Why is it so many people want the Government to provide for them?
History has taught me that 13 original colonies were colonized by people who took a leap of faith and settled in a land that was new to them. These people did not wait for a king to provide them with what ever they needed, they took the bull by the horns and made due with what they had. Eventually it was recognized how well they were doing so they got taxed and lost their freedoms. We all know how that turned for our great country. I am not proposing a revolution in that sense, I am proposing that we take our country back by electing people who reflect our values and principles. This is a very peacefull way to change how our country is being run. This task will not be a quick one, it has taken many years to get to this point where government is out of control, it will take many more to get the governement back in control of the people.
We need to get rid of the poor me mentality and replace it with the can do mentality. There was a time when we all thought that we can do anything, unfortunately we now have a lot of people thinking that they hve been wronged and some one needs to take care of them, Governement.
I think a lot of our problems can be solved by having self respect and indepence.
