“Who do we want to be?,’’ Mrs. Obama asked. “Will we be a country where success is limited to a few at the top? This country is strongest when we are all better off.”
Let’s talk about this idea. Who is going to answer in the negative about this statement right? I mean, really, Only a person that hates his fellow man would say that they didn’t want all the people to benefit from society. right? Let’s go past where the progressives can focus. And see if they really have the best interest of the masses in mind as they claim. Now I’m not saying that they don’t deeply care about their fellow man. I just wanna see whether or not their concern is amiss in its focus.
They will say that those who are downtrodden can’t pick themselves up on their own, that we must reach down and lift them from their suffering to our level by our concern, our compassion, yea verily, our charity. Can I get an amen up in heuh?
Now where was I? Oh yea, My contention is that it is not the hand up that they need. What they need is a system that allows them to , by their own effort, trials, failures, and successes rise from the proverbial mire to stand on the road to success, and , by virtue of their new found self image, do whatever is necessary to go forward and be all they can be.
It is not that I don’t want to help everybody in the world; it is that I recognize an eternal truth. Man’s/woman’s character will grow as is necessary to achieve success in life as they make the personal effort to fight through the vicissitudes of life. It cannot spontaneously appear by receiving doles from the whole. Life is more than the car in the drive the shoes on your feet. It is the strength of the character developed in the recesses of the soul.
Therein lies the weakness of the progressive ideology. To receive without having done anything to warrant the reception of goods and services destroys self image, destroys motivation, and destroys character. Individuals without the characteristics necessary for success are the result of the social safety net progressives have given as their legacy to the United States of America.
I fear lest this ideology becomes the majority. If it continues U.S. citizens will not have what it takes anymore. Neither will we able to lead the world nor take care of itself. You and I must stand for this truth and fight on every hand the progression of the ideology of slavery. Yes, I said slavery. For slavery to the government is the result of the handouts given without any effort to be worthy of it by one’s work.
You know the story of wild animals after having become accustomed to the free food given them , were not able to fend for themselves when the human masters disappeared. Such is the fate when the money of the rich runs out.
It, therefore, is good to struggle, to suffer, to fail, to not win a prize. If we do not we become helpless and hapless. We as a nation should be standing by encouraging with our voices, our compassion, our pats on the back to those who are struggling to achieve the dreams they have conjured in their minds. Only then will we stand arm in arm and declare, “Free at last; Free at last.” Great God in Heaven we are free at last.
I AM SURE THAT THE GOOD PEOPLE OF AMERICA WOULD OPEN THEIR HEARTS AND THEIR POCKETBOOKS IF THE GOVERNMENT WOULD GET OUT OF THE WAY AND LET US, IN OUR CHURCHES, FULFILL THE SECOND GREAT COMMANDMENT
”love thy neighbor as thyself.”
