You cannot legislate the poor into freedom

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom"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, 1931

Shelby,
Did you enjoy your mint julep? I would rather have the bourbon on the rocks. May I confess that I had to read your comment three times until I understood. Thank you.

"Unfortunately, the present economic and political climate has enabled many to use this position--to attempt to 'legislate the wealthy our of freedom'. Well said JP."

I am honored by your statement Lucia. I sometimes wish I to could write like this.
It is so true.
Thanks for the comment.

Some people treat freedom as if it were almost synonymous with democracy, while other people see conflicts or even opposition between the two concepts. For example, some people argue that Iraq was free under Paul Berner on the grounds that it was a rational, humanist, non-subjugating government. long before elections were held. Some people would like a decent mint julep recipe. The basic mint julep recipe is sugar, water, mint, ice, and bourbon whiskey. Bourbon whiskey has to be used, otherwise it isn't really a julep. It's the time of year for the Kentucky Derby, which means it's the time of year for a mint julep. The Kentucky Derby results are in, and the Kentucky Derby 2009 Winner is a 50 to 1 underdog, Mine That Bird. The julep is the official cocktail of the race, as bourbon hails from the Bluegrass State. Those who put payday loans down on the horse will be able to drink with satisfaction, whatever mint julep recipe it is.
