Heyo, decided to check this place out on Danarhea's recommendation. I consider myself a moderate, although many might consider me a liberal. To me I'm a moderate because, for instance I think things like helping the poor and encouraging individual responsibility can happen at the same time, thereby meeting both liberal and conservative ideals. You just have to look beyond the status quo.

Welcome to Debate Politics!

Helping the poor with individual responsibility...hopefully that is possible.
Interested in hearing more. For instance, how would you require folks to work that simply refuse?

Well, if someone "simply refuses" they are outta luck and should get no help. More than likely though the vast majority of the able bodied poor could be turned around through drug and alcohol rehab, education and job training. Help them find what they are good at, clear their head, and get them the tools necessary to be able to start down the right path.

There is a whole lot of wasted potential hiding out in America's underclass. Thats not good for our prosperity, our national security or anything else.

But hey, lemme save it for the real threads :lol:

But don't worry, I'm very docile now, so I'll probably not bother with your inane discussions. :2razz:
