Political Parties

It is my understanding that the Libertarian, Neo Liberal, the compassionate

Conservative and the Progressive share one thing in common even though it may
see that way. All seek the means to find a "Just Society" in which
this nation can benefit economically and socially. The view point of the

Libertarian on W2, would use the argument of it is not fare for those whom had
to work hard for what they have. Why should somebody who is able to work should
be given another chance to better themselves. Not only did my taxes try to help
you, but you didn't even take advantage of it. The underclass that did not take
in to full consideration of what was being given to them. They shouldn't be
given help, its their problem that they are where they are and why should I pay
for their mistakes? The means of making yourself a better citizen and working
force are there. If I worked hard why cant you? The view point of the

Libertarian is strong in saying you must take action for your responsibility as
a working citizen that is able to fend for themselves. And it is not the
governments role to help you live your life. Instead helping the underclass it
making matters worse not only is government making people believe that
government is there to pay for your mistakes, especially when its my hard earned
money on the line. In order to really help the underclass is by giving the power
to non profit organizations, churches, community centers where people really are
affected, not in some building that will make you think, " Oh I can afford
to quit my job, because I know that I get that welfare check and the food
stamps." The final thought from the Liberal is that it doesn't see that
governments role is to make life easier. The Neo-Liberal, " We must talk
about such things as efficiency and effectiveness is we ever want to achieve
social justice". The question the N.L. would raise is why haven't these
people better themselves? ? it is our responsibility as leaders and as citizens
to help fellow Americans. Thus we must find what went wrong. The N.L., which I
will admit I don't fully understand its view points that well. I would say is a
lot more willing to spend tax payers money on more programs such as W2, to help
those of the underclass to obtain a better living standard. But programs that
help, meaning that it just doesn't make people who need it but keeping the main
idea that, to create "effectiveness". Effectiveness in which we can
see the results, and do away with biased programs such as affirmative action
which are in reality unjust and unethical. The compassionate Conservative main
idea and focus to my understanding is "free market". The C.C. would
say that the government shouldn't create another program to help those that for
some reason did not benefit from it. To help the underclass by doing away with
such programs that don't help, but in fact make their situation worse. These
individuals were given the chance, no, the opportunity to better themselves. Why
should government continue to give a free ride to these individuals that do not
take the individual responsibility. Let the individual take action for his or
her responsibility to make it in the free market . And not waiting for the
government to continue it's free ride. Its view points is that government is not
doing its duty by helping the free market , by creating more programs with tax
payers money that don't affect the root of the problem, the community. You cant
change a person, but you can change the environment in which they live. Also I
see that it is more willing to give power to the churches and community centers.

Rather than to create more programs that do not help the free market , but
create more social problems , i.e. teen pregnancies and welfare abuse. The

Progressives view point is that the key to social justice os the barrier of
racism. That the biggest problem in the underclass is black America. It is a
common stereotype that it is black America that faces this problem. The reality
is that it isn't just minorities its also is the white Americans. In order to do
away with this problem the view point of the Progressive is the encouragement of
racial diversity. Therefore creating tolerance for one another would reach
