Because that is what the lefties tell them and NOBODY is out there showing them another way.
Gingrich said it best in the primary debates where he wants to teach people how to get a job, how to keep a job, then how to own the job.
Well, doesn't that seem like a little bit of "outreach" that can be done? If it does, then why is it not being done?
See, the whole problem with the GOP as a whole is they think they can just put up a billboard or run a TV ad and somehow by magic people are converted to the cause.
Politicians are not Paul of Tarsus. They can't just speak to a crowd and convert them. Politicians and political parties actually have to do some work to convert people.
Perhaps the entitlement mentality is more entrenched than we think.
It's bone deep. Once you give them something, then they think that their worthless existence is justified and they demand even more. You can't buy these losers off like the Republicans want to do. You have to write them off and concentrate on getting the people to vote for you who want to see the losers kicked in the behind and put to work. Something that Mitt obviously failed to do, and maybe is too late to do anyway.
Even on FR there are people who think they're entitled to some sort of means tested benefit form the rest of us. One loser the other day excoriated me for mentioning that and went on to say how EBT cards were an essential part of the economic recovery process. If he's reading this - have another beer good loser buddy. I'm working so you don't have to get off your lazy a$$ and do anything.
I really don’t think they are educable. Imagine if Romney and the GO-PACS had used their billion bucks to just bus them to the polls and slipped them a bottle and a toke.
Does anyone really think anyone can explain economics to these people ? My vote for the highest bidder is as close as their comprehension of capitalism extends.
