Thursday, November 28, 2013 - Something to think about this Thanksgiving:

I get e-mail updates from the left because I like to know what the other side is up to, most of it is pretty nauseating, but I still keep up with WH public communications. This was in my inbox this morning.


After extolling the virtues of food stamps, the last paragraph blames Republicans for attempting to cut SNAP. I'm reminded of two things this Thanksgiving, the truism "give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime." SNAP is nothing more than Welfare 2.0, and the Obama administration has been recruiting people to sign up. Literally attempting to bankrupt our socialist system. "70% since 2008 to a record 47.8 million as of December 2012" as discussed in this [url=]WSJ article[/url].

The second thing that comes to mind, are the reports of abuses in the SNAP program, as discussed in this [url=]Freedom Works blog post[/url]. While the left claims waste, fraud, and abuse in the program is a "myth".

I'm all for helping the poor, I just don't feel our government has the responsibility to do it. When did we lose sight of the principles enshrined in the preamble of the Declaration of Independence,

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Indeed, the mid-term elections are critical to the end of countering the destructive socialist policies of the left, by electing Tea Party conservatives to office, and those who will uphold the Constitution of these United States. Amen and God bless!

Happy Thankgiving! - Something to think about this Thanksgiving::
