There comes a time when there is so much wrong that you don't know where to start to try to correct the situation, when language has been twisted, morals have been distorted, thought has been turned into indoctrination, and intellect has been traded in for political correctness. There is a wonderful childhood story entitled, "The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs. I want to get across to you that America was full of Geese who laid Golden Eggs. Individuals who rose, out of whatever circumstance they were in, to contribute whatever eggs they laid to support their families, their employees, and their communities. It was a country full of these Geese that created a thriving, successful, creative, superior manner of existence for all of us. The government allowed these Geese to prosper and, thereby, a lot of golden eggs arrived. This formula worked fine until the government started meddling and stealing the eggs. And that stealing began in the 1920's with the Roosevelts. Wanting more, the government gradually has and is now in the process of killing the Geese.
Now,in the case of a cake recipe, when it fails, you throw it out and start over with a recipe that you know works. In the case of catastrophic policies, when they fail, you throw them out and start over with policies that are tried and true, that you know will work. In the case of bureaucrats and politicians, when they are ruining the country and tearing apart the fabric of common sense, you speak up to them and throw them out. In the case of teachers who are teaching anti-American, anti-family, anti-reason to our children, you should step up and demand they get out of our school system. When the government continues to pile on, day after day, un-Constitutional laws and the use of force against our freedoms, families, and businesses, you need to yell at the top of your lungs, "Stop it already!!!"
Obama and the Socialists in government are killing the Goose that laid the golden eggs. A few of us have been yelling at them to stop. A few of us are trying very hard to enlighten the indoctrinated. But the indoctrinated don't want to listen. They want to get part of those golden eggs that they didn't earn, so they are happy to let Obama kill the goose on their behalf. And there are those who have been seduced into thinking that life is so unfair that Obama is salvation for some misplaced collective guilt. They actually think that when the goose is dead, there will be any eggs to grab. They are seduced by the lyrical lies of the politically powered machine that is going to be dining on that goose until every shred of the flesh is gone. And then what?
How do I come to this strange analogy between the Goose with Golden Eggs and the Government? I heard Barrack Obama's speech at Notre Dame on May 17, 2009. I listened to him admonish his audience to give up "self interest," to reject "crass materialism and greed." At which point, I thought, this guy is co-opting the language to suit his own desire of greed to kill the goose. I also thought to myself that he is talking to college students who, because of socialist government policies, now hardly have opportunities to find jobs except in the government sector. Think of yourself as a graduating college senior and the message you get from the President of the United States is this: Forget your own self-interest, forget your aims to gain financial independence, forget your desires to live in a nice house surrounded by useful furnishings, forget your wish to support your own family, put aside any ideas you have had to succeed in commercial endeavors.....your goals are now only righteous on behalf of the government and what the government wants from you is to support IT. This President is telling the graduating class of Notre Dame that their only worth is collective, to give to those who do not produce. Only dead Geese allowed in this country. Plucked to death and then necks wrung for roasting.
So, if you were a gosling, growing up dreaming of laying golden eggs, you might as well forget it now. You have been deemed a "greedy, selfish, materialistic Goose and your eggs belong to the government bureaucrats. Your Goose is cooked. In Obama's world, you exist for his benefit...to produce eggs for his collective healthcare, his collective manufacturing of cars and transportation, his collective energy system, his collective education system, his collective mortgage and banking system, his collective everything.
UNLESS....and UNTIL you decide the U.S. Constitution is worth defending and you can vote out and fight off the politicians who are in the business of killing you....you, the former Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs.
