You're right Daddy! Those dumb butts that voted for Romney are either wealthy or morons!

You don't seen to realize there are a large number of Rural voters that receive government assistance. One attribute of IQ is understanding and comprehending information.

An IQ test wasn't required when Bush was elected twice..."People on welfare shouldn't vote"...So if you lost your job (due to no fault of your own) and you apply for welfare you are saying you should also lose your vote? Never mind the fact that you have been paying taxes toward that welfare for years.

I think it was Churchill who said something like the problem with democracy is that half of the voters are stupid...

I have a hard time agreeing with people on welfare for more than 6 months. Because there are jobs if you're willing to take a step down or back. And sometimes, that's life. Six months should be the limit then I think it's fair to those of us who do produce for society to have more rights than those who don't.

The only thing we pay into are the pockets of those who think they are entitled to our money. Rather it be someone who is one welfare or a politician who wants something for his/her district, state or whatever. Even though we think we pay in, it's seems to be month to month...meaning that we pay in December for those who are not working in December. The money does not sit in a fund waiting for us if we fall on tough times.

Actually here is the quote I was thinking of...

"The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."

Yuppers! We'll all be able to put that saying to music and chant it as the water slowly comes up over our heads.

You should give it a try sometime. Just to see if you can do it.

I couldn't agree with you more. That's absolutely the way most hard working Americans feel. America has been a country of boundless opportunity for more than 200 years. Over the past few decades however, the dream has been coming apart, simply because there are so many people who’ve chosen to live a totally unproductive lifestyle. They do little or nothing to add to the country’s financial health, rather they draw freely from the various welfare programs that were originally established to provide "temporary" assistance to families in need.
As recently as 50 years ago, young girls had no access to birth control pills and somehow, even without that safeguard, managed to avoid pregnancy prior to settling down with a life mate. When they did settle down, they were careful to keep the number of children they had at manageable levels. Often both husband and wife worked as soon as the 2 or 3 kids they had were old enough to go to school. They both worked because they wanted to be sure that their children were provided with all of the opportunities and advantages that America had to offer. These opportunities were available to virtually anyone who was prepared to work hard and practice sound financial planning.
More recently there has emerged a growing segment in the population that prefers to live off the labor of others. They go out and get pregnant while they’re still in their teens, notwithstanding that there is absolutely no need for any woman to become pregnant nowadays. Once pregnant, they choose to live a life of ease, languishing about their government supplied housing all day long and irresponsibly becoming pregnant every year or two. They have no financial concerns because of all of the temporary safety nets that our liberal socialist society has set up to ensure their comfort and security. Eventually, of course, they begin to complain that they are victims rather than beneficiaries. They feel that they are not being provided with adequate benefits for themselves and the 5 or 6 children they’ve had with 3 or 4 boyfriends. Usually, these boyfriends disappear into obscurity without ever being made pay for the offspring they’ve produced and so the taxpayer is left to pick up the bill for all of the needs of this constantly growing family. In the meantime, the recipients of all of this taxpayer assistance continue to complain that they are not being paid enough money for food and clothing for themselves and their children and the housing that the state is providing is inadequate and located in an undesirable area.
After living at the expense of the taxpayers for a decade or two, they develop a sense of entitlement (which is often passed on their children.) No longer do they see the taxpayer as their benefactor, rather they see them as cruel dictators who deny them and their children all of the wonderful things that every American is entitled to enjoy.
