The rhetoric of the Left during the President Reagan years is back. Today the Left fills the news airwaves with new, “Talking Points”. During the Reaganomics years, the primary talking points of the Left used the term, “trickle down economics.” Of course, the Left was wrong, because Reaganomics gave us great economic growth and stability through the President Clinton years. Now, the new slogans used include the terms, “No more trickledown economics, but Middle Out economics.” This is supposed to refer to economics that originate with the middle class and moving out into the marketplace benefiting everyone.
You really do not need an economic degree to see that does not work. The Left whines about billionaires and millionaires getting the tax breaks from what conservatives propose. What they fail to mention, is that the group of people conservatives want to protect and empower are the Small Business people, and the Self-Employed. These two groups of business people are responsible for a large majority of the business world in America. These are also the group affected the most with tax increases, regulations, and OBAMACARE. The Top 1% of income earners has the least amount of effect on the economy, and yet pays a large sum of the taxes collected every year.
The Left’s professional pundits and “Pot Stirrers” want their voting base to concentrate on anyone that generates wealth. According to them, such people are evil and want to keep the poor oppressed. However, their argument fails with the Independents who are the swing vote. They know that such an argument is ridicules and not worth a second thought. That begs the question, why do they keep up the same old attack, arguments and talking points? I believe they only want to “Stir the Pot” of their voter base hoping they will be motivated to get out and vote on Election Day.
The reality of the Free Market Economy is simple. Let the market drive itself, get out the way with overt regulations, and allow the market to correct itself and weed out the greedy, the Swindler, and the fraud. More people are hired, creating more taxpayers, producing more revenue into the Federal and State coffers. That enables American business to do what they do best, and the economy takes care of itself. Creating government jobs and “stimulating” the economy has never had long-term effects.
The Left has a serious problem ever admitting they are wrong and have made bad decisions. They have equally hard time admitting that any of their plans have failed and caused great national harm. For example; The Left will never admit that their strangle hold on American business has been the reason American business, especially manufacturing, has been moved to other countries. Any of these business people will tell you that staying here would have meant bankruptcy and the business closure. It is not because of greed, it is because of survival. In reality, the Left is directly responsible for driving American jobs away and into the economies of other countries. Remember the definition of insanity?
The faster we get these socialist loving people out of our government the sooner our country can recover, if it’s not too late.
I have known several “pot stirrers” in my life. People who get great joy out of watching people enraged because their “buttons” were pushed. One such man I know does this just to see what kind of reaction he is going to get. Sometimes for fun, other times from a motivation of extreme dislike for the person. He never considers what will happen if the pot he’s stirring overflows.
Recently the news has been filled with story’s of people, especially young people, who have been so harassed (their pot stirred) that when their pot overflows, death is the result. They either take their own life, or the life, or life’s, of others. Spouses pots overflowing and people get hurt, and sometimes those pots overflow over the children. I know you grieve like I do when you hear those reports. How often is the “pot-stirrer” arrested, tried and convicted?
When it comes to the professional “pot stirrers” I am convinced their stirring is with a deliberate conscious knowing what will happen when the pot overflows. I am also convinced that they stir that pot just to get the desired result. They know that pot so well, have seasoned it just so, filled it with just to right ingredients and set the flame exactly where they want it to get the result they’ve deliberately planned. Yes, they know exactly what will happen when the pot over flows. That is what they wanted from the beginning of putting that pot on the fire.
Over the years there have been people who have stepped in and removed the pot from the fire, thus removing the results of the overflow. Hatred was replaced by peace, understanding replaced discontent and fear was replaced with faith. Where are the Peacemakers of our time? Who will step forward and remove the smoldering pots from the fires?
When you consider the many pots boiling now, finding a Peacemaker with the courage to approach those pots is one thing, but to have the strength of character to actually remove the pots will need incredible faith in God. One thing is for sure, that person will not be someone who talks the issue to death, which is what we have now. All the talk has produced is more wood on the fires, more stirring of the pots, a higher boil of the ingredients and pushing the contents to a quicker overflow.
I know that there is only one way to produce that Peacemaker. God must raise that person up. The Bible does teach us that the Anti-Christ will be such a person. I don’t plan to be here if that’s who it will be. I’ll be with Jesus. However, I will still pray that God raises up His Peacemaker before Jesus return. I’d sure like to see peace in my time. How about you?
I hope that none of you suffer with depression. I have since 1995. Yes, this supposed man of faith has suffered greatly with depression. The whys are not important, but the suffering is important. As a result of my NOT handling depression properly, acting like I was some kind of strong man, arrogantly putting on a front of composure and faith. All the time I was suffering, even to the constant thought of death.
I had no one to turn to, no money to seek professional help and those that had the ability to help thought it better to judge me saying things like, “You should already know what to do. You have the answers. Stop felling sorry for yourself.” etc, etc, etc.. To all the people I likewise judged and condemned, I repent and in the Name of Jesus, I pray you forgive me.
Depression is real. Praise God I have help know through the V.A.. I have the right people to talk to, listening ears without judgement, and the medication that is lifting my spirits. God is faithful Who has promised.
For you that are suffering I urge you to get the help available right away. Don’t try to fight this alone. Make sure the people you find will help you without judgement and will keep your conversations confidential. You who are Veterans, the V.A. is a wonderful place to find all sort of help. Get there right away and get the process of registering underway.
To all my Christian friends I repent. God is more than enough. Knowing that is great, but learning how to listen to the Holy Spirit when He tries to tell you what to do, DON’T REFUSE TO OBEY. SWALLOW THAT STUPID PRIDE, HUMBLE YOURSELF AND SUBMIT YOURSELF UNDER HIS MIGHTY HAND.
I really hope this helps. I really do.
