There is no right to "decent food, shelter,education and medical care", you have to earn that. No one should give it to you. But, we all have a right to live, even the unborn. I believe abortion is murder, but I also do NOT want the state to tell women what to do with their bodies. You get what you pay for. If the state pays for poverty, we will get more of it. simple fact, simple truth. You must work to get out of poverty, you must show discipline and commitment. Otherwise you will starve, or live off of the state. As will your children.

He said--you mean if I did get a job, I would be paying for other people's SSI? I said, yes. He said--well, they why would I want to work. No explaining about self-respect or fulfillment or anything is effective...
Post-election season is a time for healing, for putting aside the rancor of a long campaign and rediscovering what unites us. It has not been that way this year.

Instead, the gloating has been extravagant. Worse, liberals have gorged themselves on the same junk food they enjoyed during the campaign and cannot seem to resist under any circumstances -- slandering their opponents....
