|ABORT the 47% ???|
But tomorrow, some of the surviving 53% might also be down and hence would also be written off, in ever new rounds of 'tough love'.
Regarding 'the down and out' as permanently down is like a circular firing squad
In this numbers game, after a series of round of recessions and booms, very few people would be left in America, period - either to pay federal taxes or simply to breath free.
If Hitler had won the war and the world, the Nazis would have had round after round of purification trials, till almost nobody would be left alive - sort of like the Russian Politburo under Stalin or what happened in the last days of the French Revolution.
Purity and perfection tests never end, never are satisfied.
Ditto for Romney and Ryan who, unknowingly, are both advocates of seeing the world through the unvarying spectacles of the K-selecting eugenicist.
The world, to the K-selecting eugenicist, is simple, predictable and static.
In their view of world ecology, the whole world is one big niche, yesterday-today-tomorrow , and their job is to find the beings that best fill that permanent niche and discard the rest.
Commensalists, such as myself, feel differently : call us r-selecting types.
We don't believe in putting our eggs and sperm in one basket.
We see the world as dynamic and unpredictable, always changing.
See it filled with many constantly changing niches that are only partially and temporally filled by many different types of beings: we welcome diversity and feel it to be the best protection possible against tomorrow's unexpected massive changes.
We are not at all surprised to learn that some "pure-blooded" aboriginal tribes were almost totally wiped out by something like childhood measles, with the only survivors being a few "half-breeds", the children of tribe members who married Europeans with built-in resistance to measles.
We prefer to think of them as displaying hybrid resilience, not half-breed decadence, and we think the hard scientific evidence to prove it is on OUR side.
Romney's soaring political rhetoric sounds so good but it is based on outmoded, incorrect, science and when it collides with physical reality, it will always crash and burn....
