Republicans want stuff [View all]

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 [from the federal government], 27 states (84%) are Republican.Of the 18 states which contribute more than they receive, 14 states (78%) are Democratic.
