braindead08 said, about 5 hours ago@truecanadianliberal:disgustedtaxpayer was born in 1932, so he was not 21 until 1953. Ike was re-elected in 1956.-Remember, 18 year olds were not allowed to vote in those days. Get married, yes. Die in battle, yes. Vote, uh-uh.(end quoted post)***thanks, braindead, you are a wise person to know that voting age was 21 when Truman ran in 1948. My parents voted for Dewey, who lost. I still couldn’t vote when Ike ran for his first term….and I am a “she”…but everything else you said is true. -@eryx…what is the “lie” about Obama on welfare? He has indeed wiped out the requirement for work (real work) for welfare recipients, authorizing states to finalize Obama’s executive order to HHS.p.s. watch the GOP convention uninterrupted on CSPAN to hear the entire list of Obama’s wrong policies and decisions….it is not just his ridiculing successful business creators….it is his marxist re-distribution economics that keeps America in a long-term non-recovery! 23 million unemployed and under-employed….with a true and honest “unemployment rate” of between 15% and 20% of the total of available workers.
