I have a video, brought to me by a local farmer which shows a theft from his roadside fruit stand. The video shows a woman and her kids (or grand kids) pulling up to a roadside fruit stand owned by the farmer and quite literally emptying the shelves. She did not pay for the fruit, pumpkins, gourds, or vegetables. Worse than that, one of the kids could not have been more than ten years old.
This isn’t saying she was a Democrat, or affiliated with a party at all, but it speaks to the culture which breeds an indifference to the hardships endured by the producers of this country to craft an honest living. When someone can roll up with the trunk empty and ready to receive quite literally the fruits of someone else’s labor, and demonstrate to the kids that it is OK, then we have gone too far down a road that should not be traveled. It disrespects the time and energy someone has placed tilling the field, breaking a sweat, and earning a wage. Has theft become OK?
Does not redistribution of taxpayer money engender the same attitude? For if it is wrong for an individual who is hungry, to determine that someone’s goods setting unattended on the roadside can be taken without conscience, then does it not follow it is wrong for a government in the “peoples” stead to do so?
Socialist elements such as those firmly entrenched in the politics of the Democrat party, as well as breaking new ground in the Republican party have a troubling effect on social behavior norms as I see it. When it becomes standard fare in political discourse to describe which entitlements will go to whom “for the sake of decency,” it also then becomes standard to ignore the reality of which pockets get picked to accomplish those good works. Consider these folks below..
Obama supporter paying pizzas to people who bring in McCain yard signs. Their own.. yeah.. right.
Kwame Kilpatrick, an Obama supporter, who stole roughly $9 million from Detroit’s treasury to pay for his defense. This resulting from a scandal and LYING.
What is it that gives them the right to attach their burdens to someone else’s bank account? Did not the people in Detroit who pay taxes deserve a little more respect than that? How could they get it? Government assumes the bottomless wallets of the working, and the endless hunger of the needy to keep its power.
It is called Socialism.
Now, The theft is more than money alone. It might well be an election. “Money is Passe” seems to be the common thread as traditional mass media outlets in an obviously skewed manner inject their support to Obama because of the “historical” element and chance to be participants in its creation. Our votes are being stolen by fraudulent voting methods from organizations once assisted by their idol candidate Barack Obama.
Much of the public has been inured to the theft commonly associated with big government, big media, and big dreams. We can only HOPE someone calls the cops.
