In GOD We Trust

Monday, January 18, 2010



This is probably the 5 best sentences you'll ever read.. This
is one paragraph that should be in every book in every school room in
every city in every state in our great Union. Our educators should make
a lesson plan on this one statement and beat these words into every
head in every class in every state in these United States of America .

"You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating
the wealthy out of prosperity. 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 the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply
wealth by dividing it."

- by Adrian Rogers in 1931

    Wow! That is a mouthful! And so true. And it was written in 1931.

    And IN GOD WE TRUST.... I also agree students need to absolutely know this!

    An interesting quote - I agree to some extent, but I feel strongly that those blessed with abundance, should assist those less fortunate, out of human concern - I live in an area of conspicuous consumption - a dastardly attitude, given the want in this world - surely a direct passage to Hell, if there be one!
    The Right Wing would have the Big Business control everything, the Left Wing would have everyone on the Dole - where is personal responsibility, for the rich and the poor?
