Websters dictionary defines altruism as the principle or practice of unselfish concern for or devotion to the welfare of others.
"If I give a man a fish, he eats for a day..."
How many times do we hear about giving to the less fortunate? How many times are we asked to give back to the community? When a sucessful businessman decided to give his wealth away, we applaud him. It seems a good thing to do, doesnt it? We are told by our parents and by our churches that we should share, that we should clothe the naked, feed the hungry and take care of widows and orphans. I submit that these are good, Christian things to do. I do believe that God wants me to help the needy. There always have been and always will be those who cannot take care of themselves.
"If I teach a man to fish, He eats forever...."
This is the way we have been taught to be....Good, Kind, Generous. They are good things-Strengths I believe....But these strengths are being taken and bent to be used against us. We are allowing the Government to take over the job that God has given to us...the individual. Shamefully, Robin Hood is a timeless hero. He took from the rich and gave to the poor. That is how our government wants to be seen. If your neighbor has a deadly disease and does not have the money to pay for the medicine or the surgury needed to cure him, would it be a nice thing for you to pay for his cure? Well, yes, it would be very nice of you to do such a thing, I think everyone would agree. does your nieghbor's need for a cure lay a claim to your financial ability? The State is saying that you should pay for the cure, They are coming to knock on your door and take it from you so that they can help that person who is in need, Is this right? Is this constitutional? Is it even moral? NO we must look at the individual rights of man over the STATE. While we agree that there are needs to be met, when has government ever been the answer? Doesnt the state have a vested interest in keeping as many people under a protective wing as possible? When does the state ever tell a person that it is time for them to provide for his or her own needs? I also want to say this. Sometimes the State does teach a man to fish,
BUT LET ME PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER
give a man a fish and you feed him for a day
teach a man to fish and you feed him forever
free a man to decide
if he would farm, fish or hunt and that man no longer needs your help
The socialist wants to play on your guilt, wants to take your money, wants to make it fair...but most of all...they want to rule you
Stand on the principle, dont argue the cost, or if the state is trying to do good....But above all...you must stand. Funny thing about socialism...sooner or later, we have run out of the rich to pay for everything
We must stand against the Ideas of socialism or progressiveism or communism and not allow ourselves or our representatives to be bogged down in the deal making...There are lines that we as Americans should never cross. , look over your shoulder
Its time to turn this republic around
