So now the Democratic Party Plantation members just want to sit home and collect another check simply for existing.

Concerning this stupid redistributive scheme, I think former PM Thatcher said it best, "Sooner or later you run out of other people's money".

At some point members of the Democratic Party Plantation need to learn to provide for themselves and not prey on hard working Americans.

No the only way to fix everything is to abolish money altogether. Money is the root of all greed. We have been brainwashed into thinking an economy has to be based on money, it doesn't. Poverty should not exist and neither should an elitist class. Once we do away with money, we put everyone back to work even the fat rich people.

In what socialist or communist country has this worked? N. Korea? Venezuela? Cuba? China?

The suggestion of "abolish money altogether" is another example of pie in the sky liberalism that doesn't understand how the world functions.

It's no surprise that the Democratic Party Plantation is pushing this absurd idea.

Laziness and self-pity, cornerstones of the Democratic Party Plantation, can't be legislated away. In this "moneyless" pipe-dream world the same % of people wouldn't work (or higher %) and the working class would be preyed on just like today.

Che pushed this kind of bulls*** and look at where Cuba is today.

it would create a whole new larger class of non working negros and illegal immigrants.

with more and more people depending on government who is going to pay for all these giveaways ?

remember boys and girls what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of.

now do you want more jobs or more welfare moms?

It's funny when some schmuck cries communism or socialist. All those countries still have money and greedy power mongrels. Abolishing money has nothing to do with liberalism or any other ism. You educated(brainwashed) sheeple sure do love your labels. Take it all away, money is nothing more than a form of control. The greed pie is all smoke and mirrors.
