FACEBOOK Message I received from liberal tonight...
Via Facebook

Posted on 11/18/2011 8:39:52 PM PST by Hildy

I wanted to share a FACEBOOK private Message I received tonight from an old friend (actually, my first boyfriend) who now lives in Massachussetts. Anyone who is my FACEBOOK friend knows my politics, hence..this..

Hi Hildy, I write to you privately so as not to air our differences in public.

Do you still think much of Herman Caine, [sic] who knows nothing of foreign affairs, and admits it. Is this who should make decisions that will effect the entire world? Do you really not believe that it is the 1% are the ones who the republicans cater to? Do you really believe that they care about "Joe six pack", or just lure him in to believe that he too can have some of that American pie "? I live in a million dollar home and have considerable savings, but still have the heart to care about those less fortunate.I truly believe that the republicans are about keeping the tax cuts for the extremely wealthy and let the poor working schmuck pay all the rest. I find this despicable, and don't mind paying my fair share of tax's, as long as the supper wealthy pay their share. What's your take on this?

Honestly? How incredibly stereotypical and outrageous what you are saying is. I am a Republican..are you saying I don't care about people, that I don't have a heart? Listen to me...I don't believe giving people just enough to get by is compassionate. In fact, I think it's cruel. You truly believe that Republicans only care about rich people? I've got news for you buddy, the majority of Republicans are working class. The majority of people who are wealthy wouldn't mind paying more taxes, if it wasn't WASTED by our government..and this is what it's all about. Hey, you wanna more taxes...you can...just write a check nobody's stopping you.

The government screws up everything it touches...and you want to give them more? Really? Who do you think pays the majority of taxes in this Country? Who supplies the jobs? I want the government out of my life, not in it more. How can you say that paying more taxes will help anything? Maybe it makes you feel better about yourself to think this...but it's intellectually lazy and just plain out insulting to me and all the people I work with every day to try and make this Country and better place for EVERYBODY. How dare you imply that I and other Republicans like me don't care about the less fortunate. The government only keep the less fortunate down. How's that welfare worked out? Has any government program that was set up to "help" the less fortunate helped?" It's nice to say that from your million dollar home. Thanks for giving me that little insight. FYI: Go look at who that 1% gives their political donations to. Maybe then you'll really see what's going on here. By the way, the only friends we Jews have these days are in the Republican party. And your comments about Cain? A tad racist, don't ya think?

The above was my reply. I am so pissed off...Ann Coulter is right, liberalism is a mental illness.

"The supper wealthy"?

Is that a new way to say "eat the rich"?

Your friend is truly ignorant. For that, he can be forgiven. But for him to continue to vote his ignorance, he should be damned!

If I shouldn’t vote for Herman because he can’t answer a gotcha vague question like “so what about Libya”, why should I vote for someone who thinks Hawaii is Asia, there are 57 states, and Austrian is a language?

Sheesh.

And apparently this guy does not know that “the wealthy” pay most of the taxes in the USA, and 47% or so pay none.

you go girl~!

Ask him how he can love a government welfare program that spends $73,000 (a good full-time salary) to hand out $27,000 in benefits?

Thats the equivalent of one full-time government employee for each family on welfare

I had the exact same conversation with an old friend today, so don’t be pissed off - just be thankful that you can see through all the crap and have the intelligence to understand that conservatives are about compassion and liberalism is about keeping people under the thumb of big government.

$1 million doesn’t buy that much in Massachusetts. He thinks he’s somebody, when he’s really not. He certainly has soaked up the New England Kool-Aid.

“I find this despicable, and don’t mind paying my fair share of tax’s, as long as the supper wealthy pay their share.”

Just reading this sentence makes me wonder how he made it into a million dollar home. His grammar sucks, his spelling is atrocious, and his reasoning is without logic. Must be a good scam artist.

Tell him to shut up and just write out a big check to the US Treasury. Anyone who lives in a million dollar house is “supper” wealthy to me. When he writes out the check, he shouldn’t make a big production number out of it. Just do it and let it go. That will give him a lot of warm fuzzies and he won’t have problems sleeping at night.

Please pass on to your IDIOT friend.

( I live in a million dollar home and have considerable savings, but still have the heart to care about those less fortunate)

Well I live in a $100,000 house, not paid for, have almost zilch in savings but still donate to the food bank at my church, drive miles to attend funerals and stand flag lines for fallen soldiers, shovel snow for nearest 3 nighbors who are more elderly then I am and have medical issues. And volunteer time for various activities for children at my church. If it wasn’t for the liberal/socialist/democrat policies over the past 35 plus years that have destroyed this nations savings, job outlook and ability to prosper maybe we would not need to donate to the food banks as much!

It’s a great example of just how out of touch Massachusetts liberals are. I live outside of Columbus now. That house would max out at $150,000 in a very nice suburb here.

I think its been shown that Obama doesn’t know much of anything about foreign policy either.

Most of the top 1% are probably Democrats. Heck, Warren Buffer, Bill Gates, Peter Lewis and George Soros are all leftists.

You raise the taxes on the rich. And the rich decide they need to charge more money for their products or services.

Any small business that gets its taxes raise will automatically increase what they charge.

Like a lot of liberals, especially those in my family, I found your friend’s tone to be extremely condescending-one meant to say, “I’m better than you” but stated in a nice way. I’ve met people like him before, they love to look down on the masses from their elitist towers. I have little if any respect for your friend.

Sorry for the anger in my post. I do in fact have a very hard time with people like your friend regardless of either party they belong to. And yeah, I’ve found them on both sides of the political divide.

You know I’m almost sorry because I doubt he’ll read your post with an open mind. Sounds like he is safely housed where he wants to be.

I can certainly understand why you are upset. The moral superiority on display is breath taking. I think it’s narcissism. These people have to consider themselves superior one way or another and so they create situations to imagine themselves as superior. I think this lies behind true racism as well.
Lately I have been thinking about this very issue - the left’s superior self-image. They seem to believe that giving poor people a welfare check should entirely sustain the poor - the left does not seem to acknowledge or even know that the ‘little people’ also need to have purpose, to feel like their lives matter and that they contribute something to society. How is this not obvious? Your leftist friend would not consider meals without a job, purpose in life, or contribution sufficient to sustain THEM but they really think that the poor really just need ‘free stuff’ without any reason to get up in the morning. Like dogs or cats - the left seems to think we should just ‘leave food out for them’ and tell ourselves we are caring people for doing so. They ignore the rage of the slums and think it’s our fault - not the natural result of treating people like dogs or cats. Oh I know there are plenty of poor who have tried to adjust to the life offered by the left - they aren’t happy or healthy.
I guess the rich (among the left) really are ‘different’, aren’t they?

At least Cain is aware of that and openly admits it--which gives him a chance of selecting advisors who do know what is going on and who will get it right. That stands in contrast to those who have 'a plan' and will make a further mess of things.

At least he knows he doesn't know, and that is a start.
