Original Starting post for this thread:
Toni Morrison:

"In thinking carefully about the strengths of the candidates, I stunned myself when I came to the following conclusion: that in addition to keen intelligence, integrity and a rare authenticity, you exhibit something that has nothing to do with age, experience, race or gender and something I don't see in other candidates. That something is a creative imagination which coupled with brilliance equals wisdom.... There have been a few prescient leaders in our past, but you are the man for this time."

Caroline Kennedy:

"Sometimes it takes a while to recognize that someone has a special ability to get us to believe in ourselves, to tie that belief to our highest ideals and imagine that together we can do great things. In those rare moments, when such a person comes along, we need to put aside our plans and reach for what we know is possible. We have that kind of opportunity with Senator Obama.....

I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspired them. But for the first time, I believe I have found the man who could be that president — not just for me, but for a new generation of Americans."

As a liberal, I also believe in a wise, just, intelligence, strong foreign policy.

I believe in advancing the cause of Civil Rights.

I believe in encouraging enterprise, but regulating business to prevent the worst excesses of capitalism.

I believe in using the government to improve infrastructure and transportion (e.g., interstate highways).

I believe in the USA setting an example to the rest of the world about the virtues of representative goverment and democracy....with justice and liberty and equality and equal opportunity for all...

I believe in using money to create spaces for parks and recreation and preserving wilderness areas.....

I believe in government protecting us from crime.... and providing for the common defense.... and promoting "the general welfare."

That last phrase is a clause from our Constitution.

The operative term should be minimum and temporary. Someone should not be able to spend a lifetime being a parasite on those who chose to work, obey the law, and make decisions with their children in mind. If society is to care for the children, then they should be removed from the environment of poverty and crime. If a woman is going to reproduce like a farm animal, she should not expect for society to foot the bill. If she refuses to earn a living and be a parent, then the child should be removed from the home.Americans are spending large amounts of money on 3rd world adoptions. Let the adoptions begin here. If we let it be known that you will receive ZERO money for dependent children, either they will get a job, stop reproducing, or give the children up. The libs want compassion, Clinton says it takes a village, so lets just let the village do what the parents refuse to do.

All the lib's want to do is take from those that earn the money and give it to the one who will not work...that is called socialism and is what both hussein and hitlary are all about...why? because they buy votes from poor people that way.

Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine and other founding fathers also thought it was appropriate for goverment to use tax money for poor relief. Do you think these founding fathers should be ignored on this issue? Do you see that there has been a long tradition of using tax money to care for the poor going back to the era of the early Republic?

The richest country on earth should be able to provide a minimum safety net of security for people, including food stamps and health coverage.

If people chose to help others, let them do it. Charity should be a moral decision that a person makes, it should not be forced at threat of prison or asset seizure by the government. By all means, if you want to give half of your income to some welfare mother, go for it. But do not force others to support them.

Only responding to the original OP and not reading any responses thereto, I was beyond astounded to see Bob DeNiro jump on the Obama bandwagon as well. I am more astounded that he voiced any endoresement of any kind. He has always been one of those silent hollywoodites who has never came forward to support any candidate, at least not to my recollection. He is always one to be very private.

I think a choice between personal responsibility and helping your neighbor is a false choice. We can do both.

Yes, Sap I am for cutting off aid. The cycle must stop. If there is no check, people will get a job. If there is a choice of hunger or education, people will get an education. Do you not find it strange that the South East Asians who came here with NO education, or language skills have managed to succeed in America? Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians, and the sub- groups with in them have managed to make it here and build a middle class or better in less than 40 years. Why are the schools bad? Could it be that they hire unqualified teachers? Look at the number of Physicians that come here from Jamaica, Nigeria, Pakistan, and India. These people often went to poor primary schools, but got the basic knowledge to go to good universities. Again, if you are 16 and decide to have a baby, you do not have the right to be supported for life. The democrats are breeding a constituency to keep them in power. The perpetual victim class that has made Jackson, Sharpton and Farakan wealthy men will always be there as long as we allow it. Back in the early part of the 20th century, when the idea of welfare and redistribution of wealth came up, a wise man said. "if you rob from Peter to pay Paul, Paul will vote for you every time."
