And the Dems want to escalate government BIG TIME!
But... I thought the Obama motto was "Hope & Change"!
Or was it "Dispair & Tribulation"?
Yes, it is spelled S-O-C-I-A-L-I-S-M........
YesWeCan (until we run out of other peoples money)
The "Change" part is from capitalism to socialism.
The "Hope" part is more interesting. You see, if your life is going well, you dont need or have hope. You just enjoy your life. If the government screws up your life, then you get to have "hope" that one day things will get better. If you push everybody down, then the only way they can stand up is with hope.
So Obama is giving the people everything they wanted "Hope & Change"
There is plenty of Hope, but as most Americans are learning Hope doesn't get you much.
Here is a hint for you numbnuts... Military spending is part of government. Just a thought.... We have a big time permanent apparatus of National Security that did NOT exist before post wwii period.
What happens when the Red bar goes above 50%? 60%?
The government produces NOTHING. They are paid/supported by the actions of the Blue graph.
Let's not forget.... Government pensions and health care benefits are guaranteed and paid for by the Blues... even if the Blues have no such benefits of their own.
Without radical change, America is doomed to be like the former Soviet Union before its collapse. And Obama's policies are ACCELERATING our demise! How could we vote for such a thing??
Here is hope.
scientific research has a hard time gaining support in a country that has a conservative base that wants to go backward. there are people in this country that have a deep mistrust of science and want to go back to teaching that the earth was created 6000 years ago by some unseen greyhaired old deity in the sky. in texas this school year some schools must teach the bible by law:

what chance does scientific advancement have when schools are required to teach bible and the religious institutions teach that:
"if conclusions contradict the word of God, the conclusions are wrong no matter how many scientific facts may appear to back them."biology textbook printed by conservative Christian publisher Bob Jones University Press
Yes, but hard work doesn't get you anywhere either. We are now in the land of the HAVES and HAVE-NOTS. This is socialism. It's only going to get worse....MUCH WORSE.
