Alternate title: Mugged by reality.
Seriously, what could better explain their worldview? The same thing happens weekly in theologically Liberal churches led by false teachers such as Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis. They take verses out of context about helping the “least of these” — while hypocritically supporting the Democrats’ platform of unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortions that literally destroy the least of these — yet it never occurs to them that by definition you can only give your own money. If you ask “Caesar” to take it from neighbor A by force to redistribute to neighbor B, then that isn’t giving. See the good folks at Dictionary.com on the difference between giving and taxes if you need help with that.
Here is a better view of real giving, courtesy of the Holy Spirit:
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
As evil and incompetent as the Obama administration is, they aren’t completely without intellect. They are so committed to their horrific Cloward/Piven/Alinsky agenda that they don’t mind looking foolish as long as they get their end game: Universal health care and more government control of everything. They know there is a tipping point after which it will be too late to stop it, short of a full-blown revolution.
But quotes from Leftist voters who are finally impacted by the consequences of their worldview do give a glimmer of hope. Hopefully enough people will notice how Obama is pushing the next wave of bad news to just after the November 2014 elections and they’ll realize that he didn’t just lie to them once.
Republicans have a golden opportunity — which, admittedly, they will probably ruin — to reset voter expectations for a decade or more. They just need to relentlessly point out the consequences of the Leftist mindset of “charity” and how superior and more fair the free market approach is.
