    Excellent post.

    R's held congress from 1995 till 2007.

    Their budgetary policy was in effect from 1996 till 2007.

    Not exactly ten ears, but leftists and math ne'er were a god match.

    Now ... would you really like to discuss the verge job growth per year between 1996-2007 and the job growth between 2008 and now?

    I didn't think so.

    Next tie, study before being taken to school.

    You are not a liberal, but I am.

    In fact ... again ... you are using words which you do not comprehend t meaning of.

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: LWW</div><div class="ubbcode-body"><div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: DiabloViejo</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Do you deny that it's a quote from Benjamin Franklin? </div></div>

    Not at all.

    In fact it's from a letter to Robert Morris dated 25 December, 1783.

    I know that because I understand that political hacks will truncate a quote and present it in a manner that twists the original meaning.

    That is a tactic I abhor, but oddly ou love.

    BF most assuredly was not talking about redistribution of wealth, he was talking about paying off war debt.

    How do I know this? I have the writings of Franklin in my library, and have read it more than once ... and statists have been chopping this quote out f on text at least since I was in college.

    Why didn't you realize his? Because you get your history lessons from cartoons on moon at crazy leftist sites.

    You may now resume your regularly scheduled delusion. </div></div>

    Here's the full quote, then:

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">"All the property that is necessary to a Man, for the Conservation of the Individual and the Propagation of the Species, is his natural Right, which none can justly deprive him of: <span style='font-size: 14pt'>But all Property superfluous to such purposes is the Property of the Publick, who, by their Laws, have created it, and who may therefore by other laws dispose of it, whenever the Welfare of the Publick shall demand such Disposition. He that does not like civil Society on these Terms, let him retire and live among Savages. He can have no right to the benefits of Society, who will not pay his Club towards the Support of it."</span> - Letter to Robert Morris, December 25, 1783

    Read more: http://www.revolutionary-war-and-bey...#ixzz1ugygTtPW
    </div></div>

    Leaving aside the fact that we now have a very large war debt indeed, which would make Franklin's statement apply in our own day on its own, his language is quite clear: WHENEVER THE WELFARE OF THE PUBLICK [sic] SHALL DEMAND SUCH DISPOSITION.

    That is, it is not limited to the war debt of the early country whatsoever.

    Actually, that isn't it either.

    But, you already knew that.

    But, from yor link:

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." - Relating to prices and the poor, 1766
    </div></div>

    Thus does the myth of Ben the promoter or wealth redistribution die on the sharp blade of truth.
