Why do liberals think everyone needs to pay for everyone else.


The left constantly berates the Right for not being willing to fund their social pet projects. Why should I be willing to pay for others willingly, when those folks just don't hard enough? Any honest thoughts as to why some feel it is their "right" to have others pay?

    You have stated eloquently the differences between the two points of view. Thank you. And you're right, the government couldn't run a free lunch counter.

    Dash, thanks for the reply I have to disagree with one statement and that is about the opportunities for the "poor", What do you consider poor? The bum on the corner or the family on food stamps? Liberal plans are enabling..Free stuff isn't free.

    I agree with much of what you say. However I don't believe the people who are "complaining" are the "rank and file" poor people. They don't have the mouthpiece/bullhorn. They're rich liberals, media darlings, & activists cutting deal with politic

    Thank you for your reply. I agree 100% with your assessment. Sure there are some who deserve it as they worked for so long. I agree those are the ones that deserve it.

    They can volunteer they need to keep skills sharp and to start feeling good about themselves again, Of course they have value, just like you or I.

    Thank you Christian, it is NOT supposed to be a requirement to help someone else as I may not be able to afford to spend the extra. You also bring up a great point, the gov't does not run anything well, USPS and Amtrak spring to mind
