Loiso... Rubio and Paul both believe that ALL people are better off when they have the opportunity to succeed. They both believe in the responsibility of society to provide a safety net for those in need and they both believe in the moral obligation to help those who cannot help themselves.

She demonstrates with every post just how little she knows about the very country she lives in. She's been fed Marxist tripe and jusdt runs with it becauseit requires no actual thought or personal responsibility.

Responding to a presidential State of the Union speech is often a thankless task. Following the president's act, which oozes prestige and historic significance, almost always makes the next guy seem small and trivial by comparison. As it goes, the designated member of the opposition party is typically holed up in a room somewhere with little more than a camera, some lights and a teleprompter.  The rejoinder he or she offers is almost always instantly forgotten; when it's not, it's usually for the wrong reasons.  Sen. Marco Rubio broke the mold last night.  He delivered a substantive, relatable and...
