liberalism is a disease is a registered user.

This is what happens when the dems run the state. The false appearance of caring for the poor and downtrodden turns into the inevitable lifelong handouts that keep these lemmings voting democrat, so their handouts never end. It's a sad cycle these lifetime losers find themselves on, but that's what the dems are counting on........
