They may WANT IT.. they may speak this.. I just see them with empty hands at this point.. sorry @Buddy400
... not convinced ...... it's in all of our backyards... they turn a blind eye... yet applaud and defend these CEO's taking our jobs to other countries. it's a FREE MARKET after all...
It is not only republicans who support CEOs taking jobs out of the country. The Democrat party has been as much a supporter of this as the Republicans. The party leaders are all making big bucks off this. They have for a very long time. And they have sold their souls to the corporate interests. There is no difference between the parties in this. And this is a big reason for Trumpís win.
He says that heís going to do the things necessary to being business back here. And he says that he wants to put term limits for Congress in place. We need these things.
Look many of you are defending their right to be do whatever the he** they want.. to give themselves 3 million in bonuses...go for it !!....meanwhile.. next breath... it's completely OK that we're blind to the lower incomes plight... if this is your reality...
Who are you talking about here? Republicans? Libertarians? People on this thread? Not sure.
I think that the issue is not that most conservatives are blind to the plight of lower income people. Itís that they might see different ways of handling it. Giving people a hand up is very different than giving a hand out. It would seem to me that we should strive to get anyone off welfare/support as soon as possible. That means job training programs and/or educational opportunities. What most do not like is turning welfare into a lifelong and even generational life style. How does this help anyone? We need to find ways to get people back to work, off support and earning a good living. That is so superior to welfare.
and you look to the dead Church to be helping these people... (pipe dream- fantasy as unrealistic as a romance novel)...I see your mouths moving.. .but what good it is in the lives of men.. it's similar to those , when they hear of a devastation, of pain, or need .. but all they offer is "I will pray for you" .. "I will pray for you"... and do NOTHING....absolutely nothing to help someone in need.. deplorable..
I agree that the Church cannot be relied on anymore for taking care of the poor. There are way too many sects in this country to get any kind of really strong program out of the over 2,000 sects in this country.
I think that government programs is the way we have to go. It would be wrong to tell a person that they have to go to x church to get support when that person does not believe in what is taught at that church. Often times churches will try to force a person to exercise their version of Christianity in order to get any support. Plus, the churchís no longer have a resources that they used to have.
I get it .. it's not the role of the Government.. that's your position.. so just own it Please.. if Republicans had their way.. people who can't afford whatever ...they just need to pull up the boot straps , if they fall down dead trying to live.. so be it... we're NOT our brothers keeper.. but we'll continue to pass all sorts of laws for loopholes for the rich .. gotta love it..
I disagree with the above. I do not believe that this is the Republican platform. Not all republicans want some church to take this over. Few are ok with the idea of not helping the poor. The questions are how much, for how long and how to get people self sufficient. I
I guess it's official.. I must be a Liberal .... Gawd I cringe with that word.. what did @jld
say the other day .. Politically she is a Liberal & Socially / family wise she is more conservative.. something to that effect...I guess that's me too!!
I think that you are talking in stereo types here. There are plenty of conservatives that are not like what you are describing here.
Yeah because Democrats have brought these things into existence, or do I have this wrong?? Frankly.. I don't believe , without them.. we'd have any of this.. I do not believe the majority of wealthy Republicans care at all... how can they relate to us ?? .. for those who are RICH Democrats... I actually give them some credit !...they must want to share the wealth (and yeah this hits their pockets too)...I'm actually surprised more don't just join Republican ranks so less of their pay is eaten up...stopping these Robin Hood Dem's to giving to the masses...
Rich democrats are just as selfish as rich republicans. I am not sure why you think that there is a difference. Well the difference is that the rich democrats talk a good speal about all this, but in the end the also use every tax break they can get; they get their huge bonuses; and they contribute much less to charity than rich republicans.
I think you are grossly mistaken on the Republican platform. Do you even know what it is?
Just because some guy here says that he does not care about poor does nto mean that he is speaking for anyone but himself.
