The GOP has been successful in creating a stalemate. The red States in America are turning into mud pits. Some of the congressional Red Districts are almost ghost towns with tumble weed rolling through main street bounding off of abandoned and foreclose store fronts. ROFLMAOHow many jobs did Bush create? Or better yet, how many did he cause this nation to lose? Worse still, how many jobs did Mitt, "I like to fire people" and destroy companies" cause the country to lose? Questions Repulsivecans can't or won't answer. However, they're extremely good at deflection, attacking and maligning.
But most of the conservatives, the low income conservatives are prideful people who would starve rather than ask for help. Charities are spilling over, food banks are sitting with empty shelves. But their congressmen never comes by and those people are in support 100% of those congressmen and all unite in hating Obama.
Those are the people that will not take anything from government all because if validates their argument that noone else should be allowed to receiver anything, but they all file for Earned Income Credits at income tax time.
They don't see the supplemental money those credits provide them as federal handouts. That's there false sense of self sufficiency.
