Facts about poverty in America

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on to them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”.

~  Ronald Wilson Reagan

Einstein once said, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’

It is the disadvantaged who habitually elect Democrats — yet they are still disadvantaged.

Top Ten Poverty Cities
I believe this is one of the greatest American tragedies. What do the top 10 cities with the highest poverty rate all have in common?
Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list)…hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961;
Buffalo, NY (2nd)…hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1954;
Cincinnati, OH (3rd)…hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1984;
Cleveland, OH (4th)…hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1989;
Miami, FL (5th)…has never had a Republican mayor;
St. Louis, MO (6th)…hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1949;
El Paso, TX (7th)…has never had a Republican mayor;
Milwaukee, WI (8th)…hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1908;
Philadelphia, PA (9th)…hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1952;
Newark, NJ (10th)…hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1907

Opinion: The disadvantaged remain disadvantaged because they are looking for a Liberal Democratic Government to give them something, when all they have to do is work for it.

(How can a person be 5th generation & disadvantaged in this country?)

  1. It’s a shame that in America, years of continual neglect of the poor, is the hallmark of the Republican Party. One of the main examples is the travesty of neglect, when hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.
    Through the last eight years, Republicans did nothing toward regulating Insurance preminums, and policy cancellations, which has devestated America with over 46 Million people uninsured ! Now Republicans are scareing people with Socialism. Their leaders continue their uncaring sprit, fighting Obama’s Public Option Healthcare Program. The Democrats proposal would keep Insurance Companies honest, and promote compitition among them, and Medical Providers.
    Europeans scratch their heads, wondering why out of the17 Industiralized World Countries,each with some form of National Health Care, America still languishes in Corporate greed to benefit Insurance Cartels outrageous profits.
    With 50 million people in America on food stamps, Government needs to return to caring for it’s people.
