I am quite convinced that liberals in our country want to expand the underclass of citizens who depend upon the federal government for their sustenance. When I hear politicians such as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama express their concern for the middle class, I hear a desire to expand the ranks of the “victimized,” the ones who are convinced that, but for the dastardly “wealthy,” they themselves would be doing better in life. If liberals can convince the middle class that government regulations and the redistribution of wealth need to take place so that the middle class gets “its fair share,” they will succeed in expanding their base of support for upcoming elections.
Those who see government as the solution to their material woes may find comfort in the following “psalm.”
The Government is my shepherd; I shall not want.
It makes me lie down in green pastures. It leads me beside still waters.
It restores my soul. It leads me in paths of self-pity for its expansion’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for the Government is with me; its pronouncements and promises, they comfort me.
It prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies; it fills my mailbox with checks; my hope overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall rest in my Government’s care forever.
