WE NOW HAVE THE GOVERNMENT WE DESERVE…

As Thomas Jefferson said, “The government you elect is the government you deserve.”
Another quote I came across which sums up today’s government in one paragraph:
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
―Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931-2005
Although I didn’t vote for Obama and his sideshow sidekick, a majority of Americans did. As a result, we now have the government we deserve. I wanted to vote for the best man for the job, but he wasn’t a candidate so I went with McCain. There’s more corruption in government now than there ever was, yet they’re not held accountable. Obviously, those who make the laws are above them, which is why so many run for public office. They’re spending billions of dollars that we don’t even have. If the government is supposed to be much smarter than we are, why is it that we’ve been able to live within a budget and they haven’t? Instead of asking us, Obama is depending upon members of his cabinet who don’t even pay their taxes and who live lifestyles way beyond their own means how to balance the budget. Does this make any sense to you? Our National Debt is now $10.7 trillion. Add to that a growing government and you have a ticking time bomb.
A lot of you who voted for Obama are ridiculing how he’s been handling the presidency. Maybe you should have done your homework before making such a major decision. Our forefathers are probably turning in their graves at the way we’re being governed today. I’ll end this blog with a few quotes…
"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
"Whenever a man has cast a longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct."
"The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too."
