Points of view


And then again:

"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, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931

And this fight is just as relevant today as when the above were written 

Where to help and where to take away

Problem is governments cannot give all that they promise nor tax all that they want to

Governments ever growing, ever spending the taxpayers money

Ever pushing into new areas of control

Taxing everything in sight

And still they never have enough

Time they felt the pain of doing without

Time their share of the cake was cut

That balance talked about above is becoming ever harder to achieve
Maybe there never will be a time of equal distribution of wealth
Just a perennial  fight over who takes what
