Republicans want stuff

Once again, much like farmers and other GOP voters, the hypocrisy is palatable If I didn’t know any better, I might come to the conclusion that race is a big part of this. Could it be – as shocking as it sounds – that Republican voters are more than happy to accept stuff for themselves, but find it unacceptable when the stuff magnet is a minority?

Red Staters and their allies in Congress and at Fox News are often aggressively, and racist-ly, ignorant about just who in America are the givers and who are the takers:

Of the 32 states which receive more than they contribute , 27 states (84%) are Republican.Of the 18 states which contribute more than they receive, 14 states (78%) are Democratic.

1. Overseas tax shelters, Deregulation, Raiding pension funds, Low-wage work force = 'STUFF!'

If you are a Republican, you and ONLY you are entitled to 'stuff.'

I can't put this on only the wealthiest 1%. Republican voter seem to believe only they are entitled to 'stuff' too, the rest of us be damned. I have to say Christian 'values' voters believe only they are entitled to 'stuff,' too.

Welcome to DU, UCmeNdc!!!

2. Only they want big stuff

Tax subsidies worth billions, as well as countless other tax giveaways subsidized by working Americans. When Romney says his campaign was about big things, he means really big money.
