...according to the liberal mentality, because these people weren't lucky enough to be born responsible, hard working, and thoughtful. The level of their reward is in direct proportion to their irresponsibility, laziness, and ignorance,....

Oh what a bunch of stereotyping poppycock!

I'm of a "liberal mentality" and so is my DH.
I retired at age 51; he at age 59.
We have a nice paid-for home, no debt, and enough money to live on for the rest of our lives with plenty left over for our heirs to p!ss away if they choose :-)

No one ever gave us anything. It was all accumulated through decades of hard work, saving/investing, and somehow we managed to enjoy life along the way.

How do you supppose that happened? I tend to credit our parents, Depression Era FDR Liberals who instilled a sense of responsibility and the merits of education and hard work.
