Conservatives truly do care about the needy. Except they only care about the "truly" needy, so not all those lazy poor people who work more than forty hours a week and still cannot make ends meet. Okay, so they do not really care about the needy. The heartless, irrational hatred conservatives have for poor people is truly disgusting, and it especially disturbing when it comes from people who themselves could be considered poor. They have essentially created a "no true poor person" fallacy, which says anyone who is poor can blame only themselves or the evil government which is trying to take everyone's money by taxing the top one percent a little bit more.Read More

The United States government spends a vast portion of the tax dollars they collect on the military; they spend more on the military than they do on anything else and more than several other countries spend on their militaries combined. There is no nation in the world that even comes close to the United States' military prowess.
