“Who will help me plant my wheat?” asked the little red hen.
“Not I,” said the cow.
“Not I,” said the duck. The same for the Pig and the Goose.
“I will do it myself.” She said as she went and planted her crop. The wheat grew and ripened.
“Who will help me harvest my wheat?” asked the little red hen.
“Not I,” said the duck.
“Out of my classification,” said the pig.
“I could lose my seniority,” said the cow.
“I would lose my unemployment compensation,” said the goose.
“Then I will do it myself,” said the little red hen, and so she did.
“Who will help me bake the bread?” asked the little red hen.
“That would be overtime for me,” said the cow.
“I’d lose my welfare benefits,” said the duck.
“I’m a drop-out and never learned how,” said the pig.
“If I’m to be the only helper, that’s discrimination,” said the goose.
“I will do it myself,” said the little red hen.
She baked 5 loaves and held them up for all her neighbors to see. They wanted some, and in fact demanded a share, but the little red hen said “No. I will eat all five loaves.”
“Excess profits!” cried the cow. (The cow is Nancy Pelosi)
“Capitalist leach!” cried the duck. (The duck is Barbra Boxer)
“I demand equal rights!” cried the goose. (This is Jessie Jackson)
And Harry Reid the pig, just grunted in disdain. They all painted “unfair” picket signs, and marched around and around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.
Then the farmer, (who is president Obama) came and said to the little red hen, “You must not be so greedy.”
“But I earned the bread,” said the little red hen.
“Exactly,” said Barack the farmer. “That is what makes our free enterprise so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants, but under our modern government regulations the productive workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and idle. And they lived happily ever after, including the little red hen, who smiled and clucked, “I am grateful for now I truly understand.”
Then her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never again baked bread. She joined the party and got her bread for free.
And all the democrats smiled. Fairness had been established. Individual initiative had died, but nobody noticed. Perhaps no one cared because there was free bread that the rich were paying for.

Now we have heard different variations of this story, abut no matter what, they all tell the same story.
We have heard stories of kids in school who had great grades, with others who did lousy. The teacher would grade on the bell curve. You remember those don’t you? Well, on the next test, she would take the highs and the lows, add them together and get the average of the class, and everybody gets the same grade.
The lazy in the class thought this was great, but the ones who worked hard to get the good grades, started thinking there was no reason to work so hard if it wasn’t possible to get the good grades anymore, and the lazy would get the same grades as they did, so, the workers stopped working, and soon the average in the class dropped till everyone was failing.
That my friends is what the liberals idea of socialism is going to do to this country. It is already happening.
Remember in Detroit about a few years ago, when a reporter went and asked some people why they were standing in line, and the woman said, “To get the Obama money.”
The reporter continued and asked, “And where does Obama get the money?” She returned, “From his stash!” More and more people are getting lazy and falling in line with the government dole, like the little red hen did. And what the people like the lady in Detroit do not realize, is that the “Obama money” isn’t his stash. It comes from all of us. For without us, the government has no money.
The little Red Hen, version 2012 shows us what happens when Individual initiative dies because there is no reason to continue with it?
Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer all believe that taxing the rich more will help the nation. But it is proven, and has been proven over and over again that if you tax the rich more, there is less to pay the employees, and when there is less to pay the employees, then there will be fewer of them. Fewer employees means more unemployed, and less money coming into the government. Exactly what is happening now.
No country in the world can survive that. No, not even America. Another reason my friends for taking them all out in November. I know that some of the liberal democrats will survive the election. Not enough people have heard the dangers that they give us. They have not all realized that the troubles we are having now as a nation is caused by runaway government spending and higher taxes. It will take more than one election to get rid of them. It might never happen. But, if we don’t get some adult supervision in Washington D.C., this nation won’t survive much more, as the free nation that our forefathers founded. Mark my words folks.
May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.
