    It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats
    yet they are still
    POOR!


    "You cannot help the poor
    by destroying the rich.

    You cannot strengthen the weak
    by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity

    by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up
    by pulling the wage payer down.

    You cannot further the brotherhood of man
    by inciting class hatred.
    You cannot build character and courage
    by taking away people's initiative and independence.

    You cannot help people permanently
    by doing for them,
    what they could and
    should do for themselves."

    Abraham Lincoln

    They might be poor, but that's because they live within their means and don't spend what they don't have.......they may not have much, but at least it's all theirs.

    I don't often agree with you Mr. Lucifer but nicely put. It's a shame atleast the republicans just lie. The democrats trick you which is far worse. You could make this same comparison with the union.
