Blah, blah, blah

Power base

That poor couple. They are barely making it. He works his rear end off at two jobs while she works during the day and goes to school at night. They live in a tiny apartment and own a old beat up car. They work at minimum wage jobs. They will never get anywhere and need our help. They will never achieve the American Dream. They are adored by the left.

Same couple after 10 years of hard work: She works at an executive job and he is a sales manager for a large firm. They make great money, have a great family, live in a huge house, and drive very nice cars. The same couple is now the enemy of the left.

They love us when we are down and hate us when we succeed. They dream up all kinds of government programs for us when we are struggling. They want to help us. They want government to be our parents. They like to tell us that we cant do it without them. They will give us free rent and these special stamps that can be used for food. They will even give us money every month so that we don't need to work.

They don't tell us that they do not want us to leave their nest. They want us to stay on all of their programs because it gives them power. Power to tell us what to do, and power to tell us how much we need them. Power to run the government and our country.

They love you when you are poor and struggling. But do not dare try to achieve success. You will be hated. You will take their power away.

Posted by Scott Barr, Realtor (Pacific Sotheby's international Realty) over 10 years ago

I could never stand the Boss..he's from New Jersey, what do they know...lol  They don't know how to drive thats for sure.

And it looks like they don't know how to vote either.

Kevin - have you been spying on me?  That story closely mirrors my own.  I worked hard through college, had a scholarship to pay part of my tuition, worked and took out student loans and graduated with honors.  I never felt deprived, I just kept working because I knew it would pay off and it did!

Ever notice that the more money you have the easier it is to be a liberal?

I saw 'The Boss' a few years ago and had been excited about going to the concert.  He took a forty minute intermission to spew all of his liberal garbage and I haven't listened to him since.  If he comes on the radio, I change the station.  He can have his belief, but a concert was not the proper venue for his propaganda.

Kevin, what if your story took a different turn at "same couple after 10 years of hard work" - husband has a debilitating heart attack, wife gets cancer - insurance companies shake the couple like a bad case of fleas, couple loses home, their children suffer, etc.?  If it is liberal to want to help those people, then call me a liberal.

Jay, Bad things do happen to good people, but when failure is no longer an option there becomes less incentive to strive and get ahead. It is so easy to see all the hurt and suffering in the world and the human side of us wants to do something about it, but you can not fail to see all the good in the world also. I believe in all my heart that something needs to be done about healthcare, but to implement a system that has failed everywhere else is not logical. Do you really believe that our government is any more capable of running it that the other countries who have tried. Maybe they will  run it as well as they have run social security.

Jay,

Of course we all hit brick walls in our lifetime. Some of us handle it ourselves while others want someone else to handle it for us. The problem that I see is libs want to take money from one to give to who they feel is more needy. They want the govt to forcibly take from us. Conservatives give to what is called charity. Voluntary giving it is called. It works, just look at churches and groups like United Way and Salvation Army.

My wife has a debilitating illness. It has cost us lots of time and money. I simply work harder. It has been the great motivating force behind our financial success. We will take no money from anyone, especially not the govt. In fact, my wife, who was raised by very liberal parents, has told me that she will never take govt money. I am with her on this.

Optimism and a firm belief in the Lord sure make life easier.

Kevin ~ God Bless you and your wife. You both are an inspiration to all and are great Americans.

I for one am proud to know you.

Posted by Broker Nick, Broker Nick Relocation Broker Service (South Florida Real Estate & Development, Inc.) over 10 years ago

Nick,

You are also an inspiration to me. All of us conservatives must keep fighting the good fight or this country is doomed.
