Let’s say I have three daughters who all work. One of them makes more money that the other two. The mother, who I call Democrat, says to the daughter who makes the most money, “give me some of your money so I can give it to your sisters. It’s not fair you have more.”
The dad, I call Republican, says to the daughter, “It’s your money, keep it. If you think your sisters need your money, give it to them.”
The mother and the two sisters decide dad’s proposition isn’t fair. They think the best way to solve this is to take a vote.
The Founding Fathers were worried about this scenario — where you could vote to take someone else’s money or property. It’s going on now in this election.
The social compact has changed from when people worked hard to better themselves and expected little from government to a time where government has pledged to support huge segments of the population on the backs of others. America’s middle class is already being skewered.
You could take every dime from the rich and it would be chump change for what is promised. The only way the government can keep this entitlement scheme going is to take more from the middle class.
We need more people working in the private sector paying into the system so we don’t stoop to voting for other people’s money.
We’ve unleashed the government; it didn’t work. Unleash the private sector and realize opportunity, not dependency.
