The following is attributed to Patrick Henry. Go to the poor man, ask him what he does; he will inform you, that he enjoys the fruits of his labours, under his own fig tree, with his wife and children around him, in peace and security. Go to every other member of society, you will find the same tranquil ease and content, … These words came in June 1788, that was then, this is now.
The socialist democrats are the democratic party, even the party chair said that socialist democrats are the new face of the democrat party. The runner-up in the democrat primaries for president on the democrat side is a self-proclaimed socialist. A socialist democrat sent an establishment democrat “packing” in the congressional primaries in New York. The democrats still holding office are now “free” to show their true “colors”, the colors of socialism. When, not if, socialism comes to America it will come by way of the ballot box. The socialists have spent years “grooming” future voters to accept socialism, not just to accept socialism but to actually long for socialism.
The socialists have long promoted the entitlement mentality. Listen to the words chosen by politicians and their mouthpieces all of a sudden welfare, welfare of any type, became an entitlement. My question is, Since when did welfare become an “entitlement”?
Years of “grooming” landed us where we are now. Much of and many in society believe they are entitled to “free stuff”. They believe they are entitled to free college tuition, they are entitled to free housing, they are entitled to a paycheck even though they have no job. They feel that they are entitled to what they did/will not earn. They are perfectly content to sit under the fig tree belonging to another. After all that is what they have been told time and time again, they are entitled.
As for me I sit under my own fig tree with my wife enjoying the fruits of our labours. My fig tree would be larger and provide more shade if only the socialists would get from under my tree.
You have no right to that which this house has earned. Be an American go out and start your own fig tree and sit in the shade and enjoy what you provide for yourself. If you provide nothing then that is what you deserve, Nothing.
