A Thought on the Economy

“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 . . . . You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.” – Adrian Rodgers

    That is one concise and precise statement! Let us not choose the path of least resistance, but work and be profitable no matter what. The more Americans depend on the government the more control they have and the less freedom there is. The only reason to punish productivity is to grab control as laziness and dependence are encouraged. Let’s not discard the very things that made our nation great!

    The issue is control. If we do not have self-control then we will have government-control.
    Robert Winthorp, an early Speaker of the House of Representatives said, “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or a power without them. Either by the Word of God or the strong arm of man, either by the Bible or the bayonet.”

    Very true, Dad!

    Unfortunately it looks like the agenda of this administration is to take from those who have, those who have worked to give to those who have not. That is what Obama said to Plumber Joe that his intent is to “spread the wealth”. So sad!
