So, I get this "Re: Fw: Fwd: FW:" message sent straight to me via my Inter-Web-Electrical-Mail-Reading-Machine and forthwith conclude that this message must be of the uppermost urgency to be attended to immediately. After all, with all those exclamation marks it must be a life of death issue.
Oh, read on dear reader, you decide:
Actually, the amount of entitlement spending that goes to medicare, medicaid, social security, and other ponzi schemes, (that depend an increase of payments over time), far outstrip our foreign spending. By TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
To include religious organizations is a clear liberal foul, since conservatives VASTLY out-contribute in helping the poor via charitable contributions both locally and internationally. They give and give and give. Compare the tax returns from our elected officials and see that our current president, vp, and his liberal cabinet typically donate 2% - 4% to charity (and those are all liberal causes which ALSO receive government contributions).
Your 'government' can only take and take and take. What they dribble out isn't charitable, it bribery.
Add to that the fact that RICH or POOR, conservative Christians contribute between 10% to 30% and more after paying their taxes, which constitute all of the governments wasteful overspending.
THE VERY SAD FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT PRIVATE, CHRISTIAN, CONSERVATIVE, *GASP* TEA PARTY TYPES, ARE THE ONES WHO CARRY THE BULK OF CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS BOTH FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC.
What is worse, GOVERNMENT has caused ALL of these problems. Social Security was never, NEVER, intended to act as a retirement plan. But, once the mega corporations (fascist, government controlled) realized that they didn't need to pay pensions to the serfs, and that the government would see to that, they raided those pension plans.
You can't adopt American children for two reasons: First, ONE AND A QUARTER MILLION, 1,250,000 children are aborted yearly. That is TWO AND A QUARTER A SECOND!
In the time it took me to write this response, almost one thousand children were THROWN IN THE TRASH. Not one abortion was performed by a Christian.
And, you and I paid for each one of them.
Second, adoption regulations in the US are much stricter than adopting abroad. Most families try for years to adopt locally but are met with faceless government bureaucrats who prevent, delay, and frustrate the process.
And, you and I paid for that too.
Third, most 'mothers' are not willing to give up a child that will likely be raised in squalor and abuse for one simple reason: We will pay her to keep this ransom baby. She will get free food, free rent, free cable, and a wide variety of paramours willing to impregnate her repeatedly for more benefits.
The government should not be giving us ANYTHING, except for three things: 1. National Defense 2. Civil law & enforcement 3. A stable currency
All other benefits were meant to be private organizations and local government, to avoid what is happening right now; the bankrupting of our country.
My point is this: WE DON'T NEED MORE GOVERNMENT, WE NEED LESS.
WHAT WE DO NEED, AND SOON, IS A MASS REALIZATION THAT THERE IS A MORAL AUTHORITY -- NAMELY GOD -- WHO HAS BEEN IGNORED IN THE LAST DECLINING 100 YEARS.
Finally, what is the government? It is people. We are all people. Just, those people get paid twice as much as you or I do, to work half as much, and accomplish a mere fraction of what an intact family and community could.
Don't believe all that liberal - progressive bilge. Our problems lie in demanding from government more of what we already hate.
