A friend sent an email that implied Americans are
afraid of our government. I replied back that I
didn’t believe this to be true because we’re too
busy bickering among ourselves.
Shortly after I replied, the wife shared an email
that says it better than I could and we’ll share
part of it with you. We do not know who wrote it
but do believe it telling.
The definition of the word Conundrum is: something
that is puzzling or confusing.
Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United
States of America:
1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of
the population is subsidized.
2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they
think they are victims.
3. They think they are victims – yet their
representatives run the government.
4. Their representatives run the government – yet
the poor keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have
things that people in other countries only dream
6. They have things that people in other countries
only dream about – yet they want America to be
more like those other countries.
Think about that a moment. The problem is also
compounded, as mentioned earlier, by the fact that
we are a divided country. Add to that the powers
that be have driven businesses to other countries,
taken over banks, our children, our schools, and
are attempting to change our core beliefs.
Those protesters who feel slighted for one reason
or another should remember that our founding
fathers decried we are born equal and not that as
we age we will be equals. Where you are today is
your responsibility, not the governments.
