Economist: Liberals Think Government is Santa Claus

According to Grover Norquist, the president of the conservative Americans for Tax Reform, liberals don’t need to believe in Santa Claus at Christmastime; for them, the federal government is the only magical giftbringer they need in their lives.

On Christmas, Norquist tweeted, “Mom and Dad earn the $, buy, wrap the presents. Children believe Santa did it.”

“Kinda like the view liberals have,” he noted. “‘The government did it.'”

To drive the point home, he followed the tweet up with another dimension to the analogy: “Children grow up and realize Santa is fiction,” he wrote. “The state is the dangerous fiction by which everyone hopes to live off others’ work (Bastiat).”

Of course, those actively seeking a handout only constitute one portion of the Democratic Party’s voter base. Another segment of their voters are what you might call “altruistic” voters. The bleeding-hearts. Many of them know exactly what it takes to create a happy and successful life because they did it themselves. But they either look back at their hard work and mistake it for luck or they feel they are somehow genetically superior than most Americans, making it necessary for the country to coddle and care for them like helpless infants.

The truth, though, is that the most dangerous segment of the liberal voting base falls into neither category. They are the “low information voters” and they are legion. They voted for Obama because he was young and cool and black. They voted for Hillary Clinton because “Trump is a racist.” They don’t even know what the words “conservative” and “liberal” mean, much less which one they are. If Comedy Central, Reddit, and Leonardo DiCaprio agree that Republicans are evil, then that must be the truth.

When you realize this fact, you see how pointless a lot of our political arguments really are. How can you convince these people that their freedom shrinks as the federal government grows if they just thought it would be cool to see the first female president?

This is the true genius of the Donald Trump campaign that so many people don’t want to grasp. He knows what so many other politicians don’t: That there’s no one to convince! The hardened liberals aren’t going anywhere. The voters waiting on a handout aren’t going anywhere. Page thirteen of your education agenda isn’t winning a single vote. It just isn’t.

Democrats don’t gain power by explaining the logic of their political philosophy to undecideds. They gain power by hiding their true agenda behind so many layers of nonsense that voters can’t see who they really are.

A dangerous fiction, indeed.

    What is the saying? “Communism and Liberalism / democratic government comes too an end when there is no more OTHERS’ money too spend”.

  • fidel

    Obama and his perverted agenda is a good example of failure

    • Hgeyer

      Failure? Like the auto industry’s “failure”? Or the banks failure? Or the stock markets “failure”? The only “failure” here is conservatives “failure” to notice how much better off the country is since we ran the last republican president back to Texas!

      • jjmcl431

        @Hgeyer….bah, hum bug. you liberals are like rotten fish. the longer they hang around the worst they smell.

      • Rick D.

        You gotta’ be S***ing me!!! What rock have you been living under these past 8 years? Our national deficit has tripled since in the past 8 years; terrorism is an everyday occurrence; most countries view BHO as weak an ineffective; conservative groups are targeted by IRS w/ Barry’s approval. Need I go on? Can’t wait for this wannabe dictator to leave office on 1/20/17. Unfortunately, he’ll still meddle in Trump’s affairs, I’m sure!!

        • Hgeyer

          Me living under a rock? Seriously? The deficit has NOT tripled in the past 8 years! That is pure BULL$HIT! The deficit is half what it was! The debt doubled when Bush was in office and TRIPLED while Regan was in charge and has even doubled under Obama! Most other countries do NOT view Obama as a failure! Another of your lies! Im sure you don’t even know anybody from a foreign country! I do, and they think Obama is a HUGE improvement over the previous president and Trump is an unbelievable clown and a total moron… Except for Russia that thinks he will make a great puppet! Anti-tax groups were targeted by the IRS for close scrutiny…. gee, people that don’t want to pay taxes investigated by the IRS… big shock. But of course Regan used the IRS to harass liberal groups and THAT was okay for you… NO you needn’t ” Go on” with your lies and bull$hit because people capable of doing their own research know you are full of it!

            Typical Leftist useful idiot – keep drinking the Kool Aid, fool!

          • Hgeyer

            Typical conservative! Can’t handle the truth when you hear it! FYI the “kook aid” line was old when you were born… got anything from THIS century?

          • gerald Hughes

            Why don’t you tell some truth we’ll see, low life lying l;iberal dem bloodsucking parasite.

          • Osamao

            It’s impossible for a liberal to tell the truth. Because they’re Communists and Communists lie.

          • Osamao

            What was that aggravatingly stupid one?

          • Osamao

            Frig the Kool Aid. Isn’t it time to start cracking Commie heads yet?

          • Airborne869

            U sound like a BLM guy…

          • Hgeyer

            Just because I speak the truth?

          • gerald Hughes

            Sorry low life liberal dem bloodsuckers are not qualified to judge truth

          • Hgeyer

            Truth is subjective and doesn’t require someone to “judge” it. The truth just is… I guess conservatives think they can make things true by continually repeating it… Trump attempts to do that and only morons believe him!

          • gerald Hughes

            BS low life liberal dem bloodsucker, truth is not subjective all you scum think so, truth is very objective and is not subject to interpetation.
            so quit lying c-sucker.

          • Osamao

            Um………..No. That would be you lying Goebbelist Communist Democrat Traitors.

          • Shelly Shannon

            Well i would say that there are plenty of morons out there that believed Obama and still do even after he has been caught in plenty of lies of his own.

          • Robert

            Because you are a lyre.

          • Hgeyer

            Now I’m a harp used ancient Greeks? And you aren’t a moron?

          • Osamao

            Spelling police are racist now. You haven’t been keeping up with P.O.S. Chairman Bao’s daily Political Correct readings.

            Born here or swam the river either way you are a low life lying liberal scum bag.

          • Hgeyer

            Please attempt to supply actual facts to show what lies I’m posting… Oh, you can’t because I didn’t lie! Looks like YOU are the true scumbag here!

          • gerald Hughes

            Everything that yopu have posted is a bare faced low life liberal dem bloodsucking lie,

            you fing compost heaps are scared to death you are seeing all of your handouts headed south and you are doing what the liberal dem bloodsuckers do, when they have nothing to say but feel compelled to say something, you lie.

          • Osamao

            That’s a lie.

            From a pure liberal rag, Washington post even. Now go back to your safe space and try to come up with ACTUAL facts to argue your misguided world view.

          • Hgeyer

            Thank you for posting an article that confirms EXACTLY WHAT I SAID ! You provided the “proof” that the debt has NOT tripled like stupid conservatives believe!

          • gerald Hughes

            You are a bare face low life liberal dembloodsucking liar, scum bag

          • highiq

            No newspapers where you live??

          • Hgeyer

            Where could one live that doesn’t have newspapers? I don’t think you could find a newspaper that won’t verify the things I have posted…. only online misinformation sources like Fox News or breitbart that post lies would tell you I’m wrong…. they must be your goto sources?

          • jimshaw54

            Did it ever occur to you that the majority of our newspapers are drinking the brandy that you are drinking (you don’t seem to like the idea of koolade so I will use something that is more in line with your “sophisticated” tastes)?

            Stop to think about this: Why did Donald Trump, who is a gosh awful politician, garner so many votes against Hillary who was deemed a “shoo-in” by all of those newspapers you esteem so highly? And look at where the votes came from: areas of this country where people actually have to work, and work hard, for a living. Very few of them are living off “the dole”, as are many of the voters in our large cities which is where the majority of votes for Hillary came from. They obviously know something what you don’t know, and from what I have gathered from your rants you really do not know very much. Someone who would say that we are much better off after these past eight years must not have been paying attention.

          • Hgeyer

            The highest federal aid recipients are: Mississippi (45.3%), Louisiana (44%), Tennessee (41%), South Dakota (40.8%), Missouri (39.4%), Montana (39%), and Georgia (37.9%).
            Trying to rewrite reality again? This was cut and pasted from a conservative blog site, IJR. com …. but you know how those conservative sites lie….

          • jimshaw54

            Google it again.
            According to KHOU, the biggest recipient for the SNAP program are, in order:
            Louisiana. • Number of food stamp recipients: 868,192. …
            Tennessee. • Number of food stamp recipients: Just over 1.28 million. …
            Oregon. • Number of food stamp recipients: 791,222. …
            West Virginia. …
            New Mexico. …
            Mississippi. …
            District of Columbia.
            I don’t see South Dakota, Missouri, Montana, or Georgia on that list, but I do see two bastions of Democratic voters in the District of Columbia (which, incidentally is surrounded by counties that have the highest incomes per capita) and Oregon which is very liberal Democrat in nature.

          • Hgeyer

            My post was for ALL government aid….

          • Hgeyer

            Please don’t tell me I don’t know much while you are confirming my point the the states with the highest percentages of people on “the dole” as you refer to it, are Trump states!

          • jimshaw54

            Apparently you didn’t read the ENTIRE article, and all of the stats and reasons for the stats. I suggest you go back and read ALL of it, but open our mind before you do otherwise you won’t learn a thing.

            OK, OK, THE GUY GOT IT WRONG…. IT’S A FREAKING BOULDER!!! AND I BELIEVE IT’S FALLEN DEAD ON YOUR HEAD…

            AFTER LIVING OVER SEAS FOR 11 YEARS NON STOP AND VISITING 48 (MOST ALL MULIPLE TIMES) DIFFERENT COUNTRIES I HAD A REAL OPPORTUNITY TO TALK WITH A LOT OF DIFFERENT FOREIGNERS AND THE ONE COMMON TREAD I FOUND IN 90+% OF THOSE ENCOUNTERS WAS THAT THEY EXCLUSIVELY THOUGHT ME TO BE ***RICH*** AND ***FREE*** AND ALMOST ALL WANTED TO BE JUST LIKE ME AND U.S…….

            THE ONE POINT YOU MAY BE MISSING (IT’S MY GUESSIS) THAT MOST ALL OF THOSE FOREIGNERS YOU REFER TO ARE RIGHT HERE IN THE USA WHINNING ABOUT THE FACT THAT MOST RICH PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAD TO EARN WHAT THEY HAVE, PAY ALL THESE TAXES, ROB PETER TO PAY PAUL, SACRAFICE FOR THEIR FRIENDS, FAMILY AND COMMUNITIES, FEED THE POOR AND MENTALLY LAZY GENERATIONAL WELFARE COMMUNITIES, WATCH THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS BE SENT OFF TO WARS TO POTECT OUR RIGHTS ALONG WITH THOSE WE PROTECT FROM THE LIKES OF THOSE WHO WOULD ***OWN*** THEM!!!

            THE EDUCATIONAL AGENDA TEACHES TO BE MORE LIKE THEM, TO EMULATE THEM TO FOLLOW THEM… ME I’VE BEEN THERE, I’VE TALKED TO MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY (X1000S), I LIVED AMONG THEM FOR YEARS, I’VE COPIED THEM, I LEARNED THEIR TONGUES, I’VE LEARNED THEIR POLITICS, I’VE BEEN TO THEIR CHUCHES, I’VE BEEN TO THEIR HOMES AND I’VE EVEN MET THEIR PARENTS, GRAND PARENTS AND KID BROTHERS AND SISTERS… YES, IN MY YOUTH AND IT’S NAIVETY ALONG WITH MY YOUNG EUROPEAN FRIENDS WE FLIRTED WITH THE COMMUNIST IDEALOGIES AND RELIGIONS OF THE EASTERN WORLD…

            IN SHORT, I SOUGHT AND I FOUND…. WHAT I FOUND WAS MY SELF BACK IN A SCREWED UP COUNTRY TRYING TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT… WHAT I TOOK SO LONG TO REALIZE AND DISCOVER WAS THAT MY COUNTRY, THE USA, AT IT’S ROOTS IS THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT IS REALLY DIFFERENT, SOME PLACE SPECIAL AMONG THE REST… IT’S EXACTLY WHY THEY WANT TO BE HERE WITH U.S. OR DESTROY U.S. BECAUSE THEY CAN’T BE WITH U.S. OR LIKE U.S……

            FROM ONE AMERICAN TO ALL THE REST AND THOSE WHO WOULD COME HERE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE WITHOUT RETURNING TO U.S. AROUND YOU… AMERICA’S NUMBER ONE FREEDOM, LIBERTY AND RIGHT IS TOO LEAVE, TO BE GONE WITH YOUR SELVES!!!

          • Osamao

            The term is Communist Democrat Propagandist. a.k.a. Traitor. Time to stop skirting around the truth.

          • Rick D.

            You are so full of horseshit, I know that I’m wasting my time dealing with morons like you,but I’ll try to educate you anyway. When Barry took office in 2008, the national debt was slightly over $ 6 Trillon. Now, it’s close to $20 T. I realize you liberals are masters of putting a distorted spin on facts, and I realize your math skills may be lacking, but, that, my bed-wetting liberal friend represents a 3 x increase. Take your left-leaning babble somewhere else…..try the Washington Post. LMAO!!!

          • Hgeyer

            The debt was actually 10. 54 trillion when Obama took office…

          • Rick D.

            For the sake of argument, let’s assume you’re 10.5 figure is correct (I’m not saying it is, but to humor you, I will). What this means is that during his “reign”…..after all, Barry does consider himself omnipotent…..the national debt has increased more than it has for any POTUS in the last 50 years!! So, this is somebody you’re proud of? You’re OK with his giving instructions to Lois Lerner and the IRS to target conservative groups, but not liberal ones that supported him? You’re OK with his recent ploy to undermine Israel? You’re OK with his handling of Syria? Need I go on, you mindless liberal?

          • Hgeyer

            Most of that debt was because of Bush’s tax cuts and all the wars Bush started! After reversing Bush’s tax cuts the deficit was MORE than cut in half! A perfect example of why tax cuts for the wealthy, like Trump wants to do AGAIN have been and always will be a complete FAILURE!

          • Rick D.

            OMG!! Here we go again……let’s blame it on Bush!! Gee, you left-wingers are in a class by yourself when it comes to living in denial!! Get your head out of your ass, moron! Trump has already saved 1000’s of jobs-e.g. Carrier, now Sprint. He’s done more BEFORE he’s been inaugurated that OBOZO has done in the 8 years he’s been in office. I notice that you conveniently ignored the vast failures that I listed above. But, I’m sure you’ll rationalize that by blaming on somebody on the right!! I find it interesting that the last 4 letters of your party is spelled “R-A-T-S” while mine is “I-C-A-N”.

          • Hgeyer

            I know you have no problem blaming Obama for the money Bush spent! So 700 jobs that were never going away anyway are a feather in Trumps camp but the MILLIONS of jobs created under Obama are NOTHING? You are seriously deluded… When Bush left we were loosing over 800,000 jobs a month. That too will be Trumps legacy if he has his way with the economy. Stay tuned for rampant unemployment and a skyrocketing deficits!

          • Rick D.

            I’ve got $10,000 I’m prepared to wager on your ridiculous statement! You have the audacity to talk about the millions of jobs that he created. Ask any economist on any reputable news channel and I guarantee you that they would have a different take on your assertion. If what you say has any validity (and it doesn’t because you “take flexibility with the truth”), how do explain our stagnant economic growth? Listen to Stuart Varney….you’ll become better educated.

          • Hgeyer

            Do some real research… I’ll send you the address you can send my 10 grand… loser…. FYI the truth ISN’T flexible!

          • Rick D.

            As Jerry McGuire said: “Show me the money”. This is one bet I’m going to enjoy collecting. Well, well, you finally made a sensible statement……”no flexibility with the truth’. That’s a term I use when I confront my substance abuse clients when I know they’re lying. Glad you liked it. Awaiting address.

          • Hgeyer

            I made that “sensible” statement yesterday… glad you could use it…

          • Hgeyer

            Stuart Varney? LMAO! A paid shill for faux news? Are you REALLY THAT ignorant?

          • Rick D.

            For your information, Stuart Varney is one of the most respected investment analysts in the profession. But, of course, being a liberal, I’m sure you’ve never listened to him or read any of his works. Give the name (of your choosing) of an economist who will explain why the economy has been stagnant and that the reason is something other than due to Obama’s policies. I’m waiting!!

          • Hgeyer

            Searched for “most respected economists” … on page 45 and your boy hasn’t come up yet… I’ll keep looking… maybe someone besides you think he’s respectable but he is a shill for fox so I doubt I’ll find him on this list….

          • Rick D.

            Page 45 in your book, the Communist Manifesto, doesn’t count. You actually expect your audience on this blog to actually believe that you have a book that lists the name of every economist who writes articles, books, or is a commentator on television? LMAO X 10!!!

          • Hgeyer

            It was an internet search… I guess I have to explain everything in simple terms for conservatives…

          • Hgeyer

            Undermine Israel? By asking them to STOP VIOLATING international laws? It’s something they should have been told years ago! But Obama still gave them their billions of US taxpayer dollars even though the refuse to comply with international law! They don’t mind taking our tax dollars OR land that doesn’t belong to them!

          • Rick D.

            Yes, undermine Israel. Your chicken-S*** POTUS deliberately turned his back on Israel as a parting shot to Trump. Even Dems on the far left (Sen Schumer) say as such. As far as International Law is concerned, I assume you’re referring to that worthless organization called the U.N.–which does nothing but pander to the whims of terrorist countries. Look at how small the country of Israel is compared to its enemies. I guess you refrain from using the term “Islamic Terrorists” also, right? And, you’re wrong about the land not belonging to them. Check your facts re the 1948 agreement.

          • Hgeyer

            Oh, I checked the facts about the 1948 agreement and again… YOU ARE WRONG!

          • Rick D.

            Sorry,but since so many other people on this blog have questioned your veracity (or to put it in terms you can understand……they’ve called you a liar), would you be so kind to share the epiphany you’ve discovered concerning the history of Israel and the land grab by the Palestinians?

          • Hgeyer

            All I can say is that the 1948 agreement did Not give the West Bank to Israel. Jordon took possession of it in 1950 and had it till the Arab Israeli war… want any more and you’re going to have to get off your a$$ and find it yourself…. I’m not getting paid to educate you fools….

          • Rick D.

            You conveniently left out the fact that Israel won that war and thus took possession of that land. At a later date, it was given back to the Arabs. Now they want it ALL and to destroy every Jew living in Israel. They do NOT recognize Israel’s right to their country. Those are the facts, my liberal amigo.

          • Hgeyer

            I guess those nasty arabs have the same opinion of the UN as you do…. if the UN is such a “worthless organization” why do you recognize their authority to take land and give it to the Jews?

          • Rick D.

            As far as I’m concerned. the UN is virtually useless. The USA has been funding its operationally at a disproportionate level. Hopefully, that will change when Trump takes over.

          • Hgeyer

            I guess THAT all depends on what Putin wants…..

          • Osamao
          • Shelly Shannon

            Yeah, and i’ll bet all you liberals will be standing in line to take advantage of jobs coming back into this country. You can’t tell us that you don’t want lower taxes, and I know you have to be smart enough to realize that Obama care is going down in flames because nobody can afford it. We are still saddled with Obama who doesn’t give a crap about anything or anyone who cannot advance his so called legacy. He even turned his back on Clinton. He is determined to interfere with a president-elects transition into office. The same Obama who just turned his back on our oldest and dearest alli, and that even pissed off the democrats. You have BLM that would rather kill you than look at you if your white, and they couldn’t care less if you are liberal or not, Obama condones this the same way he condoned the killing of police officers. He has blamed every american for the terrorism in this country and he didn’t give a shit if you were a liberal. So get over all your BS and be an adult just like we all did when Obama was elected into office.

          • Walter Flatt

            HGEYER, BEFORE YOU COMMENT READ ALL THE BELOW AND PROVE ONE STATEMENT IS BS.

            WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NAVTION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

            WHY HAS HILLIARY HAD A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

            WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV.

            WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

            WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

            WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

            WHY DONT THEY ENFORCE THE LAW BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY? PRAY THAT TRUMP WILL DO THIS.

            WHY IS THE MUSLIM MAJOR IN TEXAS LIVING THAT KILLED 14 SOLDIERS AND WOUNDED A LOT MORE?

            WHY ARE THEY RELEASING ALL MUSLIMS IN CUBA TO GO BACK INTO ACTION TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS?

            WHY DONT WE HANG ALL MUSLIMS CAUGHT AND BURY THEM WITH PIG PARTS, LIKE GENERAL PERSHING DID IN THE PHILLIPENS? HE STOPPED A MUSLIM UPRISING BY DOING JUST THAT.

            WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

            WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

            WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

            YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

            BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

            THE LAST WHY, WHY DONT THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS??? COULD THEY NOT BE FOR THE INVASION”

            TRUMP IS NOW THE PRESIDENT, SO, GET ON BOARD AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT.

            SHARE. SHARE, SHARE. I HAVE A LOT MORE FACTS IF ANYONE WANTS THEM.

          • Hgeyer

            Seriously? What the hell do you believe is a valid news source? The first and most blatant lie was that Obama has said ANYWHERE that he is a Muslim! That is a blatant unadulterated LIE! You nor anyone else can produce a video that has not been selectively edited to show that lie! The video that shows that when it is NOT edited says the exact opposite! http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/foxvideo.asp Provide that tape and I will provide the ACTUAL unedited version! Second, there has been NO Muslim ban in the 1952 immigration law! Pure HORSE$HIT again! How many links would you like me to post that say THAT is a load of shit? http://www.snopes.com/islam-banned-u-s-1952/https://www.truthorfiction.com/muslims-were-banned-from-u-s-in-1952/ This is just 2 of them! Fema Camp lie is debunked here by Fox news and Glenn http://www.foxnews.com/story/2009/04/07/debunking-web-myths-about-fema-camps.html … Next easily disproven lie… Government buying up all the ammo… our government purchased more ammo, FOR GOVERNMENT agencies to train and qualify with under BUSH and Regan than they have under OBAMA! More of your bull$hit lies! Obama has been taking away your guns…. Another lie! Obama has only signed TWO gun laws! Both make it easier to carry a concealed weapon! He has SIGNED ZERO anti-gun laws into effect, unlike the republican candidate Romney that BANNED assault weapons in Massachusetts as governor! Hillary has NOT supported taking ANYONES guns unless you are a criminal which is how the law has read for years! EVERYTHING you posted is a lie and can easily be debunked! So, please…. if you have any more “facts” as you call them please FACT CHECK them before you post because our great country doesn’t need you spreading you LIES all over the internet! There is already too much bull$hit being passed around on here!

      • Osamao

        It’s just that simple for a low information voter but………….You’re wrong.

        • Hgeyer

          Anything to back that up (of course not….) or did you just pull that statement out of your a$$?

          • Osamao

            Prove me wrong.

          • Hgeyer

            I realize you are a simpleton so let me explain this to you…. YOU called me a liar when I told no lies… That means the burden of proof is on you! Since you have NOTHING to support your statement that I lied it is PROOF that you are full of $hit! Provide some real evidence or STFU….

          • Osamao

            Liar.

      • Shelly Shannon

        You guys really need to get a grip on reality. It’s now been 6 weeks since the election, and now we are sending your anti-american president back to where ever he says he came from. Grow up and get on with your lives. Geese, your shit is really getting old.

        • jimmy midnight

          Election results actually don’t change verifiable facts like the one Hgeyer cites about the national debt.

          • Osamao

            Here’s a FACT this election didn’t change.
            Obamao’s a DOMESTIC ENEMY and the Communist Democrats are TRAITORS………….FACT.
            You don’t even know why you lost………….FACT.
            Because you’re a socially engineered lab rat tool…………..FACT.

          • jimmy midnight

            Your inability 2 distinguish between facts and name-calling, something in which you’re clearly not alone, is an important reason why our great but troubled nation is so very troubled, We know perfectly well that we lost, and that bourgeois ignorance is a big part of why.

          • Osamao

            You lost because you Communist Democrats and your liberal tyranny sucks. Coloring book?

          • jimmy midnight

            Repub’s, with their culture wars BS, R the real proponents of tyranny. National Dem’s want 2 meet tyranny half-way, which is also problematic. They also suck, but 2 a significantly lesser extent.

          • Osamao

            But you’re a liar so your opinion doesn’t count.

      • jimshaw54

        REALLY?? We are better off than we were eight years ago? I guess, if you believe that around 10 TRILLION more dollars worth of debt is better than having a reasonable size of debt is “much better off”, then you could say that the last eight years have been successful.

      • Walter Flatt

        HGEYER, GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, LISTEN TO ALL OF IT AND IF YOU TELL ME THAT YOU ARE FOR THIS, THEN YOU ARE TRYING TO DESTROY MY COUNTRY.

        • Hgeyer

          MORE lies that have been repeatedly proven by multiple sources to be a huge LIE! ARE LIES THE ONLY THING THAT YOU BELIEVE?

  • Hgeyer

    Conservatives don’t seem to mind that “Santa” gives corporations and the 2% HUGE tax breaks and handouts that make welfare and food stamps look like chump change!

    • 1775concord

      If the government (taking money from individuals and from the company (corporations) that are producing takes less (“tax break”…meaning the govt doesn’t take as much)…the price of goods to the people is less.

      • Hgeyer

        History has shown that when the government takes less the only ones that make more are the 2% and the economy declines and the working class suffers. If you don’t study history you are doomed to repeat our failures! Your plan devised by the 2% has FAILED every time republicans have tried it and you keep falling for this failed plan! Obama got rid of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and it was the first time in thirteen years the buying power of the working class actually improved! Not to mention that after the tax increase on the wealthy the deficit was cut in half! But I’m sure you are so far up in the Koch brothers intestines you won’t agree with me! Enjoy your upcoming depression and sky rocketing deficits with your con man at the helm!

        • gerald Hughes

          You are a bare faced low life lying liberal dem bloodsucker.
          Here it is scum bag, look for work, within a year all of your handouts will be gone, work or starve parasite.

          • Hgeyer

            Feel free to attempt to correct any posts I made that aren’t true… oh wait… everything I said was true…. FYI! I have owned my own construction company for 35 years and NEVER collected one dime in any form of corporate or personal welfare so go piss up a rope douche bag! FYI! Trump said it himself! “The economy always seems to do better with the democrats in charge”!

          • gerald Hughes

            All ofyour posts are lies, purely and simply lies, every one.
            Ah, another liberal dem bloodsucker that makes $500 k a year, pays 125K a year in taxes and is happy to do so.
            Then just to show your empathy with your fellow liberal dem scumbags you get on public forums and whine and begn for handouts and try to rais taxes on some one else to pay for them
            Kill yourself scum bag you are breathing air and taking up space that a human being could be using.

          • Hgeyer

            So you say you have nothing to backup your statement that I’m lying?

          • gerald Hughes

            Don’t need back up low life lying liberal dem bloodsucking parasite, every thing you have posted to this point is bs.

          • Hgeyer

            I’m glad you don’t think you need to backup your statement that I am a liar because you couldn’t if your life depended on it! I can backup everything I posted with actual DATA! When you call someone a liar and can’t back it up you are one of the lowest types of human beings on this planet. I think life is too short to converse with pond scum…. and THAT is the only thing I have posted that I can’t back up with actual data! But I’m pretty sure it’s true….

          God you are stupid.

      • Hgeyer

        When in our last 150 years has the house, senate and president all been controlled by republicans? Fact! 1928 and the following year we had the Great Depression! Fact! In 2005-2007 Bush had a republican house and senate followed by our second Great Depression in 2008! This isn’t rocket science people… just study our history!

        • Robert

          Yes you really should try it sometime.

    • Rob D

      The 2% pay 70 % of the income taxes and create 80% of the jobs you ID10T. The “food stampers” do nothing but leach of of the rest of us. What a moron.

      • Hgeyer

        Since they control 90% of the wealth shouldn’t they pay 90% of the taxes? Your statement about them creating 80% of the jobs is pure bull$hit too…

        • Robert

          And you are full Bull$hit.

    • gerald Hughes

      Hey stupid, the money that corporations make is not your birthright, you want their money start your own business you fing parasite.

      • Hgeyer

        So your corporations are entitled to free use of our taxpayer funded roads, police and fire protection, protection by our military taxpayer funded airports and air traffic controllers, and all the other services or tax dollars provide but they shouldn’t have to help pay for all those things? Stop being a moron, wake up and smell the coffee!

        • gerald Hughes

          Will you stop a-hole, they pay taxes and just like every business in the world, you scum think that you are supposed to get 99% of their profit.
          Christ they pay the highest corporate tax rate in the world, it’s no wonder they are bailing out.
          I operated a business in Chicago for 22 years employing 128 people, 1999 I moved my family and business out of Chicago.
          You fing cretins really think that they will continue to fund your handouts because you want it, ?

  • Gordon Grove

    Typical Republican Horse crap. Criticize social services provided to many in need while Corporate Welfare for the few is much more every year. “FACT”!

    • Robert

      The Federal Government has to pay Companies so they will hire the Dummy’s and Illegals.

      • Gordon Grove

        That’s a pretty stupid come back considering all the information available to prove to the contrary.

        • Robert

          Then prove it.

          • Gordon Grove

            Robert can’t you do research? Probably not since your spelling is terrible. Proper spelling is “liar”. But then the uneducated never could spell or conduct research, they depend on Fox News.

    • Shelly Shannon

      The problem with that…Nobody is saying that people truly in need of help shouldnt have social service benefits. I worked for the State for 6 years. Let me tell you what I encountered. There were families that walked through the doors who were in tears because they had absolutely nothing. Their children were literaly starving. Those people were made to wait for their benefits just like anybody else with the exception of emergency food stamps. Problem was that they were totally capable of working. One gentleman told me “I refuse to go out and work a minimum wage job until i find the 20 hr wage job i want. I have 3 kids. I can sit on the couch and make as much money as that job could bring me”. The dept of social services still approved him for benefits. I watched as people walked through those doors who would have on brand new Nike shoes, real leather jackets, expensive jewelry, hair just done at the salon, their children dressed in brand new designer jeans and looking like they stepped out of a magazine. I constantly seen people pulling wads of cash out of their pockets and handing it to their wives and kids. I seen known drug dealers with pockets full of money applying for full benefits. And guess what? They were all approved for benefits. My own grandmother who only was paid 400 dollars a month from social security at the time she was alive couldn’t even get food stamps because she made 40 cents to much money. Money she worked her whole life for. There is not only abuse of the system, but the system itself is corrupt and their vetting system is so lax that billions if dollars a year is going to people who are completely able but not willing to work. I experienced this day after day and finally quit because there was no way I could watch people who were desperate for help being turned down because they had 2 dollars to much money in their paycheck, but those who were approved had plenty to live on. Don’t think the Dept of social services approves you because you need it. The dept of social services approves more people who don’t. And that is what we are talking about.

      • Gordon Grove

        Sorry but your story line is so Republican and I have heard it time and time again. If there are problems in the system then clean up the system. It is obvious that you did nothing to try and clean up the system, as you stated you just quit. The real problem, as you chose to ignore in my post is the Real Warfare Problem which is Corporate Welfare. Corporate Welfare includes but not limited to Wall Street, Big Banks, Big Business, Extremely Wealthy and Politicians which amount to Bailouts, Protecting Off Short Accounts, Tax Cuts (Little to No Taxes Paid), ridiculous salaries, benefits or million dollar buyouts for CEOs and Politicians than have been the least productive or outright failures.

  • peter

    Obama’s legacy of lies from day one

  • Timothy Toroian

    Like Sowell said in a column, 50% of households in the bottom 20% of income have NO ONE in the household. At what standard should they live? Same as someone making 70 grand a year?? Or housed, clothed, warm and fed?? And not more.

  • Gea

    We need to go back to self-sufficiency, independence and meritocracy of FREE markets which level the playing field for all. Government should only have minimal regulations so that we do not have ANY company or back that is “to big to fail”. Market has to weed out bad actors as that is the only way to have healthy competition which improve life for all people.

    The best way to become independent and self-sufficient is for everybody to take care of their energy and water needs by harvesting solar, wind and geothermal energy and rain water from theri roofs and back yards…I had been doing it since June 2009 and I LOVE it! I have NO utility bills…as sun shines and wind blows and rain falls free of charge.

    The Democratic Party has now become the sad example of out of control spending, total disregard for the truth, and now trying to destroy our nation ASAP. When politics and entitlement keep spewing hatred and deceit and want to outlaw any attempt to put on the brakes they resort to anarchy and destruction thinking it will “improve their lives and eliminate all who stand in their way.

    The entire article is truth that MUST be understood by every voter if this country is to survive as a “bastion of freedom”, but unfortunately that most likely will not happen..
    Government doesn’t “make money”, unless you can say that printing dollars that have no value is making money. Government only TAKES money from those who make it and uses it in whatever manner politicians think is best (mostly best for THEM). Until this knowledge can somehow be passed on to people who are uninformed about how government actually works, in terms they can understand, we will continue to have many people voting for handouts for themselves, and politicians who encourage this behavior because they are more interested in getting into office than doing what is right for the American people.
    Government does NOT “make” money. Government only TAKES money from the people who work to earn the money. That is a mantra that must be taught to every child as he/she grows up if this country is to survive as “the bastion of freedom” that it is touted to be. With the astounding borrowing and spending of money during the past eight years this nation is on a very slippery slope that easily could put most of it’s citizens in poverty for a long time to come.

  • Rick D.

    Fantastic article that too many liberals will refuse to accept as truth. So sad!!

  • Don Fowler

    I am an extreme liberal. I got this way in the USAF (8 years with a Top Secret clearance). I worked part time jobs in the AF so I could purchase a car. I partied hardy. Made rank relatively fast, and loved my lifestyle. Put myself through college on the GI bill, and paid my entire debt off as I drove out of town. I owed the bank $125.00 (one hundred twenty five dollars)/ I always worked one or 2 jobs while in college just so I could maintain my lifestyle. I graduated with (honors) a BA, & a MA in 4.5 years. As a liberal do you think I want all handouts? Heck no. But a strong support system with a safety net is advantageous to all of society. That does not mean give it away. I learned the value of working hard for everything I have, and I have a lot, and I also am very proud to be a LIBERAL. All of our founding 4 fathers and the framers and writers of the US Constitution were all extreme liberal, and I for one am very proud of that. They had to think outside the box to make America happen, and thinking outside the box is progressive for any society. There is liberal and there is stupid. Stupid is on all sides of the political and social spectrum.

  • Walter Flatt

    MASONS AND ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTITIES IT IS PAST TIME TO QUIT PLAY ACTING AND START WORKING TO SAVE THIS COUNTRY, LIKE MASONS DID THE FIRST 60 YEARS. BEFORE MUSLIMS TAKE US OVER AND STOP US HERE.

    I AM A 32 DEGREE MASON, WITH NEARLY 60 YEARS OF SERVICE AND I CAN TAKE A STAND. A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53. I AM ASHAMED OF WHAT JOHNSON’S TAX EXAMPTION CLAUSE DID FOR THIS COUNTRY.

    IF OUR FIRST PRESIDENT, GEORGE WASHINGTON A MASTER OF HIS LODGE TOOK A STAND, SO CAN YOU AND IF YOU DO NOT, YOU ARE TRYING TO DESTROY MY COUNTRY. HE DID NOT HIDE.

    NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTIES, SUCH AS THE MASONIC LODGE, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS MOOSE, ELKS,AND ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES TO COME OUT OF THE CLOSET, FIND OUT ABOUT PEOPLE RUNNING AND ADVISE THEIR PEOPLE THE TRUE STORY SO THAT THEY CAN VOTE FOR THE MOST QUALIFIED.

    TRUMP HAS SAID HE WOULD DO AWAY WITH WHAT THE TAX EXAMPT DEAL THAT JOHNSON PUT ON, KEEPING TAX EXEMPT ENTITIES FROM TALKING POLITICS.

    WE MUST FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY OR LOSE IT, THE MUSLIMS ARE TRYING TO TAKE IT OVER AND THE BIASED MEDIA AND POLITICIANS ARE TOO STUPID TO TELL THE PUBLIC.

    IF WE DO NOT STICK TOGETHER AS A UNIT, THEN WE ARE DONE FOR. THE AMISH PEOPLE VOTED AS A UNIT FOR TRUMP AND GAVE HIM PA., OH., MICH., IOWA, FLA., NEARLY VA., AND HELPED IN IND. THIS SHOW WHAT CHRISTIAN PEOPLE CAN DO WHEN WE STICK TOGETHER.

    GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015. WE CAN CHANGE THE DIRECTION OUR COUNTRY IS HEADING.

    MASONS HAD 14 PRESIDENTS AND 18 VICE PRESIDENTS, THE FIRST 100 YEARS AND WE DESIGNED WASHINGTON, DC. BUT BECAUSE OF A PLAN BY JOHNSON TO TAKE AWAY OUR TAX EXAMPTION WE ARE NOT ACTIVE IN POLITICS.

    TRUMP SAID HE WOULD DO AWAY WITH THE ABOVE LAW.

    I VOTED FOR TRUMP. IF YOU GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, YOU WILL KNOW WHY.

    A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 BANNING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. LET US HOPE AND PRAY TRUMP ENFORCES THIS LAW.

    PRAY FOR PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP EVERY DAY. HE WILL NEED US TO OVERCOME THE EVEL OF THIS WORLD.

    GRAND LODGE IN WASHINGTON, AND GRAND LODGES IN EACH STATE HAD BETTER WAKE UP OR WE WILL LOSE ALL PRIVELAGES IF THERE IS A MUSLIM TAKE OVER AND SO WILL ALL TAX EXAMPTS.

    BELIEVERS IN CHRIST STICK TOGETHER, THIS IS WHAT MILLIONS AMISH PEOPLE DID. 30 LEADERS MEET IN OHIO WITH 3 MILLION AND VOTED THAT ALL WOULD VOTE FOR TRUMP. THERE COULD BE 20 MILLION AMISH IN THIS COUNTRY.

    THIS IS WHAT GAVE HIM OH, PA, MICH, FLA, IOWA AND HELPED IN IND AND NEARLY GAVE HIM VA.

    FOLKS IF YOU DO NOT THINK GOD WAS INVOLVED IN THIS ELECTION, I SUGGEST YOU THINK AGAIN.

    I BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SET UP BY HILLARY, OBAMA, KERRY, SOROS, AND THE BIASED MEDIA AT A TRY FOR A MUSLIM TAKEOVER, IF NOT, WHY ARE THERE A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIMS CAMPS IN THE USA, (5 IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC) AND A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO, TAKE OUR GUNS, BRING IN THOUSANDS OF YOU MUSLIMS. GET READY FOLK. PUT PIG GREASE ON YOUR BULLETS.

    OH, I HAVE KEEP RECORDS OF ALL THINGS THAT HAS HAPPENED THE LAST 8 YEARS AND HAVE FACTS AND FIGURES IF ANY OF YOU PEOPLE DOUBT ME.

    SHARE, SHARE, SHARE THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

  • Marilyn Z

    Very well written, Shawn.

    I have seen this very thing with the few liberals in my family. They are the ones who want the government handouts and are always looking for them and trying to find a reason they could qualify for more.

    We are in scary times and I worry about the muslim/liberal infiltrators that might find their way to Trump’s ear. He is a very smart man, but these people are very devious and there are so many of them.

  • Leonard Granger

    Obama keeps trying to defend his 8 years in office. If it was so great the accomplishments would stand on their own and the American voters would have seen them. The opposite resulted with Trump winning by a landslide victory even with the illegals in CA and other states voting, Truth prevailed and the the liberals now go into their hiding places with Clinton leading her rat pack.of voters.

  • Herb Branch

    Great article with points well made!
