Bad law-making methodologies: when politicians cause stress for the poor, the elderly,women and children

Updated on February 24, 2012

Some Law-makers hate the poor

There are those of us who vote every chance that we can get, to help elect governors, mayors, U.S. Congressional Representatives, U.S. Senators, and others who will champion the causes of the poor, the weak. Those who tend to care about the causes of the poor also tend to care about older people, women rights, children, the rights and needs of elderly people, and especially about the needs of those who are the "worse off" among us.

However, there are those people among us who are wealthy, who are a distance from the needy, and therefore, do not find a reason to care about the poor, the sick, the disenfranchised, that is, they hate those people among us who can least defend and protect themselves from harm.

Why would decent, well-off, wealthy people, who call themselves Christians, that is, Americans even, position themselves, politically, so that they are against the poor who live and dwell among us? It is difficult to answer this question. However, it is very easy to assess the fact that people who hate the poor are a "hateful" people. Let me say it more direct. Those Americans who hate the poor are "full of hate."

I am not going to dwell upon this shameful behavior too long. There is no need to dwell upon it. It is enough for us to know that when we hear, see, or know of politicians, who are running for office, while at the same time behaving and speaking in ways that shame us, by hateful positions, against the poor, the elderly, women and children, we should vote against them.

You will note that I have not written anything telling you to vote for a specific man or woman. I give you credit for having enough sense to be able to chose correctly, those individuals whom you should vote for. You are decent human being who care about those in need. You are smart enough to realize that others are in need today, but it could, easily be you, tomorrow. Shame on those, among us, who are too ignorant to discern decent and upright people, running for political office, from evil, hateful politicians who are running for office.

Again, vote against those politicians who hate people who are weak and in need.

Its that easy. Go to the polls and vote. And vote for the right leaders. That's all that's to it. Peace.

      I think it's good to touch base with these fundamental thoughts about what is right to do. It's easy to get caught up in a single line of thought in politics, with all the talk of economies, and what's best for the future. But no-one can (morally) argue that the disadvantaged don't count, or that it's "best" in any way not to cater for them. A stirring hub! Up!

      The government has always taken care of the poor. Laws have been made to try and protect women. The government doesn't really care about the elderly.

      The one thing that government has not even tried to do is help the Middle Class and in fact they targeted that class till it became bloody. And as a result of the government tapping that class for taxes and giving them little to no tax deductions or exceptions they have forced many in that class to drop to the lower class.

      While the government helped the banks that caused many people to lose their homes, they never really helped the victims, the homeowners.

      While the government pays for defined benefit pensions for its workforce, they want to blame the deficit on people that have paid Social Security Taxes for their entire worklife, and take away their meager but very important pensions.

      The government also allows pensions to their workforce to be taken as early as 55 instead of the current age of 68 for SS.

      It is a shame that election war funds are in the billions of dollars yet SS has a $255 death benefit.

      And the government even wants to take that away from them.

      Remember no party, no politician has done anything to prevent the collapse of the economy, the loss of jobs, the reduction of the government workforce, or the reduction of the very expensive pensions and benefits of that workforce. So history will repeat itself this election. No progress for the country, and no prosperity for its citizens.

      This is a good hub. One of the things we can do, is look up all the things a candidate has done, using the internet. Don't listen to him or her while they are running for office, that is usually a lie. Write what they have done and take it to the polls with you, vote out the bad ones out and vote the good ones in.
