Profound Statement

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 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 the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."* *Adrian Rogers, 1931*

Healthcare problem solved

Obama has the solution to the “healthcare” crisis

Let us review:

During WWII the government froze wages (mistake one, messing with the labor market) the resourceful capitalist needed workers so they provided health care to attract those workers.

In the 1970’s, the government mandated managed health care (mistake two) and started regulating based on special interest buying off congressmen

The current administration states, out loud, “never let a crisis go to waste”

The government attempts to take over health care after being successfull at socializing other markets. (automobile and banking come to mind for starters)

The solution:



This is not partisan POLITICS except that THE GOVERNMENT CREATED THE MESS, NOW GOVERNMENT, GET OUT OF THE WAY AND LET THE FREE MARKET CLEAN UP THE MESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is only one attack on our constitution.
