Many vote for the candidate who promises the most giveaways

POSTED: June 29, 2011 1:00 a.m.

The letter from Mr. Fearn on Saturday implied that teachers where stupid if they voted for Nathan Deal because he intended to cut education budgets (along with a lot of other things).

Well, I receive Social Security and Medicare but I would vote to cut them because I don't want my children and grandchildren to be buried in debt because my generation did not provide for itself. So I suppose that makes me stupid also?

The point obviously is that we vote for many reasons, not always for the one who will give us the most. The biggest problem with this country is that most folks do vote for who will give them someone else's money. Congress knows it and makes promises to give people money to get their votes, both parties.
