I found this quote over on NealBoortz' site...
"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 Pierce Rogers (September 12, 1931 - November 15, 2005) of Love Worth Finding Ministries, Pastor Emeritus of Bellevue Baptist Church.
And you don't think that under the democrats' pernicious agenda, we're nearing the end of the United States as it was designed to be, a Constitutional republic based on freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility? If we don't elect conservatives in mass numbers in 2010 to control Obama, then our children, if not ourselves, will witness the fall of America as the beacon of freedom and independence in the world. It will become a second-rate, socialist, nanny-State where perpetually whining minorities clamor for government goody-bags provided by the shrinking productive class. Where innovators and risk takers are punished and the shifless, stupid, and lazy are rewarded with the wealth of men better than them.
I weep for the future.
