RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND IF YOU LOVE AMERICA |
By Tom Gill
For those of you reading this that love America, raise you right hand. Good! Just as I thought, we all love America yet equally divided down the middle on our political preference.
Democratís claim Republicans only love rich people and are responsible for America being in such poor financial and moral decline. Well, guess what? All the problems in American can be laid at the feet of the Democrats, so say the republicans. Consequently, they talk over the head of each other instead of working through their differences.
This got me to thinking about who really and truly are to blame and why. The answer is quite simple; both parties are to blame and the reason is; instead of doing their jobs, they chase rabbits all day! Thatís right, name one politician who has actually caught a rabbit, and we come up short of a name. It just proves Elvis was right when he sang, ďYou aint nothing but a hound dog, barking all the time. You never caught a rabbit and you aint know friend of mine.Ē
Democrats and Republicans hate poverty and are trying to stamp it out, so they say. For example, the poverty rabbit has always been with us and gets bigger and fatter every year. Despite spending billions of dollars every single year to catch a few of the poverty rabbits, more and more of these critters are created, and the so called rabbit chasers, better known as Congressman, get richer and richer.
Maybe itís time for a few rule changes, better known as laws, are written. For starters, pass a law that says if you are physically and mentally capable of working, instead of a degrading handout like food stamps and welfare, the government will use those current funds to create productive jobs like those created in the thirties to help put America back to work.
Democrats and Republicans love a strong national defense and our troops. This rabbit grabs a super big slice of the pie when it comes to feeding this monster, but the majority of the funding goes to procurement programs that are no longer needed, or wanted by our military leaders. Thousands of military families have to use food stamps to feed their children, which is a disgrace.
A few days ago, the Defense Secretary announced some of the most drastic cuts in military spending, with all of the cuts come from the manpower side of the equation instead of cutting some of the defense contractor budgets.
Democrats and Republicans love children and women. Politicians have been chasing this rabbit since Roe vs. Wade in 1973. Both parties have had the opportunity to resolve this issue on numerous occasions, but failed to do so. They probably didnít really try all that hard because chasing the abortion rabbit ever year makes great headlines. No longer would there be a reason for pro life followers to call pro choice folks baby killers, and pro choice followers calling the other side women haters for taking away their right to choose.
As a Christian, I come down on the side of Pro Life, and feel it is our responsibility to protect and care for our children, born and unborn. Having said that, I donít feel pro choice people are evil devil worshippers. This is a moral issue between each person and their God, and will be decided by individuals, not government.
What is not right is for congress to appropriate funds for women to have abortions. As a former heavy cigarette smoker, I canít recall congress passing a law that said if I got lung cancer; the government would pay for my lung surgery.
Whatís good for the goose is also good for the goat or something like that!
