Alexander Hamilton, founding father, first Secretary of the Treasury and
leader of the constitutional convention!
Hamilton pushed for the current viewpoint of the General Welfare Clause, in Article I, Section 8, which has become the basis on which programs like food stamps are constitutional.I'm not saying that I am 100% against food stamps, but wanted to point that out. My personal favorite bill would probably be Jackson or Franklin. Jackson worked hard to rid the nation of debt, while Franklin was a genius.
"Obama's policies have put more people on welfare than any president before him,
so this placement is most appropriate. Unlike the Nobel Peace Prize, for which he
did nothing, this is an "honor" he richly deserves."
Name one policy that did that. I guess the crappy economy he inherited had nothing to do with the rise in welfare recipients. And you can see that in G's graph as you look at the yearly increase during the Bush years 2001-2008, in September 2008 the banks collapsed. Oh, to be feeble-minded.
Let me know when you find one of those "policies" G.
Great video. It pretty much speaks for itself. Grant love the picture on the stamp it's right on. Get enough people to lean on the Government and the dems will be in power for a long long time. In another thread someone posted pics of criminals wearing Obama T-shirts. Hilarious because those are the types of people the dems go after. If you polled all the people in prison you would probably have 80% voting democrat and that's probably no exaggeration. When you have a party who wants to make sure that people don't have to show their ID to vote, you have to ask yourself why would that be? Well now we know.
Wake77, you have been the one to show your true colors in a few threads’ Just because my views don’t align with yours you don't have to go there with the name calling. I forgot that you were a person I should ignore for that very reason. Thanks for reminding me.

Okay, no names, just give me a policy. Be a die hard conservative, anti-Obama, whatever, just give me a policy.
Grant - seriously. I know math is tough for you, but I see a 100% increase under Bush (if you look at the charts) and a 39% increase under Obama. Also check the trend under Clinton and what got handed to Bush, vs. what got handed to your buddy O. You're smarter than that (at least I have faith that you are).
Maybe its the anti private sector, anti rich people, government is going to save us, overtone that has people not hiring. Just maybe.
Again, more rhetoric, no facts. The wealthy have gotten wealthier during Obama's presidency so how is that "anti rich people"? There continues to be an increase in private sector jobs so how is that "anti private sector"? Government jobs have decreased under Obama. So please explain.
Oh no. If you are going to claim Clinton then you have to take Obama. Clinton was handed a economy from Bush 1. He just rode it out.
On your policies, I have been giving you plenty but obviously you can not get it. It is never going to be one policy. It is a work in progress, a little at a time. If you can not see the wealth of the country leaving then I can not help you. On one side, they don't care where they get the money from as long as they get it. On the other, they are committed to spreading the wealth. Spreading the wealth does not work. Spreading opportunity does, taking the spoils of opportunity does not.
An increase in private sector jobs? 5.3MM people have left the labor force(IE not in unemployment figures). So while your graphs may show a drop in unemployment #s, it is really smoke and mirrors. Nonfarm payroll growth has slowed as well.
" If you can not see the wealth of the country leaving then I can not help you."
Yah, I get it, we got a big trade deficit, yet, we are the Richest Country in the World! We have had a trade deficit probably since we stopped being a world supplier oil, yet, we are the Strongest country in the World! We have a lot of people on welfare(do you think that money is going into their saving account?)all of that money goes back into the economy, again making US the Richest country in the world! Our government has been redistributing wealth for decades, yet we have the most Billionaires in the world! We have had a minimum wage forever(this surely has to be bad for the economic system??right?) yet, We have the strongest economy in the World! Our country has been in debt since the First World War, yet, we are Richest Country in the Nation------> We must be doing something right!
The biggest problem today is jobs, the jobs are out there, but they require technical skills and education and that's what we lack, so we will Hire foreigners to fill these vacancies, Welcome to America, the greatest country in the World! come help us grow!
Plus the unemployment numbers do not show the number of out of work sales people who are not receiving unemployment benefits. Realtors and other commission based sales persons who did great when the economy was booming are the ones who are really struggling to make ends meet. And they don't generally receive unemployment when they are "let go."
