Ask What Your Government Can Do For You

Are you getting the feeling that way too many Americans have their hand out wanting the rest of us to give them something?  “I want free healthcare,” “I need subsidized housing,” “I need a low interest mortgage,” “I want a no down payment loan,” “I want a guaranteed high paying job with early retirement,” “I want a government subsidized car loan,” “ I want $4,500 trade-in for my $500 car…” 

The problem with all this, of course, is that someone else needs to pay for it.  Once you depend on someone else to guarantee the benefits of life for you, you are no longer in control; and what the government giveth, the government can taketh John Kennedyaway. 

My, how the mighty have fallen!  Last week we celebrated the 40th anniversary of U.S. astronauts landing on the moon.  That event took place because Democrat President John F. Kennedy dreamed it, willed it, and motivated us to action.  He challenged American ingenuity and creativity; and in less than a decade the impossible became an accomplished feat. 

During his Inaugural speech in 1961, President Kennedy said, “Together let us explore the stars, conquer the desert, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depth, and encourage the arts and commerce…Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”

Today’s Democrat party and Democrat President and Democrat Congress want none of this.  Rather than explore the stars, they want to nationalize healthcare and raise taxes; rather than conquering the desert, they want to control the amount of electricity you can use, and how warm you can keep your house and raise taxes; rather than eradicating diseases, they want to ration the medical help you can receive and deny you service to save money and raise taxes; rather than tapping the ocean depth, they forbid tapping it for America to remain energy independent, and raise taxes on the fuel you use; rather than encouraging commerce, they want trade barriers to raise the cost of goods you have to purchase; and raise taxes. 

Today’s Democrat party has turned John F. Kennedy on his head; the current liberal Democrat mantra is: “Ask not what you can do for your country; ask what your country can do for you.”
