Democrats have no real intent of lifting the poor out of poverty

  • Published in Letters
To the editor,
Democrats have declared since Adam and Eve that they represent the less fortunate of America. If that is true no advocate for any one has failed their cause with such certainty, for so long as the Democratic Party. If the thinking/programs of the Democratic Party were indeed the solutions to the unequal society is it not reasonable to expect after 75 years there might be one sign of progress. We implemented endless legislation from the greatest "society equalizers" of the 20th century, from FDR to JFK and LBJ. Government programs from all of them trumpeted with great fan fare, assigned catchy code names like the "New Deal" and the "Great Society" all aimed to produce EQUALITY and reduce poverty in America. Face the truth people, every boondoggle, contrived, jury-rigged, paper-clipped, band-aided, cleverly-hyped, whirly gig contraption dreamed up by that donkey threesome, hoodwinked on a society, brain washed to think GOVERNMENT would solve their every problem has done absolutely NOTHING. . . I repeat. . . NOTHING except push this country ever closer to financial extinction.
After all the great hype and the trillions spent, what do we have to show for it? Record poverty, record numbers on welfare by any measurement, record disability claims (many totally fraudulent), record debt waiting delivery to our children and Democrats who never stop PROMISING their NEXT IDEA will FIX EVERYTHING. We are 60 years past FDR, 50 years past JFK, and 40 years past LBJ.The differences between the top and bottom of society has never been greater despite the greatest number of safety nets and most costly social programs in our history all SOLD TO US IN THEIR DAY BY DEMOCRATS attached to promises to reduce poverty and produce equality. Guess what....EVERY IDEA FAILED.
Democrats have no intent to let the POOR OUT OF POVERTY only to lose dependent voters. They know making empting promises with catchy names, tied in candy wrappers buys elections. The less fortunate will never stop buying the sweet ILLUSION free handouts from government will bring them equality no matter that it has not happened after 75 years of promising that it will.
