COMPASSIONATE -CAPITALISM

I AM NOT ANTI CAPITALISM. I AM NOT ANTI COMMUNISM OR ANTI SOCIALISM. WE ARE A WORLD OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT GOVERN DIFFERENTLY. EVEN DICTATORS NEED SUPPORT OF THE PEOPLE TO REMAIN IN POWER.

I AM AGAINST ANY POLITICAL SYSTEM THAT SUPRESSES IT’S OWN PEOPLE THROUGH FEAR AND INTIMIDATION. I DO NOT BEGRUDGE THE WEALTHY AND THEIR AFFLUENCE UNLESS THEY ARROGANTLY FLAUNT THEIR WEALTH AND SHOW NO COMPASSION FOR THE POOREST OF THE POOR AND THE DOWNTRODDEN AND THE SICK AND HANDICAPPED.

FOR EXAMPLE: AT THE FIRST BIDEN-TRUMP DEBATE IT WAS POINTED OUT THAT THE “FIRST DAUGHTER” HAD A $ 3000.00 COACH PURSE AND HER ENTIRE OUTFIT COST $ 30,000.00 USD ! NOW THAT DID NOT BOTHER ME UNTIL I REALIZED THAT THIS WAS A OFFICIAL EVENT AND THAT YOU AND I PROBABLY PAID FOR IT !! SO WHILE MUCH OF THE USA IS FACING FINANCIAL DISASTER AND A PANDEMIC ALONG WITH THE POOREST OF OUR POOR BEING EVICTED AND LIVING HAND TO MOUTH, THE FIRST DAUGHTER SHOWS UP DRESSED LIKE IT’S A FASHION SHOW ! IT MADE ME WANT TO PUKE ! IT IS THE POOR JUDGEMENT AND THE LACK OF COMPASSION THAT MADE ME PHYSICALLY ILL ! IT WAS THE EPITOME OF THE SELF CENTERED MENTALITY THAT PERVADES THIS FIRST FAMILY AND THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. AGAIN, I DO NOT BEGRUDGE FANCY CLOTHES AND BOBBLES AND SHINEY OBJECTS. HOWEVER, THERE IS A TIME AND A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. THE DEBATE WAS NOT A INAGURATION BALL !!!

I TAKE REFUGE IN KNOWING THAT AFTER TRUMP IS DRAGGED OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE, ALL THE LENDING INSTITUTIONS WILL START THEIR PROPERTY FORCLOSURES ON HIS PROPERTIES THAT ARE “UNDER WATER”. THE CRIMINAL FRAUD AND THE TRUMP “EMPIRE” INVESTIGATIONS WILL EVENTUALLY ALL BECOME PUBLIC RECORD AND HIS HISTORICAL SHAME.

GENERALLY, WE ALL VOTE TO MAINTAIN OUR OWN BEST SELF INTERESTS AND WHAT WE THINK IS THE IN THE BEST INTEREST OF OUR COUNTRY. CAPITALISM REQUIRES THAT THERE WILL BE FEWER AT THE TOP OF THE PYRAMID (wealthy) AND MANY AT THE BOTTOM (poor) OF THE PYRAMID. THE TERM ” TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMY” IS OK IN THEORY BUT MUCH TOO OFTEN RESULTS IN THE TRICKLING DOWN OF THE WEALTHY UPON THE HEADS OF THE POOR. WE DO NEED WEALTHY PEOPLE. CAPITALISM IS A GREAT MOTIVATOR. WHAT WE DO NOT NEED ARE CAPITALISTS LIKE DONALD TRUMP THAT ARE DRIVEN BY GREED AND POWER. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT WE DO HAVE MANY GOOD AND KIND WEALTHY PEOPLE WITH A GREAT LONG TERM PERSPECTIVE. i.e. the BILL AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION AND WARREN BUFFET. THEY CAN HAVE AND DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING THEY WANT, WHEREVER THEY WANT!!!!! BUT WHAT DO THEY DO ?? BILL GATES IS TRYING TO PERFECT THE TOILET SO THAT 3RD WORLD COUNTRIES CAN AVOID CONTAMINATION AND ILLNESS AND BE MORE HEALTHY ! WHAT DOES TRUMP DO ? HE CALLS THEM S____ HOLE COUNTRIES BECAUSE YES, THEY POOP IN A OPEN HOLE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE PLUMBING ! WHAT DID WARREN BUFFET DO ? HE GAVE BILL AND MELINDA GATES A FEW BILLION DOLLARS TO HELP THEM WITH THEIR FOUNDATION. THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT CAN HAVE VIRTUALLY ANYTHING THEY WANT YET THEY CHOOSE TO TRY AND MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE FOR EVERYONE ON THE PLANET !!!! NOW THAT IS COMPASSIONATE CAPITALISM ! THERE ARE MANY OTHERS. AND NO…I AM NOT ONE OF THEM ! IT SOUNDS LIKE ALOT OF WORK ! I AM CONTENT SITTING ON MY DOCK AND DRINKING A COUPLE BEERS. I THINK ABOUT “THINGS” , AND THE WORLD. I GIVE THANKS TO GOD FOR THE LIFE THAT LANDED IN MY LAP AND FOR MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. I THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE OF OUR WORLD AND OUR CHILDREN. I PRAY THAT WE FIND COMPASSION AND COOPERATION INTERNATIONALLY. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL, AND IF OUR BACKS ARE EVER UP AGAINST THE WALL….. WE’LL BE TOGETHER !! VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE !!!!!!
