    Depends on how much money plays a priority in your life.

    Extremely rare occurence.

Two big reasons 1) successful women don't tolerate losers, and 2) there aren't enough successful women around who make that much more. Many men are even willing to be the sole bread winner, how many women do you know that will do that? I challenge you to find one, my guess is they are extremely rare. I don't care how progressive she is, women expect men to provide.
    I know two couples who do that. Wives work full time and husbands are full time students. Nothing wrong with that.

That's their platform, forever, without a single ounce of substance beyond that. Just keep feeding programs and handouts and feel-better speeches to buy votes.
    So whites don't use social programs? Your response isn't helping your argument. You're stereotyping people according to race and gender, and calling them victims.

    I mean really, there are well to do and very intelligent women and minorities not trying to enslave rich white men through welfare and food stamp programs.

Perhaps you better examine your own party.
    In southern red states, there is a high proportion of people on welfare, unemployment, food stamps, etc. They just feel their case is different I guess. Welfare is theirs to take, and maybe that's why you get people like Erod just complaining about the minorities getting it.

    I have never been on welfare either. You know there us such a thing as rich liberals, right?

    I know many conservatives on welfare though. I would say they are very socially conservative and against abortion and gays, but not against living on welfare.
