How do you approach institutions in general when it looks you and yours can never find a path toward more economic security?


Actually, I have pretty much no interest in economic security. I think people should be hungry, they should be motivated to work their ass off to build something, to get something done. Economic insecurity brings clarity to the mind hopefully too. If you can be stupid and fail because of it maybe just maybe you dont want to be stupid.

you dont get it I know, because you are a liberal. I am not a conservative but at least I have some minimal understanding of their beliefs, and they are not always wrong.

I guess Hingehead made up that meme himself, since he refuses to source and date it.

Ted Cruz: First Act as President Will Be to Undo Obama’s Unconstitutional Executive Orders


I can see Walker picking up that idea, or Rand Paul. Anyway it sure sounds good.

@hawkeye10,
And you have that most prominent of conservative traits - a '**** you jack I'm OK' lack of empathy.

Nothing in what I said stops people from working their asses off to improve their situation.

That you don't get it is no surprise to me at all.

Only because you refuse to believe what I tell you about why I believe what I believe. Such rudeness and lack of faith in humans is unfortunately a trait I often see in the left. Not so much in the right.

Who said that it did. Again you refuse to pay attention, you substitute your fantasy for what other people say.

The Koch Brothers have picked their man for 2016 and it's Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. He never graduated college and has held political office since he was 26. He's 47 now. He's anti-union, anti-abortion (including rape and incest), opposes gay marriage, attends an evangelical Christian church, cuts taxes, supports school vouchers, cuts public education funding, and supports abstinence only sex education.

And so far he's the best candidate the Republicans have. I give you Mitt Romney 2.0! Cool

@jcboy,
The Koch Bros have been wrong before. So I really do not care who they support as their interests do not line up with mine.

@jcboy,
At this point Walker is clearly the best bet for the R's. That doesnot mean that he will not fall apart under the grind.

I like Walker but I don't think he is going to make it through the next year plus. The bias media is going to do everything they can to take him apart and do their best to keep Hillary at the top of the list.

The disfunction in the WI jobs agency is really bad for Walker. The program is mismanaged and Walker was the boss.

Quote:
Madison (WKOW) -- A new national poll shows Governor Scott Walker polling at 0 percent in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

The CNN/ORC poll released Sunday shows there were five candidates who received less than one percent of support from likely Republican voters. Walker was among them, joined by former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and former New York Governor George Pataki. Less than one percent equates to zero percent, statistically.

The results show Donald Trump is still the front-runner with 24 percent, but has lost ground from earlier in the month. However Carly Fiorina jumped to second place with 15 percent.

Another category Walker falters in is recognition. Walker has the second-worst polling numbers in name recognition. The poll shows 25 percent of likely Republican voters say they've never heard of him. All other candidates except for Ohio governor John Kasich were more recognizable to likely Republicans.

The poll began the day after the most recent Republican debate on CNN

@ehBeth,
Walker for about the last month has been arguing that the elite need to keep him in as the backup establishment guy after Bush, but these numbers are so bad that the argument does not work, that is Marco Rubio's role.

Quote:
Walker has had lower negatives than many of his rivals — lower than Republicans such as Trump, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. In theory, that gives him a higher ceiling.

The bad news is that he seems to have a lower floor, too, hitting rock bottom at 1% or 2% in some recent state and national polls. That suggests not only that his support last spring was something of a mirage — soft and unsustainable — but that he lacks a bedrock base of firm support going forward.

“It's not like (GOP voters) suddenly don't like Scott Walker any more. They're just more excited about other people,” said Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm that has polled frequently on the GOP race.

“Walker still has relatively low (negatives),” says Gallup’s Newport. “He doesn’t have to beat back a bad image, but he has to create an image.

I think that is right...he is the anti union guy but unions have been getting creamed for a long time, it is not a big issue for the right. What else is this guy Walker about? Based upon his campaign IDK. He was supposed to be about economic revitalization but Wisconsin reality has not cooperated. He seems to have nothing else. That he is about the poorest person running would have been good, but he has taken too much money from the elite for that to work.

Quote:
Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With this in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately," Walker said at a news conference in Madison, Wisconsin.

He encouraged other trailing Republican candidates to follow his path.

"I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner," said Walker, referencing businessman Donald Trump. "This is fundamentally important to the future of our party, and, more important, the future of the country."

What a putz, Walker is out because he was rejected by the people and since his horrible first debate by the elite as well. He is out of money and he is polling at around 1%. He is out because he failed, not because he is doing a good deed. Everyone knows this. He was probably washed up in this profession anyways but he could have gone out with some class.
