I finally figured out the main difference between the conservatives who support dismantling Obamacare and those liberals who argue for keeping it and improving on it, are that there really are people who don’t want to support the less fortunate with their tax dollars. They insist, I guess, that it’s every dog for themselves, but don’t expect to get help from them.

I’m not making a judgment here. It’s just fact that there are people who don’t think like me (I consider myself an independent) that believe you help where you can, and if it is tax dollars, so be it.

I’m getting it, though, that there are millions of people in this country that would rather not have a federal government that pokes it nose into everything. They would rather be free of all restrictions, all laws, and just fend for themselves and let their neighbors do the same.

I think it crosses a deadly line to think like that. We need, I believe you help in securing the health of our planet (you just don’t allow coal mining residue to be poured into the river; you just don’t, but that is what Trump’s EO has allowed), and in providing the funds and support for those that genuinely need it.

And it’s not true as the Declaration of Independence states that we are all created equal (“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”) because we are all so different from skin color to language to looks to degrees of IQ, and so forth.

So the people who are more equal, I feel, have the ability and should have the desire to help those not of their equal, economically or health-wise.

But that, like I said, I have finally figured out that there are millions of my fellow citizens that are adamant they don’t want to help. I have trouble with that, but that is my right to be troubled by it just as it is the right of others not to help.

So it is not difficult for those who feel different than me to pull the rug out on universal healthcare. They don’t want their tax dollars helping others. They want their money back, and they will get it if the right bill is passed and just over $700 million in tax breaks are given to those who make $250,000 or over a year.

I guess in order to get the government to act like you want it to is to vote into power those who agree with you, which so far has happened with the far right, the religious right and the conservatives. And if you don’t vote, then you have no right press your view on others.

Be well pal.

Be careful out there.

Have a great day.

You are loved.
