Should the Government be Doing More?

For those who believe that our Federal Government should be doing MORE to help the poor and underprivileged in America, I have compiled a list of demands to be presented to the President, and Congress, outlining what the Government can do...

We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunities for employment and earning a living.

The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and for the good of all. Therefore, we end to the power of the financial interests.

We demand profit sharing in big business.

We demand a broad extension of care for the aged.

We demand...the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of the national, state and municipal governments.

In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our entire system of public education...We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents...

The government must undertake the improvement of public health -- by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth.

[We] combat the...materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of The Common Good Before the Individual Good .

Now, before you go and start passing this around as MY idea, I think I should reveal the source of this list. This information came from the Nazi party platform adopted at Munich, February 24, 1920;Der Nationalsozialismus Dokumente 1933-1945, edited by Walther Hofer, Frankfurt am Main: Fischer Bucherei, 1957, pp. 29-31.

Now, we have all seen what happens when these ideas are take to their final conclusion. It turns into a class warfare, pitting the "poor" against the "rich" with no regard for how either of the two got into their situations.

I, for one, do not believe that the "rich" should be hated for being rich. Most have worked hard, and sacrificed many things in their lives to be successful, and deserve to enjoy the "fruits of their labor". Most poor people have taken the easy way out, not furthered their education, not worked hard, and are in the situation they are in, because they don't have any personal drive, and are waiting for someone to take care of them. Instead of punishing success and achievement, and rewarding laziness and failure, doesn't it make more sense to reward those who strive to better themselves, and to punish those who want to live of of others? We need to reform our welfare system, and make it impossible for someone to sit at home and live off of others. If a personis receiving Gov assistance, they MUST be made to either attend job training, or be enrolled in a work program. If the welfare recipient is recalcitrant, their benefits must be removed.

Having more than someone else is the result of Excellence, not theft. and having less is not because you were stolen from. Work is rewarded, sloth is punished! That is the moral and truly compassionate way.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. TEACH a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime!

If you believe that I am right, please pass this on to others. Tweet it, Share it, and comment on it!

Don't just complain about how unfair the world is, and how badly our government needs to change, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

And I Ask Again....

Do YOU Have the Courage of Your Convictions?
