Politicians need wake-up call

Dear Editor:

I feel so sorry for all of the rich and not so rich people that want more and more money regardless how it affects the very much unfortunate citizens.

These wonderful just don’t want to pay a fair share of taxes. They do everything to avoid paying taxes by hiding their money in offshore banks, capital gains and other tricky ways. Sad, but true, that “our” politicians are the reason.

I feel sorry for the rich people, corporations, the ones that are paid to corrupt the politicians and the politicians that accept gratuities, which would be illegal for honest citizens. Case in point is the fact that most of a certain political party signed a pledge with a lobbyist not to raise taxes on the rich. I would be so ashamed that everyone knew I went back on the pledge I made to the voters and accepted something that caused me to betray my oath of office.

How can anyone get on TV and try to convince anyone that by taking just about everything away from them and, giving to the rich is good. What terrible things they want to inflict on the citizens that have paid their way during their lifetime of work.

I have a great idea that will solve most of the problems in this country. Let’s put all of these great politicians on the same “entitlements” as the oppressed citizens in America. Many of the forgoing mentioned people claim to be some sort of Christian while doing most everything against what God’s word says is a big time sin.

Some of the churches have big time false prophets, and a few are riddled with what God calls abomination throughout the KJV Bible. I really don’t think it will make a difference, but, all of these rich people and politicians that profess to be Christians just might get a KJV Bible and read LUKE 16: 19-31, MARK 24-25, PROVERBS 6: 16-19, ISAIAH 10: 1-2, MATTHEW 19: 23-24.

There are many others that I could quote but, if they believe they are such good “Christians,” it provably would not help. Now, if they are such good “Christians,” they won’t need to worry if our Lord and savior returns this month, or sometime in the near future. Be ready or face an eternity with many lost people. I know that I am not worthy but, I pray that I am acceptable. Amen.
