It's obvious that they fail to heed the words of their own "Heroes" even when those words have PROVEN TO BE TRUE. They demand we continue to grow the Socialist programs/agendas that have proven to have failed numerous times in the past. People like Gpruitt54 will tell you in in one breath how great and intelligent a man Lincoln was and in the next that what I have quoted below is the rantings of a right wing nut job. Which bring us back full circle to the quote above.

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."
... Abraham Lincoln

Can anyone tell me one thing in that quote that Barry agrees with or has not tried to undermine?
Nice set of talking points. Thankfully we don't live in the back wood jungle you seemingly prefer. We, thankfully live in a civilized country. However, judging by the comments you are making, the only place you seem to fit in would be 1930's America or for a even better fit, perhaps 1930s Germany.

So, start up your hot tub or bath tub machine and get back to the 30s quick, before you are stuck here in the 21st century.
