As far as the name calling and morality question, I don't think you want to go there, I haven't seen too many, other than the Conservatives do to much of either of those things.
One, the Constitution says absolutely nothing about social welfare programs and they are relatively new, coming into existence in the 1930' and growing from that.
Two, the Constitution does state
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Republicans, maybe not. That is why I left the Republican Party. I am not willing to accept these actions as status 'quo'. Listen to the radio piece, http://www.wtpshow.com/?p=342. If we continue down this path our nation will be bankrupt in the hands of China. Are you ok with that? Where is the REAL CHANGE we CAN BELIEVE IN?
