The following observations are true although the author is unknown to the Rainmaker. Please read, consider and share them as you see fit.
First, it is impossible to legislate the poor into financial freedom by legislating the wealthy out of financial freedom or even into poverty.
Second, what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
Third, the government cannot give anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
Fourth, when half 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 is going to get what they work for, that is about the end of any nation.
Fifth, it is simply impossible to multiply wealth by dividing it.
Finally, it is simply impossible to legislate morality.
The Rainmaker thanks Peter Poranski for inspiring this post.
