Political Pull Means Everything Today

If your employment is with a large company with political pull (you know what I mean--“too big to fail”) . . . or if you are with a government favored company with the political pull of a labor union . . . or if you are working at some level of government that functions as a taxing, regulating and enforcing agency of private businesses; then you are “with the program”.  You will get along just fine in the coming near future of this country.  In other words, relax, you have the best seats on the Titanic.

Those in the private sector work force, not favored by federal, state or local government are going to see their freedom to produce and provide service for their fellow Americans extremely hampered in the coming months and years.  Why do I say this?  Because we are being transformed into a society based on political pull and political favors versus a society based on value for value free market trade by consenting consumers and providers.

If pinned down in a corner, many politicians will simply reply, “hey, that is what the people are voting for and I just represent THE PEOPLE.”

Why don’t any of them say “SOME of the people”, for we are not all children without understanding!

What the politicians are trying to find the courage to tell us in a nutshell is that they are fully aware that the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.  But the inside scoop is that the majority of them don’t see this as a problem!

Do we still have time to educate or should we just continue to baby these folks?  In a curious way, it is they who are really in control of our nation’s future; not the people who actually work for a living now or those who are retired from working for a living in the past.

I realize those holding the metaphorical whips and cattle prods see many of us as sheep and defenseless as doves, but read Matthew:10:16: “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves!”  I guess in this context, I have to sheepishly confess I’d rather be a wise dove than a wolf.
