A Republican sympathizer commented (on Facebook) about my last blog entry, “You are much more interesting when you don't write about politics!” So, I’m not going to write about politics this time. I’m going to write about values.
"I like being able to fire people who provide services to me."
“We’ve always encouraged young people: Take a shot… get the education, borrow money if you have to from your parents, start a business.”
"I'm also unemployed."
"There were a couple of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip." Seriously?
"I get speaker's fees from time to time, but not very much." But, golly, put it in a little tin box and it adds up to $374,000 in one year!
“Well, there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. … These are people who pay no income tax.”
"I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there."
All from the mouth of one man.
But this isn’t about one man, it’s about values.
“Free enterprise has done more to lift people out of poverty, to help build a strong middle class, to help educate our kids, and to make our lives better than all the programs of government combined.”
“My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
“And they will vote for this president no matter what.”
