Defining Christian Conservatism
A Good Conservative there is no such Animal
Conservatism: When your need for more infringes on the right of the Many to live equally under the Law as it concerns the natural order of Humanity.
Totalitarianism- The need to control not only in Government but the viewpoint, behavior, and migration pattern of everyone.
Do not tell me you are a good Man who believes in Capitalism, who just want's to hire more people giving them employment opportunities. The agenda is purely one of self -interest to grow your Wealth to an obscene amount; it's power driven. What capitalism means for you is growing your wealth, to ensure that your Family can have access to all those un- necessary wants on a grand scale, while denying others the basic human rights of doing the same. Handing out the occasional charitable tax exempt gift may assuage your guilt. Imagine what teaching your employees how to start a business, or inviting them to own stock in your company would do. It would grow you spiritually as well as ensuring your employees feel a sense of belonging. But by all means, keep donating those tax write-offs, I wouldn't want you depriving a child of the joy associated with getting gifts at Christmas, when gosh darn it, they already go hungry physically and emotionally the rest of the Year.
It isn't Christian Conservatism, it's plain and simple greed to line your coffers, enough will never be enough. Sure everyone would love to be able to have a very comfortable life and the ability to travel, whenever the mood strikes, to give our Children unlimited opportunities. Sadly that cannot happen as no one would work, but of course, the one unifying detail is this there would be no need for money. What Conservative's don't seem to realize, is this, Humanity is a well-oiled machine, every Person has a place. When we deny others the right to exist then we deny ourselves opportunities and the right to also exist. Those immigrants denied access to America may be the future Doctor, Lawyer, Farmer, Nurse, carpenter, etc., you may need in order to sustain all aspect of life.
The Lottery: Survival At All Cost Of A Select Few
A totalitarian view aptly describes the character of the few who would see the rights of immigrants denied on the basis of entitlement while enjoying those same rights to travel for businesses or for personal pleasure.
When eventually they the Superior Whites, have done away with the Muslims, blacks, other People of Color, then it will be you the Jews, the Italians, the Irish, who will not be white enough.
Where will I stand on the issues of Christianity, Conservatism, the right of People to chose or define for themselves their religion, sexual identity, a Woman's right to choose? My feet are firmly planted buried in idealism that we have the inalienable right's to define without interference the aforementioned, who we are, and who we want to be is up to us as adults to determine.
We are not Children, relying on a great white Father to tell us how to think and feel. Our individual intelligence and capabilities should be enough. I'll not be on the side of Capitalism or Conservatism. as both define an individual lacking in character.
Make no mistake it is survival of the fittest based solely on capitalistic views and Human gentrification. "President Trump on Friday said sweeping changes are needed to the Dodd-Frank financial reform law because his friends in business are struggling to get loans from banks...We expect to be cutting a lot out of Dodd-Frank because, frankly, I have so many people, friends of mine, who have nice businesses who can’t borrow money. They just can’t get any money because the banks just won’t let them borrow, because of the rules and regulations in Dodd-Frank,” Trump said at a Friday morning meeting with CEOs from a number of companies".- The Hill- Vicki Needham
The latest Executive Order
- Direct various federal agencies to more strictly identify and exclude potential immigrants likely to need certain types of public aid and deport those already in the United States who have had to rely on social services help.
- Command federal officials to determine how much the federal government could save — it specifically suggests a savings of $100 billion — if immigrants were limited to getting “only the public benefits that they are eligible to receive.”
- Compel federal officials to demand reimbursement from people inside the United States who made legal promises to support immigrant relatives, if necessary.
- Require social service agencies to report immigrant benefit recipients to federal authorities Janell Ross Wahington Post.
The latest executive order claimed by Washington post signed has implications not only as it relates to Immigrants, but depending on how it is written and interpreted may affect the pay of Military retirees, Social Security retirement, and Social Security Disability, and of course those who may need it the most Women and Children. It will affect Hud, not only low income but mid-income Americans who finance their homes using Federal funds.
Having completed my internship with the Welfare Office All recipients have to provide the proper documentation a Social Security number as well as a green card. Although I don't claim privilege in knowing all the programs that perhaps fall under Welfare. I can state there are possibly a small number of illegals receiving Welfare mainly by fraud most of whom are American born and raised.

Life Imitates Art
"Lottery in June the corn will be ready soon" As a comparative narrative the small town much like any other small Town sees itself in an economic decline. While its neighboring Towns have dismissed the Lottery, there is a Minority group that holds onto that belief in the myth of maintaining the Lottery to ensure that there is an abundance of crops. The Myth that someone has to die in order for the crops to grow shows the ignorance that had long plagued this small Town. Their values maintained as a right of passage passed on through generation as we see the eldest surviving Male outliving perhaps Children and Grandchildren.
As each individually to include the Children are allowed to draw or pick from a basket. There is a sigh of relief, as each pulls the required paper that ensures another Year of life. The reality that it could or will happen to them eventually does not seem to be an issue until the unfortunate Female who is the one chosen realizes that she has outlived her time and her life is to be sacrificed.
Conservatism is the corn, and the towns in America experiencing economic decline is representative of the small Town that continues to hold the "Lottery". Much like it is depicted in the movie, the residents never think to relocate or to deviate from their routine.
Americas Lottery System -The chosen for the Lottery we see here in America are the Mexicans and Muslims. The Mexican population blamed for the state of unemployment, (corn) as indicated in the Movie. The realization that the conservative policy only applies to some will become that black dot on the card as the new administration continues to line the pocket of the top 1%, occasionally a few will benefit, until such time as it is their turn to they draw the black dot.
We see Children denied access to enter for a Lifesaving procedure, scheduled to undergo Heart surgery. Four-month-old Fatemeh was one of the hundred's of immigrants denied access into the United Staes as a result of Trump's executive order.
A toddler, who traveling alone was stuck on a flight for an unreasonable amount of time en route to meet with his Mother. Is this the America we live in now, whereby the most vulnerable are subject to laws of grown Men playing at Politics, while we rely on the Judicial system to correct the mistakes?
In Houston, my cousins Facebook message keeps me abreast of new information and she writes the following. All Texas State Government agencies are on a hiring freeze including State funded Universities and Educational systems". (From our Texas Legislature) -Governor Gregg Abbot-
We can also draw an inference as we see School Education defunded, which should make Conservatives happy unless it directly involves the Welfare of their Children, which it no doubt will as a great percentage relies on Federal Funds to complete their educational goals.
"It is becoming increasingly clear that President Trump measures victories by creating opposition. This constant state of fear mongering and finger pointing leaves our electorate on edge, to say the least. And when we feel shaken, it is hard to think of others. It deprives us of the worthy empathy for our fellow Americans, regardless of how they voted. This a fight for the soul of our nation". - Dan Rather-
If it is not yet obvious to the rest of Society, the nefarious intent of the current Commander and Chief, then Humanity is indeed lost hence no more need for the rest of us to try to educate. Empathy is not learned it is inborn the few that perhaps were blessed or cursed with it can do no more for those who sees self-interest above the need of the many. If perhaps understanding does not come that you are perhaps free to practice your religious beliefs, your exclusion, your right to be homemakers, to procreate as much as you desire without involving the rest of us. It is then your intent to control, our interest being of little import. By all means, fly your confederate flags high in your own homes, install your children in Private Schools, at a cost to you, but please do not tell the rest of us our hard earned taxed dollars should help to pay for your Children's Christian development.
