There are a lot of poor people out there. But why do they feel entitled to others people hard earned money?
Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, both very liberal Democrats, would love to see an America where everyone is financially equal. At least, that's what they promise, right? If you are poor and struggling the Democrats will 'help' you with things like free Health care. But who does that hurt?
Those with money, that's who. Hillary’s definition of “those with money” means any family earning more that $80,000 a year. Oh, I know...'but they can afford it'. It seems only fair doesn’t it? I mean you're a good person. You DESERVE free health care and since there are people with “buckets” full of money out there why shouldn't they give a little to help you out?
But where does it stop? This Socialist mentality will trickle down into everything. The wealthy are that way because they are driven. They might be too wealth driven. They want the 12-room home, the Escalade, Mercedes and Corvette in their 3-car garage.
But what happens when the Socialist Democrats put their policies in place? All of the rich guy’s motivation is gone. How can he afford such luxuries once he is forced to support the poor? So he closes his business. Why deal with the headaches, the long hours, the time away from his family when he's only going to have the same house and car as everyone else?
So he closes his business. Maybe he owned a big bakery and supplies his area with bread. He shuts it down. His 500 employees are left unemployed. That's more poor people for the rest of the wealthy to support. They finally give up too. That's even more unemployed.
But wait, that bakery is gone. Now the locals need to get bread that's shipped in from far away. The price of bread goes up. Maybe it hits $10.00 per loaf. Who can afford that? Not to mention the farmer who depended on that bakery to buy his grain. Now he's losing money. He has to lay off his workers, too.
But without the grain some other bakeries are forced to shut down. More laid off workers and even less bread. Now bread is $25.00 per loaf. Even that once successful business owner can't afford that.
Yes, Socialism creates financial equality. It creates a country where we are all equally poor! Just remember the newspaper and television images that came out of the old Soviet Union. People were waiting in line for hours to buy bread and toilet paper. It reached the point where the government was forced to supply it. Even the government was unable to keep up with supply and demand.
That was the moment when Ronald Reagan stood up and said, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall". You see, the timing was right. It was time for the USSR to admit their idea of a perfect Socialist nation had failed. Yes, the entire country was financially equal. They all had equally old and torn clothing. They all had equal hunger pains. They all had equal houses crumbling around them.
Do I have an answer? Not entirely. But I know this much. The Democrats idea of creating a Socialist America is absolutely the worst thing we can do. Those who need help should definitely be helped. But the Democrats idea of how to do that puts this very existence of this country in great jeopardy.
