Just a little something I recently received and decided to share with everyone. No it isn’t my creation and no I can not find the author. If you can prove the origin, I will give credit to that person.
Unemployment rate for the past 16 years. Keep this in mind.
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s (now Bernie Sanders’s) socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s (now Bernie Sanders’s) plan”.. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that. These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
Can you think of a reason for not sharing this?
Neither could I.
Redistribution of wealth For the Ignorant
Simply put. It’s taking someone else’s money, and giving it to someone who is not entitled to it.
Redistribution of wealth means …. the poor guy just got an income… so it will be taxed. as an income
and once a poor man, always a poor man, so it will be spent fast.
lets call that sales tax.
now what do you have?
still a bunch of poor people. a government showing “hey look it’s been a good year we’re almost out of debt”.
while the guy who was richer, still has his money because it’s not new to him and he saves… that’s how he got rich.
so people see he has more money than him and will protest that not enough was taken away. so his money gets divied up a little more.. and a little more and in the end we’re all broke. no one remembers gutting the guy who earned his money they just realize they “weren’t given enough”.
