Democrats continue to push the nonsense that people don’t actually have a responsibility to grow up and to be self-sufficient members of society. And they also are none too shy about telling anyone willing to listen that the government is there to assist anyone who would simply rather not take part in all that is required for one to become a fully functioning adult. And that the Democrat Party stands at the ready to make all of those pesky decisions that are always necessary as one goes through life.
Which brings me to one of the many Democrats now vying to be the one who will take on President Trump in 2020, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren. You see, it was during something called the “She The People Presidential Forum” in Houston, Texas on Tuesday that Warren said that people should remember that federal government regulation is what ultimately will make the difference in their economic status. So apparently a willingness to work hard would have absolutely nothing to do with it?
Anyway, Warren attempted to make her idiotic point by telling a ‘story’ about how her mother went to work at a minimum wage job after her father had a heart attack that prevented him from working. And it was then, she said, that she learned about “government and how no matter how hard you work, the rules that are made by the people in government will still make the big difference in your life.” But what she conveniently leaves out is the fact that that big difference is usually for the worse.
She went on to say, “Because when I was a girl, a full time minimum wage job in America would support a family of three—it would pay a mortgage, it would cover the utilities, and it would cover food.” And she said, “Today a minimum wage job in America will not keep a momma and a baby out of poverty.” Now I find it pretty hard to believe that being able to feed your average sized family and pay the mortgage was actually possible with the minimum wage, even back then. It’s simply not true.
And so just what is this group that calls itself “She The People?” Well, according to their website, it refers to itself as “a national network connecting women of color to transform our democracy. We are elevating and amplifying the voice and power of women of color as leaders, political strategists, organizers, and voters. She the People is building an inclusive, multiracial coalition driving a new progressive political and cultural era.” Sounds like another front group for the Democrat Party to me.
So while I’m not sure exactly what year it was that this little scenario of hers came to play out, but the minimum wage back in 1970 was $1.60. And I’m pretty sure anyone who was being paid that amount could not have afforded a mortgage along with a family. So I think what have here, once again, is yet another lying Democrat who’s doing little more than blowing a little smoke in what is a continuing effort to con people into believing that the system is somehow stacked against them.
And something else this moron leaves out of her idiotic little story is how upping the minimum wage will accomplish nothing more than to put more people out of work just as it has nearly everywhere it has been implemented, at least the much sought after $15 minimum wage. And apparently such unintended consequences are of little importance to Warren, it’s only the rhetoric that’s truly important. While her little family story may be touching, it is, much like her, completely meaningless.
It is the bureaucracy that this woman and her fellow Democrats seem to have so much love for, and that they continue to work hard at making grow, that is really nothing more than the poison that is slowly killing this country. And that is why I both fear and loathe them. They consider the fact that I have little need for them that they see me, and the millions like me as being a threat to their power. I don’t agree with their ‘values’ that includes abortion, open borders and bogus ‘climate change.’
And let me tell you, it’s going to take a whole lot more than a few sob stories such as the one heard from Warren to change my mind and to want the government more involved in my life. For one thing the price is just a little too high. They want control of my life and I’m not willing to hand that over to them. They are already able to control my much of my life and I’m not about to grant them any more. I’ll just continue to trust in God and a do what I need to do on my own.
Demagoguery is the way Democrats do business, and it’s defined as political activity or practices that seek support by appealing to the desires and prejudices of ordinary people rather than by using rational argument. The Democrats love to claim that without their help we would all be doomed to poverty. And yet what is it that they tend to do that makes it any easier for those living in poverty, to escape it? Nothing! They work to make it nearly impossible for a ‘poor’ person to break out of poverty.
And there is really nothing that proves that any better than the Democrats’ continuing call to increase the minimum wage. Because it’s in the long run that this little scheme actually results in nothing more than to cause more people to lose their job and force them onto some sort of government program and therefore more likely to vote Democrat in the attempt to maintain their ability to remain dependent on the government to take care of them. No one should EVER listen to Democrats!
Whether on purpose or because they truly are that stupid, Democrats always seem to be totally oblivious to those pesky little things known as unintended consequences. And they always claim to have no responsibility whenever they occur. It’s reminds me a little of following one of those big dump-trucks, loaded with gravel, down the highway that has, in bright white letters, across its tailgate, “NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BROKEN WINDSHIELDS.” Democrats are the party of broken windshields.
