Have you ever had a contract with someone who (you learned later) never had any intention of keeping his word and performing his obligations?
Have you ever had a contract with someone who (you learned later) felt no moral obligation to keep his promises?
What would it be like to live in a world where your plumber worked on your leaky pipes and did not fix a thing but still took your money and then refused any responsibility for the botched job?
What would it be like to live in a world where your auto mechanic pretended to fix your car, then took your money, and then refused any responsibility when the same problem with your car occurred over and over again?
What would it be like to live in a world where people could borrow money to buy a home, or to buy a car, or to go to college, with no intent or requirement to pay the money back?
You would be living in Liberal-ville, U.S.A. The land of the dis-functional, irresponsible, ignorant, and uneducated where failure is rewarded (and encouraged) and success is punished (and discouraged).
Imagine working hard at two jobs to pay your mortgage, to pay for your groceries, to buy clothes for your kids, to help your elderly parents pay their bills, to pay for your health insurance, and to save a little money for an annual vacation, but 50% of your neighbors don’t do any of these things and don’t have to.
Approximately 7,000,000 Americans work two jobs. http://www.bls.gov/cps/cpsaat36.pdf so they can make ends meet.
Think about getting up each morning to hitch yourself to a wagon with big inflatable tires, then walking down the street picking up 50% of your neighbors, and then pulling that wagon to a government recreation center (with your neighbors sitting in the back drinking coffee, laughing and joking) so they could spend the day relaxing?
What if you were expected to go to work every day and earn enough money to pay for your neighbors to send their kids to school for free, and to pay for your neighbors to get their groceries for free, and to pay off your neighbors’ second mortgages so they could have a new car or a new boat. Don’t forget about paying for your neighbors’ health insurance and paying for your neighbors’ retirement.
What would it be like to live in a world where someone else (someone you have never met) borrows money in your name, that you and your children are obligated to pay back with interest, and then gives that money to your neighbors just so they can have the same lifestyle as you?
Would you like to save money to pay for unexpected expenses in the future, or to pay for your own needs when you can no longer work, while your government prints money and creates inflation that cuts the value of your savings in half?
How about paying your taxes every year according to the law while 50% of your neighbors are not required to pay the same taxes.
Then, you watch your neighbors marching, demonstrating, shouting, and sleeping in the public parks you pay for, all the time claiming that you are not paying your fair share of taxes and that you should pay more.
Imagine listening to thousands of deadbeats whining for weeks on end, and expecting you to pay to clean up the mess they leave. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/11/occupy-la-30-tons-of-debris-left-behind-at-city-hall-tent-city.html.
This is the world brought to you by liberal politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Eric Holder, and all the rest of the liberal crew. This is what voting for liberals means. This is how they shape the nation. The people who ride in the wagon and complain about how the people who pull the wagon are not doing their fair share are the liberal’s voting constituency.
How much longer are you going to keep pulling that wagon?
