We worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. We did this, not because we did not have the right to such help, but in order to make ourselves a model for you to follow. For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: ‘If a man will not work, he shall not eat.”
2 Thessalonians 3:8b-10
Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
This is what separates Democrats from Republicans…
Democrats believe in Unions and are adamant about them.
Republicans believe in freedom of choice to choose unions.
Democrats believe in abortion as a right of every woman.
Republicans believe that on-demand abortion is murder and a sin against God and mankind.
Democrats want to spend money we don’t have on green energy (wind, solar, etc.) that is not yet cost efficient.
Republicans want to spend money on energy that is available at this point in time.
Democrats want strict gun control (not understanding that bad guys will be able to get any gun they want)
Republicans don’t want anyone to tread on their rights to bear arms.
PLEASE HEED THE WISE WORDS OF OUR FOREFATHERS AND PRESIDENTS.
“One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project.. Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it.”
— Ronald Reagan — President Ronald Reagan, Sept. 28, 1981
Government is not the solution, it’s the problem. –Ronald Reagan
Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.
— Ronald Reagan
Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. — Ronald Reagan
“The United States is unique because we are an empire of ideals.” –Ronald Reagan
America is a Nation with a mission – and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace – a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.” — George W. Bush
“Each time someone stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, they send forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” –Robert F. Kennedy Cape Town, June 6th 1966
“Fear not the path of truth for the lack of people walking on it.” –Robert F Kennedy
Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose. — Lyndon B. Johnson
We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles. — Jimmy Carter
“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.” — George Washington
“The liberty enjoyed by the people of these states of worshiping Almighty God agreeably to their conscience, is not only among the choicest of their blessings, but also of their rights.” — George Washington, to the Annual meeting of Quakers, September 1789.
“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” –George Washington
The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government. — George Washington
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. –John Adams
“It is the duty of all men in society, publicly, and at stated seasons, to worship the SUPREME BEING, the great Creator and Preserver of the universe. And no subject shall be hurt, molested, or restrained, in his person, liberty, or estate, for worshipping God in the manner most agreeable to the dictates of his own conscience; or for his religious profession or sentiments; provided he doth not disturb the public peace, or obstruct others in their religious worship.” — John Adams: Thoughts on Government, 1776
“All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth — that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the Ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid?”
— Benjamin Franklin, To Colleagues at the Constitutional Convention.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed lamb. -Benjamin Franklin
“The Bible is worth all other books which have ever been printed.” –Patrick Henry
“Socialism, in general, has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”
“Fathom the hypocrisy of a Government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured…but not everyone must prove they are a citizen” –Author Unknown
Culture of intellect, without religion in the heart, is only civilized barbarism and disguised animalism. — Christian Karl von Bunsen
The natural motivations of all human beings are mixtures of good and evil – with evil consistently spoiling the good. Hardness of the heart is its consequences. –Author Unknown.
“What you permit…you promote” –Author Unknown
Democrats used to be the back bone of our society. They were hard blue collar workers who loved God and country. It seems they now look to unions and government to take care of them along with the down trodden. ~~ –Estelle P. Shrum
