No Truer Words

  • You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
  • You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
  • You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
  • You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
  • You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
  • You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
  • You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

Happy Halloween!

I'm having "Halloween" moments all month long scaring myself half to death thinking that a well-manicured and smooth-talking socialist may make it to the office of the president. Frankly I would rather have the Wicked Witch of the West, who lets us know exactly what she's all about --- scary details and all!

I hadn't planned on talking about politics on this blog, but the case can be made that George Bush's tax economy has made a bunch of us a LOT of money since 2000. Despite the downturns attributed to the greed and power grabs of the left who pushed lenders to offer non-sensical loans to those with no ability to perform, there is hope.

There is hope if enough folks realize that socialism hasn't put any country that has practiced it, into a "fatter" position than the worst economies of the United States. All the socialist European economies including Russia and China aren't even close to the US in it's economic power. Yet socialsim seems to draw some like flies. You know what draws flies, right?

After all is said and done all of our problems and challenges devolve down to the characters of those we put in office. There's 545 people in congress that absolutely control the future of the United States economically. Unfortunately this mostly failed class of people DO control our Destiny on several macro economic levels --- mainly through regulation and taxation gyrations.

It's important that we vote for character-driven people for congress and the white house, because character drives decisions that affect all of us. More immediately and specifically, we have a choice of putting a polished, wealth- spreading socialist clothed as a "tax cutter" ---- or a crusty un-smooth, Viet Nam era fighter clothed as a quasi-conservative into the presidency. I'm pulling for the quasi-conservative. Otherwise I'll just write in, "Wicked Witch".

Maybe if I click my heels I'll get better choices.

Meantime let's vote for honest, character driven people that won't fake us out.

Please vote!
