Good For America?

Earlier today I caught a brief moment of Bernie Sanders on TV giving a speech. I met Bernie a few times, nice guy, but I am afraid this country would not last six months with him in charge. Nobody likes pain and suffering, but it can’t be removed with legislation. Since the beginning of time, men were designed to get out of life what they put into it. Therefore it is vital that we are selective in what we choose as a career and that we are willing to invest enough to have a higher return.

Some jobs will NEVER pay a living wage, NEVER. Instead of demanding those jobs pay what skilled jobs pay, lets go back to having choices in our careers and the ability to rise to a higher level. It isn’t easy, but neither is flipping burgers. Bernie, if we have a minimum wage of $15, the cost of living will adjust to make that as though $15 is $8. Again, a better job opportunity is the answer. Also, Bernie, if you force employers to give women at least three months off with pay to have a child, don’t you think that gives men the advantage in the job market? Why should Joe’s Coffee House have to pay the Smiths to start a family just because Ms. Smith works at his counter? Who is going to pay Joe’s wife when it is her turn? To be fair, will we also pay the father to stay home for three months? Have we not survived for generations without this? If you really want a perfect society, seek the Lord with all your heart and become part of His.

I don’t normally like to discuss these things on my social media, but we are in a real mess. The Democrats have been taken over by socialist extremists, and the Republicans are under the control of progressive appeasers, and both parties have lost their moral compass. We need a big change in this country and we better all start talking about it, and had better not stay home on election day because we couldn’t find a ‘perfect’ candidate. Just look how far we have fallen in the last few years alone. Get ready, the decline is not over yet. 

We need sound policies to get this country back on track. Simply ‘feeling the pain’ of those who are struggling isn’t the answer. Pointing fingers at those who have found a way out of poverty and became successful isn’t the answer. Forcibly taking from the haves to give to the have nots isn’t the answer. If someone refuses to take responsibility for themselves, they have more problems than we can fix by slapping the hand of those who worked hard and reached the top. We must stop telling them that they are being held back buy the ‘rich’ and teach them that they too can become wealthy. 

We don’t need a socialist Superhero to lead us to Utopia; we simply need to get our country back to work and stop dividing the people.

Want to be blessed on your job? Use this biblical advice: Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.” (Colossians 3:23.24 NLT)
