Want to understand why we’re so divided?

Ted Cruz Rage-Tweets ‘Fact-Check’ Of “Lefty Press” & Sen. Durbin’s “Lies” About Stimmies For Illegal ImmigrantsThe passing, by The Senate, of the Biden admin’s $1.9 trillion package of pork and payoffs has apparently triggered Senator Ted Cruz. Having attempted to insert an amendment that would disallow the $1400 handouts to illegal immigrants (paid for by legal US taxpaying residents), he was attacked as a “liar” by Senator Dick Durbin

Cruz had asked, “The question for the American people to answer is, should your money, should taxpayer money, be sent, $1,400, to every illegal alien in America?”

Durbin said, “Undocumented immigrants do not have social security numbers. And they do not qualify for stimulus relief checks, period. And just in case you didn’t notice, they didn’t qualify in December… To stand up there and say the opposite is just to rile people up.”

As is clear by the Twitter thread below – Cruz was none too happy about Durbin’s lies (which were dutifully repeated by the mainstream media)…

Cruz begins by asking (rhetorically): “Want to understand why we’re so divided? Why each side seems to live in alternate universes?”

Take a moment & examine the misinformation here (both deliberate & inadvertent)…

FACT 1: Dem spending bill sends $1400 to each adult in US.

FACT 2: Dems voted against my amendment to prohibit sending those $$ to criminals (murderers, rapists, child molesters) currently IN PRISON. EVERY Dem voted to send criminals the $$.

FACT 3: I then called up my amendment to prohibit illegal aliens from getting the $1400 checks.

FACT 4: Durbin then screamed “liar!” and insisted no illegal immigrants would get $$ because the bill requires social security numbers.

More…

It does not take a great leap of understanding to see how Democrats will control future elections by buying illegal alien and criminal votes.

I do not think the tax payers money should be handed out to anyone as welfare. The government used as a charitable organization is unAmerican. The founder would look at those who think it a good idea as the enemy.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” — Samuel Adams
“If Congress can apply money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may establish teachers in every State, county, and parish, and pay them out of the public Treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post roads. In short, every thing, from the highest object of State legislation, down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress; for every object I have mentioned would admit the application of money, and might be called, if Congress pleased, provisions for the general welfare.” — James Madison
These quotes are from the big government side when the country was founded. So how much have we self professed patriots have fallen from what America really is.

Sorry for the formatting. Not sure why carriage return does not create a paragraph.

Charity should come from the heart, not government.

Hard times and people suffering is good when it comes from foolish voting and poor life choices. There is no other way for fools to learn a lesson.
