Who Counts?

If you are an average American worker, a vet, a homeless person, on Social Security, on Medicare, on Medicaid, a school child, a doctor, or a nurse; you don’t count  

Look at the question a different way.  Who can donate large sums of money to most Republican and some Democratic politicians?  Those are the people that count.

 

If all those people who don’t count (you and I) vote, will Republicans ever win an election?

Putting a finer point on it, allowing this virus to kill those in nursing homes, on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid (essentially the elderly, the poor and in need) will be great for one political party.  The Republicans have announced that this is their policy publicly and often.  The Republican Party has not denounced these policies.

Remember Wisconsin and how the Republicans tried to steal that election by endangering the lives of the citizens by making the citizens choose between voting and the virus.

Cats Out of the Bag!

For years Republicans have been whispering about and agreeing among themselves about the need for “culling the herd”.  They are now openly calling for it.

What does that phrase mean?  It means that we must get rid of those of our citizens who, even though they have contributed to our country all their lives  and even though they have fought for our nation, are no longer “working”.  These people are retired or ill.

What the Republican Party is advocating is to let the carona virus wash over these populations!  Let them die the horrible death of the carona virus.

Who do they want to let the virus kill?  These people they want culled are your parents, your grand parents, your spouses your children, your grand children.  Allowing this virus to cull these people will save money being used for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Meals on Wheels and feeding our starving children.

THIS IS HOW THE REPUBLICAN PARTY INTENDS TO BALANCE THE BUDGET ON THE BACKS OF YOUR FAMILIES.

THIS IS GENOCIDE!

THIS IS PATRICIDE!

THIS IS MATRICIDE!

Will you support these politicians?  If you do,  you share in the guilt!  Sorry, but that is the truth of the matter.  The choice is yours.

Should dumping milk be illegal?

Should starving the elderly be illegal?

Should funding the military to support bases outside the country be illegal ?

Should allowing businesses to not pay taxes be illegal?

Should allowing businesses to destroy the environment (the water we drink, the air we breath, our public lands)?

Should our health care be controlled by profit?

Should “land of the free” be “land of the wealthy”?

The President and The Republican Senators

Are either incompetent or hoping that this virus will kill off enough elderly so that Social Security and Medicare can be eliminated.  We, the people, are not as important as their political donors, corporations and wealthy friends.  This is the conservative Republican’s “Final Solution”.

Covid19

Lieutenant Governor Texas, Republican Dan Patrick, finally said aloud what the Republican right has long wanted. Solve budget problems created by their budgets by cutting social programs like Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. Eliminate Medicaid which will cause death of the poor. Eliminate Medicare causing the death of seniors which will in turn eliminate the need for Social Security. The Nazis has a name for it: THE FINAL SOLUTION.

The Better “Final Solution”

The “Final Solution” was the term used by the Third Reich under Hitler which was designated to be used for the extermination of the Jews.  The Jews needed to be exterminated as the “scapegoat” for Germany’s problems and the economic drain on German society.

The decreasing and eventual elimination of Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security and aid for veterans is the Republican Party’s “Final Solution” in the tradition of Ayn Rand.  The Republicans view the poor, sick, elderly and veterans as no longer having productive lives.  These other citizens, the Republicans believe, are the cause of the economic strain on society caused by the programs supporting them.  These other citizens paid for these programs with tax dollars from their years of work, service or, in the case of veterans, to their death for our country.

There is a “Final Solution” that would be beneficial to the Republicans and those they want dead and gone.  It would be a win, win solution.  They need to pass laws that make euthanasia legal for those who are terminally ill, economically not viable or have the desire to not be slowly starved to death medically or financially.

The tax dollars needed to support these “others” will be greatly decreased or no longer be wasted on programs like Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security or veterans.  Those tax dollars could be used to decrease the debt caused by the tax breaks on the wealthy and endless wars.

Is there less morality in allowing the suffering of these our citizens to continue while we blame them for the trillions of dollars in debt that continues to mount under this and past administrations?  Is it not the decent thing to allow them to free themselves with dignity from a  slow agonizing life and death?

A final solution, not by governmental economic starvation; but with human dignity would seem preferable.

Some would object to euthanasia on moral grounds.  Let their arguments be heard as long as they stop imposing THEIR “final solution” upon our fellow citizens.  Can they support one “final solution” and oppose the other “final solution” without hypocrisy?

Is euthanasia the better “final solution”?

Social Security’s Best Kept Secret

img_1558If you, your children, your parents or your grandparents receive the benefits of Social Security, you are a Socialist.

On August 14,1945, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act passed by Congress.  It was a social insurance program designed to pay retired workers age 65 or older a continuing income after retirement.  It also covers disability and survivors insurance.

It is an earned benefit. It was an insurance program where workers, through and with their employers, paid a premium to cover their expenses after retirement.  It was intended to be like modern day car, home, or health insurance.

Unfortunately Congress treats the fund as its own personal “petty cash”.

What is more unfortunate, bordering on criminal is that the cap on employer and the individuals contribution is $128,400.  That’s correct; if your income is $1,000,000 you will not be required to contribute to Social Security on $871,600 of your income.

And lastly is the fact that the security systems for our elderly, disabled and survivors exist no longer.  Children cannot or will not take care of their parents.  The state and churches are no longer taking full responsibility.  It is highly unlikely that they can or will be able to step up.

You’re a Socialist…

IF YOU, YOUR PARENTS, OR YOUR GRANDPARENTS…

  • receive Social Security,
  • are on Mediicare,
  • are on Medicaid,
  • went to public school or college,
  • drive on public highways,
  • have your house protected by a fire department,
  • are protected by the police,
  • drink safe water,
  • use a sewer system,
  • use safe medication,
  • eat safe food,
  • use a safe banking system,
  • believe in Christ,
  • etc.

YES, YOU ARE A SOCIALIST.  And, when the President or any other politician accuses anyone of being a Socialist, know that they are attacking you, your parents, your grandparents and your children.
