This number has dropped, and continues to drop becuase of San Frans gentrification policies. I chuckle everytime I hear a San Francisco politician talk about how much they are for the poor etc.

You see it on this board a lot, people are harping on how we are about to collapse and be plunged into this utter disaster we cannot recover from.


It's cause we've went from $10 trillion in debt to $16 trillion in debt in just the first Obama term. You don't think that once he takes us over $20 trillion that it won't be harder to recovery from?

I reject anyone who thinks Americans are afraid of hard work or cannot see how truly amazing the times we live in are.


Well no, obviously not all Americans. But you really don't see large and growing section of Americans who don't want to work and would rather just get food stamps, disability, etc so that they can sit on their fat asses playing x-box all day? You really don't notice these people?

I do cause for my business I have to hire Americans to do manual labor. And I will tell you flat out Americans do not want to work hard. That's why we have Mexican labor.

It won't be if we continue down a path of fiscal irresponsibility. I promise you will be very afraid someday if we don't change and it won't matter what political party you belong to.

You don't think the GOP has anything to do with our debt do you?

I don't think it's growing. I think there is a small segment of the population that are leeches, but I don't let it bother me or dictate my opinion on policy. Honestly, it's a drop in the bucket, overall.

If we accept that in a capitalist system there must be winners and losers, I have no problem with the government setting a baseline upon which it will not let the citizenry fall below. Not that everyone gets to be a success, but there is a certain level of poverty we find unacceptable as a society. Obviously, you will likely disagree with that. But that's a legitimate policy disagreement between the parties. To keep this on topic, I wouldn't expect the GOP to compromise on welfare.

, we do have some shite to clean up, because the problems are very real. Overall, though,

it's a boogeyman IMO

yea there are leeches, most people regardless of party despise these people.

Yet the GOP, for some reason thinks that it's going to bring down the whole system, when it's not even a significant issue

Furthermore, according to the GOP, EVERYONE who votes for Dems are leaches or condones leaches when it's simply not sure

constant cough = the GOP as it is today. Angry cranks that do not understand the culture and think it's all about the "47%" and "handouts" and "MSM". Imagined excuses for a complete failure.

Cough, the GOP may never win another national election.

If you or anyone don't think the GOP needs to change it's policies and campaign strategies, you will lose alot of power over the next few decades.

TImes have changed. This isn't the 80's anymore. Whites make up a smaller percentage of the electorate than they did then and government is going to have to be used as an instrument to solve some major problems. ALot of people have gotten tired of the anti-government/pro status quo mantra the GOP has been pumping for 30 years now.

The ONLY thing I see you understanding Rocket is hatred and racism. You're trolling the shite out of Constant Cough.

Please exlain to me how you are so much smarter than everyone else? I'll take you on if you actually agree to discusss matters rather than use hyperbole and grandstanding.

FTR, I am the minority where I work and I love it. I have a doctorate degree, am a registered Independent, and think that ALL elected officials in both the house and the Senate are full of shite. They are both to blame. Neither party cares about the American people...only their own party.

Right it's all just my imagination and the democrat media complex isn't the driving force behind the growing government welfare entitlement state which is nearing $20 trillion in debt.

Just my imagination.

there is no "Democrat media complex". Well, MSNBC, but no one takes them seriously. So, yes. It is your imagination. Know what's putting us in to debt? Fighting a three front war. Oh, and bailing out the financial sector.

You're afraid of big bad Rocket.

There's nothing to discuss.

We've seen GOP economic policy in action for about 30 years now. Do you think it's shite or not? I'm not asking if some people prosper and if it works for some. Do you think the GOP economic policy is a good long term policy? Don't answer that because the GOP doesn't practice what they preach, except on taxes.

re: How the GOP could rebrand itself


Only the wars and bailouts for the financial sector? Not bailing out gm? Not the stimulus or obamacare? Not entitlement spending? Not food stamps?

None of that is contributing to the debt?
