A little wisdom

Adrian Rogers

“You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 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, is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”*

This is so self evident, but yet we never seem to get it. If it were possible to tax a nation into prosperity, North Korea, Cuba, the Soviets, and all the other highly socialized countries would be wealthy beyond imagination. But yet, we think it will work here. I have news, it won’t. We are rapidly sliding into 3rd world nation status because Americans no longer feel the need to be self sufficient, and have lost the work ethic. Americans expect someone else to work and pay. This is the heart of socialism.

Socialism leads only to slavery, servitude, and poverty. Is this what you really want?
