Oh but I have, it's YOU who stands by your liberal Dem party regardless of what they do wrong. I suspect you vote a party ticket too instead of the person and the issue. How sad you are so misguided. More Tin Foil Hat interference...

The Democratic Party isn't liberal. It's just not as conservative as the Republican Party.

Ultra liberals give them a bad name, just like ultra conservatives do to Reps. The fringe do neither of us much good. I'm somewhat right of center but far from the far right. As I've said many times, I vote the person and the issue, not the party. Neither holds my true feelings on all issues but rather a mix of both.

Were it not for primaries, I'd not be registered to either major party!

I agree with you 100%,Ultra liberals give them a bad name, just like ultra conservatives do to Reps. The fringe do neither of us much good. I switched parties, now I am a libertarian.

Why do you insist upon labeling other people when you don't want to be labeled yourself? You libs are all...--Sound familiar?

My bad, I mean ultra libs and forget to state it as such. I've no problem with libs overall, although it seems most vote a str8 party ticket<sigh>.

Since I'm a registered Rep (for primary purposes only) please feel free to label me Rep or conservative, I don't mind. If I could vote in a primary as an Independent, I'd change affiliation again and do just that.

Here's where using some brains comes in handy.

If you want a simple job to hold you over, dummy down your resume. Don't put that PhD in physics or masters in Engineering.

Employers won'r hire you if you are overqualified.

And, if you are in the other end of things, if you don't have a HS diploma, you will need to suck it up and may have clean toilets before getting to President of the company.

I always vote for smaller government, less government in my life, and less social programs... needless to say, as a result, I never vote democrat (although I was a fan of Bill Richardson... and Bill Clinton wasn't that bad either).

I could go along with government growing when the true need arises and it actually provides a needed service, however in truth it grows because government in general wants us to be dependent upon it, to be in control, which makes us end up as its servants instead of the other way around as was intended. For that reason I advocate for smaller government too, fed, st, & local.

Traditionally, people have gotten elected by promising to do things....either building things or preventing people from doing things. Both of these endeavors cost money. When the economy was great and the wealthy were happy to pay taxes commensurate with their good fortune, there was plenty of dough to keep our roads and bridges sound and our prisons big enough to hold real felons. And when people relied on taxed booze as their primary source of chemical enjoyment, we had a lot of revenue from that, too.

Today the wealthy pay a tiny percentage of what they did in, say, the 1950s. And a higher and higher (no pub intended) percentage of the population choose to indulge themselves with chemicals that aren't taxed....in fact, we spend a fortune trying to stop them from using those drugs. And while this is going on we are spending trillions on multiple wars without asking anyone to buy war bonds.

Is it any wonder government hiring is way down, our roads are falling apart, and our prisons are full of pot growers and vendors?

Don't look for things to get better real quick either. When you fund social programs with (example for discussion sake only) taxes on booze or cigarettes, then discourage their use and people follow suit, the revenue slows but the need doesn't. We fund all manner of stuff with totally unrelated sources then cry when that revenue stream slows or dries up. Its been happening here for decades, same with the feds.

Gas taxes pay for a portion of road maintenance, yet those funds have been raided or misdirected in part for a lot of other hocus pocus that has nada to do with gasoline. We nt everything under the sun, but don't have the means to fund it all nor are we willing to pay the taxes necessary to properly fund these things.

The comes the inevitable graft and criminal element we read about on a weekly basis at all levels of government. Add them all together and you have the recipe we've been feeding ourselves for quite awhile now.

Okay.

Without what we could call "welfare", the economy would go into a tailspin. It's simple: Money and other aid given to the needy (and the not-really-needy, but-pretending-to-be) is spent almost immediately, and almost entirely on goods and services. This increase the flow of money through the economy, boosting GDP, tax revenues, and profits.

Farmers would take a huge hit without food stamps (one reason they're administered by the Department of Agriculture), and your 401(k) would take a big hit if poor people couldn't buy all kinds of things that those stocks you're invested in rely on for value.

be careful what you wish for. It's like people who think we should deport illegal immigrants. What are 10 million empty houses and apartments going to do to the banks who lent money on them, or retirees whose rental income depends on them, or to your home equity? Aren't there enough empty houses to make you happy already?

The idea that money is "wasted" is ridiculous. It's like water....there's the same amount of water now as there was a billion years ago. You can't create or destroy it (well, you can, but it's practically never done).... you can only change it from one state to another, or move it from one place to another.
As dry as it is here, it's flooding somewhere else. Every time you flush the toilet, that water goes somewhere. It doesn't disappear. It doesn't transform into air or dirt or fly into outer space.

Same with money. Unless you do something silly like burn currency (which technically isn't really worth anything at all, but that's another story) you're not wasting money. It's all subjective. Money doesn't care where it's spent or by whom. You don't need to worry about hurting its feelings or making it mad. But you CAN move it from the wealthy to the poor or from the poor to the wealthy.(Pssst..... More people - especially the middle class - do better when it's the former)

By the way, did you know that the rate of suicide among the wealthy is higher than in the general population? Wouldn't they be better off with less money?

Look for other reasons why you worry about "welfare". There's an issue you're not dealing with effectively, so you're manifesting your anger in a way that "blames" the less-fortunate among us, and those who would help the less fortunate.

I know, you probably had a rough time as a kid. But that's no good excuse for being a dick or a raving bitch now. If you want to blame someone for the state of the economy, blame the rich. They've had their way with us for 30 years now, and if things suck it's because of that, not despite it.

The group you mention last in your partial post above is the problem, not those who truly need assistance. Its all about how inclusive the program is & how lax the rules and those who monitor them are. That's the problem with the program(s).
