RW facebook friend complains about lack of services

They can't get anybody to inspect a boat trailer (apparently the State Police have to come to your home for this), and she can't get anymore unemployment benefits. Yet they consistently toe the party line about other people wanting stuff from the government.

Vote for budget cuts, and this is what happens.

6. Yep. Small government means, well, less government

And not just for people poorer and/or darker than you, though that's who they're hoping it's about.

I'm trying to think of people I personally know who are into this whole Tea Party nonsense who HAVEN'T used some kind of government assistance, and I can't think of any. One only used food stamps. One used food stamps and I think housing assistance (?) too at some point. I remember her thanking God for providing housing assistance and I remember telling her that it wasn't God, it was Big Government that did that. LOL. And the neighbor has used at least food stamps as well. It might be coincidence that all the ones I know have used assistance as I don't know that many of them.

But THEY really need it! They aren't the ones "abusing the system." (/sarcasm) The code language here in Michigan is that it's "people from Detroit" who "abuse the system." You can connect the dots there. And yes, trust me, I call them on that.

I really believe the Tea Party is more about race than anything else, though I'll admit that is colored by the people I know who follow it.

25. There's a website that lists farm program recipients and amount received. That's an eye-opener.

Without fail, the top recipients of federal farm program money are the same people who never miss a chance to spout out their RW "get the government out of agriculture" rhetoric. Yet, they feel a need to sign up and receive the very programs they slam when talking among their peers. And the ones who talk the loudest are at or near the top of the list in terms of the amount of federal program dollars received.

37. In the red rural part of my state there were these huge billboards degrading welfare, etc.

When the ownership of the land and the subsidies they recieved was checked out by disgusted passerby, it turned out they were the real welfare kings and queens. This is the part that gets to me, about the division being preached by demagogues.

We are all paying for things we don't like according to our personal quirks. Like some don't want to pay for the MIC, for police, abortion, to subsidize big farms, pharma, energy and other businesses. We all pay for things we don't like, and pay for things we do.

The reason is, we accept all these things make a whole which is WethePeople. People we never met whose lives are as important and valuable in the big scheme of things. We can argue the points, but to deny they have needs or talents we don't know and don't want to know, is wrong.

And it's really out there to see people who are benefiting from government, which means, the nameless masses of people one doesn't know who paid into the system, deny them the same rights.

significantly reduced because she just recently got a job as a home healthcare aid.........part time. She said she needs those benefits to feed her family.

I know it sounds cruel but hubby and I told her and her NObama idiot bf to suck it up, you voted for the other guy and for the new teabagger Guv'nr, yall talked trash about Obama being a socialist (code for a black man), etc. So suck it up, pull up your bootstraps and try not to trip on your personal pile of hypocritical BS.

Hubby then warned them that it's all about to get much worse best get used to it.

22. I have a RW FB friend

who I know from High School. He's totally the anti-government, pro-gun, anti-union, religious zealot person we see so stereotypically presented here.

Yet, he joined the Navy after high school, learned how to conduct fire suppression in the Navy and after retiring from the Navy (pension), is now working at a Fire Department and will retire soon (mandatory retirement at some reasonably young age). This guy has never worked outside the government in his life, save for possibly a few months' stint at a McDonalds or something in high school. He's got a powerful union, the Fire Fighters' Union, to support his nice salary and overtime pay and a great pension when he retires.

He's the very person he is denouncing!

26. I'm surrounded by them.

Most of my friends are Republicans (I live in the damnedest reddest town in AZ). One complains constantly about the 'takers' and she's on gov't. assistance. Another complains about too many regulations (in general) and makes a living enforcing those same regulations. My boss thinks he's a Libertarian (he doesn't know what it means) but complains about the lack of building code enforcements, lack of environmental protections, etc., etc., etc.

I spend the majority of my life rolling my eyes and banging my head against walls. It's bad for my health, but the husband won't move back to Chicago.

30. No, it hasn't.

When I first lived here, back in '90, it was purple. More and more seniors moved in, young people and families moved out. It just keeps getting older, meaner and more crazy. Just look at our Governor.

There is some hope, however. We have a huge (and growing) Hispanic community that is solid Democratic and they're pissed off. Voting for them is made as difficult as possible, but we're doing what we can to ensure their rights are protected.

The biggest problem is money. The rich in this state are RW and they have nothing better to do than buy elections and shit on the rest of the state. I've stopped donating to our county Dem. party after 2 viable Democratic candidates got next to nothing in support. Now, I donate direct to candidates. Oh, and our Democratic politicians aren't the cream of the crop, either. It's very often a 'hold your nose' voting process. Not always, but often.

60. Fortunately ...

I live in Pima County, where the (elected officials) Democrats are mostly Democrats and the republicans have a nodding aquaintance with sanity ... though Pima County does have a very loud contingent of teapartiers.

But there is hope for Pima County, if not the entire state ... As I mentioned earlier, I attended a social event where there were several "high profile" (non-politician) republicans (read: Business Leaders). A common thread in my conversations was their indicating that the "We (the non-political gop class) have to convince the gop (elected officials, if not the base) to move away from partisanship and move towards during what is best for Pima County."

I can't believe that if they are willing to have this conversation with me ... someone who, clearly and makes no pretense of being in their base, these conversation aren't happening throughout the state.

72. Yes, and it gets tiring

Just now, another one posted about "entitlements" being nothing more than handouts. I said that the same is true for corporate handouts. She told me this was different, because corporations pay taxes.

I said "You haven't been keeping up with the news. Some corporations not only pay zero taxes, they have a negative tax rate, meaning they get more from the gov than they pay.

But if you're going to use that line of argument, then remember that welfare and food stamp recipients also pay taxes. Many have jobs, and all pay sales tax. I'd say most of them pay more taxes than companies like GE do. Anything above $zero is more than GE."

There's no end to it, though. You get tired of arguing. I'm a former RWer myself, and I was turned around. My wife clings to her RW beliefs, but she's losing faith, and didn't vote for Romney. There's hope, I guess, but they really resist logic.

That Sandy Hook conspiracy video has them all in a lather again.

32. I Do Not Get It

I do not understand how people like the person you discussed can oppose government programs and support small government candidates, who claim they will cut government programs, but then those same individuals complain when the government programs they use get cut. Do these people think there are people in the government who go around examining the people who use government programs and that those people will come to them and say, "you need your government program money so we will let you keep your money and benefits; however, that family down the street does not need the government money they are using so we are taking it from them"?

70. Pretty clear case of "Cognitive Dissonance," I'd say. They've swallowed the Faux/Rethug/Teaparty

propaganda for so long, which demononizes "the other" to the extent that it leaves no room for compassion and understanding that THEY could actually be in that situation. When that happens, it just doesn't "fit" and they can't put it all together because they've been conditioned to compartmentalize and demonize others.

Their REAL dilemma is that they're stuck in a moral conundrum - facing the fact that the hatred that has been nurtured and fanned by the propagandists have made them vote against their own interests. Or, in short:

*Their HATRED - of people who have some of the same needs that they do - has come back to bite them.*

Repukes are actually the cause of most of the problems in the U.S. in the first place.

They have a huge issue with projection -- Repukes above anyone want things for free... they are constantly trying to find way to make easy money rather than earning it.

What the government provides is a pittance compared to what they extract from hard workers.

It is heinous the way Repukes project their issues onto the most vulnerable Americans.

62. Actually ...

I have far more respect for this guy ... At least he's sponging off his mommy; rather than, me - as he whines about "those folks."

58. Well maybe you should tell her to look in the mirror and that is the person to blame.

 

Remind her voting for republicans who want to cut spending this is what happens.

65. The ones like that who I know always say they want "small government"...

...because they're cynical about government. What on earth makes them think that what would be cut would NOT be the parts they use?

66. I know a buch of people like this, hypocrites all.

I think they are just too stupid and ignorant to connect the services they get with the taxes they pay.

Here in Minnesota they are the idiots who voted for the Republicans and then whined about the roads turning to shit./

69. Small government is just code for cutting off minorties

God fearing white folk like themselves will be spared while the black and mexicans kicked off.

71. That's EXACTLY it.

Believe it or not, that meme has been going around ever since the Extreme Right Wing lost the election in '64 and gained momentum with "the Reagan Revolution." Right wing think tanks have been at work perfecting the use of it to a fine art all these decades, in order to put it to use by a vehicle like Faux News.

Now its results are finally coming back to haunt some of those who have been buying into it all these years.
