    Liberal "promises'" were worth the paper that they were printed on.

    How many poor white/black folks in the Appalachians still living in poverty, pumping water, no indoor plumbing 23 TRILLION DOLLARS LATER?

    Time for Democrat "carpet baggers" to pay their dues, huh?

    One reason is that it made dependence on government permanent.  Another reason is that poverty is defined as a certain percentage of the population so it will always be there.

    LBJ's Great Society incentivized dependency just like the Dems and left are still doing now. They are THE ENEMY AMERICA. Yet, us sane conservatives still do not stoop to their level and attack them for wearing 'Biden for Senator' hats

    LBJ did some good things domestically (medicare, civil rights, etc.  appointing Thurgood Marshall to SCOTUS)

    but Vietnam was unforgivable.  it overrides all the good he did.
