Rabbi Aryeh Spero

Poverty is caused by a lack of manufacturing jobs, out-of-wedlock births, the lack of a work ethic, laziness, a sense of entitlement, and families that do not instill important values and aspirations. And socialism and the wrong religion or wrong interpretation of religion.

Rabbi Aryeh Spero

A people raised on the belief of personal responsibility and a desire to be good at what they do, and a government that, for the most part, believes in leaving people alone.

In itself a minimum wage is not bad, however, it often ends up depriving teenagers of jobs and makes it too difficult for small, family businesses to hire young people. It can get in the way of that necessary first job experience.

To protect people from real danger and harm, and practices that are deliberately discriminating.

They place their interests above the company's ability to remain productive and survive, often have an antagonistic view toward the very company that provides them a living, care about their union jobs but not the jobs of those who are not unionized, see victory in expanding arbitrary work rules, and are an arm of the Democrat machine. Their time has come and gone. Companies today will pay for good, honest, reliable workers and those with creative ideas and energy.

Countries where unions dominate end up impoverished or stagnant: Greece, England, Italy, France. They ignore what is fair or what is good for the country; rather see themselves, especially the leadership, as the ultimate end in itself. No money is left for a company to invest, nor can a company plan ahead since unions act arbitrarily.

Government employees demand benefits and salaries so high that taxpayers who pay for this things end up with far less than the employees they are paying. Property taxes, which pay for these goodies, are so high that some homeowners are loosing their homes-- homes they've lived in for thirty years.But the fear of curtailment of vital services is the weapon unions use.

No doubt, one of the reasons for the decline in American manufacturing, and the shipping of jobs abroad, is due to the exorbitant demands of unions and their constant threats of shut-down. It's a relic and has become a tool of the Left -- all in the name of, of course, 'The People'.

If used to penalize the wealthy simply for being wealthy, it shrinks the pool of investment money for projects that will create jobs and sends the message that wealth is unsavory and ill-obtained thus the wealthy are somehow guilty. One can share with others by giving to the charities of his choice. It is not government's role to decide which causes are worthy nor to extract money, in the name of sharing, to programs and projects that bolster left wing causes and statism.

One that does not see its role as redistributing wealth, but having the funds to defend the people from external and internal attack, facilitating an infrastructure that allows commerce to thrive and people to live safely, and acknowledges the need for stable families, and takes care of the truly infirm and sick as well as a floor of dignity for the elderly.

Religion. Upbringing. Education. But most of all, their emotions and heart set the stage for what becomes their ideology. Most of today's left wing ideology, its mental aspect, is rooted in envy, cowardice, disdain , arrogance, anger, wanting to see the "mighty fall" (except when they are the mighty), and nihilism. Most of today's ideological conservatives are motivated by the emotions of duty, love of country, classic virtues, respect for the wisdom-of-old, and a contentment with what they have, bereft of deep-seated envy.
