Well Carol, at least John Galt is honest about who he is, an Ayn Randian, self centered sociopath who doesn't care about anyone but himself. You're pretty much the same but try to hide it under a paper thin veneer of Christianity, totally ignoring the fact that the crux of the Gospels is about social justice.
Bill Maher recently had a message for hypocrites like you;
And finally New Rule, it's okay if you don't want to feed the hungry, or heal the sick, or house the homeless. Just don't say you're doing it for their own good. Don't say you'd like to help people, but your hands are tied, because if you did it would cause the culture of dependency, or go against the Bible, or worst of all, rob them of their freedom.... to be sick and hungry.
Just admit you're selfish and based on how little your beliefs mirror the actual teachings of Jesus, you might as well claim to worship Despicable Me.[…]
Now, I am sure there are millions of Christians who try to actually follow Jesus, but you've got to admit, conservatives always seem to have a reason why they would love to give but they just can't. We would love to help the unemployed, but it would discourage working. I believe in charity, just not for people who need it. Of course we'd like it if everyone could see a doctor. We're not monsters, but if the government does it, it will destroy our way of life. Plus the web site is glitchy which leads to Stalinism.
Oh sure, we'd like to help people who are starving, but what if they used the strength from not starving, to take drugs? Yes, there's always a good, moral, Christian reason to tell everyone you meet to f**k off and die.
Bravo!!

so you have a GED education in History?
Perhaps you can use your indepth knowledge of history to clarify the points in the post. Here is the post again in case you decide to put some content into your post:

The USS Gerald R Ford.
I can think of so many better names for an aircraft carrier in the United States Navy. I cannot imagine what motivated naming a carrier after the first unelected president of the United States who's tenure was most noted by the unilateral world-wide retreat of the United States during the Cold War, which continued until Ronald Reagan became president.
A ship in the US Navy has a name assigned very early in its program. I can guarantee the original name for that aircraft carrier wasn't the Gerald R Ford.
Now, just why would this administration change the name to that of what every Democrat called the most inept president in US history?
Hillary Clinton commissioned it. Can you imagine Hillary commissioning the USS Ronald Reagan? Just because of the name, she'd never do it. That's how much she actually respects the Armed Forces... if her complicity in the murder of a US ambassador and 3 other Americans in Benghazi wasn't enough to convince you of that.

The United States Marine Corps turns 238 years old today. While the Marine Corps Hymn speaks of Marines fighting “From the Halls of Montezuma, To the shores of Tripoli,” Marines first fought from the rolling decks of American warships, and in amphibious assaults, during the American Revolution, fighting for Independence and Liberty.

“On November 10, 1775, the Continental Congress approved the resolution to establish two battalions of Marines able to fight for independence at sea and on shore. This date marks the official formation of the Continental Marines.”– 1st Commandant, Major Samuel Nicholas (1775-1783)

You can read the Continental Congress Resolution here.

Samuel Nicholas was the first “Captain of Marines”commissioned by Congress (and also the first officer to receive a naval commission from the Continental Congress), and promptly established the first Marine recruiting headquarters at Tun Tavern, Philadelphia (obviously Captain Nicholas, like most Marines since, appreciated a good beer!). And he knew that is where he could find good fighting men. In fact, as the Marines.com history page puts it:“one of his first recruits was popular patriot and [Tun] tavern owner Robert Mullan.” Another interesting fact about Captain Nicholas is that, much like “The Fighting Quaker” Smedley Butler (aka “Old Gimlet Eye”), Nicholas also came from a Quaker family in Pennsylvania. So, you could say that Captain Nicholas, the first Marine, was also a “fighting Quaker.”

Captain Samuel Nicholas: The First “Fighting Quaker”

Slammin’ Brews and Kickin’ Ass Since 1775

The Marines’ baptism of fire was during the battle of Nassau, when Continental Navy Commodore Esek Hopkins lead a successful Naval and amphibious assault on Nassau, March 3-4, 1776. The official standard flying over Commodore Hopkins Flagship during the battle was the Gadsden flag. Colonel Christopher Gadsden represented South Carolina in the Continental Congress and was one of the seven members of the Marine Committee outfitting that first naval mission, and presented the coiled rattlesnake flag to Commodore Hopkins before he departed for the Bahamas, to serve as distinctive personal standard for his flagship, and was displayed on the mainmast. Gadsden also presented a copy of this flag to the Congress of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. This was recorded in the South Carolina congressional journals on February 9, 1776:

Col. Gadsden presented to the Congress an elegant standard, such as is to be used by the commander in chief of the American Navy; being a yellow field, with a lively representation of a rattlesnake in the middle in the attitude of going to strike and these words underneath,“Don’t tread on me.”

So, Marines, NEVER FORGET that your Marine brothers and ancestors first went into battle with this waving overhead:

Gee, we wonder why that is not mentioned on the official Marine Corps history and heritage page at Marines.com . Sadly, the oath-breaking “powers that be” currently controlling the United States government see that flag as a threat to their power and do not want you to know that it is one of our first battle flags, and that Marine blood was spilled beneath it while fighting a desperate Revolution against tyrant King George. And the spinners of lies and deceit at DHS, and at SPLC want modern Americans to forget that history, and to instead think of this flag as a symbol of “hate”,“extremism”, and “racism.” No, it is an American symbol of liberty, and the resolve to be “first to fight for freedom” against domestic enemies of liberty and the Constitution. Marines, never forget your own legacy, heritage, and history, even if the “official” history passed down by the DOD is erasing it.http://oathkeepers.org/oath /2013/11/10/happy-birthday-mar ines-semper-fi-since-1775/

If the Supreme Court declares the Constitution invalid, then they are also declaring their authority given to them by the Constitution invalid, dumbass. Thus, if the Supreme Court declares the Constitution to not be the governing instrument of the United States, then they also declare that they are not the authorized interpreters of the Constitution, idiot.

The most brilliant thing about the Constitution is it was written so the average person can easily read and understand it. Thus, the average person will be aware that the government has eliminated the Constitution and replaced it with something else.

And, now, the question you will have to answer:

Do you think there are so few Americans who believe in the Constitution that you can do this without starting a major war with the American people?
That's a "yes" or "no" question, dupe.

In regard to your earlier post, I doubt the Republican Party is on its "deathbed". But they could conceivably lose some ground.

As for poverty in America, there was not much of a middle class until the after WW II.

It was under Roosevelt that union strikes were made legal and allowed assembly line workers to bargain more effectively for higher wages.

The minimum wage also elevated the standard of living.

And then there were the safety nets of social security and unemployment benefits.

After WW II, thousands of GIs had the opportunity to attend college under the GI Bill.

These were crucial developments in raising the middle class.

Now I won't deny the role played by entrepreneurs, either.

In the final analysis, it required the influence of both to achieve overall prosperity.
