lisaf: I am no democrat nor republican fan as I believe both parties are over all corrupt own systems by the ultra rich to divide the majority of people or distract them so as to make their plans easier to fulfill. I have been called a liberal (among many things) for which I guess I am in many ways. I realize socialism to some degree is always needed in society for fire departments, police, parks, roads, and so on. But also to make a safety net for those moments when life happens, or to help those less fortunate get a higher education that is good socialism in my view. But I don't agree with paying for people who have 3 or more kids when they couldn't even afford 2 kids, and then some don't even take care of the kids to begin with. Nope not in for that. And I am not in for helping drug users go through more than 3 times in a treatment program, after that give them a tent and a fishing pole, let them suffer their issues out, and if, they make it they are stronger in life. If they don't make it and croak, so be it they made their choices to that end. I also don't agree with the ultra rich abusing their wealth and power to buy laws, to buy politicians, and buy the legal system and such that is wrong and unethical and immoral. Greed is bad, and causes so, so much pain and suffering in this world, but alas that is not going to change anytime soon. Point is there needs to be a middle road between the lazy and the ultra rich/greedy while the middle class takes the beating from both ends and neither party seems to want to meet there in the middle. Our government system is so corrupted by greedy people bribing, manipulating, and so forth. And then there is little punishment to the politicians getting caught being immoral and unethical.. Sigh if I think about it to much it becomes frustrating, so mostly I peek into such thought only minimally checking to see that I still care, speak out a little, and move on.
