Original Chinese Proverb
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

2012 UPDATED VERSION:
Give a man a welfare check, a free cell phone with free monthly minutes, cash for clunker autos, food stamps, section 8 housing, free contraceptives, Medicaid, a hundred weeks+ of unemployment checks, a forty ounce malt liquor, access to drugs, and designer Air Jordan shoes, and he will vote Democrat for a lifetime.

Give an elderly person their social security and medicare they've worked for all their life and they'll vote democratic. Because, the republicans are trying to cut social security and turn medicare into a voucher program that'll cost seniors an average of $3,000 a year. At the same time they're cutting taxes on the rich and increasing defense spending.

Plant fear, superstition, and the false hope of being in the %1 into the minds of the masses, and they'll vote Republican for life.

No way is this true! I draw S.S, and have medicare, and I am republican, and will be voting for a change in November. I can't say for sure about your last part, but I do know for a fact we will be much better off when we make a change in November. We are headed down a path we do not want to go down. This is our only chance. "We the People" know this! Watch our turn out in November.

Romney supports the Paul Ryan budget which cuts social security benefits and turns medicare into a voucher system for the states to manage. Research it. CBO estimates this will cost the average senior an additional 3k per year.

Another way that businessmen ensure loyal little Republican peasants: convinve them that your taxes should be cut so that you can give them some of your money, aka "trickle-down" economics. Once your taxes are cut, keep the money for yourself, and then blame it on the Democrats.

Works every time.

I believe most of us know we will be better off with a change in November regardless!

Unfortunately, there won't be one, because both candidates are the same.

We republicans had a great chance to nominate a Christian, fiscal conservative this year and we blew it. Nobody to blame but ourselves for Romney. He's never stood up for anything he believed in his life. Changes his mind every time the wind blows and now won't even release his tax returns. What a joke.

Surely you would agree that either of the 8 candidates we had would be better than the one we have now. Many of us "We the People" feel this way.

I do agree. Any of the Republican candidates would have been better than Romney. All the others were Christians. None had ever supported abortion, gun control or gay rights. None of them authored the healthcare plan that became the model for Obamacare. I don't think any hid their money in Swiss bank accounts and off shore accounts. None of them ran a business that specialized in off-shoring jobs and buying up companies, then closing them and causing jobs to be lost. I believe all of them would have released their tax returns. So, yeah, we Republicans put ourselves in this situation.

I am just fine being in this situation. We can know for a fact that our Nation will turn around from the direction it is going.
It is our only chance. Our children and grandchildren need this.

I know we had 7 good Christians up there and we picked a Mormon.
