    I love how they've convinced themselves that everyone collecting welfare is a Democrat.

    And that is part of the problem. It seems the electorate has become so involved in the showbiz of the campaign that we tend to ignore the candidates record and experience. It is a vote for the best campaigner, and often the freebies they promise, more than who would make the best President of the United States. This leaves room for charlatans with no real record of accomplishment to simply tell the people what they want to hear rather than pointing to their accomplishments and credibility.
    I don't believe Perry is electable. Christie has a long way to overcome "bridgegate." Romney isn't going to run, and has said so more than once. We had our chance back in '12. Jindal is a possibility. I'd like to see Huntsman give it another go.
    I think Perry is very electable after four years, Romney is 60-40 to run, 'bridgegate' was terribly over-hyped and should be ignored though Christie might lose for other reasons,, and Huntsman should seek the Democrat nomination. I like Jingal too but he doesn't have enough national exposure and, dare I say, certainly lacks in charisma. Ron Paul will go nowhere and Paul Ryan should wait.

    I suspect the final Republican candidate will be someone not currently on the radar.
    I get that feeling as well.
    The final Democrat candidate will either be Hillary or someone not currently on the radar.
    As with me that leaves a lot of room, but I don't believe Hillary can win.
    Let's hope that whoever does finally win the WH has successful governing experience this time around.
    Oh, you bet!! The country , and the world, is desperate for good (and hope Great) leadership. That's why I discount Hillary.

    The 35.4 Percent: 109,631,000 on Welfare
    August 20, 2014 - 4:35 AM


    109,631,000 Americans lived in households that received benefits from one or more federally funded "means-tested programs" — also known as welfare — as of the fourth quarter of 2012, according to data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau.

    The Census Bureau has not yet reported how many were on welfare in 2013 or the first two quarters of 2014.

    But the 109,631,000 living in households taking federal welfare benefits as of the end of 2012, according to the Census Bureau, equaled 35.4 percent of all 309,467,000 people living in the United States at that time.

    When those receiving benefits from non-means-tested federal programs — such as Social Security, Medicare, unemployment and veterans benefits — were added to those taking welfare benefits, it turned out that 153,323,000 people were getting federal benefits of some type at the end of 2012.

    Subtract the 3,297,000 who were receiving veterans' benefits from the total, and that leaves 150,026,000 people receiving non-veterans' benefits.

    The 153,323,000 total benefit-takers at the end of 2012, said the Census Bureau, equaled 49.5 percent of the population. The 150,026,000 taking benefits other than veterans' benefits equaled about 48.5 percent of the population.

    When America re-elected President Barack Obama in 2012, we had not quite reached the point where more than half the country was taking benefits from the federal government.

    It is a reasonable bet, however, that with the implementation of Obamacare — with its provisions expanding Medicaid and providing health-insurance subsidies to people earning up to 400 percent of poverty — that if we have not already surpassed that point (not counting those getting veterans benefits) we soon will.

    What did taxpayers give to the 109,631,000 — the 35.4 percent of the nation — getting welfare benefits at the end of 2012?


    • 82,679,000 of the welfare-takers lived in households where people were on Medicaid, said the Census Bureau.
    • 51,471,000 were in households on food stamps.
    • 22,526,000 were in the Women, Infants and Children program.
    • 20,355,000 were in household on Supplemental Security Income.
    • 13,267,000 lived in public housing or got housing subsidies.
    • 5,442,000 got Temporary Assistance to Needy Families.
    • 4,517,000 received other forms of federal cash assistance.


    How do you put in perspective the 109,631,000 people taking welfare, or the 150,026,000 getting some type of federal benefit other than veterans' benefits?

    Well, the CIA World Factbook says there are 142,470,272 people in Russia. So, the 150,026,000 people getting non-veterans federal benefits in the United States at the end of 2012 outnumbered all the people in Russia.


    63,742,977 people live in the United Kingdom and 44,291,413 live in the Ukraine, says the CIA. So, the combined 108,034,390 people in these two nations was about 1,596,610 less than 109,631,000 collecting welfare in the United States.

    It may be more telling, however, to compare the 109,631,000 Americans taking federal welfare benefits at the end of 2012 to Americans categorized by other characteristics.

    In 2012, according to the Census Bureau, there were 103,087,000 full-time year-round workers in the United States (including 16,606,000 full-time year-round government workers).

    Thus, the welfare-takers outnumbered full-time year-round workers by 6,544,000.


    California, the nation's most-populated state, contained an estimated 38,332,521 people in 2013, says the Census Bureau. Texas had 26,448,193 people, New York had 19,651,127, and Florida had 19,552,860. But the combined 103,984,701 people in these four massive states still fell about 5,646,299 short of the 109,631,000 people on welfare.

    My favorite parts of that image:

    1) It's not from the 2008 or 2012 election, as it is often presented. It's from 2004.
    2) Land doesn't vote.

    I agree with most of the above, particularly the part about the showbiz of the campaign.

    I'd be very surprised to see Romney go back on his word not to run. He promised his wife he would not after all. Unlike most of the candidates, he's a man of principle.

    While Bridgegate may be over hyped, you haven't seen anything yet compared to how hyped it will be if he becomes a serious candidate.

    And don't discount Hillary as unelectable. She knows how to spin and how to campaign, after all, and that's what gets people elected.

    America...grow a spine.
    My biggest fear is that the threat of terrorism will fundamentally change America not from the terrorists attacks but from our own government. Another major attack on US soil and I could see Partiot Act II being put into place further eroding citizen privacy and granting more unenumerated powers to our government. There may come a point where our own government is much more of a threat to your average citizen than ISIS or another terrorist group ever will be.
