Republicans War On The Poor

us-gov-spening

This chart shows where all of the money is going. There would be plenty of money for Healthcare and to help the Poor if so much wasn’t being wasted on the military.

Most Republicans claim to be “Good Christians” and constantly site the bible to rationalize their every day actions, but are in fact Hypocrites by doing everything possible to take away assistance to the poor.

Matthew 25:40  says “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me”.

Matthew 25:31-46 says “For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.  I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’’

Cutting assistance to the poor is in direct opposition to Christ’s teachings.

Republicans has no problem spending trillions of dollars on the military and wars, but they want to cut programs like food stamps, medicare, social security, etc which benefits regular Americans and the poor.

As shown in the above graph, the United States spends more on the military than Russia, China, the UK and 11 more countries COMBINED.

Our troops are all over the world and that is wrong.   We should bring our troops home and use them for the DEFENSE of this country.  We have no business in the Mid East.

George Washington, in his Farewell Address stated why the United States should pursue a policy of isolationism:

“The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. Europe has a set of primary interests, which to us have none, or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves, by artificial ties, in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.”.

You don’t see ISIS attacking countries like Sweden because they mind their own business.  If we had minded our own business since WW II and not gotten involved in wars in View Nam, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc we wouldn’t be trillions of dollars in debt and have crumbling infrastructure.

A new study shows that despite the makers vs. takers rhetoric pushed by many Republicans, red states are the most dependent on the government.

As shown in this video, the United States has been spending 900 Million a week for the past 10 years in Afghanistan. Republicans has no problem spending trillions of dollars on the military, but they want to cut programs like food stamps, medicare, social security, etc which benefits regular Americans and the poor.

 

Republicans voted to cut 39 Billion Dollars from the Food Stamp program, but have no problem giving tax breaks to the wealthy.
