Conservative Quote: Those who Work Part 1

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” Thomas Jefferson

Everybody right now is interested in how the next big Obama spending bill will build on his vision of spreading the wealth. Democratic Socialism, where the common people band together in communes and run big business rather than individuals, is an unattainable model. It is just another form of socialism. It sounds good as an ideal, but is contrary to human nature. In fact, it has been tried over and over and has NEVER WORKED. In the Thesaurus, the words socialism and communism are synonyms. They actually are not, but they are close. Communism takes socialism one step farther in government ownership and control of the goods and services of a country. Both are anti free-enterprise. CAPITALISM, THE OPPOSITE OF BOTH SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM, IS THE SYSTEM UNDER WHICH AMERICA WAS BUILT AND THRIVED SINCE ITS BEGINNING.

•Socialism is “any various economic and political theories advocating collective or government ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods…THERE IS NO PRIVATE PROPERTY.”*

•Communism is “a theory advocating elimination of private property: a system in which GOODS ARE OWNED IN COMMON AND ARE AVAILABLE TO ALL AS NEEDED.”*

•Capitalism is “an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are distributed mainly by COMPETITION IN A FREE MARKET.”*

Fellow Americans, Obama seems to be an enemy of the free market. He wants to turn America into a socialistic country, this seen in everything he has done since his inauguration. He not only is trying to kill private ownership, but build government control in every aspect of American life that he can. The humungous bailout bill, the over-the-top budget, his other schemes and plots are mostly designed, not to get money into our flagging economy as he claims, but to turn the USA into a socialist country. THIS, TO ME, IS SCARIER THAN EVEN THE THREAT OF TERRORIST ATTACKS. AND BELIEVE ME, MY FEAR OF ANOTHER ATTACK ON AMERICAN SHORES IS VERY REAL AND VERY CHILLING. Fostering socialism, as Obama does, is an insidious creeping monster that will rob America of our future, our incentive to work, literally our American dream. If what we earn through our own hard work, innovative spirit, and good old American enterprise will then be taken from us with taxes and socialistic laws and given to those who won’t work, what is the point? Let all Americans just sit on our butts and hope the government supports us? THIS IS NOT THE AMERICAN WAY. I PROTEST GROWING SOCIALISM WITH EVERY BONE IN MY BODY AND EVERY THOUGHT IN MY BRAIN. YOU MUST, TOO!

Here is a little tale that you might find fun:

The Little Red Hen by: Jack Langton
2/19/09
“Who will help me plant my wheat? Said the little red hen.

‘Not I,’ said the cow.

‘Not I,’ said the duck.

‘Not I,’ said the pig.

‘Not I,’ said the goose.

‘Then I will do it by myself,’ said the little red hen, and so she did. The wheat grew very tall and ripened into golden grain.

‘Who will help me reap my wheat?’ asked the little red hen.

‘Not I,’ said the duck.

‘Out of my classification,’ said the pig.

‘I’d lose my seniority,’ said the cow.

‘I’d lose my unemployment compensation,’ said the goose.

‘Then I will do it by myself,’ said the little red hen, and so she did.

At last it came time to bake the bread.

‘Who will help me bake the bread?’ asked the little red hen.

‘That would be overtime for me,’ said the cow.

‘I’d lose my welfare benefits,’ said the duck.

‘I’m a dropout and never learned how,’ said the pig.

‘If I’m to be the only helper, that’s discrimination,’ said the goose.

‘Then I will do it by myself,’ said the little red hen.

She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to see. They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share. But the little red hen said, ‘No, I shall eat all five loaves.’

‘Excess profits!’ cried the cow. (Nancy Pelosi)

‘Capitalist leech!’ screamed the duck. (Barbara Boxer)

‘I demand equal rights!’ yelled the goose. (Jesse Jackson)

The pig just grunted in disdain. (Ted Kennedy)

And they all painted ‘Unfair!’ picket signs and marched around and around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.

Then the farmer (Obama) came. He said to the little red hen, ‘You must not be so greedy.’
‘But I earned the bread,’ said the little red hen.

‘Exactly,’ said Barack the farmer. ‘That is what makes our free enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants. But under our modern government regulations, the productive workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and idle.’

And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen, who smiled and clucked, ‘I am grateful, for now I truly understand.’

But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never again baked bread because she joined the ‘party’ and got her bread free. And all the Democrats smiled. ‘Fairness’ had been established.

Individual initiative had died, but nobody noticed; perhaps no one cared…so long as there was free bread that ‘the rich’ were paying for.

EPILOGUE …

… IS THIS A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT?”
