It's the "gimme" mentality. Give me what I want, and I don't care how it's paid for. It's not my problem.<quoted text>Libs believe that the answer to solving a problem is to keep on doing what is not working.
Certainly we all like to support our party and politicians. But when we on the right have a bad apple, we turn our backs on them. And if there is a politician on the other side of the fence doing a descent job, then why change that?
You won't find many kind words about Bob Taft from people on the right. He was a terrible Governor. He was a well educated man particularly in politics, but just because he was a Republican doesn't mean he was success. He was a clown. I didn't vote for him for his second term.
The gimme mentality is why we reelected a failed President. I got my food stamps, I got my government cell phone, I got my HUD home in the suburbs, vote for the guy that gave me all this. Now we are approaching 17 trillion dollars in debt, and the gimme people could give two ships less. It's not their problem. Half of the people in this country depend either partially or entirely on a government check. Almost half the people in this country pay NO income tax at all. Other taxes? Yes they do, but not income taxes, and that's where all the funding for this free stuff comes from.
What we are experiencing in this country now is the cart theory. When everybody is pulling an empty car, the cart flies down the road. As people quit pulling the cart and instead, jump inside of the cart, the cart slows down. When more than half of the people quit pulling the cart and jump in the cart instead, the cart stops. That's where we are currently at today.
