CNSNews. "If Every Food Stamp Recipient Voted For Obama, It Would Account For 75% Of His Total"
By Ron Meyer
November 14, 2012
Harry Hopkins, FDR's close adviser who ran the non-defunct Works Progress Administration (WPA), once described Roosevelt's strategy as "tax & tax, spend & spend, elect & elect." He believed that if Roosevelt put everyone on the federal payroll, either through aid or federal jobs, that Roosevelt would never lose. FDR won four presidential elections in a row before his death removed him from office.
Did Obama use his idol's model to win this election?
Food stamps rolls have grown by nearly 50 percent-by more than 15 million recipients-under the Obama administration. During that same time, the unemployment rate has stayed the same. Either those outside of the workforce have been decimated by the Obama economy or this administration is making a conscious effort to get more Americans reliant on government. Or both.
Welfare programs now cost taxpayers a record-high $750 billion. While government "charity" has grown, so has poverty-and so has the Democrats' poll numbers.
The candidates and their PACs spent $6 billion for the election. Should we add the $750 billion in federal welfare to Democratic campaign spending total?
Not everyone on food stamps votes or votes Democrat (and no one polls this subset of the population), and I don't want to overstate the effects of the growth in welfare.
If citizens vote in their own personal, short-term interests, with 49 percent of the population receiving some sort of federal aid, Republicans will never win another election. Thankfully many of those 49 percent are elderly voters who want a bright, debt-free future for their children.
In fact, conservatives should take heart that this election was as close as it turned out. It means that at least some of those receiving federal aid are open to conservative anti-poverty ideas.
While liberals throw federal money at voters, conservatives must offer them something more substantial. It's tough to beat politicians handing out free stuff, but we have to hope that careers and purposeful opportunity will appeal to American's ethos.

CNS? They're telling you what you want to hear, same old partisan bubble.

I see the GOP is condemning anyone that says such things. They're really throwing Romney under the bus .

Don't know about that, but it's safe to say that every white supremacist voted for Romney.
Good news is there is not as many as there were before. They seem to be dying out.

Not I. That's one of the reasons that I am not a "REPUBLICAN." Most of the rep establishment are cowards. Romney was a good candidate, best since RR. I know he mades some mistakes, but not nearly so many & so glaring as RR.

WHAT!!! You are nuts and a flip flopper! So now you are bailing on the Republican Party? Romney is as far away a republican can get from the tea party and you ARE a fan of him?

Couple days ago someone said they saw you in the drug store picking up your government meds... Are you sure they didn't give you the wrong meds?

Insulting & utterly devoid of any substance. Also, totally inaccurate. The meds I was picking up were for my deliver route. The drug store was either CVS or Krogers. I have a delivery contract with both pharmacies. You should be ashamed of your lack-of-class hateful self.

Tin Bug, you are the racist. You are the one injecting the subject. You need to study your history and learn that it was the GOP that set you free and not the Demoncrats. Name one thing this part black President has done to improve the lot of the black community. You are a sick child and trying to fly before your wings are dry.

The GOP is not the same party as it was back then a, all of the Southern Democrats switched parties after LBJ. You are the one in need of a history lesson.
It began to slowly change since the New Deal, but the pivotal moment was 1964, after the Civil Rights Act was signed by a Democratic President, and during the '64 Presidential Elections when Southern Democrats threw their support behind Republican Barry Goldwater, who voted against the Civil Rights Act.

Richard Nixon also used his "Southern Strategy" to scoop up disenfranchised Segregationists in the South, many being Democrats. In the process, Blacks and Liberals in the Republican Party and elsewhere, began to shift towards the Democrats.

Southern Conservative Segregationist Democrats have voted Republican ever since.

Today's Republicans = yesterday's Segregationists.

Don't be deceived by Cons today who will revise history and claim that Southern Segregationist Democrats were "Liberals", and how they remained Democrats until this day. There's a reason why the Southern States went from being Democrat-dominated for decades to being Republican-dominated since the 1960's. And there's a reason why Blacks historically voted Republican, and now vote Democrat. The ideology didn't change in the south, nor did it among blacks - the only thing that changed was the party label.

Once again you assume too much. I presume you are hinting at my SS check. You must consider SS welfare. I consider SS a government forced investment plan, that now pays me monthly checks. As a lib, you should defend the SS System, not bad mouth it. My IRA pays me yearly checks. I also paid into the IRA. Do you have a problem with this? It's hard to figure out just where you are coming from.
I get the feeling that you don't want to discuss the issues, but instead, want to discredit others.

Actually you both have been coned by a liberal rewrite of history. We write history as it is and are willing to take our lumps. We told Nixon to resign. How have you handled your scandles?

Where's this "we' stuff coming from. Are you French?

Nixon resigned because he was a smart man. That's all he could do.
If that whole senario were allowed to procede any further, Nixon could have ended up in jail.
And unless one is retarded, no one wants to see a president go to jail. And that's why I thought President Ford did the right thing, even though it must have been a very difficult thing to do, when he pardoned Nixon. The situation needed to end & the country needed to move forward, even though it may have cost him the next election. That was the decision of a great man, to put the countrys interests ahead of his own political career.

Wonder what Romney would have done, given the same circumstances, guess it just depends on what day it was....

"We", indeed.....

You must be starting to rust, Tin Bug. Nixon didn't want to go, he tried to cover up and hide tapes. Pretty much like Oblamea is doing about Benghazi. Again you prove my point about trying to rewrite history. Our President for fear he would look bad before an election, let 4 Americans including an Ambassador die at the hands of a few terrorist when he could have looked the hero and saved them. There is something wrong with a mind that can't adjust to change when they have opened their big lippy mouth in another direction. They're on the run - They're leadership is decimated - I I I I I killed Bin Laden. What a narcissistic, infantile, egotistic, pile of excrement.

And yes, I don't like him and I sure as hell didn't vote for him.

You've already been discredited. I'm just protecting others from you. I'm surprised you don't have an Obama phone since the govt is giving those away too.

So Obama is responsible for Benghazi but he is not responsible for bin laden? Quit being a baby.

FYI- Obama NEVER stood up in front of a sign that said "mission accomplished".
