You Hate “Poor People” If You Want them to be Financially Independent


So it’s time for me to be accused of “hating poor people.” Every time anyone speaks out about changing current practices, the liberals whine that we hate people. I don’t hate people, but I sure hate a government that “trains” people to become dependent. So why do liberals and Democrats scream that we hate poor people every time we start talking about getting away from government dependence?

It’s not because they are concerned about the poor – it’s because it threatens THEIR political futures. They have to attack the messenger in order to get dependent people and independent thinkers from listening to our words because it might make them actually THINK and they may actually realize who is really making their lives hard.

Many people, myself included, have needed help at one time or another in their lives to make it through financially. Several years ago, this kind of help was temporary, to make it through a rough time. Help was never intended to be full-time income. Somehow that has changed.

Our government has manipulated and bullied Americans into more and more taxes in order to “help” people. Most people give to their favorite charity but that’s not good enough for our government because they need Americans to be dependent in order to assure their own continued re-election. In my opinion, that’s the two choices of why this has happened – either we blame the poor for adopting the entitlement attitude or we blame government for deliberating training people to be dependent.

My vote goes to blaming the government. People simply respond in a way that best provides for their needs. And I believe our government knows, understands, and deliberately uses that in order to train people so that the politicians can meet their own selfish desires. “Poor” people are simply pawns in their game.
