It is a free country only when those elected to govern respect and honor that freedom. Obviously, many Red States just want to win no matter what price to liberty. The Texist legislature is a disgrace to democracy.
It is only a free country when I do not have MY rights violated so someone else can benefit from MY hard work because they refuse to work.
It is only a free country when those who have 'skin in the game', as banjojack put it, are allowed to v**e and those with no 'skin in the game' are not.
It is idiocy to believe that a person who pays no taxes, or is sponging off the government, would v**e any other way than for the person or people who promises to GIVE them more UNEARNED 'stuff'.
You complain about gerrymandering when done by Republicans, and say nothing, I assume, when the Democrats do it. How typically hypocritical of you, if it is the case that you keep your mouth shut when Democrats do it. You want all people in this country to be able to v**e when they:
- should not be eligible because
---- they are not paying taxes
---- they are not contributing to the betterment of society
---- they are an element of the criminal class(yes those in prison now have v****g rights, at least most do)
- are not eligible because
---- they are not a legal resident
---- they are not a citizen
You Liberals want yourself in power so you can take more in taxes from the working class to give to the mooching class.
You Liberals want to say the rich are not paying their fair share in taxes.
You Liberals lie out both sides of your mouth to achieve your goals (no Conservatives are not guiltless in that one either).
You Liberals want to make sure EVERYONE is a s***e to a very few, just as you accuse Conservatives of being, but you instantly deny the allegation and go on the defensive or attack without rationalizing, legitimately, your stances.
You Liberals shout down dissent instead of trying to compromise, but whoa be damned if a Conservative will not sit and engage in legitimate compromise.
You Liberals want to do nothing but take and distribute, not equally, but to your chosen go the best and the dregs will go to everyone else.
I could go on and on and you damned well know I could and you also know I would be completely correct in everything I say, especially when I say the same applies to the Conservatives.
Since I have touched upon the topic of giving away, you might be interested to know that when it comes to giving things away, Liberals are willing to give away someone else's earnings without reservation, but when it comes to their own, guess what....
You should be able to believe the first article as it comes from one of your ilks favorite websites. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/james-peron/conservatives-charitable-giving_b_1835201.htmlhttp://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2012/08/22/jacoby/NXAEKAAJzDeSuxK8QqG7iI/story.html?camp=pmhttp://www.newsmax.com/ThomasSowell/Conservatives-Donate-Liberals-compassion/2012/09/10/id/451295
The next article seemingly contradicts those above until you look at the metrics used to come to the conclusion.http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2012/10/21/study-conservatives-and-liberals-are-equally-charitable-but-they-give-to-different-charities/
