Liberals care for the poor? Anyone visited a Ghetto lately? No because they aren't safe. Liberal policies have destroyed the poor by making it effortless to remain poor. With welfare, food stamps, housing subsidies, etc. those who are poor could have used their time to learn skills, study, develop themselves in other ways, but instead there has been a steady deterioration in their families, their churches, their neighborhoods, schools, and personal behavior in all aspects of their lives. This doesn’t seem to bother liberals because for a small additional fee they can be counted on to vote for them. If this isn’t evil what is?

There are a handful of seriously poor folks who have learned to play the system and make the rounds of the charity organizations to survive. It's not a large %. Anybody who works inner city charity knows who they are. No program will ever lift these folks out of poverty unless they confront the behavior to produce genuine personal change -- like a religious conversion, or like intervention for an alcoholic.

CINCINNATI - There's an odd imbalance that few have noticed in this presidential campaign. In the midst of a continuing economic downturn, one candidate talks regularly about poverty, and the other doesn't. The one who does is the Republican, Mitt Romney.

He's done it for a long time. Go back to Romney's March 30 speech in Appleton, Wis., in which he introduced the charge that President Obama is creating a "government-centered society." "Over 46 million Americans are now living in poverty, more than ever before in our nation's history," Romney said. "In households with single moms, over 39 percent are...
