Dissonants Unite in Politics, Religion & Science Posted January 26, 2020 · Edited January 26, 2020 by Omerta 13 minutes ago, Thanatos said: I do too, in a way. It was so much easier to just be the same as everyone around me, (my family is hardcore GOP and hardline religious). Pretend that everyone else was against us. Honestly, kinda the dude's argument as well, lol. "It's not fair for us." Just as an aside- not just liberals that think we pay way too much into the military. My dad thinks so, and so does my best friend. Both are conservatives in every way. Its not everyone. It liberals vs conservatives. So in reality it is conservatives versus conservatives. Youre just looking to shit on the guy and missing his point because of liberal biases. That is the old Thanatos I miss, he would have seen it, or at least attempted too. The guys argument is much broader. The argument isnt, shit on them too, or I did it so we all can. The idea behind it is that we should not be trying to legislate out poverty by killing incentives. What is the incentive for picking up that extra shift to help your kids out, when you can just let everyone else do it ? He was making her say that their will be no incentives to be had for people like him under Warren, and he is right. And liberals are the master of everyone is against us. they are always bitching about how they have been wronged and want the government to fix it. The GOP does it too, ALMOST as good as liberals. We do pay too much for the military, because the contracts go to people like Haliburton instead of letting the Army have its own R&D department. WE could have just as potent of a military without private citizens. The point was the military is what keeps the wolves outside the house. China and Russian know that combined they couldnt take the smoke. And its because of a military people want to downsize.
