There were no issues with the poor in urban Gilded Age America either......especially when compared to the Congo.....er....wait.....did I just make a value judgement about the effectiveness of govt policy?
Nobody said there weren't issues. We are talking about our current bloated money-eating machine wasteful government. I don't have any idea WHAT you are talking about. Apparently you are going off on some wild tangent because your love for Obama has driven you mad. It's a mad, mad world.
I know, I know.....talking about the conditions of a population as the result of govt policy....and then bringing up a govt policy (slavery) is dumb.......and forgetting that slavery is big bro run amok is...er....not dumb......er.... is it?He's probably trying to dumb it down for you. WTH, you brought up slavery. Just as dumb.
Y'know, guy, if a particular dogma - no matter how precious that dogma is to you - does not explain the reality of the world, if the success and failure of nations of the world is running completely counter to the way that dogma says it should...
...then maybe, just maybe y'all oughta take a second look at that dogma...because if the dogma of bigger government is automatically worse government were true, then ALL the world's most successful democracies wouldn't have (and have had for over half a century or more in all cases) the kind of government that dogma says is doomed to fail.
Faced with that reality that the dogma says should be impossible, is it really so unthinkable to question that dogma?

Of course you don't, you have not been following along with the topic at hand for at least two pages, liking and commenting to responses to me......but you have no idea what I am talking about....as you respond to me.Nobody said there weren't issues. We are talking about our current bloated money-eating machine wasteful government. I don't have any idea WHAT you are talking about. Apparently you are going off on some wild tangent because your love for Obama has driven you mad. It's a mad, mad world.
