    It's real easy to be a repub, you just have to ignore reality and dream of how you would like things to be even if impossible. The rest of your post is fucking stupid, as usual.

We do realize that. We also realize that we're all in this together and when too many of us aren't successful, it drags everyone down. Republicans behave as though everyone is an island unto themselves and we're disconnected from each other. It's uncivilized and unenlightened.
    I don't believe that bullshit for an instant. Yes, typically successful people are usually fairly intelligent which is why.

    It's so strange, that used to be the democrats right up untill Reagan. I can't see that party sheet has anything to do with this.

    Not the same rewards, the same opportunity.

    That's interesting. I wonder why the Democrats have lost something over a thousand elected positions since 2009? Could it be because people are moving away from Democrats?

    I want people to have a drive to succeed. If you are making minimum wage, then you need to reevaluate your skill set. If you aren't getting forty hours, you need to be working two jobs. The Democrats perception is that a job should supply all the needs regardless of effort put forth.

    Democrats are the reason that people fail. There is no drive to succeed in life if everyone is getting a trophy.
    Anyone who has ever accomplished anything has stood on the shoulders of someone else. There would have been no Steve Jobs without a Nicola Tesla, who, BTW was grateful for the opportunity given him as an immigrant to the US.

    Teach a man to fish and it does him no good unless he has access to fish bearing water, and the tools to fish with.

    The Democrats do not want the individual to ever be able to fish for himself or herself. He might be too successful, in which case they will take those additional fish to give to someone that didn't bother to fish. As long as you keep making excuses for failure, you will continue to see more of it.
