A Republican America

If one reads political news, a Republican America has the following attributes:

a) Only people with the ability to make money or who have inherited money have value in society.

b) People with no money must live as honorable poor and be supported by family and friends or by charitable organizations. They should know their place in society and except same.

c) The vast majority of people should earn their income working for other people (the better-offs) or live a self-sufficient life.

d) The government exists to protect businesses and to support the making of money.

e) The larger the business, the more influence it should have in governmental affairs. Greater economic success equals greater access to national policy.

f) Taxes are the taking of wealth from those who have it. If taxes are taken for reasons other than protecting businesses, protecting private property, and defending the country, those taxes are unnecessary. Sometimes it is okay to tax the poor to pay for poor-people programs.

g) Live by the words “For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good;but Me you do not have always.” This means that charity and the provisioning of food , shelter, and clothing for the poor are personal matters and not governmental affairs. People should pay more attention to Jesus and his teachings than to the care of other people.

h) People should pay for food, shelter, clothing, and healthcare in accordance with their ability to make money. If they are unable to make money, that is not a government concern.

i) It is not the government’s concern to create a just society or a healthy society or a safe society , government should concern itself solely with punishment of those who violate the Ten Commandments that support businesses and economic activity.

j) Those who can care for themselves should be accorded more rights and freedoms than those who cannot. Like voting, police protection, and courtroom justice.
