Poor Democrats, Why

What is the reason the Democratic party is the party of the poor? The top ten states that spend the most on welfare are mostly Democratic states: Massachusetts, Vermont, Minnesota, New Mexico, Delaware, Maine, Oregon and Kentucky. Only Kentucky voted for Trump in the last presidential election. Why are these states Democratic?

I suspect Democratic states are the states that most want illegal aliens allowed into our country. The reasons for this are many; however, people without jobs tend to vote Democrat. They look at Democrats as their savior. Therefore, the big push to get illegal aliens into the United States is based on the fact that once they are on our welfare rolls, they can become voters.

Democratic voters must look at this carefully. Currently all the Democratic presidential hopefuls are promising drivers’ licenses, free healthcare, free housing and numerous other perks the illegals will receive just by sneaking into our country. Illegally, at that!

I was on tour with a big motorhome covered with an American flag during the 2016 presidential election. It had listed on its side some of the woes of American healthcare. I did not run into anyone who felt their healthcare was adequate. I ran into many people who were submerged in debt because of healthcare. How do any of you feel about giving away free healthcare to illegals when we cannot even begin to offer it to our own citizens?

I know the homeless won’t be reading this, but why should we give housing to illegal aliens when we have hundreds of thousands of homeless on the streets of America? Does this make sense to any of you? It sounds irresponsible and almost insane to be making promises such as these. It doesn’t just sound that way! It is insane. The Democrats have become the party of insanity.

They do not want their fellow Democrats to have the dignity of a job. They have taken away dignity from their fellow man and based their own survival on having a subservient base they feel do not want the self-esteem of a job but would rather stand in a food line receiving a free sandwich from the Democrats. And when their children are asked in school, “What does your daddy do?” they reply, “He stands in a welfare line all day.”

Our societal safety nets are meant to help American people who are down on their luck or through unforeseen, unfortunate circumstances need a helping hand to get back on their feet. Our safety nets are not designed to help all the downtrodden in the rest of the world. For those of you who do not feel we are helpful enough, remember, the United States of America does more to help the rest of the world with our tiny 5% of the populace than any other country in the world.

Those of you who are so willing to give everybody else’s money away should feel free to go to those countries and do missionary work to see who you are helping. So it will be a more meaningful, heartfelt experience for you, spend your own money to do so and give some of it away. There, now won’t that feel good.
