    And there we have it, another ignorant view of being conservative, another liberal who believes the Federal Govt. is the answer, another liberal who believes personal social problems can be solved by the Federal Govt. Another liberal who thinks with their heart instead of their brain.

    You think a conservative gives a damn how much money you have or how you spend it? You think any conservative would vote for redistribution of wealth? Not sure your definition of class warfare but bet it differs from mine for I know of no conservative that promotes talking from someone else to give to another person. Most that I know support free will and the consequences of making poor choices.

    With all due respect I doubt you could be more wrong.

    If any group in the US has been more aware of Obamacare and its ramifications they have disappeared from the face of the earth. Fact, Ted Cruz predicted at least 20 million people would lose their plans and was either "stupid" or "lying" according to Democrats.

    And despite the convoluted syntax, no one can say without being dishonest what conservatives can believe anything in such sweeping and idiotic posturing. How can anyone make a stupid claim as to infer that recently elected "pols" are the same hypocrites as Obama and co.? If they campaigned against it it usually means they against it unlike every one of Obama's claims.

    And just how do your square that with the Dems meme that Obamacare was NOT an issue?

    I would suggest that you might want to engage the grey matter on where the Democrats stand today, what relevance they have to the American voter, if any, instead of hammering on steel with insults about the victors in the last election.

    Apparently, your definition of "class warfare" simply means "taxing the rich."

    My definition of class warfare is taking from the rich to give to the poor and demonizing those rich people. If a rich person WANTS to give to the poor, great and that is what happens when people get to keep more of what they earn. You don't seem to understand the concept

    So the demonization of the poor, that's not "class warfare." Okay.

    Who demonizes the poor? Liberals who want to use them for props to retain and grow power. People like you love to spend money in the name of compassion. Do you believe it is compassionate to create dependence?

    I have to agree with this. There is no more demonization of the poor than those who think they are too stupid or too incompetent to make it on their own without government help. There is no more demonization of the poor who think the poor can be made more rich by making others less rich. There is no more demonization of the poor than those who think big government is the answer to all of societies ills and who give no credit for those who would improve their lot in life on their own given incentive and opportunity to do so.
    "I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it." --Benjamin Franklin 1776
