    Here is the definition of "statism".

    Statism (or etatism) is an ideology advocating the use of states to achieve goals, both economic and social.
    Please tell me which part of Republicanism as practiced by the US has not embraced 'Statism' since 1776? I'll tell you which: None.

    Want to qualify your definition of pathetic crippled dependend pets?.
    I have far more empathy for the 'true' crippled. I worked with an individual this last weekend that was in-the-act suicidal because he realized that he was dependent, would always be dependent, and it made him ANGRY...depressed to the point of self harm...that he would ALWAYS be dependent on someone...some system...for the rest of his life. Inspirational...as opposed to the emotional cripples we see regularly that have been told forever they 'cant' take care of themselves...its not their fault. Able bodied and intellectually capable individuals that have been given excuse after excuse (or disorder after disorder) for failure.

    Yes...I mean it as harsh as it sounds. I am disgusted by the "poor pathetic me, someone take care of me" mindset of able bodied individuals. Our 'welfare' should be reserved for those that truly are in need. And in my opinion, your nephew and grandson are far more capable than those that WONT provide for themselves.

    Not a little ironic that today, advocates of yet MORE and bigger government were only a few months ago defending their right to spend their welfare dollars and food stamps on junk food...

    He was. Then they sat him in front of a television and made him watch public service announcements on soy products.

    I am a little bit lactose intolerant, cheese on a sandwich is OK, ice cream in moderation is OK, but not milk. I use Almond Breeze milk substitute.
    I am also somewhat gluten intolerant, so I limit myself to plain white bread in moderation. Multi-grain and/or high fiber and/or whole wheat makes me sick. Cold cereals are limited to corn chex, rice puffs, and some oats, but no wheat.
    But SOY? that stuff is poison to me...even a little and I have to avoid open flames....

In short, you can't eat pop-tarts every night.
