“I think government needs to do more to give people freedom back, and I think that’s true across the board, but particularly on this topic in that I think for too long — and I’ll say this, this is a fairly aggressive term — but I think there are too many poverty pimps in our society.

Liberal Lawyer Cara Creager was all full of condescension as she decried his call for liberty:
If you want me to "live my own destiny," how about not defunding services for disabled adults. How about working to reduce stigma against autistics so that prospective employers don't either accuse me of lying about my diagnosis or make it so I have to hide it or not even be considered? How about you stop using my generation as some kind of bullshit prop for your inefficiency? How about you be honest about the fact that a B.A. is worthless nowadays unless it's in computer science, that student loans are indentured servitude, and that you claim to praise intellect, but not if it's in a disabled body?
I could "live my own destiny" if you didn't put 200 extra pounds of weight on my back from the minute I graduated school. I have trouble walking some days, Governor Walker, but I can still safely say I wouldn't piss on you if you were on fireOf course, she did live her destiny. She didn't become a welfare lifer.
And on it goes. The liberal mockery of human decency, human rights, and humanity itself as liberals try to cubbyhole people into lives they would never dream of living.
