The rich conservatives have managed to convince a solid 50% of the country that we can’t do it in America because of black people. Go to /pol or talk to conservatives over a beer. You can show them the stats all day, they’re gonna believe we are different because we have “worthless people” who “suck off the Gov’t” and that they’re forced to subsidize. Especially the poor white folks on Gov’t assistance.
This is it. I’ve seen people argue that “But I paid MINE OFF, so why don’t the rest of you suffer?!” Like that is reason enough to not give a break to the rest of the people. I don’t get this mindset. Honestly, rugged capitalism only benefits the big rich guys at the top and not the rest of us. It’s insane to pretend otherwise. Besides, forgiving them would invigorate the economy.
