Einstein once said, 'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.'
It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats .... yet they are still POOR.
"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."
And yet this president and the democrats continues to do the same-------------
Awesome with facts .....
Also add to the list of final sayings:
“It is impossible to tax yourself into prosperity.”
“Socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money.”
“Success for Republicans is getting more people off welfare. Success for Democrats is getting more people on welfare.”
“When another citizen takes something from you against your will, it’s called ‘stealing’. When government takes something from you against your will, they call it ‘redistribution’.”
“Liberals believe there isn’t anything that can’t be fixed by more government in everyone’s lives. Conservatives believe almost all problems people have are BECAUSE of more government in everyone’s lives.”
“Ask a liberal for solutions to today’s problems, and they always propose more spending of other people’s money, more intrusion of government into other people’s lives, and more restrictions on other people’s freedoms. Ask a conservative for solutions to today’s problems, and they will say stopping liberals from imposing their ‘solutions’ on everyone else’s lives.”
Obama votes - 325,534 McCain votes - 8,888
Until I saw the part about the population over 250,000 I wouldn’t have placed El Paso on that list. It’s got a huge military presence that is going to be growing over the next few years, but it is on the border, and a lot of the folks that could moved from Juarez to El Paso to get away from the violence.
What do these cities have in common??
Democrat-run El Paso had to work HARD to get on this list, Texas is one of the few places adding jobs and all those illegals working cheap should be a boon, right??
What is the authoritative source for this list? Someone just make it up? I can believe it, but not until someone cites the source.
Obama votes - 325,534 McCain votes - 8,888"
I find these numbers unbelieveable and question their accuracy. More than a few hundred people living in Detroit voted for McCain. Gimme a break! Then again, maybe that town is finally starting to see the light.
These cities have been messed up for a long time, but they keep electing the same folks. That says a lot about the voters, but you cannot argue it hasn’t been a success for the Democrats. The politics of envy and class and race based grievances seem to work in the sense the Democrats keep getting reelected. So long as the government checks keep coming, I don’t see it changing anytime soon either.
Cincinnati is not poor.
I know this because the City just gave $1,000,000.00 to a black scoflaw named Liz Rogers to open up a “greens and beans” soul food place downtown.
The City is rolling in the money.
Source? (I’ve seen this before somewhere).
Detroit doesn’t even have enough police. If you get robbed they tell you that you don’t belong down there anyway.. An old man was car jacked and the cops never showed, he got a ride home from a customer at the gas station..
I would love to see the Grant Application.
A little Marxism is like a mild, temporary case of AIDS.
When you come for my guns, I'll give you the ammunition first.
Over 100 million people were murdered by their own Marxist governments in the twentieth century. Modern Marxists are sure they can top that.
The most valuable slave is the one who hammers his own leg irons.
Marx got his mentally retarded housekeeper pregnant. Lenin died of syphillis. Stalin slept with teen-aged girls. Mao slept with even younger children. Those are mere coincidences.
Skin color is about a sixteenth of an inch deep, which makes it several times deeper than racist thinking.
Just because you can lead a mixed metaphor to water doesn't mean you can make it take off like a rocket.
