    "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

    This proverb demonstrates the difference between the Liberal and Conservative political platforms.

    Conservatives provide proverbs instead of food?

    And this proverb demonstrates the cognitive dissonance that shallow, obtuse liberals display when faced with the truth of their hollow, deceptive political platform.

    I'd rather feed people than bury them with words.

    When are you yanks going to stop thinking of politics as Us vs Them and start to just vote for the best candidate in your riding?

    All the better. Though its origin is debatable.

    Typical moronic stereotyping by a conservative. In the world of FIX news and that fat hog Rush Limp paw, only those fine GOD fearing American conservatives ever worked a day in their lives, served in the military, owned a business, loved their country, or bothered to worship GOD, Yup, these REAL Americans are carrying the load for 100 million+ Liberals who are all collecting welfare, food stamps, hate their country, hate our military, love communism, and lay around all day on their backsides, smoke pot, and want "free stuff"

    It's no wonder the world thinks Republicans are THAT dumb. 🙄

    Would you rather see a family with meager income or single moms dependant upon the government?

    The net result of US welfare is the destruction of families.

    That's the Chinese version, sonny boy.
    The republican version is: "Give a man a fish, he's not going to come to slave for us for a day, teach a man how to fish and we'll take it from him, sell it back to him and he'll thank us in the process."

    In some wealthy societies it is much more likely that someone born in a relatively poorer household will be financially successful later in life, compared to the U.S., so there are more men who are taught to fish, so to speak. Should the U.S. adopt policies that lead to this outcome - financial success being dependent on skill, talent and work rather than luck - in your estimation?

    That's not republican version shav, that's the state worshipper version, both the dims and the republicans and state worshippers everywhere want to train people in state brain washing institutions, take half his working life from him and then give a few crumbs back.
