Every time a nation has risen out of poverty, it did so through the power of thinking minds; not government. No nation has ever taxed itself into prosperity. Liberal programs like LBJ's war on poverty did nothing but create more poverty. Since government has proven itself unfit to win the war on poverty, why should we ever look to the government for any financial help? If you like being in poverty, thank a liberal.
LBJ, what was your exit strategy for the war on poverty?
