We deserve what we deserve…nothing more

We deserve what we deserve…nothing more

Thanks to my good buddy Mark L. for sending this quote. The notion that many seem to have in this great nation…that they are somehow entitled to a nice comfy life just because they are here…has been on my mind a lot lately and Dr. Rogers nails it with this quote.

“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 – 2005
