I don’t want my taxes to pay for your health care and poor life/health choices. Everyone’s taxes will pay for any wars or violence your government engages in. You don’t have a choice in the matter. That is just an ignorant statement.
The prices of basic needs is determined by the marketplace, not government which will always make a bigger mess of things if it gets involved. Negotiate with your employer for the wages you want and need. Have skills that are in demand and needed. If you aren’t skilled in anything your wages and opportunities will be limited.
Your vote always counts. Cast your ballot in local elections as they often get ignored. Real change begins at the local levels of government. In the presidential election, the Electoral College ensures that your vote counts. Otherwise the major population centers would elect the president and the “fly over” part of the country would be ignored and unheard. This is how a Republic works we are not a democracy for good reasons.
Businesses are ran by people. And people will be involved in the regulatory and political processes. Over regulation is a burden and harmful to smaller businesses. Without input from the business sector some smaller business would be out of business or wouldn’t be able to be created in the first place. This would then increase the costs of goods and services and be ran by monopoly giants.
What is wealthy? Where is the line, at what measurement is being used? The term is relative in the extreme. The United States has the worlds wealthiest poor. But going off income and I’m not sure who is wealthy and who isn’t. But if we eliminated the Income Tax and implemented the Fair Tax this would solve the perceived problem as most see it. Everyone would pay their fair share.
Entering a country unlawfully is a crime. Age is not a factor, it is still a crime. To enter Mexico illegally can result in up to a 2 year felony prison term and up to 5,000 peso fine. Some other countries will imprison the illegal alien and sentence them to hard labor for decades. Even if the entry was accidental.
The United States is extremely negligent in it’s current immigration policy. In some cases not even enforcing the current immigration laws already in place. This is dangerous to our sovereignty as a nation and to our national security.
There are a number of ideas for granting the “Dreamers” and other illegal aliens citizenship. But it shouldn’t be free of consequences or easy. That isn’t fair or right to those who immigrated to the United States and waited years to get all the approvals to become a naturalized citizen.
Additionally if one comes to the United States waiving the banner of one’s homeland and shouting anti American slogans. These people should be denied access. I don’t waive the banners of my ancestor’s homelands. I don’t speak the languages of my ancestor’s homelands. I raise Old Glory and speak American English and so should any immigrant.
This meme is going around Facebook and other social media sites. What this shows is the wickedness of man, false gospel teachings, and just how far the Church has fallen.
The creators and propagators of this meme are attempting to compare Joseph and Mary’s journey to Bethlehem to that of the so-called Syrian “refugees”. Nothing could be further from the Truth.
First of all Joseph and Mary weren’t fleeing their homeland. As husband and wife, united as one flesh, they were returning to Joseph’s home town since he was a descendant of King David. Additionally everyone in the Roman Empire was doing the same. As Caesar had ordered a census and everyone went to their home town to be counted.
Joseph and Mary, along with others too, were not turned away by heartless people. When they reached Bethlehem, the town’s population had swelled greatly. They attempted to get a room at an inn but it was full.
Thus they bedded down in a stable where Jesus was born and placed in a manger. This was actually an act of kindness allowing the couple to stay in the stable instead of being on the streets.
It has already been proven and documented that those coming from Syria are mostly men of military age. Not families, not women and children. And many are Islamic Jihadists, criminals, and terrorists. One only needs to see the damage they have done already in Europe.
They have violated international law by not seeking asylum in the first bordering nation they entered. Instead they continue on to Europe and America. The goal to spread Jihad in the West to destroy Western Civilization, their stated enemy for more than 1000 years.
Social media is full of memes. Some of these are funny of course and they are meant to be that way. Most however are political in nature attempting to drive some point in some direction.
The memes produced and copied by the leftist are full of errors. Take this one for just one example.
I keep seeing the ending stanzas from the poem “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus which was written in 1883. Every American is familiar with the lines that read:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me
But this is not the beginning of the poem nor the compleat ending of it either. It is simply taken out of context like many things the Liberals do to “prove” their points.
These words do not appear anywhere on the Statue of Liberty. They are on a bronze plaque inside the greater monument. The poem itself was written as a fundraiser to raise funds needed to build the pedestal that the Statue of Liberty stand upon.
Even the Statue of Liberty was not build or designed as a symbol of immigration. It is a symbol of American Liberty shining out over the whole world. Lady Liberty is “Liberatas” the Roman goddess and she holds in one hand a torch lighting the way to liberty and freedom. And in the other she holds the Tablet of Law. At her feet rests broken chains. There is only One Law the is represented by breaking chains. That is the Law of God found in the Holy Scriptures of the Bible.
The Statue of Liberty was commissioned, designed, and built in France and was given to the American people by the French as a celebration of the American Independence. Please know your history before you go grabbing symbols that don’t mean what you think they mean.
