Why is the internet so liberal?
#694 to #674 - connormccloud (09/22/2012) [-]
If by liberal you mean the literal definition of open minded then I can tell you why.
The majority of people on the net are younger people, generally they are more open to new ideas. Also since the internet is not censored (yet) it allows for a larger transfer of ideas. Hope I helped.

He was not talking about those types of people. He was referring to people who actively choose to live on welfare, and to take food stamps and assistance money when they make too much to afford it. Not that I really expect all of you young ignorant savages to understand.
#668 - anonymous (09/22/2012) [-]
Devils advocate:

Yes, there are some unfortunate people who deserve help. However, Romney has a point, look at the amount of people using welfare like it's a salary. Women are getting pregnant on purpose for more child support money, people are working jobs very close to the minimum wage so they can get a salary and not pay taxes. Sure, there are plenty of people who deserve the help they get, but a ******** more are just abusing the system and raping the economy in the process.

We can act all cheery and united now, but in 10 years when the debts catch up to the U.S what the **** is going to happen to us?

But he just generalizes. He doesn't specify detail like you have. Being vague is what a lair does. Notice how he includes that whole 47% in the "taking responsibility for their own lives" part. He states that it is the people who don't pay income tax. The last part about personal responsibility is literally aimed ALL of that 47%. He didn't state anything of what you and others have said he was trying to state. It doesn't matter what ones intentions are, its what they say and do. And he didn't state what you have. And don't get me wrong, just read my comment a few spots down.
#662 - reaperssprint (09/22/2012) [-]
Well he's right. the amount of people that collect welfare and such are more likely to have nothing wrong with them than they are to actually have a problem. I don't see him specifying in this, it's just a generalized statement that is true.

Several states have started enforcing drug tests to qualify for welfare and a lot of people starting complaining saying it was a violation of their rights. According to these people it is fair to have to take a drug test to work but isn't fair to have it for receiving money for doing nothing.

Look around at the amount of people who clearly have nothing wrong with them other than being lazy and use food stamps and welfare. Of course elderly people and those who are disabled should be able to receive government aid, but that is the extent of it.

To try and sit here and say that he is false about a large majority of American's not actually earning what they have is complete idiocy. Now is 47% a little bit of an exaggeration, possibly. Either way you can't say he is wrong.

TL;DR Why are you even bothering anyway if you aren't going to read.
User avatar #678 to #662 - Tunaa (09/22/2012) [-]
Yes there are people that just use the welfare system for their own monetary gain, but to generalize is what causes most of the problems we have. Hell, racism is just one big generalization. So for him to generalize IS to to include the people we see above. I believe more strict enforcement of the welfare system is needed but he doesn't say that. He just says what is quoted above. Being vague is one of the more troubling things a President/ Candidate can do. Your argument tries to defend him even when he doesn't give even you ground to stand on.

From what I've gathered in the last months about the election, it seems like Romney is like the devil, and yet people hate on Obama too.. can't you guys ever be pleased?

Thats called politics
User avatar #673 to #666 - ceitoo (09/22/2012) [-]
Yeah, I guess. But I'm Norwegian and I don't really care much about politics, but since 2008 I've always liked Obama, although I don't know much about what he does, I feel like he has done some kind of change, like he said he would. And I haven't even bothered to read about the things Romney stands for, because it seems like he won't do anything good for nobody at all.
User avatar #723 to #673 - Tunaa (09/22/2012) [-]
I'd love to get into this deeper but I would need to find source sites and such but in general, Republicans have stonewalled Obama preventing him from doing great things to help out the poor and middle class. Then they turn around and say Obama has lied about change when it is them who stopped him from it in the first place. Simply put, most Republicans have spent Obama's first term just trying to prevent him from having a second. Republicans have even said Romney wasn't there first pick which just strengthens the idea that they just want a puppet in office that will help them make more money.

Just out of curiosity...why the hell would you not take every tax break you could find? What is that if not efficient? I can't blame the rich (and the others who do it as well, it's not just multimillionaires) for using the tax code as it was written. If you want to blame someone for this, blame the government for first writing this mess we call a tax code, and then not making the necessary modifications when the loopholes became apparent. Just as a comparison, look at Blizzard. They put out Starcraft with the unit balance they thought most appropriate, but as soon as they find a loophole or technique someone is using to gain an 'unfair' advantage, they patch it. But it's not the player's fault that option is there; they're playing within the rules. Romney (and Buffett, who apparently pays a lower percentage than his secretary, although everyone still loves him) is playing within the rules of the US tax code, and it's up to the government to close those loopholes if they want everyone to pay their 'fair share.' Or am I missing something here?

...please forgive my rant...
User avatar #731 to #641 - Loon (09/22/2012) [-]
But, if you are going to abuse the system, you shouldn't flame on other who do the same. Just responding to what you said, I don't actually know if the facts about Mitt Romney's tax evasion is true, but if it is, it makes him a damn hypocrite - and noone likes hypocrites!
User avatar #1084 to #731 - Eventually (09/22/2012) [-]
True...if he's been evading the IRS he's a douchebag who should never be president, but I'll believe it when I see it I guess
#644 to #641 - anonymous (09/22/2012) [-]
I can blame both, one for making such a ****** system and the other for taking advantage of during a time when we need as much as help as we can get.
User avatar #664 to #644 - Eventually (09/22/2012) [-]
I mean I can see that, but at that point we might as well just set up a 'help pay out debt' charity...that way everyone can pay what extra they want, without pressuring people to give up legal deductions. Middle class parents claim children as dependents (which get them deductions), but nobody has a problem with that...

1 - I doubt you are a soldier, if you were, then chances are you would have a better plan than to start cursing out OP.
2 - You may pay state income tax, but I don't think you pay federal income tax.
#680 to #631 - palindromia (09/22/2012) [-]
Yes, military members pay federal income tax unless deployed to a war-zone. In fact, there are certain states that do not require income tax from military members.
