Let me start off with this, being that this blog is still in the “getting to know you” stage. I am not a highly educated man. I am a high school graduate with a few college courses under my belt. I am not a political wiz, and do not live and breathe the news and the polls and the rhetoric that is spinning around us constantly. Yet I do make a deliberate attempt to remain informed, which is much more than a lot of people do these days. Ignorant, careless, uninformed people surround me at all times, and it literally makes me sick. I just can’t comprehend how people can go though their lives day in and day out without having the slightest clue about what is going on in the world around them- especially the happenings of their own country and government, especially in a time of war. Now this has nothing to do with polititcal party, although I do have a theory that the less informed a person is, the more likely they will vote for a Democrat, but that is a blog for another day.
(NOTE: Just because I despise Liberal Democrats and what they are attepting to do to our country DO NOT make the mistake of assuming I am blindly following the Republicans either- for they have plenty of bone-head ideas I despise as well. I do lean conservative on most issues, but not all. I THINK FOR MYSELF, THANK YOU!)
That being said, I was very lucky to have two wonderful parents and a strong, healthy family. I was instilled with certain faith-based morals and values as well as a very strong work ethic. I actually chose not to go to college after high school, and although I sometimes look back and wonder “what if”, I don’t regret that decision. I have been gainfully employed since I was 15 years old. I started working part-time after school and at the age of 18 went to full time. I was not skilled, yet I got a job and worked hard and learned a business and moved up and carved out a nice little place in this world for myself and my family.
So what’s my point? I’m getting there- be patient…
I want to talk about differences, in an effort to make clearer where I stand and why, as well as to explain my contempt for the Liberals in these-here fine United States. First lets talk about the difference between Government and Charity. Government exists to govern. Charity exists to help people. How on earth did anyone ever confuse the two? And now, I keep hearing talk of this INSANE idea of “FREE” National Healthcare. Are these people out of their minds? This country is being pushed toward a socialist mentality that, if not stopped, is destined to be the ruin of our economy- not to mention diminishing our freedom and overall quality of life. This is America, and although all citizens should be encouraged to be charitable towards their fellow Americans, the government has no right to force them to. I could go on and on about this one, and someday I will, but for now let me wrap it up so I can move on- Government should not be in the business of charity. Not only the big two (Wellfare and Unemployment) but all social programs should be CUT, CUT, CUT if not elliminated entirely. This is where the Bird Feeder Theory applies. If you put out a bird feeder, birds will show up. If you take the bird feeder away, the birds will not starve, they will make their own way. I often think that if all these bleeding heart liberals (who can’t wait to get their hands on my tax dollars to give to someone else who they’ve decided needs it more than me) were to focus their time, energy and money into a charity such as a soup kitchen or the Red Cross or the Salvation Army, the world would be a much better place. But what do I know? I’m just a dumb, hard working, insured taxpayer.
Another difference I would like to talk about is the difference between people who obey the law, and people who don’t. People who don’t obey the law are breaking the law. People who break the law are called criminals. I was always taught growing up to respect and obey the law, for it is what keeps us safe and maintains order. I also learned, if you break the law, you must suffer the consequences. This applies not only to you and me and Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, but also to all the illegal aliens that are invading our country. They came here illegally, they obtained fake documents illegally, thay are employed illegally. They are criminals. If I break the law, I must pay a fine, or go to court or go to jail, or whatever the law says I have to do depending on which law I’ve broken. Why the hell would anyone even consider giving illegal aliens (CRIMINALS) special consideration that I wouldn’t get even if I were to get caught sending a text message while driving? And why on earth should any of our(American Citizens) tax dollars be spent to help feed or clothe or educate or give medical treatment to any of these criminals? This to me is a no-brainer folks. Here again we may apply the Bird Feeder Theory. I say take the bird feeder away- fast and hard. Give them NOTHING. Make it IMPOSSIBLE for them to get a job. Give them NO INCENTIVE to come here or stay here. They are criminals. If they didn’t respect our laws to come here and drive here and work here, what the hell makes anyone think they will start respecting them anytime soon?
So there you have my rant for today. Just blowing off some steam on some “same old” issues that get my blood boiling. Feel free to comment and tell me what a monster I am or how Dick Cheney is brainwashing me or whatever.
