WHAT'S ON MY MIND TODAY

**"A wave of attention spurred the Justice Department to address debtors'

prisons in 2016, but things could change for the worst. The 2016 guidance,

issued by former President Obama’s Justice Department, urged state and local

courts nationwide to abide by constitutional principles prohibiting the jailing of

poor people who cannot afford to pay court fines and fees. Jeff Sessions’ action

makes clear that he and his Justice Department are unconcerned by courts

trampling on the rights of poor people."

From https://www.openbible.info/topic:

Matthew 5:3 ESV

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

Luke 12:33 ESV

"Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with

moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not

fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys."

Proverbs 29:7 ESV 

"A righteous man knows the rights of the poor; a wicked man does not

understand such knowledge."

Proverbs 14:31 ESV

"Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to

the needy honors him."

The Statue of Liberty: "“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses

yearning to breathe free.” This quote comes from Emma Lazarus' sonnet, New

Colossus."

I know that President Trump backs Sessions when the " Justice Department

are unconcerned by courts trampling on the rights of poor people," but from all

I've typed above, being a long time Republican and conservative, I might

considered voting Democratic in 2020.
