I want to begin by saying that the US government is a bunch of monkeys throwing shit at each other.
I have been doing lots of research about stimulus packages around the world in allied counties and they provided better arrangements. In the majority of cases they provided monthly checks to those affected by the coronavirus.
The US government was like “Oh $1200 can last you a while.” Well according to numerous economists around the world the US needs around $10 trillion in economic stimulus overall to get back on track.
I hate to say it but Trump is right about the $600 stimulus checks being too small. Average rent nationally is a little over $1400 per month according to rental reports across the nation. If that’s the national average $1200 was still too little. $2000 can go much further than either $600 or $1200 can and it would be enough to pay for food and shelter at the very least.
The saddest part of these statistics is that Republican congressmen and women are too blind or out of touch with reality. And the even saddest part is the Republican Party claims to be all about religious freedom all while trying to curb other religions that they don’t agree with.
Historical facts show that the United States of America were founded on Christian principles however the Founding Father’s only could plan for the foreseeable future. They didn’t plan for all the religions that make up the US culture today. Which is why the wrote in the clause for the free practice of religion period.
Other things wrong with political parties is too often one side is so entrenched in their ideologies that they don’t want to compromise. Namely the Republican Party. The things they have done to our government is all about suppression in various ways. The governor of Texas made it so there was only one ballot drop location per county to “prevent fraud.” Various other Republican groups and politicians have tried numerous times to eliminate laws that prohibit discriminatory laws regarding voting and also those same states on the surface the existing laws look good but in reality are designed to suppress minority groups from voting.
George Washington wrote in a letter to his successor a warning against forming political parties quoting the Bible verse “A house divided amongst itself cannot stand.” Those words have rang true over the last four years under Trump as our country squabbles over legislation our enemies are eyeing us like a juicy steak.
I know some of this post hasn’t been directly related to the title of the post however it is interconnected in ways that many would miss. One example is the division of our government in political parties. That division is the cause of so much pain for working families during the pandemic. Second example of how all this ties together is the behavior of the Republican Party. They have a tendency to look out for their own pockets than the people they are elected to represent. All while claiming to be morally right as “upstanding Christians.” It is all a joke. The Bible is clear on the duties of the church and one of those duties is to take care of the poor, orphaned, and widowed.
Republicans blocking legislation that could help the poor goes against everything the Bible teaches. While the Democratic Party is trying to do what the bible commands. As it stands now the Democratic Party is doing the job of the Republican Party while the Republican Party is lining their pockets.
That’s the reality of today and I hope I can get more followers on this blog because I want to reach more people with the truth. If you have any comments or suggestions or any constructive feedback feel free to let me know. I want to remain objective and truthful as close as possible.
