Something to Share

Someone left an anonymous comment on my "Response from Mel Martinez" post. It is so great and to the point that I wanted to make sure everyone saw it. Thank you, by the way, to my anonymous reader. This is exactly my point when I say that taking from the wealthy and giving to the poor as well as the undoing of welfare reform in this new spending bill will make us dumber and less productive as a country. This is not just an idea, but something that has been proven by history.

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, will prove the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

  1. That would be your KSC buddy David.
    Thought you would appreciate it.

  2. Ya know, I couldn't agree more. I could go into this whole socialist agenda our new prezzy seems to wholeheartedly espouse, but I won't.
    Suffice to say, I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one who sees what is going on and don't like it, nope, not one bit!!
    And hell no, I didn't vote for this guy either!!
