Hmmm...not one lib on here even tried to dispute my hypothesis. Vroom came close, so give him credit. Guys, namecalling is not an argument.
Isn't it just plain terrible when someone says: "The Dems did all of this, not to liberate the black man, but to keep him down." ?
My hypothesis is that the welfare state, so precious to libs, is a trick. This was stated by Malcolm X (whom I greatly admire. Ever him excorciate the black leaders who play along with the white man?) Vroom states that I'm condemning the welfare state because of outcomes. True. Treating my fellow citizens as cattle by manipulating them is highly offensive.
Since liberals are allegedly much more intelligient than conservative, isn't it possible that the current outcome of the welfare state -- the illiteracy, the teen pregnancies, a whole host of other maladies, was perpetrated?
The conclusion is one of 3 things: (1)liberalism is unworkable, simply by viewing the outcome or(2)liberals are stupid for not seeing where their policy was taking the country, or (3)liberals did all of this purposefully and knew the outcome.
Since LBJ, Ted Kennedy and so forth are so brilliant, I conclude that they knew precisely what they were doing.
