    That's true. Government can only create jobs by hiring people, or spending money so others will. J, do you want government to do that?

    sure thing but also include those that are PAID by the government as well then. That would include DoD personnel. NSA, Etc. they are dependent on the government paying them. The literacy test would also exclude rednecks, NASCAR fans, and trailer trash that typically vote republican.

    Allowing the least of our society to steer this Country into the ground.
    you would exclude all of he GOP base

    Its NOT going to end well and especially for the people who are sucseptable to political manipulation and Democrat false narratives and plattitudes.
    if you only think the "right"'is successful and all those on welfare are on the left you have no clue and YOU would be excluded from voting as well. I know many trailer park, NASCARoving, welfare recipients that love voting for the GOP.


    enjoy getting rid of the GOP with your method!

    I do, but only when absolutely necessary.

    No matter how you look at it, when the government hires somebody or spends money, it does so at a cost to the economy somewhere along the line. At best, it's a push. But when the cost of getting that dollar spent to where it's going or that employee hired is figured in along fraud, waste and abuse it's not even a push.

    If government spending could create real sustainable, needed jobs and government spending could produce prosperity, everybody in the world would be rich.

    Hmmm? what's that?.....You sure you are talking to the right person?

    If you are talking about government spending more money in some convoluted stimulus, NO I don't want government to do that....I'd like to see them exit stage left, and allow business to get busy without having to pay tribute to Lord Obama and the progressive pukes.

    Typical of socialist policies. They aim at the wealthy but hit those they thought they were going to help. Works every time, but they just ignore it an press on.

    It's insanity... doing the same idiocy over and over and expecting a different result.

    You shouldn't. But that's what happens when you say government is responsible for unemployment.

    your post I quoted was full of hypocrisy.

    what a maroon! probably too dense to even see it.
