Letter: Get that socialist Obama out of the Oval OfficeHere are five good reasons why President Barack Obama’s plan to socialize the United States Government will not work.
• You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
• 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.
• You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
• 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.
This is why the Soviet Union is no longer a solid communist nation. They broke up in 1990 and had to re-organize their society. Communism was no longer sustainable, so they embraced more capitalism.
We have to get rid of Obama. No second term for him.
