I'll give you a hint: half of our population is living partially or totally from federal government checks. If you are one of those people, would you vote Republican????
Son, that describes much of the various flavors of tea parties.

They're all willing to give up someone elses government money. And it doesn't have to be strictly a government check. It could be something as simple as a rural airport.

The biggest problem with cons is you have all these groups agreeing with you. But what all these groups REALLY want to know if you're going to take away the OTHER tea-p money instead of theirs!

Good point. Boehner doesn't like hand outs... or so he claims.

But he fought long and hard for the F-35 alternate engine that no one, not even the military, wanted.

that district is something else even the people there are.

Poverty in John Boehner's District

(part of the article)

Indeed in 2009, childhood poverty rose over six points in the Boehner district to reach 19.1 percent , or 29,173 kids. Overall, 14 percent of Boehner’s constituents live below the federal poverty line of $22,400 per year for a family of four. Shared Harvest’s work has more than doubled—it distributed approximately 7 million pounds of food in 2007, and 16 million pounds in 2010.

Senator Feinstein has announced her Bill for gun control. It is NOT a stretch to consider it treasonous,in contridiction of the Constitution. Her elected office should not protect her from these allegations......
I wish her bill was more egregious. The bill she introduced doesn’t stand much of a chance of getting through Congress. It may not survive the Senate. Her initial comments on this included confiscation. Had she gone for that, it absolutely would have died in the senate.

Many Democrats will be hesitant to vote in favor of another weapon ban. The NRA took direct aim at all members of the Congress and Senate. Many of them lost their jobs.

The Democrats are testing the waters to see if this is the legislation the US Citizens finally put their foot down on. I think it is. I've been calling congressmen for three days. Phone lines are tied up. I truly think the US citizenry is offering the phone call as a pre ass stomping curtesy. Not to give an ultimatum, but to tell ones self, I tried the nice way.

That might make sense being that he's not much of a conservative. Not many on the far right have much to say about him. I know I was disappointed when they voted to keep him in power.

Also on the dole are government workers which DumBama expands all the time. Commie Care alone calls for the ability to hire more IRS agents, have more bureaucrats and bureaucracies. If you just got a job with the federal government, would you ever vote for Republicans?

As far as handouts go, try this experiment: next time you see a raccoon or a stray dog, give them a nice meaty steak bone. After a few minutes, approach the strange animal and try to take it back and see what happens. This is nature.

Democrats understand this nature. It's instinct in animals and humans. This is why DumBama's main goal since taking the White House was to get as many people as he could dependent on government. Expanded welfare rolls, food stamps, Obama phones, birth control, healthcare......

Only the blind could disagree with me on that. The more government dependents, the less chances of Republicans ever having leadership again. Even if they do, they have to consider what might happen to them if they take that steak bone away.

The Democrat motto is worry about today--today, and tomorrow will be the problems of other people.

The larger the government--the smaller the citizen, it's just that like the frog in the pot of water, by the time you realize what's really going on, it's already too late.

lol! Ah! So Boehner willingly gave up the F-35.

Funny thing is, I see cons doing the same thing you claim dems are doing. But apparently, it doesn't count in your book!

I wonder why?

It's funny that he and his progressive entourage don't realize that nature, and your proposed experiment, apply to us and our second amendment as well.

Really? What "Con" supports expanded government dependency? i thought that's what this dichotomy was all about; welfare politicians vs non-welfare politicians.

And no, I don't want to go back to the Bush years. I'm talking about the DumBama years. We already got rid of that group of Republicans.

lol! All cons do son. Even your last candidate! Now this is what a Romney/Ryan term would have looked like.... "oh, I forgot!"

You people really should vet your candidates, not to mention your personal philosophies. You make for a confusing group... or a lying one!

Paul Ryan Explains Why He Requested Stimulus Funds

NORTH CANTON, OH - AUGUST 16: Republican vice presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) speaks at a campaign event at Walsh University. Credit: Getty Images

Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan released a statement saying that after looking into allegations that he requested stimulus funds from a bill he voted against, he did, in fact, ask for the money.

Ryan said that the asks were treated as routing constituent requests and that explains why he couldn’t recall them.

“They should have been handled differently, and I take responsibility for that,” Ryan said in a written statement released Thursday.

“After having these letters called to my attention I checked into them, and they were treated as constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled,” he also said. This is why I didn’t recall the letters earlier.”..."

I agree, I could'nt believe they voted to keep John Boehner Speaker of the House too but its better than Nancy Pelosi is the way I looked at it.

Perhaps. But that's like saying I lost my garage to a fire but at least it didn't burn down the house.
