What exactly is an "entitlement liberal voter"?

There's a whole lot of facts stated in this thread that accurately portray the lifestyle here. I would like to add my view without taking away what has already been posted. The atmosphere here is not conducive to one aversion. The majority of people are the consumerist, live for the moment types. Then you still have space for the base people. Think of someone who knows a little about a lot versus knowing a lot about a little. Look at two cases right now: the Occupy movement and the NHL Panthers. No there isn't a massive throng going or participating, but there is a hardcore group for each. A good amount do show at first or when it becomes the "hot" thing, but it dies down to a simmer to where you only have the hardcore base left. Those majority that did come out just move on with their lives or look for the next "hot" thing. We're an event town, but we do have small bases whether it be activist types, NHL fans, chinchilla breeders etc etc etc.

It is a broad phrase with little hard meaning. The generalized meaning is; those people who vote based upon how much entitlement they will receive from the elected official.

Basically, there is a class of voters who vote for who ever promises them entitlements, i.e WIC, EBT, Welfare, ect. Basically anything that will allow them to take the least amount of financial responsibility for their actions on an individual level.

This does not apply to just "liberals", but all types of voters as the entitlement mentality is a class of a voter in itself. Political parties in the US are not rigid in their stances (despite what they would like everyone to think), they have a wide range of view points on each side, many of which even cross into each others stereotypical view points.

I do not think education, or lack of, plays a significant role in the avocation of a command style economy.

I said "decent" (FAU, Nova, FIU are awful--check out USNews), and "public" (UM is not awful, it's ok I guess, but it's private)

Not all good schools are private (HYPS, etc.). There are some decent public universities: UMichigan, Cal-Berkeley, UVA, UNC-Chapel Hill, etc.

Ok I'll vote for whoever vows to protect social security. I am ENTITLED to social security since I pay a huge chunk of every one of my paychecks into it. If that makes me an "entitlement voter" then so be it.

I'm guessing the poster who used this term is probably all for getting rid of social security which would be an economic disaster and not the right thing to do.
