Why does Poor perpetuate Poor?
I have asked the question for many years, Why do the poor vote for Democrats? I have been given many answers.
1. They vote for the Democrats, because the democrats are for the poor.
A. That is very true, they are for the poor, they are for keeping them poor, and having them buy into the idea of government entitlement programs.
2. The republicans are for the rich.
A. That is also true, they want the rich to continue to make money, and they want the poor to become rich.
While I am not sure if either answer is correct, the information at the end of the blog would definitely point that way.
If anyone can find a poor person that has employees and creates businesses that create jobs, please let me know, but, I don't believe that there is such a thing. I have been horrified at the attempts to keep people from succeeding and from making, not only a name for themselves, but a life. I once heard it said that we think we are free because we can roam the boundaries of our country without persecution. While that is true, try to do it when you are poor. It is up to us to make the change in our culture to help everyone who wants to make a life for themselves, be able to without restriction of government, or entitlement programs. Abraham Lincoln said it best when he said.
"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."

It is time to bring balance back to our country, and states. It is time to stand up and stop being the silent majority, because the not so quiet minority is making all of the decisions
