Democrats At Their Best: Obama Campaign Complains GOP Blocking Jobs Bill After Reid Blocks Jobs Bill
Demands made by Pro-Occupy member
What do you get when you put together a man with a microphone who supports Ron Paul and protesters who really do not know what they are protesting against: You get this video, which by the way either will make you laugh, cry, or vomit. While I would agree that Ron Paul may be better than what we have now, that is not the argument for this blog. The video, done by a gentlemen named Adam Kokesh, went around D.C. asking those who were sitting in for the “Occupy Washington” rally what they thought about the economy, the wars, and government control of certain aspects of our lives. What I find the most amusing, even if it does give me pause about the future of this nation, is that most of these individuals are college kids just wanting a free ride.
All they want the government to do is give them something for free, in the name of social justice.
We have heard this phrase before and it is one we must not forget, because it is one that will be used in the ideological battle for the future of this nation. No matter if these young college kids realize it or not, they are advocating the government taking an even bigger role in our lives. They have a lot to complain about but never seem to mention the role government plays in all areas that they complain about. is it not funny, then, when the gentlemen asking the questions points out the government control inside these programs, the students stop on a dime and try to make their statements sound more, may I say, socialistic?
The point that all of these individuals are trying to make, and it is one we have heard many times, is that the government should take a bigger role in our lives and help us when we are down and out. Also, they should help us when we feel like doing nothing, when we do not feel like paying out bills, and when we feel like wasting our lives protesting for an ideal that, realistically, will never make the country better. Those who do well for themselves do it because they have big ideas of their own. Did Bill Gates become rich because he went around to poor people and stole out of their Christmas fund? No, he did not! He got rich because he an idea and he put that idea to work for him. Others in this world wanted the product that he offered, so he raised the price on the products and the people still bought them. If you told these kids that they were supporting these individuals with a lot of money when they bough their smart phones and their computers, they would find a way to beat around the bush, but the fact of the matter is a protest is no good unless you understand the idea you are fighting for. These kids (and I use the terms “kids” for a reason, mind you) want things a certain way, and unless they get it they believe sitting in the rain will help them get it. Unfortunately for them, the majority of people in this country do not agree with their insane view of the world. read more »
