A Lesson In The Safety Net!

Pulling slightly ahead in the polls, Mitt Romney tries to soften his image.
The internet is buzzing about the testy interview with Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin), the vice presidential nominee of the Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

The person interviewing the congressman has gotten him upset over a few questions in relation to crime, and firearms.

I've stated this once again for the ones who read this and many articles posted by me and LeReyna:

The safety net includes social security, disability, food stamps, farm aid, Medicare, Medicaid, and welfare.

The middle class, lower class and those who are too poor are the core of the safety net.

With the rising food and gas prices, people are turning to food stamps, food banks and government assistance to keep themselves from landing in the homeless shelter.

Without a safety net, these people will rob and kill those who have the luxuries of having food in the refrigerator or in the pantry. They would steal fuel, water, bread and meat to keep feeding their families. And yet, these Republicans and their conservative allies are thinking the poor are the reasons for the economic recession. Perhaps those who complain about the poor, should walk a day in that person's shoes!

The Republican Party and its allies in the conservative movement are heartless when it comes to the lower and middle class. In their warped minds, the lower class and those who are too poor are stealing from the taxpayers by accepting food stamps, welfare and necessaries.

We've seen how conservatives reacted to the Lifeline Phone program. An Ohio woman  who supports President Barack Obama (by the way, she's Black) was harping about the "OBAMA PHONE". The woman was considered middle class and she was saying that the president was giving away "free stuff" if he's elected!

Now if you're a rational person, you've ignored that! But in the minds of conservatives, this woman is a government parasite, and the word salad of racial slurs and Obama name dropping.

If you're wondering about the dog whistle comments by Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Congressman Paul Ryan, when it comes to food stamps and poverty, you'll hear them say that they're trying to create prosperity not dependency!

The Republicans and their conservative allies are trying to create a NIGGERIZATION of the president.

With talk about the first Black president being aloof, a giver to dependency, and willing to allow events happen while he's partying with celebrities are dog whistles to White conservative males.

The Republicans are feeling that Mitt Romney could win this election after he trounced the president in their first national debate. After weeks of missteps, the month of October starts with more and more political campaigning. Mitt Romney is desperate and is willing to play every card out of the deck!

Paul Ryan was campaigning in Michigan.

The Flint, Michigan local news ABC 12 website scrubbed the exchange and you'll get a sample of the video right here thanks to Buzzfeed.
