Moochers and Leachers are the winners

They have found out they can vote themselves a government check by electing Democrats. It's going to be hard to overcome that incentive. Coupled with a poorly run Republican effort the Dems will be in control for a while.

Don't worry, eventually they will run out of other people's money and it will all come to a grinding halt.

Don't forget the homos and the potheads.
They both won big too.

Ben Franklin said this would mark the end of the country.

Urban voters came out en masse on election day to cash in our freedoms for a welfare check.

Yes, but eventually those pushing the wagon will stop and hop on.

Agreed. My jackass neighbor decides to have 6 kids he can't afford and not only do I have to pay for their schooling, but he also has to pay less in taxes because of his irresponsibility.

Middle-class welfare is orders of magnitude more prevalent and rampant than the EBT card crap that goes on as well.

Keep telling yourselves that it's all about people voting for their government checks instead of the country shifting more away from your version of a nanny state and more towards their version of a nanny state. All you guys ever have to say is no. You've become the prohibition party and the hypocrite party.

More and more irrelevant every day.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
― Alexis de Tocqueville

“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.”
― Alexis de Tocqueville

It is very possible what we witnessed yesterday was the first austerity protest on this side of the pond.

They think they have won. Honestly, Obama hasn't done anything for them besides make a lot of promises. Oh, they got a free phone.... I know someone who got one of those phones. If you think Metro PCS, Boost, or Stright Talk is bad. It's a very base phone with not many minutes, and if you want extra minutes, you pay a lot. Talk about getting thrown a bone. lol

1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage'

The "homos" as you call them have been winning for a long time. As a whole the gay community is some of the most productive and successful people in this country. They own business's, properties, homes, pay taxes and are doing quite well.

Just for the record...

I have Straight Talk. I have an Android phone that uses AT&T towers with unlimited data for $50 a month (flat rate).

Beat that!

Every side is guilty of most every sin but we will continue to fail if we cant recognize which side is known for which sins.

Stop defending things and start figuring things out. The left includes the right excludes. That is a damned well understood truth. Finding exceptions to that wont get your the results you want, even if it gives you a talking point.

In complete and total deference to you Rebbe, The left seem a whole lot more vitriolic. I am not sure what you are trying to say so lets call it a draw. I will be reticent on this subject. פריינט?

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful good society' which shall now be Rome, interpreted to mean 'more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.'"
