A Socialist Government


America is quickly becoming a socialist government {a government that distributes things equally}.  Socialists would have us believe that America was similar to Calcutta before socialism started "fixing" America.  They feel that if there is free health care for everyone, free public education, free food, free a lot of things that would contribute to equality, our society would be much better.

America has never been close to Calcutta. We were built on the principles of hard work and integrity. Hard work is good for people. Getting things for free hurts people. You give your children too many things without them working for it and they will grow up spoiled. The same exact thing happens when you give adults things for free without earning it.

The poor in America are richer than most other people in the world! If there were truly people starving to death we would see it on television. I would much more prefer people continuing to be rewarded for hard work and able to keep a lot of their money so they could decide how they spend and give their money instead of a big, inefficient government that is almost bankrupt.

One leader in France wants to tax the wealthy 90% of their income. What is going to motivate anyone to work?   So answer this question for me any of you Socialists out there, when does taxation become robbery???

When the Pilgrims first landed in America, they tried socialism but it didn't work. It mattered not if you worked hard or not. Everyone got the same, so there was no motivation to work hard. They quickly changed to private property and it worked great. Those that worked hard were rewarded and the lazy were not.

A society built upon biblical principles works.  Just like a marriage, a family, and a church built upon biblical principles works.  God made us.  He knows what is best.  As America gets farther and farther away from those principles, the worse we will become.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
Proverbs 29:2
