We have a large group
that believes only “Black Lives Matter.” We have political candidates who
apologize for saying white lives matter, too. One is not just a politician...
he’s a former governor running for the presidency.
We have another presidential candidate who is a declared
socialist... a popular candidate. He’s popular because dumbed-down Americans
haven’t got a real clue as to what socialism is. Americans are so uninformed
they think freedom exists even in a socialist state. He wants to give kids –
probably all kids from all nations because, after all, he’s a socialist – a
free college education. No thought is given to what that would do to the
already suffering state of America’s institutions of higher learning. No
thought is given as to how to pay for it. Certainly no CNN announcer asked
about how to pay for it during the Democrat Presidential Debate.
We have a third candidate who, when the public is asked to
describe her, the first words out of a majority of American mouths are “liar”
or “untrustworthy.” Yet a large number of voters say she’d make a good
President. How stupid can people be? She is obviously guilty of criminal
behavior that should have put her behind bars long ago... and she is the more
popular of the three Democrat candidates who think she would be a honest
Thus, my question: Aside from military strength (which has
not been constitutionally implemented since World War II), does America matter?
We have a President of the United States who doesn’t qualify
for his position as a natural born (Constitutional as decided by the Supreme
Court) American who has committed offenses against the American people that
make him a good candidate for charges of Impeachment (if not treason). He has
bowed to Muslim leaders with apologies for America’s greatness – and he’s done
all within his power to remove what greatness we once had. He has given a
Muslim nation access to nuclear weapons when that nation’s citizens once
kidnapped Americans from their Embassy and held them for over a year in a
highly abusive terrorist environment. Today they chant “Death to America” on
the streets of Teheran. Obviously they are just the radical people to whom we
should give the power to destroy us!
This same President has stolen money from the Social
Security “lock-box” and removed tax dollars paid into the fund (to be used only
for Social Security recipients) and made billions of dollars available to
illegal aliens. Seniors dependent on Social Security will get no cost-of-living
increase in 2016 because of the theft. He has ruined the finest health care
system in the world and used Medicare funds to support what he considers his
“legacy.” Obamacare is such a disaster it is an apt legacy for this disaster of
Our veterans cannot get health care at VA hospitals – but
illegals have access to Medicare. I have a friend in Georgia who had 2/3 of her
colon removed 18 months ago because of colon cancer. She cannot get Medicare
(federal) or Medicaid (state), cannot get disability, cannot get any access to
any medical treatment or benefits. She has been unable to see a physician since
her surgery because she has no income and no benefits... but bet your bottom
dollar that the millions of illegals in Georgia don’t have trouble getting
benefits – her benefits.
Until recently we had a United States Attorney General who
thinks it is okay to prosecute voter intimidation cases when the intimidator is
white, but not when the intimidator is black. A bunch of big guys swinging
clubs in front of a voting precinct didn’t bother either the Attorney General
or the President... both of whom supported protesters turned rioters in
Ferguson, MO. They support the unlawful actions of Baltimore’s mayor and
prosecutor when a man with an arrest record longer than your arm died in a
police van and the police are charged with murdering the law breaker.
We have people who think it is okay to stay home and accept
welfare – or, extended unemployment benefits – rather than look for a job. They
willingly put their hand in their neighbor’s pocket to pay for it. Many of them
say they’re Christians but obviously don’t know what the word “covet” means (it
means putting your hand in your neighbor’s pocket to take what’s theirs so you
can have yours – see the Ten Commandments for clarification). Women think it’s
okay to have a child every year to increase their welfare check – and they,
too, put their hands in the pockets of their working neighbors. Or, if it’s
inconvenient to have the baby they can kill it while it’s still in the womb.
Where is the compassion for the productive people of our
society? And our problems have far less to do with race and far more to do with
the productive versus the non-productive. I have for many years thought we are
in an undeclared Civil War in America. That war is being fought between the
productive and the non-productive.
We have employers who think it’s okay to hire illegals
because they work for less pay and the employer has no unemployment or Social
Security taxes to pay for illegal workers. Illegals rent a house intended for
one family and slum landlords turn their heads while ten families live there.
Illegals send their money to a Latin American or other nations... it’s not
spent in America. It does not stimulate our economy. Instead, income sent from
landed aliens, both legal and illegal, is the second highest source of income
No Social Security, unemployment insurance and state and
federal taxes are withheld from illegal paychecks yet they are given access to
Social Security, health, unemployment and other costly services. The useful
idiots will tell you that illegals make an economic contribution to our society
but the numbers say that for every dollar they put into the system, they take
$3 out in unearned benefits. and entitlement spending is what is bankrupting
the nation. Our politicians know this so bankruptcy must be something they want
Churches push collectivist and socialist ideals from the
pulpit when the very core of Christ’s teaching was self-responsibility and
individuality. They teach that to love thy neighbor means prostrating yourself
and being used as a rug rather than setting a good example of how to be
successful and teaching others how to do it. Which ideology better expresses
love? Love is not romance. It is commitment to another’s happiness and
well-being. Do you think people stuck in poverty due to welfare benefits are
happy? No. They’re out protesting and rioting because they have nothing better
We have corporations that are so impressed with their
international status that they have no sense their success came to them only
because their roots are American. They have no sense of responsibility or
gratitude to this country. And we have politicians who want to continue giving
them an advantage over non-multi-international companies by renewing the
worthless Export-Import Bank.
Politicians (and a lot of their Christian constituents) want
amnesty for illegals. “After all,” liberals (and many Republicans) weep,
“illegals have lived here a long time and it would be cruel to send them back
to Mexico or to separate them from their children!”
What’s cruel is their illegal entry into our country. What’s
cruel is the diseases they bring into our country... diseases (like
tuberculosis) we did away with in America years ago. What’s cruel are illegals
that send hundreds of billions of dollars back home to their families in Mexico
every year, removing those untaxed funds from a dying American economy. What’s
cruel is forcing American kids to drop out of school and/or have low-quality
educations because of classmates who can’t speak English. What’s cruel? Having
veterans who have defended this nation die from lack of care in a VA hospital
because funds are diverted to pay health care for illegals is cruel. School
systems have emerged that favor minority rights over those of non-minorities...
of Muslims over Christians; of girls over boys. There is no balance. The
compassion for American-born kids and the parents who pay taxes to support the
education system is – where? I can’t find it.
We have government employees earning up to three times more
than people working in the private sector doing the same job. They tell us
they’re taxpayers, too – and apparently don’t have the mathematical skills to
understand that 100 percent of their salaries come from taxes paid by
productive people in the private sector, but they only repay 0 to 30 percent of
that cost to the Treasury in income taxes… a huge net loss.
And politicians don’t understand why the Conservative
movement is so strong? Please! They don’t understand that any better than they
understand why conservative voters don’t support candidates that come from the
political establishment. They thought Trump and Carson and Fiorina and Cruz
would go away. They aren’t going to go away. ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE POLITICAL
ESTABLISHMENT: You have lost the public trust.
So how do we, as a people, unify around all of this
disunity? How do we rebuild our nation? How do we get rid of the totally
corrupt political establishment?
