WISDOM by Abraham Lincoln
~ You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
~ You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
~ You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
~ You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
~ You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
~ You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
~ You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

Albert Einstein once said, 'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.'

Every state that has voted blue in the last few years are deep in debt.
The red states are doing better & not deep in debt.

It is the disadvantaged who habitually elect Democrats------yet they are still disadvantaged...
