Freebies are not free

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, November 25, 2009

I am totally against government-run health care. I realize there are many Americans who really deserve help, but there are also many who abuse the system and don’t deserve help. It is a very sad time in America when many people, black and white, hold their hands out for the government to put something free in it.

Do they ever stop and ask themselves or wonder where the freebies come from? The government is not in the position of giving anything away without “We the People” picking up the tab for it in the form of taxes.

While black Americans talk about slave days and hold that against whites today, none of us can control what happened hundreds of years ago. But there are more slave days that are beginning to take shape right under our noses and the majority of the people have not awakened yet to figure it out. This time it will be the federal government enslaving all of us if we don’t get it stopped.

Government wants to keep sticking something in all of our hands on the pretense of helping us when in reality they are suppressing us in order to take more of our rights and freedoms away. This, in turn, allows them to control our lives more and more.

It’s not about health care. It’s about government takeover and control.

It doesn’t matter what color you are or what political party you are affiliated with, we are all Americans. So please, let’s all join hands and take America back or we are on the road to losing it.
