Finally!  Someone has said this in plain, understandable language.

Wake up America! (Please share this)

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.

The America that works, and the America that doesn’t.

The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.

It’s not the haves and the have not’s, it’s the dos and the don’ts. Some

people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves,

contribute to society, and others don’t.

That’s the divide in America.

It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility.

It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and

victimization in order to win elective office.

It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its


That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.

The politics of envy was on proud display  when

Democrats/Schumer/Pelosi  pledged to fighting “income

inequality.”  They noted that some people make more than other people,that

some people have higher incomes than others, and they say that’s not just.

That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it,

Democrats will take it for you. That is the philosophy that produced Detroit.

It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America.

It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense

because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a


The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them

in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger

instead of ability and hope.

The Democrat’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing

the successful – seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their

choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices.

Because, by and large, income variations in society is a result of

different choices leading to different consequences.

Those who choose wisely and responsibility have a far greater likelihood

of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far

greater likelihood of failure.

Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family


You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college and you are apt

to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on

with purposeful education.

You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course,

you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course.

Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do.

There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an

inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an inequality of

effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young

adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant.

He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different


His outcome pays a lot better than mine.

Does that mean he cheated and the Democrats need to take away his wealth?

No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices

lead to different outcomes.

It is not inequality Democrats intend to take away, it is freedom.

The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. There is no true option

for success if there is no true option for failure.

The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the

punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness

than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his ass and did nothing.

Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and shortsighted


The Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right,

while completely ignoring inequality of effort.

The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is

sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.”  The Democrats

would turn that upside down.

Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who

fail are to be rewarded as wards of society.

Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American

society if Democrats get their way.

Democrats seek a lowest common denominator society in which the government

besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through


Democrats speak of two Americas and their grip on power is based

on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other.

America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided

by the differences in our efforts. It is a false philosophy to say one

man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s


What the Democrats offer is not a solution, but separatism.  They foment division

and strife, pitting one set of Americans against another for their own

political benefit. .

That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a


Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s

maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.


Are we as Americans going to stand by and allow the Democrats to take away this freedom that we hold dear?
