The Democrats are pushing this meme, as though it’s somehow a bad thing. Well, yup, he said it, and he told the absolute truth! He won’t ever convince the welfare malingerers and those dependent on government that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. He won’t ever persuade a 30 year old college student, one able to afford an expensive private school like Georgetown University, that she should be expected to buy her own birth control pills, and not depend on someone else to do it for her. He will never persuade those people who think that other people somehow owe them a living that they should take care of themselves. He will never convince the occupiers and the fleabaggers that they are responsible for their own lives and own success, and that they need to grow the [insert slang term for fornicate here] up.
And this is why the TEA Party exists, this is why so many working class people will vote Republican. We do our best to take care of ourselves, we do our best to be responsible for ourselves and our families, and we work damned hard to support ourselves and our families; we don’t have the time or the energy or the money to carry the fornicating malingerers on our backs!
The vast majority of conservatives wouldn’t have any problem at all paying taxes to help people less fortunate, if they were truly just unable to support themselves. But most of us get damned pissed off knowing that the welfare system in this country is loaded up not just with people who can’t work, but with people who won’t work.
