The welfare state creates dependency and destroys initiative.

Here is a radio caller, a powerful interview with a welfare mom.

She believes it’s better to live off others than work.

  1. The welfare state exists for the most part due to the fact that ‘establishment’ democrat-socialists destroy America at light-speed, and the GOP which has been ‘infected like a cancer’ over the past century with ‘establishment’ constitutional-deconstructionists and global engineers, provides effective fake-opposition to Democrats. Case in point, is the existing ‘establishment’ GOP House Speaker and GOP Senate Majority Leader who deliberately fail to use congressional rules, and other forms of governance to oppose democrats – like Democrats use to oppose Republicans when they hold congressional majorities.

    Then there’s globalist Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, which hand-feeds us ‘establishment’ constitutional-schizophrenics like Charles Krauthammer, Carl Rove, Newt Gingrich, and the like. Stunning, is how many people believe Newt Gingrich is conservative when his voting record, and record of governance as House Speaker prove quite the contrary. Gingrich, who in is required reading list for incoming freshmen congressman when Gingrich was House Speaker, included Alvin Toffler’s writings. Writings ultimately consisting of repackaged ‘new ways of thinking’ updated to meet new technology and the global-governance system engineered by both ‘establishment’ Democrats and Republicans along with their European accomplices. Toffler’s writings are nothing short of a con-job selling ‘new world order’ globalist and anti-national sovereignty rationale by an author labeled as a ‘futurist.’ Moreover, when one investigates the highly destructive free-trade agreements sold two GOP voters by Gingrich, like NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT which are actually ‘managed-trade by a system of global governance’ and not ‘free-trade,’ it becomes apparent that Mr. Gingrich either has horrible judgment, or a global-engineer who intended to pass legislation functioning like the proverbial ‘floodgates opening’ allowing Americas manufacturing and production, and subsequently Americas middle-class, to flow out of America to competing and corrupt socialist nations. All of which, along with the governance of ‘establishment’ democrat-socialists, created our existing mass dependency on welfare.

    Bottom line, is that if Americans do not want to see America deconstructed further toward national-suicide Buy those who deliberately develop citizen dependency upon government, the pulpits of America will need to return to what they did pre-1900s by admonishing their flocks of their obligation to represent Christ in society and government to the exclusion of God offending world views and governance, and the GOP will need to be cleansed of the constitutional-schizophrenics and ‘new world order’ conservative-impostors infecting it like a cancer.

    And that means never trusting conservative or Christian rhetoric, and only using past voting records, other records of governance, and associations such as fraternal groups demanding loyalty at the expense of loyalty to America. Then, these indicators are to be held up to the only ‘measure of conservatism,’ which is ‘the original intent of Americas amended constitution,’ to determine the viability of a candidates electability, or governance if already in office.


      I made several ‘truth-claims’ in my above comment verifiable with evidence. If you have evidence to the contrary, I would welcome your evidence so I may change to ensure conformance to that which is true.

      I’m sure you will agree, that Christians must ‘follow the truth wherever it leads them’ – having no effective ‘sacred cows’ regarding political or church leadership. And among other things, ‘pursuit of truth to the glory of God’ requires that when the GOP functions as ‘the lesser of two evils’ compared to Democrats as a matter of a decades long pattern bringing lesser and different types of deconstruction, as opposed to occasional imperfection, Christians are biblically obligated to represent Christ in society and government to remedy such God offending and America destroying governance.

      Your intent aside, your response is typical of the post-1800s cultural-Marxism normalized by our society which personally attacks those with opposing views, while offering little evidence as a basis for disagreement – the affect of which can silence all views except for those attacking others.

      As for your mildly demeaning ‘cool-aid’ reference and additional sarcasm, it may have many assuming you have no evidence with which to engage in respectful dialogue. That said, being offended is a choice Christ never chose – I will follow Christ’s lead on that.

      Look forward to you providing verifiable evidence for your disagreement.

      May the Lord richly bless you brother.

  2. I thought the churches in America were suppose to take care of the poor and needy. Because I read the constitution and some of America’s founders writings when I was going through the process of becoming a citizen, I think the Democrat party is 99.9% against the Constitution, and the Republican Party no longer preserves the constitution like it used to, and is probably 90% unconstitutional.

    The problem is, even those saying they’re Christians and having conservative values when running for office do not honor the constitution once elected. America is in real trouble because there is no political party making sure government follows the constitution.

    Also, the above Exchange between Mike/John/Mike brought out some interesting issues – going to need to research some of those things. Going to research the “cultural Marxist” thing – but for sure, disagreement in America has become very disrespectful with more personal attacks then facts. “Being offended is a choice Christ never chose” is something I never considered, but it fits. Will try not to choose that anymore – easier said than done!

    1. Lorena: “I thought the churches in America were suppose to take care of the poor and needy.”

      First, congratulations to you, Lorena, on becoming an American citizen!

      Yes, the church does take care of the poor and needy. The church I attend has resources to do that.
      The tough part? Some people, as Craig pointed out, believe that they can make more by NOT working than by working.

      When our country was first settled by us, it was decided the community would share all the crops. Result: some chose not to work, knowing that they would be taken care of. Many of that first group died.
      In the next group, every family was given a plot of land to set up a house and to farm. Result: Everyone was working.

  3. Not one of us who “gives” her money wants to unlike the millions dollars she talks about. I don’t giver her her money willingly. She is technically stealing it from us.
