Sometimes I ask myself questions about why a massive segment of our government representatives is willing to depart from the fundamental basics on why and how a democratic republic like the United States can thrive.
Why do so many far-left politicians want to increase the welfare rolls? One of Obama’s first orders was to inflate the numbers of recipients on food stamps. In the first three years of his administration, food stamp hand-outs increased 70 percent. (See Washington Times report link): Food stamp president: Enrollment up 70 percent under Obama – Washington Times
Why are sanctuary cities protected by state and local governments, allowing undocumented immigrants – by the millions — not only an invitation to come and bring extended family, but to have access to all social and welfare benefits with the onus on the taxpayers?
Why do people of the far-left want to see open borders, permitting unrestrained new residents, most of whom will require sustenance from the government?
Why do some far-left politicians insist on allowing anyone to vote without having to prove basic eligibility, i.e., citizenry, with photo I.D.?
The answer, I believe, has little to do with compassion and anti-racism. Those are all terms invented to propel an agenda based on propaganda lies. Sadly, too many folks are inclined to believe them.
It’s all about power. Nothing else, but Power. It is all about getting elected and/or re-elected. It is a matter of farming for votes. Build that crop. Twenty years from now, those numbers will double, quadruple. The unregistered numbers that are allowed to vote, eligible or not, and who are generously supported by the American taxpayer, will all be voting Democrat because it is the greater source of entitlements.
It’s like fishing in the Atlantic. The best way to bring fish to your boat is by chumming. Send out the food and the lures, free, and they will come. Do the politicians honestly give a damn about the poor people? Some do, maybe. But most important is building the support base for political power.
Yes, the right wing also hunts for votes and they have their flaws, but the economic damage to the United States is at terrible risk based on these selfish motives of the far left. And yes, that’s my opinion.
Do I believe people like Governors Jerry Brown (San Francisco) and Rahm Emanuel (Chicago) really care about poor folks and illegal immigrants? Not a chance.
The link below is an excellent article published in the L.A. Times on January 14, titled “Why is Liberal California the Poverty Capitol of America?” It’s written by Kerry Jackson from the Pacific Research Institute. An eye-opener for all Americans, left wing or right wing. Please read. You will learn.
It was President Lyndon B. Johnson who said, in a 1964 private conversation aboard Air Force One, “I’ll have those n—ers voting Democrat for the next 200 years.” The remark was overheard by an Air Force One steward, later related to Ron Kessler, author of Inside the White House. (1995) Kessler is a respected journalist, former reporter for the Washington Post and author of twenty-one books.
