Some Musings

another person must work for without receiving.


3. The government cannot give to  anybody anything that the    
government does not first take  from somebody else.


4. You cannot multiply wealth by   dividing it.


5. 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 is the   beginning of the end of any nation!
