterproductive for the taxpayer. Moreover, while it may make political sense to link food stamps and farm subsidies, the economic justification is less obvious.

Defeating the bloated farm bill gave Republicans an opportunity to separate these spending items so they could then trim and reform them both. Without nutrition programs for the poor making up 80 percent of the price tag, welfare for Archer Daniels Midland would receive more scrutiny.

So naturally, Republicans followed a moment of clarity by taking a nasty spill off the wagon again.

Last week, the House passed a farm bill containing all the agribusiness largesse of the one it voted down in June. In fact, the crop insurance program and the sugar subsidies were made permanent. But there was no money for food stamps, combining a fiscal disaster with a political one.

Republicans voted for this monstrosity by a margin of 216 to 12. To be sure, some felt pressure from the leadership to vote for the bill since Eric Cantor and company had magnanimously heeded their request to separate out the food stamp spending. And absent some congressional action, the country would have reverted back to the price controls and central planning of the Truman-era Agriculture Act of 1949.

But the takeaway is that the Republicans once again favor welfare for the rich and politically connected while opposing it for the poor and others unrepresented by K Street lobbyists. Needless to say, it’s unclear that naked redistribution to benefit GOP clients is preferable to such redistribution on behalf of Democratic constituencies.

It’s one of the reasons Newt Gingrich’s 2012 critique of a “food stamp president” rang so hollow. Gingrich tried to make an obvious point that a measure of economic success is how many people are receiving paychecks rather than food stamps. But Republicans too often lack credibility on this point, making it easy for Democrats to suggest his complaints were just racist code words.

Each citizen starts off with one vote. But those with the money buy control of the information that we base our voting decisions on. Optimistically, that takes 1/5, leaving the rest of us with 4/5 of our original vote.

But then the politicians waffle, weasel word, and wimp out. So optimistically, they may try to deliver on 4/5 of what they promised (I won’t bother estimating how much they succeed at delivering — that’d just be depressing!) So now your down to 3/5 of a vote.

Sadly, this time around, the 3/5 compromise means that each of us gives up 3/5 of our vote. The next 1/5 seems to be going more and more to foreign interests (which are probably controlled by some of the same big money people who took the first 1/5) through secretive trade agreements, international banking organizations, etc.

The 14th Ammendment is supposed to guarantee us equal protection under law. But how can there be equal protection when representation is so unequal? And how can we ever hope for equal representation unless big money gets kicked out of politics?

Enjoy your 2/5 of a vote. If you can. Your spouse is probably trying to take half of

We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and cultivated the world's greatest artists and the world's greatest economy. We reached for the stars, and we acted like men. We aspired to intelligence; we didn't belittle it; it didn't make us feel inferior. We were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed. By great men, men who were revered."
-Newsroom
America is not the greatest country in the world anymore because we are NOT informed, and we revere self-serving liars. We still haven't recognized the problem so we cannot solve the problem.
Our hope to turn things around was an honest man who recognized the problem and believed together we could solve it but who we chose not to lead.
In just less than a year, things have already gotten worse. Our government is less trusted, our health care system is about to take a turn for the worst, our deficit is going to continue to grow, more people are going to become dependent on working taxpayers and more money is going to be taken out of middle class income earners' checks.
Employers are putting off hiring for another year and unemployment will remain stagnant.
Liberal democrats will still create invisible wars between the races, genders and classes to divide us and keep our attention off their failure to lead.
In other words, we're on our own if we don't unseat those in the Senate who still don't recognize the problem. Three more years of the same I fear will be too many.
I hope I'm wrong.

If George Zimmerman had offered instead to help Trayvon Martin, offered him a ride home that rainy night then we wouldn't be having this conversation too. We would be celebrating another American success story that starts with helping one another.
