    Sure. But aren't there some that can?

    Temporarily helping people who can then take care of themselves is not what I am talking about. I am talking about trying to create an artificially equal outcome, which can only be done by penalizing the successful and/or fortunate.
    Any successful or fortunate person who thinks they will never hit hard times themselves because they know to work hard or are just that good-looking, has not had much experience in life.

    So are you OK with SOME socialism for SOME safety nets?

    We should take care of people totally incapable of caring for themselves, through a combination of government and private charity. What we should not do is drag down and erode the incentives of people to be successful by penalizing them when they succeed. The more successful people we have, the more needy people can be helped. One thing allows for the other.

    Are you a bot? You didn't answer my question. I'll pose it again.

    Do you agree with conservatives like Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater who felt that the federal government had no right to infringe on states' rights regarding Civil Rights for Blacks? Should Mississippi have been allowed to keep its segregated schools? Should Whites only private schools be allowed? Should employers be allowed to discriminate based on race?

    You might drive 20,000 miles in a year or you might drive none but you are still contributing to the general societal infrastructure and that is what matters.
    you made my point.

    How about Harvard and lots of other universities discriminating based on race in their admissions? Why is that OK? Why should anyone strive for excellence if they are going to be penalized because of their race?

    Is he spending any money to keep a roof over his head, beer in his frig, food in his belly, gas for his free car? No, he's not. The inheritance is not at all what I have a problem with, I have a problem with people that have had everything handed to them on a silver platter bitching about poor people that can't afford to feed their families. Referring to those who support school lunch credits, food assistance, medical care and rent subsidies as 'worthless libruls'. That's what I have a problem with.

    You're switching gears now. Now you're saying that, because roads are used to ship things like food and other goods and I have to use those goods, that I'm benefiting above and beyond my tax payment. How would you propose to make your tax payment commensurate with your usage? It can't be done, of course. BTW, income and sales taxes pay for as much of road repair and construction as fuel taxes.

    Because of someoneís been kicked in the nuts and is doubled over on the ground, itís OK to give them some preferential treatment for a while and give them a helping hand to get back up on their feet.

    If some people can be enslaved and systematically discriminated against for centuries, they can be helped for a little while for the same reasons.
