Ok, straight up honest question: Would you prefer a government check or a job? #fb
The way you answer that question will determine who you are more likely to vote for. But by preferring a government check–then you're advocating stealing from the mouths of my children.
I'm a compassionate human being and my company, family and employees have fed more than 200 Orphans for the next year in our personal charitable giving this year.
But to expect me to underwrite your Nike sneakers, your iPhone 5, and your Food Stamps (EBT Card) while I'm doing all I can to pay my bills and be responsible for the three sons, bride, dog and cat we have — is immoral.
Expecting me to pay for your lung cancer treatment because you smoked a pack a day for 47 years, while the Lovely Bride made us healthy dinners–infringes on my ability to put food on my own table.
Forcing me to pay for your drug benefit for your insulin, because you eat Big Macs every day, you don't exercise and you got Type 2 Diabetes, is unpatriotic.
Get THINE OWN house in order, and if you need help turn to people who can hold you accountable–to be responsible for and with the help they lend you.
But stop telling me how and why I should be manipulated by putting a gun to my head to turn over earnings to you that I earned because my one month old baby needs to eat.
Because… If you tell me I have to… I won't!
If you allow me to want to… I usually will.
This is why liberals aren't really compassionate at all. They preach sermons from their own new shiny iPad 2s, about how everyone else around them should give sacrificially, all while living off the generosity of people around them. Go build a business. Pay your way. The Apostle Paul sewed tents so that he could preach the gospel… Would you even be willing to, if you had to make it a calling, and not a vocation?
It's a "do as I say" if I decide that you're too successful, trip wire that just send me into orbit.
Let me see your real need. Eat out of your pantry and fridge if you're running low on funds. Stop buying stuff you don't need and give to those in need. Yep – that's what I said… When you don't have much, give anyway. I know it doesn't make sense to you, but God excels at that.
Save as much as you budget. And invest for your children's long term futures.
If your paycheck is spent before it's cashed–then you're the problem.
But you're not my problem.
I've got a houseful of mouths to feed, a payroll to make, and a company to grow so that I can leave something for those who come behind me.
And of course always more truly unfortunate people to help… children who have no mommies or daddies!
