Normally I would space my contributions longer, however the reaction
to lesson one on the subject is too good to hold back! The first
lesson brought another!!
Second Lesson, Liberal vs.
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
If somebody is unable to understand
THIS explanation, I have serious doubts about their ability to
even function in society, much less run our country!
As the late Adrian Rogers said,
"you cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.."
About: "Still a pro-develoment,
God loving ,Constitution/Bill of Rights, elder citizen."
