Thank you for waking a sleeping giant. Who is that sleeping giant?
Well, let’s see couldn’t that be “We The People”? that have been “Asleep at the proverbial Wheel”. Oh yes it is!
Mr. you have awakened the American people from their Rip Van Winkle stupor and for that I want to thank you. The only good you have accomplished is this “awakening”.
Yes, that is exactly who you have awakened; Americans that still believe the American dream becomes a reality only when an individual realizes that “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” can only be achieved through personal effort and self sacrifice of taking the high road as opposed to the easy way, But you know what? EVENTUALLY ALL THE EASY WAY OUTS have run out. Yep, you folks have hit the “end of the line”, you know “run them in the ground” so to speak. Just as you are doing every small business owner that is the back bone of America as well as the average American.
So I would like to share several books I’ve read lately which provided much wisdom as to the nature of men as well as the nature of the self serving man and what his ignorance of true freedom and what true freedom really means.
The lazy, self serving man does not care about freedom; oh yes he wants freedom but willingly gives it up for a moment of temporary enjoyment or rather instant gratification. Fearfully reminds me of what Benjamin Franklin often said,
“Those who would give up Essential Liberty
to purchase a little Temporary Safety,
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
Temporary gratification i.e., short lived enjoyment is equal to government proping up of her citizens as opposed to assisting her to create jobs to employ the unemployed thus assisting American citizens to subsist and thrive on their own.
I am not against temporary help, but what has happened is neither temporary nor sustainable. Instead of assisting American small business owners to create jobs Mr. Obama you are punishing them. Instead of providing incentives to expand our businesses, improve our businesses, or create businesses hence hiring or increasing the employee base we are being penalized at an ever increasing rate, thank you Mr. Obama.
Some of these authors and books are but not limited to:
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter written in 1849 and I quote from the book, men that may have lost jobs, fotunes, etc. “look wistfully about in quest of support external to themselves…Waiting for the strong arm of their uncle (Uncle Sam)” (to prop them up and sustain them, hence removing their drive for any future external employment or the will to work and be a productive citizen).
Paul Bunyan, The Pilgrims Progress written in 1678 and I reference from the book, Christian on his journey of truth & wisdom to rid himself of life’s burdens encounters 3 men asleep with shackles on, Simple, Sloth, and Presumption. Christian attempted to awaken them so they could flee imminent danger warning their predicament was akin to being asleep atop a ships rigging to which they replied, I see no danger, Just a little more sleep, Every tub must stand upon it’s own bottom then they all went back asleep. Christian also met Formality and Hypocrisy as they entered by climbing over the wall ILLEGALLY. Being questioned by Christian, Why didn’t you come in at the gate? Only Thieves and Robbers climb over the wall to enter the path. Formality and Hypocrisy answered “what does it matter how we get into the pathway, if we are in, we are in. Christian answers the Lord of the way already considers you thieves so I doubt you’ll be found worthy at the end of the Way. You came in without his discretion, you will go without his mercy.
M. Scott Peck, The Road Less Traveled written in 1978, I quote from the book”Whenever we seek to avoid the responsibility for our own behaviour, we do so by attempting to give that responsibility to some other individual or organization or entity. But this means we then vie away our power to that entity, be it “fate”, or “society” or the government or the coroporation or our boss. It is for this reason that Erich Fronmm so aptly titled his study of Nazism and authoritarianism, Escape from Freedom. Folks to relinquish our power, OUR FREEDOM simply because we are tired, or just too lazy to persevere is just moronic. Don’t do it.
George Orwell, Animal Farm written in 1945 “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” Another quote from Orwell, “…life would go on as it had always gone on–that is, badly.” You see folks, this is exactly what Dear Leader wants for you, is planning for you. Whilst he and family take extravagant vacactions on the tax payers dime.
Ayn Rand, Anthem 1938, The powers to be are so worried about anyone striving to be exceptional or even above average the elitist class literally beats them down. Everyone is automatically told what their lot in life will be (where the highest IQ is forced to be a trash collector and the lowest IQ may be assigned a council position), sorta like what is emerging onto Americans from Washington, D.C. and the SHEEPLE are bowing down drinking the kool aid and asking for more.
Sound familiar? Strange how authors up to three hundred years ago understood the error of always looking for the easy way. I don’t know about you but my mother and father always told me that anything worth having or working towards takes effort, personal effort and perseverance. Our hopes and dreams are attainable but they will not be handed to us on a silver platter but instead must be the product of hard work and sacrifice. The sweat off my brow and not my brothers’ (figuratively speaking).
You, Obama have single handedly stifled creativity and free will of the American people while crushing the hopes and dreams of nearly every entrepreneur and nealy every new student straight out of College with a degree, and the millions of Americans that have already lost their jobs.
Obama says, SHUT UP AND DRINK THE KOOL AID!
