kjv@Proverbs:22:7 > > RandyP : This is not to say that it shouldn't be this way. The majority of the poor are poor for the reasons explained here in the proverbs. They do not rule themselves so how should it be expected to rule well over others. The borrower rightfully owes the lender all that he has agreed to return else he would be a thief. It could be said that much of our nation's problem is not that we are overly compassionate but, that we are ruled by the poor and by debt that we have no intention of paying back. Debt and severe covetness have become our vision of entitlement and we blame the rich and the lender for our deepening woes. kjv@Proverbs:22:16 > > RandyP : A government driven false economy develops around the service of the poor. Money that should be flowing to the truly needy is sucked up by the service providers and delivery mechanisms installed. It is not so much the rich who desires to increase his riches that oppresses, but the workers and providers who see the service of poor as their employment career and retirement. The government sees the system as a means of inflating their employment numbers. Where are the poor left? Better off? Oppressed? kjv@Proverbs:22:17 > > RandyP : kjv@Proverbs:22:17-21 changes meter for a moment. Note that it spans these several verses all at once. kjv@Proverbs:22:26 > > RandyP : How about the politician who strikes hands and puts the American people and their future generations as sureties for debt?
