My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. ~Thomas Jefferson
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
Every society that has ever existed that turned away from God and has placed the responsibility of the masses in the hands of the government has suffered dramatically.
Have you ever noticed that the people who struggle the most believe it is someone else’s responsibility to take care of them? I am not talking about needing assistance from time to time. We all need a helping hand at one time or another. I am talking about the people who live on welfare when they are capable of learning and producing.
I know people who will not work because they would make less money than they currently receive from the government. They are smart and capable people. Some of them feel stuck in the system. However, they can break free and become successful if they choose to.
If we as individuals will take responsibility, our great country will thrive. However, if we allow government to keep doing what it is currently doing, we will become just another example of what happens in a socialistic society. The choice is ours.
