I heard a perfect analogy of the direction our president along with his minions in Washington are leading us too. From a Rabbi on the Glenn Beck radio show on the Blaze Network gave this definition between “capitalism” or the ability to “make money” and “collectivism/materialism” that the liberal left wants for us.
Rabbi Daniel Lapin the author of the book “Thou shall Prosper” said that the idea of collectivism that the liberals believe, means that we are nothing more than sophisticated animals which really makes us no different from Cows on a farm. Belittling what man really is.
Collectivism/Materializm means that the they strive to make victims. So the biggest opportunity of Collectivism is a “competition for victimhood” and because of this, all this “stimulates is envy.” Collectivism is not this all good ideal where people help each other to get what they need. All it is, is taking from the ones who will work hard to succeed, and then giving to the ones who won’t. This gives NO INCENTIVE to succeed. If you have no incentive to succeed, there is no incentive to succeed so more and more people fail and end up on welfare, which then goes broke cause no one is making any money. Socialism, which is collectivism usually lasts about 7 years before it starts to fail.
Whereas, capitalism or “Making Money” the opportunity is for Making money so you can be of service to others. You get rewarded for success by making money and then having the means to help others in the process. Here folks are his lists:
From each according to his needs, so the more you need the more you get from the system.
1. Competition for Victimhood
2. Stimulates Envy
3. Ambition, community organizers/politics
4. Greatest virtue is EQUALITY *earned or not*
5. Result is static competition, or poverty
1. Competition for service. If Bill Gates or Steve Jobs hadn’t made all the money they did with their ideas, then we wouldn’t be better off today because they worked to give people what they needed and wanted, and therefore made people happy. NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. So, it then
2. Stimulates success/achievement
3. Ambition making riches and having respectability
4. Greatest virtue is freedom
5. Result is dynamic growth.
See the difference between the way the liberals work and the way we Conservatives, or Traditional Americans are working? The direction we have been voting with the upper echelon of our government is heading us one way, *collectivism* and the way that our conservative values are, are not compatible and the first is NOT sustainable. PERIOD! And it is time that we realized this or this country will continue to decline till it is nothing more than a bunch of victims that are living in complete and abject poverty. Got it?
I hope so cause the Collectivism direction is the direction that Obama and the left are leading us. To complete and abject poverty, with NO WAY to get out, while they live high off the hog on the money that we made for them. It is no more than that folks. Still want to vote for Obama and the left now? I hope not. Cause America’s future, and that includes our Children’s future depends on us refusing to kick the can down the road any more like Obama wants to do. By doing what we have been proposing, he is telling us that we are destroying the children’s future and America’s future, when just the exact opposite of that is true. He is lying to us, and any politician that tells us I am wrong here, is lying to us also, and deserves nothing more than being ousted from office forever.
God Bless America
God Bless our freedoms
God Bless us to continue to fight against the left….
