Social Engineering by the left
Perhaps as my wife says, "I think too much". She is most likely correct, but I try to understand every situation and individual I deal with before I act of form an opinion. I've been trying to understand why so many on social assistance programs remain there most of their lives. So, as I often do, tried to see life from their perspective. I, mentally, placed myself in a situation where I had never had a parent who held a steady job. A life of living in public housing receiving health care in public clinics. Living in areas where everyone around you had the same life experiences as you. A place where everyone was accustom to monthly visits by people from the government wearing suites and carrying briefcases. The suits would come to see that you were following the rules. Rules that dictated your husband or father was not allowed to be anywhere close or you would be put out on the street. Rules that made it a crime if you had more than the masters thought you should. Rules which, by their very nature, created an atmosphere where there was only gray and crime would fester because of their infectious social engineering.
I soon abandoned my effort to place myself in that mental state. I got the picture. If you are unfortunate enough to be a victim of the welfare scam you are no more than a prisoner. It is what it is, Because you have been limited in every way by the fear of being without shelter or food you have become a prisoner. You are robbed of your dignity, if you ever had been allowed any in the first place. You individual identity is no more than a million others around you, no one cares "who" you are you are just a case number to them. And when you became a "case number" you became property of the federal government. Therein lies your identity, a number, 1, 2, 3, 4, and so on into the millions. All the little numbers printed on page, packed in boxes neatly stacked in an office so some bureaucrat can justify the bloated salary he never earns before he goes home in his fine car to his beautiful home, far away from the squalor you call home. And all the while there you are, despised by the people who's taxes pay for the programs you have come to despise. You have come to despise the programs because you know there is a better life. If only those who pay for the programs knew how much you wanted free of it all. If they only knew how much you would appreciate an opportunity over handouts, that you welcome the chance to try and maybe succeed or maybe fail and try again.
As I said in the beginning, I am a conservative, I am right wing. However I am not Democrat or Republican nor am I Libertarian. I am simply a conservative and as such I firmly believe in individual responsibility. Rugged individualism, that makes a man free, truly free. With it he is his own and no one holds any part of him, he knows respect, dignity and Honor. Social programs have robbed many millions of Americans of knowing this, the greatest way to live and the only way to know true Freedom. Those caught up in these social schemes are told if they do not vote for the left, Liberals, Democrats and Progressives they will automatically be put out on the street. This is a lie that keeps the fear in place and condemns those imprisoned by these programs exactly where the left wants them, without any opportunity to get out of that prison.
This is the naked truth, I only hope for once in our history we can stop the vicious circle set in motion by Liberals and progressives many years ago. If those on these programs will at least consider what is presented here we might just see opportunity for all at last.
