We Are Struggling
I’d like to see those presidents live on what we have to live on. Why do we have to struggle when they are not struggling?
They could give some of their money to some of us other people like senior citizens and other people who don’t have jobs. They could hand some of that money over to us.
But they don’t need it. They’re already millionaires. Let them share it with us. We need it. They don’t.
I’d like to know if I am the only one who feels this way because it kind of makes me mad to think we have to struggle when they are not struggling at all.
There are some weeks I don’t even have money for groceries. If it wouldn’t be for my little garden, I wouldn’t even have any grocery money.
The proper role of government is to restrain crime of every sort. The problem of government is that it becomes the perpetrator of the very crimes it is supposed to restrain, except on a massive scale. This is why the Founders established the Constitution. Its purpose is to restrain government, giving it limited, enumerated authority. The purpose of government is not to redistribute the private property of its citizens, or to provide a benefit to one class of citizen, at the expense of the rest. When this happens, all classes begin to demand special benefits using the police power of government to extract it from their fellow citizens until you have anarchy. ~ Our Republic (emphasis mine)
