My family and I are going to be fine. The election last night will not change my family’s beating heart. I have a brilliant wife and a house full of beautiful children that will plow through the toughest of situations. Four more years of the same is going to be tough to wade through, but the Jeubs will pull through, maybe even prosper.
On finances. Don’t worry about me and my 14 children. I will continue to earn my own way. I may be dangerously close to the poverty line, but I earn every single penny of my income. I love that, and I wish others – especially the poor in spirit – would know the joy of self-reliance and financial independence. Instead, the food lines will grow with the government dole. The great gifts that individuals have to offer society will be traded for welfare checks.
On business. Come to think of it, the demand for trained minds went up last night. My business and nonprofit will grow, maybe even prosper. My accountant let me know that I’ll be paying an additional $4,000 in 2013, but I’ll make up for it by charging more or cutting expenses elsewhere. Some of my more financially risky ideas will have to go. That’s business. My customers will suffer, and that is disappointing – for the both of us.
On generosity. I refuse to let go of generosity. I can’t help it. I love giving personally to those in need – both monetarily and otherwise. Government will continue to grow along with the so-called compassion of dependency. So in dollars-and-cents, my giving will pale in comparison to the massive federal government, but I will still find joy in generosity. That’s just what Wendy and I do.
On life. My family will continue to value life. We will welcome children and will grow our household with Love in the House. Supreme Court Justices will embolden pro-abortion law and keep the murder of innocents unrestricted and legal for at least another generation. My country will continue to value childlessness and lifelessness. Not in my family. The lives of our children – unborn included – will be protected.
