Mitt Romney said this;
"There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax…."Now he's saying that those comments were "not elegantly stated" and that they were "spoken off the cuff."
Off the cuff just means it wasn't scripted, rehearsed or sugar coated. He said exactly what he meant, how he wanted to say it, and with complete honesty. This is how he feels. It's not surprising coming from a privileged, racist, prick like him. This man does not care about the elderly, the poor, or the lower-middle class. He doesn't care if you're working two jobs, one job, if you're unable to get a job, or if you're too old to work.
And by the way, what is wrong with the 47% of you Americas out here thinking you have the right to food and shelter? That's just asking for too much. (*joking/sarcasm*)
Okay, not joking anymore, am I the only person who thinks Paul Ryan looks creepy? He looks like he could play one of those rapists on SVU.
Okay, no more jokes. On a more serious note people, Romney's comments really disturbed me. I believe that people should feel like they are entitled to food and shelter. It is a basic human right, to have food and shelter.
Oh, and sense we're talking about entitlement...
HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO, THERE WERE WHITE PEOPLE WHO FELT THEY WERE ENTITLED TO WHATEVER THEY WANTED. SO THEY CAME TO A NEW LAND AND DESTROYED MANY TRIBES. SHED BLOOD AND TOOK OVER. THEN THEY KIDNAPPED SOME DARK SKINNED PEOPLE AND MADE THEM SLAVES. THEY FORCED THEM TO WORK DAY AFTER DAY, BEAT THEM, RAPED THEIR WOMEN, AND ENJOYED THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR.
THIS COUNTRY WAS STOLEN FROM THE NATIVES, AND REBORN OFF THE SWEAT OF OUR PEOPLE'S BACKS AND YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT ENTITLEMENT.
