I understand societies' image of the ever growing homeless population in America. No matter where one goes, whether it is running errands in your respective hometown or on vacation in another state, just about every corner has a panhandler asking for money. With the signs in which you or I see, we don't take the time to stop and ask panhandlers what their stories are considering the signs are so vague when asking for help. Our busy lives and lack of money due to financial struggles of our own prevent us from handing out money to panhandlers.
I believe that politicians think that they are the only people in the world; they don't really care about anybody else, they just lie and tax the people more. What about taxing the rich more, not the poor? However, that's how they live. They live by taking it all but never giving what they promised; we should've known that they would be trouble, behind that glisten of what looked like a promise.
When is enough, enough? Having the endless pit of rejection can lead a person to do anything for extra money. The economy has been far from perfect for so many decades, and it seems like progress in regards to wealth is like climbing up a steep mountain. Where do we see the future jobs and money? Some say STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), some create their own brands and businesses, and some decide to follow the new industries at any cost.
As an African American Republican, I've been called a turncoat, a coon, and even a bootlicker all because I do not fit the narrative of the African American male. From the beginning of time, African Americans have demographically been known to vote Democrat down a single ballot and then wonder why they are still poor and hardly able to make ends meet. Most of those that have judged me and continue to shun me for openly supporting President Trump, are the main ones living in poverty and hellholes.
