· Capability, not scenarios
Very nice. You take what is an interesting issue (the boomers--AS A GROUP--aren't Paul supporters and you point out his policies would hurt them, AS A GROUP), and then you proceed to expose your bigotry.Sorry but most ghetto blacks, barrio latinos and trailer trash whites live parasitic lifestyles and are either on Section 8, welfare, food stamps, wic or some other government entitlement program and due to their dependence on government they can't be relied on to vote for someone not corrupt because they must vote for whoever is willing to support them financially from the government treasury.
A person who lives off Social Security is also dependent on the government and will have to vote for the candidate who will give them the most government money even if they are corrupt.
Due to the vast numbers of people dependent on the government in this country the politicians and bankers know they have the American people bent over. Look at the rampant theft that's going on Wall St., Criminal bankers have stolen astronomical amounts of taxpayer money and no politician will dare prosecute them. The have gotten so brazen that Jon Corzine from MF Global just simply declared bankruptcy and walked away with billions of dollars of invester's money simply because he could. He was never arrested and it was barely covered in the media.
Social Security is just a big Ponzi scheme, yes people paid into but they should have known it was a fraud and set aside their own money for retirement. It's not fair for young middle class people to be slaves so they can support millions and millions of selfish baby boomers.
If you'd avoided the labels you'd have had an interesting post. As it is, all you've done is expose yourself as a bigot.
And FWIW: Ron Paul is not anti-gay. Neither am I, my wife, nor my two children. Only bigots are anti-gay.
And I'm a Boomer, and I like a lot of what Ron Paul says. Oh, what? I'm in that group so I can't hold those opinions? You mean...you were labeling EVERYONE who belonged to a group with the characteristics of some in that group?
