People vote with their emotions!
It’s not who or what they love,
But sadly who or what they hate.
If they’re blue collar,
They’re against asylum seekers.
So they want the government to build a wall,
To keep the economic migrants out!
Even though their “American Dream”,
Is to not ever, have to do those jobs,
For such low wages.
They still vote republican.
If they’re affluent society,
They’re against minorities who depend
On social programs for assistance,
Because they believe they pay too much taxes!
Even though, I pay my fair share,
It’s still not enough.
Social security and medicare
Benefited their parents,
But they don’t care,
Because they don’t think,
They’ll be needing it, too.
So they vote republican.
If they’re conservatives,
They’re against all democrats.
They hate all victims and all protestors,
Who are defending the public’s civil-rights!
Even though our country is a democracy,
Which was founded on the constitution
With First Amendment protections for all,
Those patriot moms and dads,
Are teaching their children—
How to vote republican.

Texas Conservatives Fear “Takeover” By Immigrants
Commentary: People I talk to—tell me don’t worry this hatred will eventually blow over. America’s people are good, we will overcome. But, what makes us think that we are so great? Have the prosperity-religion evangelicals returned to our “founding fathers Christian values”? All over the world citizens are protesting government tyranny. Countries collapse and communities are destroyed all the time. We have already had one civil war, do you really believe the outcome of a second one will be good for the country? Are you serious, when you say: our children will be able to survive it, or are you just hoping, just like I am? So I have one huge favor to ask of you: Can you help me, vote the republicans out—before they start martial law, take over the military and steal our civil-rights—because they will continue to incite hate, unless they’re removed from office?
“Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought.
To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears.
To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool.
To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen.
To be led by a liar is to ask to be told lies.
To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery.” Excerpt from On How Not To Choose Our Leaders
“Pundits like to take refuge in the saccharine refrain, “this is not who we are,” but historically, this is exactly who we are. Political violence is an endemic feature of American political history. It was foundational to the overthrow of Reconstruction in the 1870s and the maintenance of Jim Crow for decades after.” Excerpt from Where Will This Political Violence Lead? Look to the 1850s.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Bible, James 1:27
“You must not exploit a resident alien or oppress him, since you were resident aliens in the land of Egypt.” Exodus 22:21
