    There’s an Adrian Rogers quote floating around cyberspace. Perhaps you have received it?
    Though Dr. Rogers said it in 1984, his words are so relevant to what we are facing in America today. In fact, it was even read and posted in the Congressional Record by Congressman Steve King from the state of Iowa on January 14, 2009.
    Dr. Rogers is quoted:

    “Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation.”

    It doesnt get any more profound than that.

    Been said by others previously, and the best summation was probably Monteque's.

    It remains to be seen if Democracy can survive once the people realize that they can vote themseves money from the public til.
