My concern with this election is certainly reflective in the 2008 election. Some might say we have raised one generation of individuals who don’t get it. I would say we have raised two generations who don’t.
What they don’t get is capitalism. They don’t get it takes individual effort to succeed. And they don’t get the government is not the answer. Too many in these two generations have been taught the government is the answer to our economy. They have also been taught the government is there to take care of the individual from birth to death. Those of us who are firm believers in capitalism and the individual, disagree.
The problem is our system. Our system is immoral. There is no morality in the government taking money literally by force and giving it out to those based on their needs.
Our country was not founded on and should not be modeled after “from those based on their abilities, to others based on their needs.” There is nothing moral or ethical in this model. And that my friends is the model these two generations have been taught and convinced works.
Social security is immoral. Welfare, medicare and medicaid are all immoral. And no where in our history were their riots by our population for any of these programs. These programs were thrust on our population by politicians who believed in the “from those based on their abilities, to others based on their needs.”
So, where does this put us in this election? I am not convinced even after 4 years of the Obama Regime’s failures these two generations understand we will lose this country if we re-elect him. These two generations are convinced the policies of this Regime are the way to go. And worse, they firmly believe this is the direction this country should take. They do not see the before mentioned governmental programs as immoral. In fact, the Left and Progressives look to themselves as the moral compass of this country. They believe they are the ones with the morals.
These two generations believe it and the Conservatives have basically acquiescence to this very position, the Left is the moral authority in this country. Both are wrong. Until the Right takes back the moral compass of this country. And until the Left realizes they are not, we are doomed to continue to head down the path of the “from those based on their abilities, to those based on their needs.”
