Given the economy that the current President and his administration have bestowed upon our country, I understand why more than 49% of Americans are receiving some sort of governmental assistance. Add to this the fact that the unemployment rate that the administration broadcasts is a lie, and that most of the new jobs created during the “recovery” are low paying (according to, of all sources, The New York Times), I get it. Someone can receive more overall cash and benefits from being on the dole than working the register at Wendy’s. Fine.
But I know the majority of those people on the dole do not enjoy their current lot in life. They want a good paying job and their dignity back. Sure, there will always be those individuals who view living under the thumb of government assistance as an enjoyable preferred lifestyle choice, but this isn’t about those dopes.
Now some might think that the Democratic Party is swell because they support more and more of these “benefits” and they might dislike Republicans because they speculate that Republicans are itching to take these benefits away from them. The big lie that they believe is that the Democrats are for the “poor” and the Republicans and conservatives are for the “rich”.
Here’s the truth: Democrats are the party of the “rich” and frankly, they love it that people on the dole are under their control. Why? Because those folks will never be a competitor of theirs. They increase their chances of hanging on to power and getting even richer. The inability of those on governmental assistance to add themselves to the competitive talent pool makes that pool smaller.
In addition, Democrats prefer that more and more folks become dependent on governmental assistance because it ensures that they will not have to worry about being around these folks. They will never enter their realm or live in their neighborhood. They push the whole liberal “social justice” platform to keep themselves in power, garnering their riches from the rich taxpayers and inside information they glean from the Hill. They don’t care one whit about the poor. The more they remain in power, the richer they become and the more separated and isolated from their voters they become. And believe me, they like it that way.
Seriously, when do you think was the last time Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry or Harry Reid hung out or socialized with someone on the dole? How many of folks on welfare or food stamps hang out at their McMansion homes or are personal friends of theirs?
Think of all the big time Democrats out there “fighting” for them. I can’t even fathom how long a list can be made. When was the last time someone on the dole ever personally visited them? The fact is, they live in a different world and the nanny-state dependents are not welcome there unless they are trimming their hedgerows.
We on the Republican/Conservative side want those dependent on the government to be able to break away from governmental dependency, creating and enjoying their own wealth. We want them to pay lower taxes. We want them to keep what they’ve earned through their hard work, risks, education and investments. We do not want to “own” them or a large portion of their property. We want them to be FREE. We want them to be able to live in safe, nice neighborhoods.
But even more than the aforementioned, we believe in the individual. We believe they can become as wildly successful as they desire. We want them to. The Democratic party, however, knows that the chances of voting Democrat once they are an economic success is lowered because they will know that it would be against their own interests due to the Democrats always wanting to take more and more of their property and earnings so they can redistribute it to “their” voters.
We know that corporations are taking jobs overseas because of the horrendous US Corporate Tax Rate being the highest in the developed world. We know that small businesses, which create upwards to 70% of newer, high paying jobs), have a hard time operating due to onerous regulations and high taxes. We know that big corporations are keeping billions of dollars of foreign made profits overseas because bringing it here subjects that capital to approximately 40% tax rates. All this lost capital not being injected into our economy, coupled with high taxes and oppressive regulation, is why we currently suck at creating high-paying jobs here in this Republic.
And we, Conservative Republicans, will change this once we take the White House and keep control of the Congress. We will lower the corporate tax rate for businesses with an emphasis on small businesses. We will make the United States THE place to do business in, not overseas. We will create an environment in which high paying jobs can thrive and give back to those on the dole their God-given right to “the pursuit of happiness” instead of being a slave to the government.
Vote Conservative /Republican in 2016.
NOTE: When I say “on the dole”, I am simply referring to the following definition: “receiving financial assistance from a governmental agency”.
