"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Now 5 years in, as those same Democats blame the Collapse of the Democrat mandated Sub-Prime bubble on Bush, or keep bringing up the two wars which were sent through Congress First, we are currently borrowing and printing just ti stay afloat.
Obama's economy is held up entirely with trillions in QE and its his bigest lie yet.
Instead of admitting failure, he is borrowing and printing to lesson the effects of his economic failure. He's ling since given up on a " recovery".
Your average Obama voter doesn't care because they'retoo stupid to know but the rest of realize that this perpetual QE and Borrowing guarantees that one day, we're going to hqve reconcile with the 8 years of Liberal stupidity and its not going to be pretty.
the same thing happens with pay when you have a big demand for policeman fireman and soldiers with a limited supply then the pay goes up to attract more to become one
There was a time in America when people in the middle class or the working poor looked upon the lives of the successful and the wealthy as something to aspire to, they saw how some people, through their own talent, hard work, ingenuity, gained success and wealth for themselves and their family. They didn't look on the successful as somehow being crooks or frauds or people who don't deserve what they have. They didn't look at their own lives and say I want a government that gives me everything and takes nothing from me to pay for it - take if from that rich guy, he's got more than he needs and doesn't deserve it anyway.
The American dream used to be that anyone, through hard work and discipline, could succeed and prosper. Now, the dream is the biggest government check you can get each month. Some of the most successful people in America today are new Americans, immigrants from much harder lives in less fortunate countries, and they see the promise America has and they work hard to succeed. They know sitting on your ass and expecting your entitlements gets you nowhere. My generation and the generation we have raised are net takers and that's what's causing the decline of economic security in our societies today.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
The average "Obama" voter is no different than the average "GOP" voter. Both sides think "their" guys are the solution. They aren't, they are the problem.
