Country was much worse

I have been a Christian for more than 53 years. If the United States was founded on Christian principles, how did slavery exist for decades after the nation was founded? Why did it take a war and a special document to end slavery? Why did segregation exist for so long? I thought the Founders of the United States said all men were created equal.

Some conservatives want to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, which will hurt the poor and the middle class. They do not want to do anything that will hurt the rich. Those conservatives should cut their pay, which is not a small amount but a large amount. Most of the people on welfare deserve to be on welfare.

I don’t think all preachers were called by God to preach. John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Jack Van Impe and Hal Lindsey all are rich conservatives. And I think conservatives are against President Obama’s Affordable Care Act because it helps the poor and the middle class.

People talk about how bad things are today, but when the country was founded and slavery existed, it was a worse time.
