Too many freebies
I was taught that when the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria landed on the eastern shore of the U.S. there was no one to meet them but Indians. No food stamps, no Section 8 housing and no free medical care.
Our Country thrived for several hundred years, and then the politicians started promising more and more free things.
The problem was and is how to pay for them?
This began class warfare. If you had worked hard and saved, you were supposed to be willing to share your wealth with the less fortunate who chose not to work
Correct me if I am wrong, but that sounds more like the communist system of government.
My late wife and I worked very hard during our 52 years and eight months together. We managed to accumulate a modest amount of wealth. I will be like Charlton Heston when he was president of the NRA. From these cold dead hands will they take what I have earned, through hard work. Fifty percent of Americans pay no taxes. Republicans and Democrats alike have been promising more and more freebies. Now it is pay up time and their only solution is to tax the people who have worked hard all of their lives. I believe there will be more Christians like me who’ll help the needy, but will draw the line on supporting those too lazy to work. James H. Addy Decatur, Mississippi
