It seems the Ds are on one side of... well, "things" and the Rs are on the opposite. The Rs are far more open-minded than the Ds but sometimes Rs are pretty closed minded also. It seems that both parties do not understand the problems of lower-income people. The Ds just ant to throw $$ at those people and then forget them (until election day). The Rs just seem to want to forget them, w/o throwing $$ at them first... Neither option, obviously, is productive.

We need to get over this notion that some people, by having wealth and prestige and etc... are better than those who do not have those things. Those who do not have them are NOT always "lazy and irresponsible." It is more complicated than that and I am frankly getting sick and tired of the rich people judging the poor, writing them off as lazy, stupid, etc... Writng people off gets you off the hook as to doing anything to help them, really help them (meaning: not just throwing $$ at them, some govt program... ) But guess what? In the eyes of God, you are NOT relieved of your responsibility toward your fellow man. People need to get involved  and make the world better. Of course, the USA has aborted about 55 million human beings, at least one of which (I am sure) could have come up with the best idea how to solve the poverty problem...

abortion, btw, is the primary issue to indicate just how sick we are. They are the poorest of the poor (the unborn). They have absolutely nothing... which is why they are "hated by all" as Jesus said... (yes, He was speaking primarily of "religious" persecution, but just the same...

I actually thought Obama had a good idea when he talked about de-segregating the poor, meaning helping them to live in wealthier neighborhoods. No communistic, thug tactics should be used to achieve that goal, but you have to wonder: Why do the rich always live in one part of town and the poor in another?

this is segregation

The Ds go to one extreme (huge govt, massive, uncontrolled spending) and the Rs go to another extreme ("no such thing as a person with disabilities" [so they seem to think])

A lot of Rs look down their noses at the poor / disabled, and NEVER offer them a job, not if they can offer the job to someone who is "successful".. Gee, that's good, give a job to someone who maybe does not even need it, and ignore the one who needs it the most... then get ticked off if that person, in desperation, goes to the govt for help...
 
When I see a lot of Rs offering jobs to the homeless (who do not have a recent felony on their record... I realize that can be scary...) I will say they have reached the point where they can speak on this topic w/o obvious hypocrisy
