John Boehner speaks of “reforming” Social Security. That’s rightwing-speak for “reducing benefits to ordinary people so that the Affluent Effluent can party on without a care”. Quite frankly, Jim DeMint, Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Grover Norquist, Paul Ryan, Willard Romney, et al are all unpatriotic self-centred pigs at the trough who want to kick the weakest amongst us so that they have more swag in their sacks (so that they can stash it offshore and spend it here). THIS is what they want. Take a GOOD look. They want to kick your parents and grandparents in the teeth so that the idle rich can continue to enjoy the lowest tax levels in the developed world. That’s EVIL.
We’re Christians… that means that we believe in a communitarian religion. We’re not Evangelicals or Mormons, who’re nothing but apologists for power and money. You can have Christian sharing n’ caring or you can have Evangelical greed and hypocrisy. God or Mammon? You can’t have both…
