    a handout is taking money from those who earned it and giving it to those who did not

    tax cut is not the same thing.

    Whether or not Americans had a right to a handout doesn't change the fact that it's still a handout. You're trying to twist English into shapes it has no business twisting.

It's your opinion, which doesn't give you the right to twist English into shapes it has no business twisting. If I argued (from opinion) that anything Obama promised Americans weren't handouts by virtue of the fact that Americans deserved those things anyway, you would rightly dismiss that argument as garbage.
    so you think taking less from someone who owns something is the same as giving what one guy earned to another who did nothing to earn it is the same

    do you think all wealth belongs to the government first

    No one stole the election. Vapid morons elected an incompetent moron as their 'leader'. 98% of black voters voted for a guy who has presided over a doubling of unemployment within the black community due to the ever so convincing platform that he was...black. College students voted in bulk in favor of a guy that has nearly doubled the debt they are going to be stuck to buy whatever 'progress' there has been. Hispanics and gays voted for a guy that waited til the last few months of his presidency to demonstrate how much he 'cared' for them. There was no chicanery or thievery...just a bunch of morons selecting their 'king'. Sure...you COULD blame the GOP for submitting Romney in opposition (surely his 47% comments didnt exactly help), but its highly unlikely it would have mattered who they ran.

    No...no one 'stole' the election. there was no need to 'steal' the election.

    you are still wrong. you confuse taking less of what someone owns and giving someone the property of others.

    If you didn't see Class Warfare hiding behind every corner you'd see how patently absurd your position is. Romney promised rich people a tax cut, which is a financial incentive, which is....a handout. Whether or not you feel those people were deserving of that tax cut doesn't give you the right to change English. That crap may fly in the courtroom but it don't fly here.

    Yeah, they are.

    At least, no more or no less than having a social safety net. Unlike those that vote for social programs, those that vote themselves tax breaks can personally assess the individual value of that benefit. Romney voters knew, with considerably more precision, the personal financial benefit of a Romney vote than Obama voters... hence, were more likely bought.

    This silliness notwithstanding, the question of what should be within the commons (what government should spend money upon) and how it should be paid for (or how we should tax and spend our collective wealth) are valid questions in any election. Sorry, for you, the more people see the value of a social safety net than a lean tax structure.
