you can take the girl out of the country but…
you can’t take the country out of the girl. I am a country girl so I should know, right? My point is that each and every human being on the planet is an individual because that is how we were designed at creation. When push comes to shove we will all instinctively respond by protecting the people and things that are important to us as individuals.
I bring this up because I watch too much political debate and read too many news stories. It does not matter which side of any given issue is being debated, left or right, Democrat or Republican, they all vehemently defend their side of the issue being argued. I find that those who defend socialism are just as individualistic as those defending capitalism. Socialists will defend to the death what they see as their individual right to benefit from the labor of someone else and have government pick winners and losers, while capitalists do the same to defend their right to keep what they have earned and decide to whom or what cause they want to share with.
The two ideologies are diametrically opposed. There is no area for compromise. The thing the Socialist never understands is that individuals will ultimately cut their losses, even the Socialist, as a means of protecting themselves and the things they have. There is no reason to go out and work your butt off or risk what you earn to grow more successful, if at the end of the day you have no choice but to hand it over to be distributed to people or causes that you don’t agree with. Charity begins at home, from the heart of the giver. Government has no heart and does not recognize the heart of any individual. The shared courtyard will never be swept…..
Over and over I see big government Socialists demand the rich pay their fair share. The 1% already pay upwards of 70% of all the revenue government gets from the taxpayer. So how much is fair? These same people are in that top 1% and they got there because they or their parents/grandparents, etc., participated in the only system ever that allows the poorest of the poor to become rich, Capitalism. Why then would they deny others that same opportunity? The answer is power. The power to limit participation in the only system that works, protecting their own ability to grow even more wealthy by reducing the number of players and at the same time convince people that they cannot make it on their own. It is a very sad to watch man’s inhumanity to man and to see how many more people are willing to enslave themselves for the crumbs that fall from the table of the Socialist Progressive elites.
I thought how ironic it was to read that people attending a lecture being given by Eric Holder on the unfairness of requiring a voter ID had to show their ID to get into hear him. I have lost confidence in the electoral process. We are being duped left and right.
This week Obama is asking for the debt ceiling to be raised another $1.2TRILLION and unless Congress rejects it by January 14th it will automatically happen. Congress will still be out of town on January 14th…….some in Congress are calling for the elimination of the debt ceiling altogether?
There are so many battles being waged against the American people that it boggles my mind, but what is even more disturbing is that way too many of us don’t even know it. Why?….because we are busy being individuals, trying to watch out for our own best interest and that of our families while that very ability is being systematically taken out of our hands.
Too big to fail, we are all familiar with that phrase by now. Consider this, when the USA can no longer service even the interest on its debt like Greece or Italy who will bail us out?
