The subsidies he is speaking of are foodstamps, EITC, child tax credits; read the essay, you might learn something. He said he is a conservative.

focusing on taxes and wasteful government boondoggles like ObamaKKKare is sufficient....adding a religious crusade is counterproductive....
Crusade? Christians are pissed. They are particularly pissed at the government singling them out for, what appears to be, intentional belittlement and humiliation. If 'whomever' doesn't specifically address their concerns, a lot of potential votes will be lost. I don't think we can win unless all those issues are front and center. Something for everyone.

You're setting the bar too low Lily. Woodtick57 has no respect for progressives or anything they believe in. His only point of reference is marginalizing the fanatic right wing extreme of the Republican party. He realizes these morons are destroying the political tool he needs to protect his wealth. He's condescending, arrogant and self-serving.
This is a classic example of sleeping with dogs and then later complaining about waking up with fleas.

Since Obama took office, the number of Pell Grant recipients has risen by 3 million a 50 percent increase since 2008. We don't expect to see the results of increased educational opportunities like the Promise Neighborhoods program for many years to come but that doesn't mean Obama hasn't made a difference.
Pell Grants are a scam available only to the poor while driving up the cost of college for the middle class...just another way that Obama screws the middle class.....

I haven't heard if Charlie is talking about the Medicaid expansion; that will be how he will win; although Scott did change his mind and was ready to do it but the R legislature blocked it.
Lots of things happen in an election year for sure. What is the wide margin? I thought I read 8%?
He also should restore felons rights to vote and move to end mandatory sentencing for drug crimes. It's enough of this prison state.
More felons voting means more people voting for your candidates; talk about sick.

February 1, 2014, ABC News:

Another psycho republican:

"An upstate New York man who police say appeared to be fixated on Barbara Bush has been charged with threatening her father, former President George W. Bush, after he was found in Manhattan, heavily armed in his car, according to a federal criminal complaint.

Benjamin Smith allegedly yelled "Bush will get his," after he was arrested Friday in midtown Manhattan, where he was found in his car with a rifle, machete, gasoline and two boxes of ammonization (sic), according to the complaint."

LOL. In your warped mind, anything that helps the poor advance in society screws the middle class. You are such a frightened little martyr.

<quoted text>FOX Sports is OK as is local FOX, such as myfoxorlando.com which broke the Trayvon Martin story and which never let up on the Anthony's as they lied to all the other media outlets.
FOX Nation and FOX online is a different story however__it's content belongs to Roger Ailes, a true scumbag pos and then of course his bosses the Murdoch's of tabloid and wiretapping fame.

If you're not willing to pay your fair share of taxes why do you feel entitled to use my roads?
My property taxes pay for schools, why do you feel entitled to send your children to my schools?
My property taxes pay for police protection of your house. You're welcome.

Yeah, you got me. I just said I was 6 foot 4 because I figured that was Shaq's height and I knew you would be scared of me because of that...

220 pounds is also like some kind of sumo for a guy that is 6 foot 4, so I just made up that number too...

Are you guys so scared of right wing reprisal that you pretend we are all dumb, short and weak like yourselves?

Maybe you faggots should stop watching GLEE and hit the bench once and while so we don't flick you to death.

See Woodtick? If you aren't a left wing wacko you are still the enemy of the left no matter how moderate you are.

By attacking other right wingers you are only making sure the left gets more power. You are a useful idiot to them.

You apparently don't understand that the US was not founded as a secular country.

No wonder you are so wrong about everything.

i do pay my fair share and really more...or at least i used to when i made a lot of money...

again, everyone gets the exact same amount of gov't, the fair share would really be our govt cost divided by adults. but you wouldn't even come close to being able to cover your cost...

fortunately, we have a very progressive tax system in the US. we do that as it works and gives us a viable tax base.

you can send me your welcome card anytime for paying your way for you...and your kids.
