Constitutional Emergency

If you don't read all this you will waste your time.

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.

We all seem to be thinking too much lately Art. But we must. This country needs more thinkers and doers as never before. Your post is right on target!

So True and by the way, very well written....that is precisely why I have determined for my family and I to live free from the government intervention, so I don't have to live with the Lie.

Agreed.  In Boston's Chinatown many years ago, the Combat Zone "smut alley" was encroaching on China Town, went on for years, until prostitutues walked the streets, drug dealers threatened kids enroute to school.  Finally, China Town had enough, the mothers came out with umbrellas and bats, and started chasing the whores, the thugs from there streets.  These brave people took back their neighborhood and shut down the Combat Zone.  It can be done...when brave people take back their lives.

Good one Art.

Comment by Alfie Hardin on March 4, 2012 at 11:50pm

You missed one key point, Art ... there are those who had opportunities, but failed to take them. 

 

My question to you would be, now that you have thought all of this through - are you any better off?  Do you feel it was your responsibility to seek a better understanding?  Has your better understanding led you to act to solve the problems?  Are these problems, after all, your responsibility?   Misplaced compassion or empathy can be just as futile as misplaced trust or faith.  .  All the 'understanding' in the world is not going to solve the inherent cultural problems.  In the end, the only resolution to such problems must come from within the black culture, for social engineering from outsiders would be rejected - or resented - for all time.

Alfie,
I am an American citizen, as such, whatever problems my country faces are my problems and yours and every citizens. I do not know anyone who hasn't failed at one time or another. I hope you will stop for a moment reread your comment, there are as many "whites" on welfare as any other race. I honestly regret having to point that out but I don't readers to believe otherwise because many would take your word for it and never verify. As far as my faith being misplaced, it's like this, America is my home, I believe in America and Americans, when I no longer can, we will not be discussing anything and blood will be running in the streets. Yes, I am better off having thought this through rather than simply creating an all encompasing sterotype for every person involved. I am painfully aware that there are those in these programs who are simply nothing but deadbeats and cheats, however, I find that type in every walk of life and at every socioeconomic level they just have different names for them. All in all I am trying to be a part of the solution and not simply bat old prejudices around. I hope this answers your question.

Art, well written post. I have held the belief for a long time that if the programs you spoke of were changed only slightly so that people were not cut off from them for getting a job and allowed the time to actually improve their position we would see many work their way out of them. If those people were allowed to continue on the assistance programs at a slightly reduced amount for a length of time so that they could actually live a better life...Looking at the system as it is now I have to ask why would anyone try to get a job and work their way out of it when it causes them to lose income and assistance in any form, lowering their standard of living even further.

  Isn't It Ironic?

The SNAP/Food   Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps   ever.
Meanwhile, the   National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior,   asks us to "Please Do Not Feed The Animals." This is because the animals may   grow dependent on handouts and not learn to take care of   themselves.
Thus endeth   today’s   lesson.

My Dad used to say "you are where you choose to be". Think about that. We all have a free will to make changes to our life IF we choose it. I came to this country in the early 60's, as a young adult who spoke no English and had nothing except the clothes on my back. I finished high school, got an MBA (all without government help) and went on to a middle management position.

America is the greatest country in the world with all the opportunities anyone can possibly want. It is up to the individual to make their own choices.

With all due respect, Mr. Phillips, your thinking, as expressed in this piece, would seem to justify the status quo rather than condemn it.  Any person with even a minimal understanding of the dangers inherent in a program of government sponsored welfare knows that such programs result not only in an enervated segment of society, but at the same time create a hierarchy of administrators and workers whose main purpose, all too often, is to maintain their authority all the while characterizing themselves as the saviors of the "underprivileged".  It is the bounden duty of every individual to see his or her situation as it truly is and to take the necessary steps to make the necessary corrections to their own life course, regardless of what their parents or peer group have, or have not, done.  That's the premise the Founders operated on when they constructed our Constitution and what America has always been about.  Anything less smacks of a lack of personal responsibility, a chracteristic which, in our Country today, has reached epidemic proportions as a result of rationalizing by those involved in the game and complicit politicians.  To quote Edie Faylor's Dad, "you are where you choose to be."   There are certainly responsible individuals who find themselves in dire straits and who are in need due to no fault of their own.  It has always been the American way to help them, but that class of people are not the one's who are creating the problems we face.   A hierarchy intent on its own security which panders to a subservient group not interested in personal responsibility and which looks to others, the government, to assume that responsibility as one of their "rights" is what we face in our Country today.  Those who, for whatever reason, will not make the effort to effectively address their own problems have no "right" to expect the rest of us to do so for them even if those who pander to them protest that we should.  It may sound harsh, but the truth is that's the pervue of Churches and other benevolent organizations, not the government.
