If we are seeking government to do our bidding government is our god. If we want to show mercy we personally should do so and not pressure the government to do it for us. If we want a border less nation we should petition the government for it to be so. But I'd be careful to believe we are doing so in God's name. Modern methods of support and security are not necessarily met with Gods blessing. Let charity of the body be secondary to that of the soul. And May charity of the body not be stolen from the pockets of another. That unearned wages may not be sought over wages produced by ones own hard labor. The prospect of labor without wages may become the ultimate end. This is slavery.

"For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." – 2 Thessalonians 3:10

Our land of opportunity is turning into a land of entitlement. If it continues, America will be nothing but the ruling class and the poor. We now breed and embrace dependency. We should be cutting programs and spending, as well as taxes, if feasible.

Entitlement and wealth equality efforts will wear a country down. We are enabling a lifetime of enslavement for future generations as we enable the orchestrators of our broken system.

I shudder for my children. It's not selfishness to demand restraint, it's economic reality. And if we are going to continue supporting the globe socially, economically and militarily – the globe better start paying our taxes!
