While Americans go homeless, neglected, and ignored
, we give the likes of Bechtel, Halliburton, and faceless Iraqis billions to squander. It makes no sense. Can you think of any single historical piece of social legislation that the Republicans championed in the last four years? Does anyone know their history as to what names the proponents of Social Security were called back when it was proposed by FDR?
Many today are heard to denounce any law that seeks to protect and support those in need: the poor, the ill, the sick, the insane, the disabled - the way that those of true faith were taught by Jesus and Moses - under the guise of "we need to each go it alone."
Yet, this ignores the agreement Americans made when they proclaimed,
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
It was a social contract entered into to achieve for all Americans what is highlighted in bold, and for those detailed items put forth in the Constitution. Today, those in power seek to do away with the duties imposed upon us all by the Constitution in order to do for themselves only, while disregarding other Americans.
