There are some people in this country who need food stamps. There are people who need help. We understand that. We don't want to make ever a situation where there is not a need for some of those programs. But when you start expanding government programs that enslave people rather than empower them to come off of those programs with the job and dignity of work, then that's the opposite effect of what those programs were intended to do. They were supposed to be a ladder out of a hole. Not a top on the hole to keep you there.We're talking about food stamps here you asshole! You know...what families with children need so they don't go hungry.
And surely, no one is going to miss that "slave" reference given the fact that the ONLY people to have experienced that particular condition in this country are African Americans. We also remember that you are the same guy who compared welfare recipients to roaches. How's that christian thing workin out for ya Mike?
Nuff said. This guy gets my blood boiling. Can you tell?
But seriously, this guy has a prime-time gig at the Republican National Convention. If anyone wants to bet on who is most likely to produce a Pat Buchanan moment this year, its Mike Huckabee. So far he's on record igniting the Chick-Fil-A battle, defending Todd Akin's comments, and now calling welfare/food stamp recipients enslaved cockroaches.
No one in the party is doing such a good job of showing just how hateful and divisive the Republicans are these days.
