This election had to be the most polarized of my life time. So why was this the case?
Shortly after people realized that they elected Trump, those who wanted their handouts took to the streets in protest. “I am poor and I need food stamps to feed my kids. Trump wants to take them away from me.” One woman told me.
That is not true. Trump wants you to work for them. What the protest in portland were rallying about was the fact that people who have gotten use to having things handed to them with no effort on their part now have to work for their daily bread. By the way this is a Biblical standard. “If you don’t work you don’t eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10).
One of the problems with Liberals is that they don’t seem to understand the basic idea that if you lower the minimum wage and putting a salary cap on every one would lower the cost of livingl, by forcing the rule of suply and demand, and people who are working but still can’t afford to live than could.
But Welfare is not really the issue ether. I have seen people swipe their food stamp card for their kid’s food and pay for their beer and cigarettes out of their own pocket. Thus the taxpayers are paying to raise this persons child while he or she feeds the addiction that is helping keep them in poverty.
The Bible says that “the poor will always be with you, but you will not always have me [Jesus]” (Matthew 26). The choices that people make put them into the position that they are in. Those choices that are poorly made draws us further away from Christ. In most cases those who are working but can’t afford to live have things in their lives that puts a division between both them and their family and them and Christ.
My wife and I are far from rich but we make due. Today we have no food in my house and only enough money for two quarter pounder meals at McDonald’s, but I get paid tomorrow. Yet, I would have never voted for a Democrat because I don’t believe in welfare.
I have 20/70 vision in my Right eye and am blind in my left yet I never filed for disability, because I can talk to this computer and still make a living. It is my choice not to vote for a woman who has no value for human life because if elected who is to say my life would not be forfeit?
