I have been sincerely asking acquaintances who happen to be a party to the Republicans, what makes them so devoted to their cause? The only answer they seem able to come up with is how high the inheritance tax will be if that dreaded socialist Obama wins in 2012.
Right here in Payson, I personally have watched several wealthy families, push their children out into a low income, trailer trash environment, so they can qualify for welfare, medical care and food stamps. Whereby, their conservative old money is never at risk. I am not in the least jealous of the rich, throughout their limited lives they have missed so much.
What is most disturbing to me is their angry old men attitude at the Democrats. If they want to take and take from our social programs designed for the truly poor and handicapped, which includes earned unemployment insurance for the forest firefighters when the woods are closed off during the winter months. But they refuse to help us vote in favor of even the bare bones education, health and welfare issues.
