Many liberals.... the majority in fact.... are not parasites and leaches.

What's strange is that they passionately vote for and support those who are.

"they passionately vote for and support those who are."

How are liberal politicians leeches as compared to right-wing politicians?

"Liberals tend to let other people do the work. They then complain about the pay."

Right-wingers never do that?

"Failure to be generous can be punished with death,"

I didn't know that....Can you give examples?

You are welcome for the $10k I paid in US federal income taxes for a country I don't even live in this year.

Sincerely, A Liberal

"Electing president Obama is a punishment equivalent of death."

Are you writing from a mental hospital?

"It is called life in America under this presidency."

So as long as Obama is president you might as well be dead?

I wasn't thinking of politicians..... there are good politicians and career hacks on both sides.

Over the last 15 years the number of K thru 12 students in New York state has DROPPED by 4.6%.... but the number of education administrators has RISEN by 34% over the same time, from around 32,000 to 43,000.

Not teachers, administrators.... 34% more to take care of 5% fewer students.... and it is not just New York.... california is worse.... there is one administrator for EVERY SINGLE professor in the UC system.

Those people are parasites.... there is no need for them and they drain resources away from where the money should go.... like better pay for quality teachers.

The same is true of government bureaucracy all over.... no profit motive and no accountability to hold them in check.... but liberals keep voting in politicians who seem to see no downside to unlimited government expansion.

Generally speaking, yes.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 17, 2012 10:18:31 AM PDT
Definitely.

"they passionately vote for and support those who are."

If you weren't thinking about politicians why did you talk about those who are voted for?

"Those people are parasites...."

There are "parasites" in all fields......It's not as if there aren't parasites in the private sector.

Both your OP and the headline of this thread referenced "liberals".... you made no reference to politicians... you may have had politicians in mind but you did not say it.

And yes, there are parasites in the private sector, but the problem is self correcting.... when a true private sector business gets too larded up with pointless middle management, they restructure or go out of business.

But when worthless educrats suck up half the resources in a school system, we throw more taxpayer money at them.

Healthcare should be between the individual, health care practitioners, health care facilities, insurance companies, and employers (if they should elect to provide health care coverage as a condition of employment).

Regulation should be minimal, preferably performed by private agencies and arbitrators.

Any parasites and leeches in that system would be weeded out pretty quickly. Politicians would already have been the first to go.
