What does your promise of freedom offer to the lazy, immoral people who hate working and condone theft? Your call for hard work and responsibility will earn you two pounds of squat in the Obama-Age. All it takes is a blithe, "I paid into the system," or, "rich people can afford it," to justify a life slothful thievery.
Americans of all ages are bouncing down Europe's well-trodden path to bondage, with a death-grip on their entitlement checks.
This is one way to respond. There are other ways, and we collectively don’t have to choose one or the other. We can respond as if “Politics are national” and we can also respond as if “Politics is local”. Whatever we do will be largely portrayed as a losing effort. The last thing we should do (actually it’s something we’ve already done) is to attempt something large, while expecting immediate *permanent* positive results. “Well, did we win?” “No”. “Darn! When does the Super Bowl air?”
This is a marathon. If all someone will happily participate in is a sprint, then that person will be happier staying home. Not everyone in this country has our basic mindset, and may not ever have it.
We need to use our assets to survive in the next few years. “Shall we use our velvet glove or our iron fist?” Put the iron fist inside the velvet glove. This isn’t going to be easy. I’m tired of hearing things like “It’s over. It didn’t work”.
“What does your promise of freedom offer to the lazy, immoral people who hate working and condone theft?”
Absolutely NOTHING...which is what they deserve.
Which line will people go to?
By the way on the back of the 2nd sign it says “until we run out”
