Every so often I have something come through my email that is really worthwhile and doesn’t need to be forwarded to twenty people so all my dreams come true and I have good luck forever. This was a story about catching wild pigs. I will summarize it here and I am sorry that I cannot give the author credit because there was no name on the story. There was an exchange student in a college class who had discomfort in his back from a lodged bullet he received while fighting a communist government. He told the professor a story about how wild pigs are caught. Free corn is placed in the forest to train the pigs to come to this spot. Each week as the pigs come to eat the free corn a side of a fence is put up until finally the pigs are locked in a cage. They don’t try to escape because they have been accustomed to the free corn and no longer know how to forage in the wild anymore. The student said that this represented socialism/Marxism.
Thomas Jefferson said, “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.” As we watch our government continue to grow and expand free programs like welfare, subsidies on commodities, stimulus checks, prescription drugs and etcetera, we can see this move of the people towards being caged because they become accustomed to the free stuff. Then regulation comes in and the people accept it to keep getting the free stuff. Before long the people forget what freedom is. We see this in China and now again in Russia.
Barack Obama is promising to furthur this free corn and John McCain is not much better. As Michelle Obama tells us that we will never be able to go back to what we were before Barack becomes president and that we must all share our slice of pie and we hear Barack Obama tell us where we can set our thermostats at, we see a future for America that leads us sleathily towards Marxism. The Republicans have set the tone through the Bush Administration with phone tapping and increasing government programs.
We are in trouble America. I hope and pray that the people wake up before we move further towards the precipice and then finally over. It was not so many years ago that FDR and Woodrow Wilson started this march. What the Founding Fathers and early Americans were able to maintain for over 150 years, our generations have destroyed in less than 80. This is a year when the election matters more than ever. And no one is paying attention to any other candidates besides Obama and McCain. Listen conservatives, if McCain is so great for us then why won’t Bobby Gindal allow himself to be named as a Vice Presidential running mate.? He doesn’t believe in a McCain adminstration and doesn’t want to be tied to it so that one day he can become President – probably the best we may have in my generation.
