“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is the servant to the lender.” Proverbs 22:7
Wisconsin - -(Ammoland.com)- It is too bitter to contemplate; but there are a majority of the people who are advocating for the preservation of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the rest of the Great Society “Safety Net.” Perhaps they are tired of getting shocked every time they “touch the third rail of politics.”
The point that must be made is that these systems, like all things socialist, are a perpetual debt that can never be paid.
Take a look at these examples:
· Public school funding comes from property taxes. You can never pay that bill off, as long as this is left in place. $5,000 a year in payments for a home you supposedly own. The City uses those taxes for it’s corrupt school system, as long as you advocate for public schools, you advocate for property taxes and perpetual debt.
· Social Security Insurance taxes come out of every check you make. What started out as 1% of your paycheck is now 6.2% and if not phased out will increase. There are people who never worked, who get “upgraded” from welfare to SSI, so they can receive more money per month. Some people pretend they are mentally ill, so they can, on purpose, collect a “crazy check.” Not only is this tax socialistic, it is un-biblical, “…for children ought not lay up for the parents, but parents for the children.” II Corinthians 12:14. Under SSI, all the children have to pay for all the “parents.”
· Medicare D was put in place under GW Bush. Subsidized prescriptions for the elderly. According to most studies, 80% of all prescriptions under this program aren’t for physical illness, but are psychiatric drugs. So we have to pay a perpetual debt for people who are high on Zoloft; Zannax, and Prozac. That couples neatly with the above mentioned SSI payments, because folks on “medicine” usually can’t hold down a job, because their ability to concentrate is gone. Medicare D has created a class of Geriatric Delinquents. Now we have Obama-care, with all its costs and corruption.
The examples I have cited aren’t just inner city people. When I was attending an EV Free Church, several of the elderly ladies in that Sunday Morning Bible study said they were on Methadone. Earlier than that, a lady at a Wednesday night Bible study gave a “testimony” that she was “blessed” by having her AFDC upgraded to SSI. She regularly states she “lives by faith and blessing, not works.” I would say she understands neither, but is content to badmouth the people who pay her way. What about these people? The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) will cut out all this nonsense; they will have to rely on private charity, not public taxation. The worst thing that will happen is that these adults will actually have to grow up.
Charity begins at home, and can also be found at your local church. Civil Government can only “redistribute wealth,” which is theft. The working man shouldn’t have a quarter off his check snatched from him. He shouldn’t have to rent his job from government, (Income Tax) so he can then pay rent on his home (Property Tax). CPoW means to end all federal direct taxation, and I would say eliminating every form of direct taxation is a laudable goal.
The people playing the system aren’t the first priority here. The people administering the system aren’t the first priority either. The first priority is the people who have to pay for all this nonsense in high taxes and high prices.
We agree with Thomas Jefferson who stated, “To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude.”
When the Government runs out of people’s money to steal, then it will begin rationing and liquidating. Or like European Nations, America will lose its independence. To answer Thomas Jefferson, CPoW promotes economy and liberty.
