A Great Quote

Arbor by the Playhouse by Susan Rios

I found the following quote on a blog of a wonderful lady I met from a MOMYS group. That stands for "Mommys of Many Young Siblings." Cute huh? Anyway, when I read this from her blog...which by the way is called "Standing at the Crossroads," I thought it was wonderful and stated so perfectly the mess our country is in right now. Dr. Adrian Rogers said this before his death in much more would he be proclaiming it from the rooftops today!

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers

How beautifully said and just the thing we seem to be finding ourselves bailed into, not out of! Socialism has not worked successfully for any other government, country, nation, etc. in the history of the world. How is it that the White House and Congress can be so ignorant of history to actually think it will work for us? I thank God that my daily bread comes from Him and not a government hand out.
