People are right, there are two Americas; the America that works and the America that doesn’t, The America that contributes and the America that doesn’t. It’s not the haves and the have not’s, it’s the doer and the don’ts. The givers and the takers
Some see it differently, some choose wisely and take responsibility for their actions and have a far greater chance of success. Those who choose foolishly and act irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.
If you choose to drop out of high school and don’t get an education you are likely to have a different outcome and income than someone who gets a diploma whether it is high school or college. If you choose to use or sell drugs your life outcome will most likely be negative. If you choose to get pregnant at an early age without a husband your life outcome may not be good.
This whole thing is not about income inequality. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elections. It’s about a political party that loves power more than our country. President Obama said the rest of his term is dedicated to fighting Income Inequality. He noted that some people make more than other people, some have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s just not right.
Democrats have not helped their followers; they have enslaved them into a culture of dependence and entitlement. Teaching them that they are victims and to be angry. If you have your children out of wedlock, life is apt to take one direction; you have them within a marriage life is apt to go in another direction. Almost always our life’s destination is determined by the decisions we make.
If you go to college and study hard, you will most likely make more than someone who drops out of school and claims to be a victim of prejudge. Obama’s idea that you reduce income inequality by taking the rewards from the successful to feed those who have made bad choices is thus sparing them the consequences of their choices.
We are all free men and women in a free society where our choices lead to different outcomes. This is the freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. But we always have the option to get up and try again. The Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort. They forget the simple Law of the Harvest “… as ye sow, so shall ye reap”… today updated to, “The harder you work, the more you get.”
If those who achieve are punished by taking their rewards and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society, entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society. Barack Obama seeks a society in which the government takes from the successful to give to those who do practically nothing and produce nothing.
America is not divided by the differences in our dreams and ambitions; it is divided by the differences in the amount of effort we are willing to expend. It’s a false philosophy to say one man or women’s success causes another’s failure. This is simply not true in our country but what Obama offered and Hillary supports is a long term formula for failure. This is the democratic philosophy that brought us todays Detroit and so many other failing cities.
Our success is dependent on us, not the government but us, we either give up or get up. The choice is ours not the governments. Let’s stand up and turn it around before it is too late.
