#4 Problem is - it's not free - someone will end up paying for it in the end one way or another.

#5 > If you're looking for free stuff you don't have to pay for
If you're looking for free stuff you FORCE OTHER PEOPLE TO pay for

#6 I'll give him credit for this one. He had to think fast on his feet and he came up with pretty good answer.
The woman doesn't sound very bright. Like, it kinda makes me wonder, like, where did she go to school, ya know? Typical Obama voter.

#7 Obama is going to pay my rent and give me gas money from his own stash. What do I care if he has to tax some wrinkly old Republican guy to get the cash. They're all racists anyway.
Why wouldn't I vote for Obama? Aside from believing in America, I mean.

#8 "Why wouldn't I vote for Obama?"
Because you're not an IDIOT, Steve. ;-p

#9 Romney did not really answer the heckler right, but when you are up front of a crowd with your prepared speech, someone can throw you off.
The woman said, "So you're all for like, 'yay, freedom,' and all this stuff. And 'yay, like pursuit of happiness.' You know what would make me happy? Free birth control."
Romney needed to say,
"If you want free stuff, then vote for the other guy. Just remember that free stuff runs out when the government goes bankrupt, and then there will be no more free stuff --- for anyone. Nothing is free. Freedom is not free. Try to remember that."

#10 Other People's Money.
Everything is free, when it's paid for with other people's money.
Except everyone pays for "Other People's Money". Pay sales tax? That's somebody's other people's money. Pay rent? A part of that goes to property tax, which is also other people's money for someone.
Have a job? Income tax and FICA are both "Other People's Money." Except the pols only want you to think of somebody else's "Other People's Money" - lately, the rich people are the current source of still more "Other People's Money."
There's no such thing. It's all your money. My money. Our money. Anything you don't pay for directly. Roads. Defense. FAA. Life Insurance, car insurance, health insurance. Disaster relief. Foreign aid. Post office. Government. Every single dime you do not control yourself goes into the giant bin called "Other People's Money."
So pay attention. Other people's money is your money!

#11 Socialism is about squeezing money out of the young (forcing them to get health insurance) to give to the old (using up health insurance at a rapid clip). Now Obama is throwing the young a bone. A very, very small bone and some of them are grabbing on it like a mad dog because they really want to believe they haven't been historically screwed by their savior.
