Every one of these quotes by our Founders applies to today. I especially liked this one:
“If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy.”
-Samuel Adams
They would probably start another revolt. King Obama today isn't much different than King George then.
However, communistic-like ideologies have complicated a power elite ruling class.

"Editors of The Associated Press condemned the White House’s refusal to give photojournalists real access to President Obama, who prefers to circulate press release-style pictures taken by his own paid photographers.

These official photographs are little more than propaganda, according to AP director of photography Santiago Lyon."

Barack Obama knows that the Democratic Party and progressive Americans don't really care how he gets there, they just want more government control.
If the President has to deceive to do that, so be it. I have studied the man and my analysis of him has been accurate and fair. I have never demonized the President, insulted him, or tried to marginalize him.
He is a committed left-wing man who believes the USA would be a far better place if only we would all listen to him. And he'll say pretty much anything to make his progressive vision come true." - Bill O'Reilly
Which means Obama thinks we're too stupid to know what's best for us because he's the smartest one in the room.

His vision is our vision because he's the smartest one in the room.

We have to take what he tells us we need and be grateful because he's the smartest one in the room.

We are chastised for criticizing him because he's the smartest one in the room.

Or, as my mom would say, "the smart-ass" one in the room.

(I can read O'Reilly's inner thoughts, you see. I know what he wants to say but resists saying. We're on the same wavelength.)

Funny how history repeats itself given enough time and enough dupes.
Just think if we had lost the Revolution. You would've been a blind loyalist back then too.

Vehicles & Small Engines
Because higher ethanol fuel blends (like E15 and E85) have less energy content than regular gasoline, they deliver lower fuel economy and cost consumers more money at the pump. They are also corrosive when used in most automobiles, meaning they can harm engines and compromise vehicle performance. Even so, our government is mandating increased ethanol in our fuels, putting biofuels mandates ahead of the safety and convenience of American consumers and manufacturers.
Decreased Fuel Economy
Ethanol contains 33 percent less energy per gallon than gasoline, and vehicles fueled with ethanol cover fewer miles per gallon than those running on conventional gasoline. The higher the ethanol blend, the lower the fuel economy, meaning consumers must fill up at the pump more frequently.
Damage to Vehicles and Performance
Beyond the damage to your wallet, ethanol can also damage vehicles and affect performance—corroding metals, causing rubber to swell and causing engines to break down more quickly. Some ethanol blends should not be used on certain engines and motors at all. EPA’s E15 waiver covers only 2001 and newer motor vehicles. E15 is not appropriate for heavy-duty vehicles or vehicles built before 2000, nor is it fit for boats and small motors, including those in lawnmowers and chainsaws.
Higher ethanol blends may also damage newer automobiles. A study from the Coordinating Research Council, commissioned by U.S. automakers and oil companies, found that 25 percent of cars approved by the EPA to run on E15 experienced engine damage—and even failure. The study estimates that at least 5 million cars currently on the road have similar characteristics to the cars that failed as part of the study.
Automakers, aware of the damage ethanol can cause, are now advising new owners not to fill up on E15. For newer vehicles still under warranty, use of E15 may constitute a violation of warranty terms, leaving customers on the hook for costly repair bills. Toyota and Lexus have even placed warning labels on gas caps, along with instructions in the owner’s manual not to use E15.
Intermediate blends may also cause some non-road engines and motors to run at higher temperatures and experience unintentional clutch engagement, according to a Government Accountability Office report.
Libtard logic!

Better hope your insurance covers it.

"Americans who sign up for Obamacare will be getting a big surprise if they expect to access premium health care that may have been previously covered under their personal policies. Most of the top hospitals will accept insurance from just one or two companies operating under Obamacare."

"The Internal Revenue Service shared highly confidential tax information of several Tea Party groups in the IRS scandal with the Federal Election Commission, a clear violation of federal law, according to newly obtained emails.

The public watchdog group Judicial Watch told Secrets Thursday that it was former scandal boss Lois Lerner who shared the information on groups including the American Future Fund and the American Issues Project."

Here's what you don't seem to understand, those 2 people hire 1000 people to do various jobs, thus allowing those 1000 people to buy cars. More people than just the rich buy cars. I don't understand why you loony left wingers have such a hatred for the rich (other than you've been told to hate them). Take the money you make from the rich folks and get rich if you so choose.
The only obvious conclusion here is liberals prefer to be lazy and apathetic.

Everyone has the same opportunities in this country.

Or used to anyway when jobs and the economy were more important than the ruling class dictating every aspect of our lives.

Unless you have another explanation.

Poll: More Americans Want To Keep Or Expand Obamacare Than Repeal It
The Kaiser Family Foundation found that 47 percent of Americans want to expand (22 percent) or keep the law (25 percent). Conversely, 37 percent said they wanted to either repeal the law and replace it with some Republican alternative (13 percent) or repeal it without replacing it (24 percent).
That's despite the fact that more Americans have an unfavorable view of the law (44 percent) than a favorable view (38 percent), according to Kaiser.

<quoted text>They really should teach these sort of things in school - How to balance a checkbook, how to budget, buying in bulk, cutting coupons, etc. There is a lot of money wasted, I will agree with you there, however growing up poor sometimes it was choice of home heating oil, putting food on the table or paying the home insurance bill in full.
This is why the rich get richer and the poor struggle -
When a bill comes in for let's say $1,000 they pay it in full, a poor person with the same bill doesn't have $1,000 so they make payments and pay interest and at the end of the day they pay more.
It's a vicious cycle that poor people get caught in Flack, be glad you never had that problem and I hope you never do.
I fully do not expect you to understand.
Poor people remain poor because they buy stuff that they cannot afford and do not need.
