We have a choice.
If your my age, you remember hearing your grandparents tell stories of the sacrifices that had to be made during World War II. I remember only after my Grandfather passed hearing about some of the horrible ordeals he suffered through in the battles in Okinawa. No generation ever deserved more the title, “The Greatest Generation.”
We now have a task to complete that will be every bit as difficult. We have the challenge of saving our children from the slavery of OUR debt. Our parents put some of this debt on us, but we have the moral obligation to draw a line in the sand, and say that it ends with us.
Some are trying to say that the Governor of Wisconsin and Conservative TEA Party types hates teachers, children, women, and minorities. Really, is that even believable? Those are the ones who fear taking responsibility for our actions and getting away from the status quo.
Right or Left, man or woman, white or black, we have all been lied to. We have been told that we can all have a great life, pile on debt, and expect a retirement without having to do the hard work of saving for ourselves. Somewhere along the line, we convinced ourselves that although it doesn’t mathematically make sense, we deserve, no, we have a right to have these things provided for us. Politicians and unions happily lied to us for power and swept the fact that eventually someone would have to pay, under the rug. They asked for you to give them power and your children’s’ indentured servitude in exchange for a retirement/medicaid/medicare/social security plan.
In reality you were given a minor convenience for YOUR FREEDOM! It is the same concept as a free Google g-mail account. It is not really free. Your cost is just a little bit of your privacy and data. Meanwhile, they can collect more and more data on you by offering other conveniences.
Milton Friedman once said that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Truer words have never been spoken.
The teachers in Wisconsin are being used. Originally the unions represented uneducated blue-collar workers who were trapped in menial labor with no ability to improve their lot in life. That is not the case for these college educated middle class Americans. Even without the unions they have the freedom and ability to change their circumstance. If they cannot live on a teachers wage, they are well-educated and can fill a private sector position making a comparable salary.
The unions care less about the teachers than they do about power and promoting a Socialist Agenda. The NEA has Saul Alinsky‘s book “Rules for Radicals” listed on its website as recommended reading. Saul Alisnsky is a well-known community organizer who dedicated his book to the first radical Lucifer.
The unions were instrumental in stirring up the riots in Egypt, and across the Middle East. They are now trying to spread that discontent here in the US.
Now for a little of the history we were not taught in school.
First, I want to applaud the House Republicans for their attempts at de-funding the progressive agenda including Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is often held up as a heroine of human rights. It would be laughable if she were less sinister of a character. Margaret Sanger was a Eugenicist who believed that the human race could achieve more if we could just keep the less desirable from breeding. Her plan was to eliminate the handicapped, mentally ill, and minorities from the human race. She had spoken at numerous KKK rallies, and eugenics forums. Progressive elitism shaped Hitler’s thoughts and policies during the Holocaust.
To this day Planned Parenthood provides more abortions for minorities because its system is designed to eliminate them. They offer minorities a minor convenience for a seemingly minor price. The really funny thing is you get accused of racism or sexism if you do not support them. What a world…
If our generations stands up, and makes the hard sacrifices. We can be like our Grandparents. We can be the next Greatest Generation. We can be the ones who save future generations from indentured servitude. Make no mistake. It is slavery to force our children to work for our benefit rather than their own. Do you want to be the generation that took the food from our children’s mouths to feed our own? That is not the America I know.
Be the one to get up and act. Don’t sit to wait and see.
