In the Senate Loungeby admin on 01/04/2018 6:41 AM
Between a Tax/Spend/Regulate senator (Charles) and a Liberty/Freedom Senator (Mitch)
Senator Mitch (R): Medicare will run out of money three years sooner than expected — becoming insolvent in 2026 — and Social Security’s financial problems can’t be ignored either, the government said this week in a sobering checkup on programs vital to the middle class.
Senator Charles (D): But that’s not our problem. I’ll be out of office by 2026. I’m not going to get electrocuted by the third rail of politics.
Senator Mitch (R): But don’t you think that in the history books of our time you may be held responsible for the destruction of our nation.
Senator Charles (D): I won’t be here at that time. And I won’t feel the flak in my coffin.
Senator Mitch (R): So you don’t mind that generations in the future would judge you at being part of the downfall of the greatest nation in all of history?
Senator Charles (D): You’re one of those that thinks we were the greatest and that we should make America great again?
Senator Mitch (R): Yes, indeed. We are the first nation in history to have that opinion and history has born out that we were.
Senator Charles (D): In what way?
Senator Mitch (R): In every way. After every war, we help the nations we defeated to get back on their feet. We give assistance to almost every country that needs help. We have not made colonies out of the nations we have defeated. We are the protectorate of the entire world in helping all of them to maintain their freedom. We are not imperialistic.
Senator Charles (D): But you have no sympathy for the poor and down trodden. You are against welfare for the poor.
Senator Mitch (R): But your welfare has not helped the poor. It just has made more people poor. Some people strive to be poor so they can get more welfare.
Senator Charles (D): If we had income equality, we wouldn’t have this problem.
Senator Mitch (R): All the …isms that have tried, have failed. Ours is the only country that has given everyone equal opportunity. It’s in our constitution giving everyone equal opportunity. It states that All Men are Created Equal! Some of the greatest heroes of our nation came her penniless and made a fortune. Now with the internet, even the people on welfare can make a fortune. J.K. Rowling who was on welfare and has made £ billions as the author of the record-breaking, multi-award-winning Harry Potter novels. Loved by fans around the world, the series has sold over 450 million copies, been translated into 78 languages, and made into eight blockbuster films. From being destitute to making Billions. We have a number of people from the Rockefeller’s to the Vanderbilt’s who went from poverty to super wealth. Welfare just prevents such imaginable goals to be realized. Welfare would have prevented all these successful immigrants from makimng our country so prosperous.
America is certainly exceptional. Why don’t we return to exceptionalism? We now have a leader that can do it.
What is Congress Really Saying? Or do they even know what they are doing?
