To my observation Republicans particularly in the southeastern portion of the U.S. generally favor relatively little assistance for poor people.

But the same tight fisted Republicans tend to oppose or restrict abortion and insist on the sanctity of life.

Why are they anxious to pay for the production of babies, but not to provide for them later on?

@gollum,
Good observation, gollum. I don't understand either, or do I?
My own take is sort of mean, that these people want to punish others for their own reasons.

@gollum,
It's about hypocrisy and ignorance. They want to control the bodies of women. They're the party of small government, but they don't wish to pay for abortion because? They'll end up paying for the mother and baby's health care, schooling, and food. Government's pay for all the social services for more people. Some young girls should not be responsible for another human when they are still children themselves.
Their philosophy of small government has no meaning. They still want to control other people's lives.

@cicerone imposter,
I used to believe in the idea of limited government. (Or I was taken in by their propaganda.) The Republican idea of small government only applies when it's convenient. You're right in that they are hypocrites. Their views are inconsistent and contradictory.

@TomTomBinks,
It's hard to believe the republicans are for small government when the charts look like this

U.S. federal government spending as a percentage of GDP.

@ehBeth,
Great information. The claims of being for smaller government are BS and they know people won't check. Education is the key.
