I say that because they have left most Americans behind all along that group has done well as all the rest of have struggled just to get by . I say we have to try other ways until we find the right match where we all do better or we all do badly so we are all in it together .

Most people associate being republican a status symbol. They think people will think they have money if they say "I'm republucan".. when in all reality most people around here are living the dream on credit cards and barely scraping by. It seems that people associate obamacare with everything that is going wrong in the world. Its become the latest catchphrase and people say its bad but when you ask them why.. they cant tell you why its bad. If you think about it.. its not going to cost the rest of us anything.. the point if the insurance is so that people can get insurance that they can afford and pay for themselves. It'll probably save us quiet a bit as you know the tax payers are paying for everyone who gets tenncare.. President Obama is working to get this country out of debt where the last president worked his way into major debt thus a recession. Its very disturbing to see so many people jumping on the bandwagon of being a republican when they really don't fit into that group at all. My advice would be to educate yourself on what both dems and reps are about. Dont listen to people you talk to everyday.. those are mere opinions and not facts. Go to whitehouse.gov and actually read what is going on in the world. I think you would be suprised at what's going on that is good in the world and with this administration. Sure people are getting laid off from their jobs. This isn't because of Obama.. its because there is a recession and companies are cutting their budgets... because of the recession that started with the last administration!.

The Obama administration is engaged in wealth redistribution, i.e. take from the rich and give to the poor. You can only confiscate wealth that exists a given moment. You cannot confiscate future wealth, and that future wealth is less likely to be produced when people see that it is likely to be confiscated.

People need to not just be given a fish to feed them for a day. They need to be taught to fish so they can feed themselves forever. If not, they will sit and wait for the next handout. That is why you shouldn't feed wild animals.

If redistributionists were serious, what they would want to redistribute is the ability to fish. Knowledge is one of the few things that can be redistributed to people without reducing the amount held by others. That would better serve the interests of the poor, but it would not serve the interests of the politicians who want to exercise power, and to get the votes of the people who are dependent upon them.

Are you sure about that they say take the poor off welfare and foods stamps and they will seek work . Your telling us if we make a wealthy person hungry for more they will just give up and not produce jobs . Sounds like BS to me .
