Compassion and Socialism

If you are a conservative you have probably heard that we are uncaring and that we lack compassion. The Almighty dollar is all we care about. I am sure that is true of some conservatives but not the vast majority. If you are a liberal you probably think that your caring and compassion requires you to create a welfare state to give aid to those in need.

Well a Welfare State is just a euphamism for a Socialistic State. A Socialistic State just following the Marxist line of thought. Socialism has been creeping in for decades and it is no accident. We still have many liberties in this great land but I fear that we are going to lose a great deal more in the next four years. The soon to be ruling party is having no qualms in speaking openly about the socialist agenda. They have no qualms in telling us that redistribution of wealth is that best idea since sliced bread.

This nation is filled with good hearted people. I am afraid that too many of those good hearted people vote their concious without understanding the decisions they are making. Fact is that their are many people in need in this country but it is not the role of the government to take care of them. It is OUR role as individuals.

We are going to bankrupt this country and its people. The Bush administration was definitely not fiscally conservation unfortunately but the Obama administration will put Bush's spend mentality to shame.

Thomas Jefferson said:
To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must take our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labors and in our amusements.

If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under pretense of caring for them, they will be happy. The same prudence which in private life would forbid our paying our money for unexplained projects, forbids it in the disposition of public money. We are endeavoring to reduce the government to the practice of rigid economy to avoid burdening the people and arming the magistrate with a patronage of money which might be used to corrupt the principles of our government. . . .

I have read a lot more lately from Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan. They were genuises. It saddens me to see how far our nation has gotten from their ideas. Dems and repubs. :(
