There was a couple of letters to the editor in a local newspaper on how the "poor" owe everything to the Demon 'er Democratic party, this is the reply I submitted. -----------
I found great humor in recent letters discussing how much people owe to the Democratic Party. It was a good reminder that too many citizens do not appreciate government for what it represents.
If any politicians truly cared for the people they represent, they’d not lie to them as they had to the poor, telling them there was no need for cost of living adjustments for 3 years when everyone who buys groceries has seen them skyrocket.
We wouldn’t have politicians exempting themselves from limitations they put on people who depend on Medicare or Social Security. If our political leaders had to live on a fixed income, they might truly appreciate the hardships they impose on the poor when they cut entitlements. If they truly represented the average citizen by being an average citizen, they might not constantly make rules they exempt themselves and their families from having to follow.
Our politicians are a bunch of “king” and “queen” wannabes who are arrogant & condescending, with an entitlement mentality that would put King George to shame. They believe they deserve the best as they see themselves as better than those they represent.
Citizens need to depend on Jesus, who actually “walked the walk”. Jesus lived a sin free life, sacrificed himself on a cross, was resurrected, and offers salvation to those who believe and profess in Jesus’ divinity.
Politicians promise many things, but like Satan are liars, manipulators, and should not be revered or trusted. Putting faith in a political party is like worshipping a golden donkey or elephant. People need to learn that all good things they have are from God’s mercy, not politician’s lies.
Regardless of people’s economic, employment, or other status, the good in their lives is because of God’s mercy, and his greatest mercy is in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and resurrection, not a political party.
