Paying for Poverty - The American Way

Politicians like Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi have never stood for the American people. These three, plus countless other career politicians, seek only the votes in the next election. They all think they will last forever.

Their problem is that sooner or later the American voters, liberal, conservative or moderate, will finally get the message. Clinton and company care only about themselves and how to make a buck off voters. These Liberal minded politicians want to dole out taxpayer money to get re-elected…not just once but over and over again.

You may ask “How do they use taxpayer money for votes?” If your tax money goes to entitlements for those not worthy of help and these politicians give out those funds…aren’t they campaigning with you tax dollar?

But some declare that we are a generous nation. Our hearts, and our pockets, are there to help the less fortunate. I agree…we should help those in need. We should help the U.S. citizen who can’t feed their kids or live in decent housing. Unfortunately, a lot of that aid goes to illegal or lazy people, who want us to keep them feed and housed.

I know of people who received Christmas gifts for their kids and thanked the benefactors while sitting at their doorstep downing a quart beer and smoking cigarettes. I heard of people buying choice meats with their food stamps or benefit cards and then turn around and selling the same for smokes and booze. There is too much fraud in the entitlement system fathered by Lyndon B. Johnson!

Is there an answer to this fraud and waste dilemma? Possibly there is, but it must multi-pronged. We should vote for candidates that won’t put layer upon layer of “deadbeats” on the welfare payroll. We should protect our borders to keep welfare and anchor aliens out or limit their arrival. We should better account for the entitlement systems already in place. Where is the money going? Who gets the assistance? Do they actually need the assistance?

Many years ago, I was in such a dire situation. We had three kids and I was out of a job. With the help of my wife and her family we made it through. I worked for the USAF for over 30 years and retired comfortably. It took family, NOT Big Government or a Greedy Church, to see my family through. So where are all those politicians and religious charities when you need them? Family and hard work saved the day!
