Again, a liberal Facebook friend posted a link to an article in liberal publication Daily Kos. The headline read: “Tough guy Chris Christie wants to beat up on disabled, elderly when he’s president.” No matter what your political persuasion is, always double check, especially when you see something as “sensational” as this headline.
I can honestly say that since the Internet has come of age and I have been following politics and current events on the Internet, I’ve only seen one conservative post where the quote of a liberal was taken completely out of context and I commented back that it was. Also, there have been many times that a conservative article or headline sounded harsh and upon checking I found it not as bad as portrayed. I’ve seen a lot more on the liberal side where liberals either out and out lie or stretch the truth to the nth degree. A number of posts on this website illustrate just that.
According to this article in the Daily Kos, Governor Christie, speaking at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College, called for reduced Social Security benefits for retired seniors earning more than $80,000 and eliminating the benefit entirely for individuals making $200,000 and up in other income, along with raising the retirement age to 69 from 67.
Are the liberals squawking or what?
Bernie Sanders, Independent Senator from Vermont and avowed socialist said the following, “What Governor Christie is saying is just the continuation of war being waged by the Republican Party against the elderly, against the children, against the sick, and against the poor, in order to benefit millionaires and billionaires. It is an outrage.”
I only have a bachelor’s degree plus I’m southern, conservative, white, and Christian. According to liberals, this makes me an unenlightened oaf which I readily admit that I am.
Isn’t it the liberals that hate the “well off?” Isn’t it the liberals that believe in re-distribution of wealth? Isn’t it the liberals that believe our economy is a zero-sum game and if you are doing well, you must have cheated to get there and should be punished by perhaps, stripping you of your wealth?
What Chris Christie is proposing is indeed re-distribution of wealth/punish the rich. Even though Chris Christie is a Republican, what he said is straight out of the Democrat playbook.
The purpose of this post is not to debate Chris Christie’s ideas about Social Security, but to expose liberals for what they are and to remind them of some things. Though, in the past, they have, on many occasions, proven that they are not capable of reading comprehension. I’m going to try anyway.
You liberals are for expanding the federal government, you’re for increased entitlement spending even when there is no money available. You’re response to this is, “tax the rich.” You resent people who work hard just to have something. You hate corporations who employee millions of people, produce goods and services, and create wealth. You want to take from those who have and give to the have-nots. Your top elected officials discourage the work ethic; and instead encourage folks to follow their dreams and not to worry about stuff such as health care. The government will take care of you. Your goal is to make as many folks dependent on government as possible.
So when Governor Christie suggests reducing Social Security benefits for those making over $80,000 and eliminating Social Security benefits for those making over $200,000, you should be applauding. I know you liberals have trouble understanding what you read, even though the academic elites are in your corner, so I’ll take it slow.
Social Security is not an entitlement, employees and employers alike contribute to Social Security with the understanding that one of these days they will get some of that money back. If you can grasp the fact that those senior citizens earning over $80,000 have put money into the pot and Governor Christie is wanting to take the pot away from them, you should be on his bandwagon, shouldn’t you?
But this is what you liberals are all about. You’re okay the pot calling the kettle black. You’re okay with telling lies and you’re okay with being unethical. Most of you refuse to have reasonable discussion with conservatives because you know you can’t win. Instead, you hurl insults and do your best to get off subject. I have a hard time calling you stupid because so many academic elites are in your corner. Maybe your intelligence level is that of a genius and you have no common sense.
You know what I really think. You do these things because you can. No one holds you accountable. The press, except for Fox News, which you hate, is on your side.
Even though the headline of the Daily Kos article indicates Chris Christie wants to beat up on the disabled, nothing is mentioned about Social Security disability benefits in the body of the article. So, I’m going to say it with no regrets, the Daily Kos is a worthless idiotic liberal publication and the people that work there sure give the appearance that they are worthless idiots also.
