Is any of this surprising?

The loudest screams of socialism are always coming from the right-wing in red states.

??????????

Another liberal ruse of semantics.

The presumption (which is false) is that there are more PEOPLE ON WELFARE in the states recieving more federal revenues. Nothing could be farther from the truth. STATES recieve federal money for a variety of things, which are percieved to be in the best interest of the nation. Military bases, interstate highways, dams, bridges, agricultural support ect...................................... NONE OF WHICH HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH INDIVIDUALS ON WELFARE AND GOVERNMENT SUPPORT.


DEMOCRAT CONSTITUENTS CONSTITUTE THE MAJORITY OF CITIZENS ON WELFARE. NICE TRY- however, the majority of CITIZENS recieving federal support are DEMOCRATS.

Prepare for the inevitable wave of excuses from the right-wing about how all the funding is going to minorities in big cities on welfare and it isn't the fault of their ideology.

Conservatism is a complete failure. It has a track record of zero.

Yeah libs...since all of us Conservatives are either rich, greedy, old white men, or we are living in a trailer park, fit with one tooth in our mouths, drinking hayseed all day long, riding around in busted up pick up trucks, firing our guns at any and every thing, taking a shining to our dogs, and wearing dirty wife beaters all day while we thump our Bibles and kiss snakes, and basically bringing this country to ruin, then we don't need welfare.

Let's get rid of it! Show us Conservatives just how much you hate us, get rid of welfare since, according to you, we are the ones using it all up.

The truth is minorities (who tend to vote Democrat) are more likely to be on welfare than whites. Sorry if the truth is racist.

Yep, we are willing to sacrifice. I'll give up my welfare benefits right now. A sacrifice for the common good.
