    Taxpayers the makers, government the takers.

    Income distribution in the USA over the last 30 years. Read it and make your own conclusions on makers and takers. I prefer to let FACTS make the arguments not emotion. Try it. It’s refreshing.

    Unfortunately, this battle will be won by the athiests.

    Begin by defining the width of a maker and taker. How much money do you need before you think of those who honestly and seriously need help?

    Is it more common for conservative to be “keepers” and “givers” to those who don’t need?

    Or do liberals give with their chosen laws take from the wealthy and give to the poor however you define that?

    Do we keep what we make by right or contribute through taxes to create and support LEVEL PLAYING FIELDS. “that which you do for the least of your brothers you do also for me”? OR “it’s mine I earned it go get yours”?

    Do most who have think those that don’t want to take from them? How many “Cadillac queens” are out there? How many are not? Are you a maker or a taker? It does not seem to relate to your current bank account? IMHO

    Wasn’t there a line in an old book somewhere about it being easier to pass a camel through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into Heaven?

    Not sure? Begin by asking yourself if Toles is liberal or conservative? That is your clue. Some will never get it now or in life. For further insight try Sermon on the Mount. I have never heard a pseudo Christian refer to those words from the lips of “their” savior.

    Didn’t think images of the Prophet were tolerated.

    Your link does a very good job of explaining what I have been saying for the last 30 years. When the board of directors of my insurance company gave themselves raises amounting to 2,000% and nothing was done about it, I could see the handwriting on the wall. I changed insurance companies, but not enough people did the same.

    If you looked at AAdoglover’s link and still can say that, then you have to be on someone’s payroll to make these posts.

    The Conservatives (selfish) vs. the Liberals (giving).
    Who are the true followers of Christianity?
    And who just drop Jesus’s name in an effort to act superior?
    Even a Lib like me can figure that out.

    So are we to assume that you – an individual – regularly open your home to those that are hungry, that you in you daily travels provide water to every homeless person standing with their sign, that you notice the ragged tattered coat on a single mother and child and you invite them into JC Penny to outfit them, that you vist the emergency room in your hometown on a regular basis finding out who in there has no funds for treatment and then pay for it, and finally you are a regular at the local prison bringing cheer and hope to those housed there-in???

    You would be well served to read the entire 24th and 25th chapters and consider the passage in context. Or maybe you don’t understand that the “message” was directed at the “congregation” of his disciples after they had asked a question concerning his future presence and the conclusion of the current system of things .

    So the except you provide is just a small section of the answer to that question where Jesus tries to explain – in terms understandable to his audience – what the coming Spiritual Kingdom is like by comparison to the physical of their day, what actions would be approved of by the King.

    Please, read it and THINK

    “An interesting link from a Hard Core Socialist Site. Missing is the percentage of income Tax by the wealthiest. Also, in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s when America was growing and prospering the wealth distribution gap was even greater……..”

    Until 1929 … worked out really well back then, too, eh?
