    Is it? I guess you don't consider me "the right" then?
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    Only if they are Military, Police or Fire veterans.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.

    Co-founder of the Heritage Foundation and Ronald Reagan campaign strategist Paul Weyrich makes plain the republican position.

    "I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of people. They never have been from the beginning of our country, and they are not now. As a matter of fact our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down." —Paul Weyrich, 1980

    I've already made my position. Welfare recipients should be allowed to vote. Does that mean I am not "the right"?

    It's funny to see you pad this list with legislation where the chief opposition to the bills were Democrats.

    No, it makes you a dandy exception on that point.

    What do you mean "pad", and no, democrats were not the "chief" opposition to any of that.

    I spent a couple of months on unemployment benefits. If you include EITC (which some do), I've gotten that pretty much every year I've filed taxes. I think there is some merit to the idea.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.
