A few hundred years ago we brought Africans over and made them our slaves. America gets bashed repeatedly for its history of slave owning, but slavery had been around for thousands of years before America existed. We thought we abolished slavery in the 1800s, but it turns out we really didn’t.
We have a modern day form of slavery in America. This underclass of individuals are known as The Employed. They are the new slaves of America. Like the slaves of old who kept the plantations running, these new slaves are responsible for keeping the whole nation going. They are the ones who keep the wheels of society turning. They have get up early every morning, get dressed, and go to work every day—most likely at a job they hate—to keep the infrastructure going and support all the others who don’t work.
The Employed have their hard-earned money forcefully taken from them against their will before they even see it. Oh, sure, The Employed are allowed to keep a portion of their money—but for some of their work day—they are working for free. Added up over the course of a lifetime of working, and it’s years an employed person works for free. Non voluntary labor for free = slavery.
The Employed aren’t asked if they want their money handed to people who have multiple children they can’t afford. They aren’t asked if they wish to pay for the education, housing, food, EBT cards and medical care for all the free-loaders. No, The Employed have no choice. They are forced to hand over their money to support The Non-Working class.
Which brings me to the illegal immigrant and refugee problem. Our government expects The Employed to not only support their fellow countrymen, but also a flood of immigrants from other countries. We currently have open borders and Obama says he wants to bring in thousands of Syrian refugees because….The Statue of Liberty. We need to bring in these foreigners because Obama says, it’s our “values” and “who we are”. Ah, wrong. The State of Liberty doesn’t say:
“Give me your ignorant, your angry, your filthy masses yearning to take advantage of the American welfare system. Send these, the homeless, the tempest tossed, who will never assimilate because their cultural and religious values are so different from mine.”
It isn’t even an issue of whether or not terrorists could sneak in with the refugees (although that is a concern). Currently in America, we have more people on welfare then are employed. The Non-Working class is overwhelming The Employed. This is not a sustainable system, yet our government appears to be oblivious and is having a raging debate about whether to bring the refugees* in or not. There shouldn’t be a debate.
America is broke…
…..and when you’re broke, you don’t invite a bunch of poor people to come live in your house.
*A study of refugees showed that 95% of them were still on welfare five years after coming to America. But of course they are. They can’t speak, read or write English. They have no skills or education. They aren’t even Taco Bell material.
