Many of you know that I'm a member of cafemom and I love love love it!!! It has been a tremendous help to me especially when I struggled so much with depression last year, or the last 18 months or so. BUT, I also have to be careful because the negative influence from cafemom can get to be a bit overwhelming sometimes. You can chose to interact with all different kinds of people and really get into their minds with some of the things they "say" there.
So, I made a mistake today. I posted a "question" about the Democrats and Joe Biden and how he feels that it is "patriotic" for the rich to be taxed higher and it is "fair" to tax them at a higher rate and give that money to the "poor" simply because they are "struggling". While that all sounds good and fine, it isn't Biblical at all!!! At least it isn't Biblical for the government to be TAKING the money and then redistributing the wealth. Anyway, I was so disheartened by how many moms out there are not only okay with that, but agree that it SHOULD happen. I'm so sad.
I don't care how "poor" I get in the eyes of this world, I don't WANT those who make more money than I to have to support me. What happened to working hard for a fair wage? What happened to being content with what you have? What happened to the "rich" giving of themselves to the "poor" simply because it is the right thing to do? I know. It sounds like a Utopian society but if the "rich" aren't willing to do those things on their own, they should NOT be robbed!!! Not by me or the federal government!!
It is no wonder Obama/Biden have so much support when they are holding out fists full of dollars toward a people who have no character or scruples whatsoever outside of thinking about themselves. This is not the America that my WWII veteran grandfather fought and bled for! This is not the America that my uncle gave his entire career for. This is an ugly America who has lost sight of what made her great to begin with - God, hard work, and personal integrity. I'm so saddened for the future of our country. She will collapse some day. And yet, I love her.
