Regardless of your party affiliation, we all want the same thing for the United States of America and its citizens: To prosper. We just disagree on what that means and how to get there. To liberals, prosperity means government handouts. A very large portion of the votes they get are directly dependent on promises of free rent, food, phones, cash, medical coverage, and backdoor citizenship and free education for illegals. I guess bribery isn’t against the law if you’re a liberal trying to buy votes.
Republicans on the other hand believe prosperity means giving you the ability to provide for yourself, your family and assistance to those legitimately unable to provide for themselves and/or their family. All you need is one eyeball and two brain cells to see that those who milk the system don’t appreciate or take care of what they have been given without earning it. While those who earned what they have value it. Plus working for what you have instills a feeling of pride, self-worth and accomplishment.
How does that liberal saying go? Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach him how to fish and he eats for life; or give him, his girlfriend, her illegitimate fatherless children, the illegals and the too-lazy-to-work unlimited government handouts and you have a created a Democrat for life. The liberals are in a frantic tizzy because Donald Trump is going to change all that.
