The question I started the title of this article off with is, obviously, a rhetorical question and any thinking person will realize that and already know the answer. I have never forgotten the bumper sticker I saw on a car, up in Tennessee, I think it was, years ago now. It said “I trust my president, and my government.” There was a lady driving the car, and I guess my commentary (spoken to myself) was rather a bit uncharitable. I thought, Lady, you’re an idiot if you actually believe what that bumper sticker on you car says.
Government has lied to so many about so much for so long that anyone that believes anything they tell us is probably a candidate for the rubber room, right along side that guy who thinks he’s Napoleon.
Not only that, but those in government, for the most part, laugh at us ordinary folks. Just this week I read a column by Jeff Crouere at http://www.ringsidepolitics.com where he commented on Pocahontas, aka Elizabeth Warren, from socialist Massachusetts. Warren was campaigning in Iowa and promoting her socialist scheme to eliminate student tuition debt. A father confronted her at a campaign event there, at which a video was made of what went on. The father said: “My daughter is getting out of school. I saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get any money back?” To which Warren responded in a condescending manner “Of course not!” But the Dad wasn’t finished, and you could tell he was getting ticked at Pocahontas. He replied to her: “So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money, and those of us who did the right thing get screwed…My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacations. I saved my money. He made more than I did. But I worked a double shift, worked extra–my daughter worked since she was 10.”
At that point, Dad realized that Warren didn’t give a tinkers damn about what he was saying, so he said to her “So you’re laughing.” Warren then sought to tell him she wasn’t laughing. Needless to say, she failed to convince him. He got his parting shot in when he said: “Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re doing. We did the right thing and we get screwed.” At that point Warren had already written him off and was on her way to her next patsy. Warren apparently has no use for people that try to do the right thing. She is too busy pandering to the socialist deadbeats she fervently hopes will be stupid enough to vote for her if only she promises them enough freebies.
Warren is sadly, typical of most of what is running for offices both at state and federal levels nowadays. She has no time or patience for those who do try to do the right thing. She is too busy trying to give away what they have worked hard for to some socialist loser who doesn’t want to bother working.
I watched awhile back as AOC unveiled her grandiose plans for our future, part of which was a guaranteed annual income for those who do not want to work. Again, I guess uncharitably, my first thought was “Lady, you’ve got to be some kind of stupid if you think those who sweat working for a living are going to be really overjoyed paying a yearly income to those who are too lazy to get out and sweat themselves.” Yet that’s what she is expecting. Where does she think (if she does) that the money is going to come from to support those deadbeats too lazy to work? It’s going to have to come, obviously, from people who do work.
That’s the main problem with so much of this garbage the socialists pour out there–especially their “redistribution of the wealth” agenda. They are going to soak the people who do work in order to pay those that won’t–and they think that those who do work will be deliriously happy to pay for those that won’t. And if we are not, then there is something wrong with us.
I said awhile back that socialists don’t think like normal people and some of the whacked out proposals they have come up with heading into this year’s elections prove that. And when normal people look at some of the insanity they have planned for us and gripe about it, then they look down their long, convoluted noses at us and accuse us of racism, sexism, white privilege or whatever other charge they can throw at us because we refuse to support their damnfoolishness.
Socialism is a cancer on the body politic of this country and we won’t cure the problem by being “nice” to the socialists, who take our inoffensiveness as a sign of weakness. We need to start exposing them for who and what they really are–evil people, whose vision for America will end up destroying America. And what is worse, many of them, especially at leadership levels, know that.
