    this is the cry of one who wants to make tha world a place of partnership

    after listening to Mr Obama's speech today from a few days ago it was on the topic of a one world society
    sharing the wealth-taking our funds and giving them to the other country's
    he has started a bill to endow the UN with several Million to this end at the cost of 2,000 $ to each American
    this is call socialism
    the Nazi regime has the name socialist party in it
    which equates to no more USA as we know it today and is a far cry from the day of our forefathers.
    FDR started this free stuff and it's gonna take us a few years to get our national freedoms back
    am doing my best to started it off.

    Free Corn

    There was a Chemistry professor in a large college that had some

    exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab

    the Prof noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his

    back, and stretching as if his back hurt.



    The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student

    told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while

    fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow

    his country's government and install a new communist government.



    In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a

    strange question. He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?'

    The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.



    The young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding a

    suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find

    it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to

    coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they

    are used to coming.



    When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you

    put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again.

    You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.

    The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat,

    you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.



    Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and

    around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating

    the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to

    forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.'



    The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening

    to A merica . The government keeps pushing us toward socialism and keeps

    spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income,

    tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not

    to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our

    freedoms - just a little at a time.



    One should always remember: There is no such thing as a free Lunch! A politician

    will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do yourself.



    If you see all of this wonderful government 'help' is a problem confronting the

    future of democracy in A merica , you might want to send this on to your friends.

    If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life then you will probably delete

    this email, but God help you when the gate slams shut!



    In this "very important" election year, listen closely to what the candidates are

    promising you - just maybe you will be able to tell who is about to slam the gate on A merica .
