People can talk all they want about what the republicans may or may not have done wrong. The fact is they don’t offer free goodies to those who want to sit back and benefit from doing nothing, on the backs of the working people of this country. Today we have the democrat party which is the party of freeloaders and unfortunately there are more freeloaders now than people who have self respect.

Be careful about how you talk about freeloaders. The reality is that North Dakota is one of the worst offenders in getting handouts from the Federal Government. For every $1.00 that ND sends to the Federal Government, they get $1.74 in return. In fact most of the “taker states” are the “Red States”
as you can see from this website:
The farm subsidy is a prime example. You may be interested in the following website from the USDA You can drill down and not only get the amounts given to farmers but also their names.

GEM – thanks for the posting. It was interesting as some of the biggest talkers around where I live who complain about government programs get a great deal of farm subsidies. The ones who say “I never took a one red cent from the government!”. Wow.
The Republicans are seeing the end results of Rove’s idea of melding the evangelical Christian vote with the fiscal conservatives and the social issue (abortion) voters. There are just too many radicals in the mix and they have taken over the policy of the Republican party. The Republicans think they are just misunderstood, when in fact, they are understood only too well by voter like women, minorities and the poor. It’s not a messaging problem; it’s an issues problem. They can not support their own platform, but the radials will not let party moderates change these issues without a long and drawn out fight. The GOP is in a mess; factions are popping up so that there is no united front. It took Democrats 30 years in the wilderness to find their way out. I’m betting that the GOP will be out there for awhile as well. It couln’t happen to a more deserving bunch!
