Google Ah, American society and sex. For the number one producer of pornography, American society sure doesn't tolerate sex. We already have Steve Jobs going the 'think-of-the-children' route, and now it seems Google has similar problems - Google is banning so-called "cougar" dating sites from advertising via its network, while on the other hand, it does not have a problem with ads where older men can seek younger women. Hypocrisy, thy name is society.

"For people who are having a hard life, the Right gives them someone to blame


...leeching off the taxpayer, it's not conservatives that want to take money out of your pocket and provide for these people
"

Newsflash, it ain't "these people" who cost your average honest farming boy Joe his tax dollar fortune. How wrong you might feel it is to provide for people in need, it's tax breaks to big oil, big scale public spending (like military in case of US, or for instance inefficient freeways construction/maintenance in case of others) that'll cost you lots of mullah. But yeah, as long as the hate towards people bellow is successfully fueled, our handsomest politicians and their friends will be able to keep there big buck games on. Poor will be busy struggling for their living and middle class will be busy envying poor how cozy their poverty is with fraction of my tax dollars spent. Same stuff happens all over the globe.

Great, so conservatives wanting to give my money to rich people is somehow worse than liberals wanting to give it to poor people?

Ha, I got no hate for people 'below'... I just don't want the government handing them blank checks on my dime (the rich neither).

See, you might be getting the point. ;) There's no point of taking more care of the rich, they are very well positioned to take care of themselves. Favoring those better of over those worse of is wrong on its own.

Welfare does not only serve the people it targets, but also makes sure masses do not grow too desperate, being forced to criminal activity to be able to provide or even overthrow the social system. It is not only fair, but even more effective then poor paying for police to protect rich from themselves.

currently, the system of most industrialized countries is setup very much in favor of very rich people. Hence I go with your liberals at least until a balance is reached.

It sure does not sound like that. Learn to respect people regardless of their social status. You'd be surprised what a mess world would be if we were all rich or even only middle class. Take for instance cleaning our office restrooms. I do not want to do it let me assume you don't either (and I know very few middle class people who would want to or want their children to), but it needs to be done. I value work of people who do. And I wish those people well. Same goes for a lot of services and goods you might just be taking for granted.
