Einstein once said, 'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.'
It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats
Yet they are still POOR!
"You cannot help the poor
By destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak
By weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity
By discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up
By pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man
By inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage
By taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently
By doing for them,
What they could and
Should do for themselves."
Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.
