See! That's what happens when you don't watch Fox or any other news outlet. You stay uninformed which is pretty obvious by your posts. Congress already cut the SNAP program and more cuts are coming. Let's see this carnage you speak of.

Obama is much like Reagan....he'll bounce back even with the low polling numbers. Thats the way it will happen.
How so? The only way he could possibly do that is to use Republican ideas that will make this country productive again. He's way to pigheaded for that. He has repeatedly said there is no way in hell he is going to get rid of Commie Care, and Commie Care is the largest job killer in the country right now.

Nobody wants to invest or expand their business, no employer knows what is going to happen to their operations once (or if) the employer mandate kicks in, nobody knows if they will have medical coverage in the future or how much more it will cost them. So it's not a wonder why nobody wants to spend right now. Nobody knows how bad this could possibly get.

The #1 problem with Detroit is simply this...WHITE PPL. GONE WILD!!!!!!!!!!
No, the problem with Detroit is the same problem we have in Cleveland: All the white people left. Blacks can't run anything. They don't know how. All they can do is take a bad thing and make it worse.

Cleveland was leading in depopulation until Detroit took first place. Cleveland has been run by black people the last decade or so, and even before that, a majority of black people were running things. So now that Cleveland is on way to Detroit and nobody wants to go there, what does the black Mayor do? He installs more red light cameras. Yeah, way to go black Mayor. Those red light speed trap cameras will really want people to come into Cleveland.

I strongly suspect that the brigade of tea partiers pompously goose-stepping through this forum in full verbal regalia (and possibly adorning themselves with personally meaningful insignias as they prepare their echoed posts) have no idea that they are demanding deconstruction of programs that establish and maintain the very stability that they cherish as a conservative American value and upon which they and their families depend for public order, education, health, security and general well-being. Instead, they seem misguided by an ideologically-driven machine of misinformation that calls for them to betray their own interests in deference to those of the wealthiest, privileged minority that stirs them to betray themselves in outrage over the generally false belief that they pay more taxes to justify what they get in return. Hence their "socialist" nightmare, the "horror" that their brothers and sisters may be "mooching" from them that which is rightfully their own.

It would be a painful but informative experiment to implement their "utopia" for a one-month period, during which there would be a complete moratorium on government programs or even just those that the right wing extremist oppose (as if they had a consensus). I believe that the brief experiment there would result in their disillusionment and certainly an end to the narcissistic goose-stepping and divisive rhetoric. More than a "modest proposal," the experiment may actually be necessary to teach some old dogs new tricks since they appear empathic only to events that personally touch their own lives.

"Saturday, December 07, 2013

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Fifty-five percent (55%) disapprove (see trends).

The latest figures include 23% who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 43% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20."

Utter bull.

No conservative that I'm aware of wants to do away with all social programs. What we would really like is the federal government out of them and perhaps let them be run by the states.

But because these programs are being orchestrated by the federal government, it's subject to massive abuse and politics leaving these programs a target for those who wish to take advantage of them.

Face it, what government worker wants to see people get off of unemployment, welfare, food stamps, HUD? It's called "job security."

More than that, what Democrat politician wants to see less people on the dole? After all, how many government dependents vote Republican? Most vote Democrat because it's the Democrats that toss out the goodies. The more government dependent people, the more likely Democrat votes.

Our country is at a time where the lazy non-working people live just as good if not better than the working. There is no need to limit their family size, they can eat like pigs on SNAP, they get free medical care with Medicaid, they have HUD homes in the suburbs where they talk on their government cell phone, their utilities are paid for, and if you go through metro areas in the winter, you actually see people with their windows open in 23 degree weather.

Working people? On average, they can afford two children. In the winter time, we walk around the house with thick clothing on to save on our fuel bills. Many struggle living paycheck to paycheck for a nice home in a half-way decent neighborhood. We clip out coupons in the paper and buy off brand groceries because they are cheaper.

You're misinformed. We are for the states being in control of social programs and limiting the federal government's power. The people are in direct control of their state governments with little control of the federal government.

States are in control of Federal Social programs to administer in the individual states.

Each State sets it's own requirement for participation in those programs funded by the Federal Government, thus some states optioned out of expanding medicaid.

Recently Obama allowed State Insurance Commissioners to determine their participation in ACA for another year.

There is no such thing as State's Rights, all States are bound by the Federal Government, as all States are created on lands owned by the People of the Unites States or America.

Assuming that there's an actual consensus whereof you represent, your post raises some concerns:

1) Would you advocate ending the Social Security and Medicare programs, copying them as 50 individual state programs, or some other arrangement?

2) How would you limit the federal government's power if it were to have none with all power at the state level? What do you mean by "little control of the federal government?"

3) How would the people be in direct control of their state governments?
