Adrian Rogers on Government By The People

A powerful quote from Pastor/Dr. Adrian Rogers (1931–2005):

“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.”

This has nothing to do with what President Obama is trying to do with healthcare. It's very ignorant to think that hard workers will have to pay for lazy people. We have over 40 million people without healthcare. We pay for this in the ER when these people must go.

This has everything to do with what President Obama is trying to do. Have you read the health care plan? It's a biggie but do try to make some time. There are so many items in it that do exactly what Mr. Hayes is talking about--take forcibly from some to give to others. This can't be the solution for America. Do you know that latest figures show that 9 out of 10 Americans under the age of 65 have health insurance through their employers? It seems to me that what Mr. Obama needs to focus on, then, is insurance security perhaps to cover loop holes in coverage and give tax breaks and tax credits to individuals who must carry their own insurance just as it does with company sponsored insurance. Level the playing field so to speak. You say we pay for all these uninsured people anyway, well let's come up with a better way then; one that opens the doors for them to contribute toward their own health care rather than waiting for others to do it for them That, to me, is more responsible and effective.

allowed me to drop the desired pounds and have the perfect
body. Avoid burnout by mixing up your exercises

Information that informs the public and makes them good citizens is the kind of quality information that
one can be proud to call news, and if it ever goes completely out of style, may
the Lord help us, for it will be the end of civilization as we know it.
