I dare say not.
I am not Republican nor Democrat. I have no affiliation with the Independent or Tea Parties. I am just me, I know what is right and I know what is wrong.
Almost everything that is taking place within this government at this time in our history is just wrong. I have never asked for any Federal, State, or County help. If I can’t do it for myself then I just do without, I have pride in myself as a man. I have no problem helping other’s that do need help. But, I will not help others that can do as I do. All they have to do is get up off their dead butts and work. There is no free lunch or there should not be for a man that can work, but will not.
Social Security was never designed to do what it is doing in this day and time. Social Security was designed to help the retired working man and woman, that had payed into a system, that made a promise to that working man and woman. That promise was, that at a certain age, they were entitled to monetary assistance in the form of a government check that was based on what they had paid into it. I will say it again and again until I am blue in the face. This entitled monetary assistance was a promise made by this Federal Government to the working man and woman of these United States of America and no other.
But it is not working out that way. It is not for every man, woman, or child that get into this country, through what amounts to an open border policy of the powers that be. But it is taking place. It is not for every woman, regardless of their color, or race who decides in all their wisdom to have seven children out of wedlock with seven different men.
I did say men and not fathers. Because these men are not fathers they are just D.N.A. donors, that have little or no time for their child. Most of these men will never become part of the family unit. My heart truly does go out to the elderly, the young, the mentally and the physically impaired. By all means help these that are truly needy. Not the one that brags about having another child, and the increase in assistance because of the so called entitlements that go to these people (that for the most part have never payed into the social security system), the working man and woman will pay the price in the near future.
The system is broke. The Federal Government has raped and pillaged the Social Security System’s treasure chest. They have in turn filled it with I.O.U’s broken promises and lies. Entitlements, the only people that are due these entitlement’s are the hard working men and women of this great and proud country. The country that they built with blood, sweat and many tears of the workers, not of the takers. These workers be they black, white, or brown skinned they are the only ones that deserve these entitlements.
We have in our country, three to four generations of people that from cradle to grave, have never done anything to help themselves. Their hands are open and will stay open until the giving is stopped.
I have a very close and dear friend, that opened up to me. He told me that when he went on unemployment, the government made it so easy to get free money. He felt like he would be a fool not to take the money, like so many others. But as it turned out it was not free. It cost him his dignity and soul. He told me that it made him lazy, and he stayed depressed because he had nothing to do. He had always been a hard worker and still is. This all took place over two years of his unemployment. He is now working and seems to be a happy and productive man.
The working men and women of this country are tired, they are tired because they are, in most cases doing the work of two for the same pay. This is just not fair to the worker. The worker is keeping up the ones that will not work. These non workers have been taught how to play the system. They have been taught by others, but they have also been taught by a government for the past fifty months that they are entitled to free health care, free food and anything else that the government can steal or take from the worker. Entitled to what? Everything that they want so long as you vote us in and keep us in office. I for one, will not hold back my words. Throw the bums out of office.
I mean all the parties, we must start over while we still can. Nero is in the White House, we all know what happened to the great and powerful Rome. As Nero fiddled Rome burned to the ground. Is America just before catching fire? I for one do think so. Marie Antoinette told the French people of 1789 during the French Revolution, that if you have no bread, then just eat cake. We know what happened to her.
The powers in the White House have spent over twenty million of the tax payers dollars on just four trips to Hawaii for their Christmas vacations. The last one cost seven million dollars. You have people in this county that struggle to survive on less than seven thousand dollars a year. Welcome to crazy world, what is right is wrong and what is wrong is right. I can make you one promise, you ain’t seen nothing yet folks.
Bring back the dignity and soul of this country. You all know that if you have to work for something it means so much more to you. I don’t look up to the actors or rock stars of this country nor a man that thinks he is a dictator. I look up to the working men and women of this country, that gets up every day and goes to work, sick or not. Because they have pride and a work ethic. They have a hope of a better day and a better way of life for their children, and their country. This country is still great and powerful, it was made that way by hard working people, people working for a common goal. A safe and secure life.
We have a history of over five hundred years here in this land that we now call the United States of America. I beg of you do not let this great nation of ours pass to dust like the other great nations of the worlds past history. We the people and I mean all the people, working together as one, can turn it around. We have to, we have no choice. Do not let this country waste away to nothing.
