You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it//

This teacher is truly a genius!
As the late Adrian Rogers said, “you cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

I got this in an email from my sister. It’s definitely worth the read.

This man is truly a genius!

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before,
but had once failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”.
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A…
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.
The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.
As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D!
No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

Could not be any simpler than that. (Please pass this on)  Remember, there is a mid-term election in 2010!


Grievances Against the Government…What are yours?

Following a statement declaring our rights to govern ourselves and stating where those rights come from, the Declaration of Independence enumerates a long list of grievances which the people had against their government in England.  I think that it is time that we write another list of grievances which we, the people, have against our current government.

I have begun the list here with a few of my items.  I know that this is but a small fraction.  If you have items feel free to add them by responding in the comments.  Perhaps we will then compile them in the form of a petition to our government and send it around for signatures.  Add your items to the list!!

Grievances which the people of United States have against their Government:

  1. It has extorted personal property in order to give it to others through taxation for the intent of redistributing wealth.
  2. It has perpetrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history in the name of Social Security by extorting funds from the population claiming these would be held for retirement all the while absconding these funds to squander on political pork projects to enhance its own power while expecting future generations to cover the void.
  3. Members of all branches have violated their oath to uphold and defend the constitution by enacting and signing laws that are not constitutional.
  4. The executive branch has appointed officers without the consent and approval of the Senate.
  5. The executive branch has initiated legislation, an action not enumerated to the executive branch.
  6. It has established bureaucracies with authority beyond any single branch of government,  ie. the separation of powers enumerated in the constitution has been ignored and a single bureaucracy has been empowered to make rules, enforce rules and levy punishments without due process.  Numerous bureaucracies have been established with this power.
  7. It has usurped the rights of states by subverting the interstate commerce clause. {This is a biggie folks…the government has gotten away with so much  nonsense just by purporting that it falls under this clause}.
  8. It has usurped the rights of states by assuming upon itself powers not enumerated in the constitution which are therefore “reserved to the states and to the people”.
  9. The Legislative Branch has allowed the Executive branch to usurp powers from it.
  10. The Judicial Branch has usurped Legislative powers.
  11. It has allowed the establishment of a central bank, not authorized by the constitution.
  12. It has violated the constitution by subverting personal property rights through enacting environmental laws which prohibit the free use of ones own property.
