The problem is that our way requires work and is not guaranteed. Why would they vote for us when they can get what they want (or so they think)for nothing?
That's another aspect but that is not what I am talking about. They do NOT have to work any harder. Vote Republican, let us cut taxes and reduce regulations and obstacles, businesses will grow and hire and free markets will do their thing. They have to do nothing but cast a vote. They lose some worthless programs and regulations which many of them don't even benefit from. I submit that our approach will put more money in their pockets, get them employed and help them stay employed. We are offering them money and material security.
To your point, yes if they work harder they can make more money but that's their choice.
I believe a huge majority of those who voted for obama have jobs. They’re going to be surprised when they find out that taxing the “wealthy” isn’t go to pay for the “stuff” for the people who don’t work and they’ll have to make up the difference.
I spoke with a small pizza shop owner. He said from now on out when I buy groceries, it’s for the store. All my mileage is for delivering pizzas. I’ll owe zero taxes at the end of the year. I have a feeling a lot of small operators are going to be doing that.
