- the equal rights and great opportunities you are talking about are just a dream. People are born divided into classes, divided between private schools and public schools, ivy league and community college etc etc. Only in a small percentage of the cases it is just hard work. The truth is that the opportunities are not equal as you say, and some people simply cannot because their condition doesn't allow them to reach for the "big goals".Welfare is for the less fortunate not for the lazy as you think.Apr 26, 2012
- Just look up articles about discrimination. You'd probably be willing to admit that people who are tall or attractive are unfairly considered for a job above others but you deny it here. I have 4 welding certificates and have probably applied for about 100 positions and couldn't get anything. Do I blame it on my race? No but I know that some people have unfair advantages like knowing the right people and yes sometimes even race. But go ahead, deny away.Apr 26, 2012
- Another example of what George Orwell called "newspeak."
This is NOT what it means to be a representative. Each member of Congress is not supposed to represent all the nation anyway.Apr 26, 2012
- Let's keep it simple. If Congress really represented America we'd have decent universal health care for all, student loans would not be out of control, and we'd probably be much further along on alternative fuel options.Apr 26, 2012
- Finally some good news. Imagine if congress were more representative.Apr 26, 2012
- If we could just convince everyone to vote, our government would look and act a lot better.Apr 28, 2012
