Lift off to the rest of our life!
I grew up on a farm in a very conservative rural southeastern
Indiana environment. My parents and most of my family were, and still
are conservative,and those values no doubt rubbed off on me. But as I
looked back and began to question things,I realized that those teachings
were not only the way I was raised, but those values are the only
techniques that “work.”
About the time I was forty , having experienced a good portion of
“life” , and not having everything turn out the way I had planned, even
though I had tried to do everything the “right” way, (get a good job,
join the right clubs,etc.) I began to question my values and look for
The journey I began took me to the four corners of the earth, during
which time I studied the customs , ways, and beliefs of the Aborigines,
the American Indian, the Maya, the Egyptians, and many others.
Time and time again, the same answer keeps coming back to me.
A prime example is the Austalian Aborigine, these native peoples roamed the outback of Australia for thousands of years,although their culture is fascinating and extremely spiritual,and their link to the divine energy is amazing, they never really advanced past the stone age.
Because of the advancement of the Australian culture they have been primarily “left behind”. To the credit of the Austalian government, they are trying to help them, the government gave them everything, housing,food education, etc. For the most part this has had a negative effect, they still sleep outside and pretty much live the same way they have for thousands of years. I’m not sure what the perfect answer is, but government welfare in never the answer.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that the government or us as individuals should never help someone in need, it just means that welfare shouldn’t be a career choice.
This doesn’t mean that conservatives are cold hearted and uncaring, it is a well documented fact that conservatives give far more to charities than their more liberal friends.
It will take several generations for the aborigines to adapt to the more modern ways, I hope they don’t loose all of their spiritual knowledge along the way.
The only thing that would help them is to provide training, education, and a new purpose to life. This takes time but it is a better way than just giving them everything,with no motivation to improve their lot in life.
I was taught early in life that I didn’t tell my mother I was bored, if I asked for money to buy candy, there was always a cow to milk or weeds to pull in the garden, they provided a good home and my basic needs, but if I wanted something extra, I soon learned I had to work for it. I started driving a tractor when I was about 3 years old, and started milking cows at about 5. I supposed that would be child abuse today.
I have found our society has become extremely entitlement
conscious,a lot of people want something for nothing and they think
that the government should pay for it.
They don’t realize that when the government pays for something,
those free benefits become very expensive, and vast amounts of waste
and corruption enter into the scene, besides the fact that someone has to pay for them, the American taxpayer.
The socialistic ideas of the left serve no one. Every four years I have heard the left promise us the “rainbow”and everything else our little hearts could desire. There is no way they can fulfill on these promises, only the uninformed could believe such rhetoric. You simply cannot lower taxes for 95% of the taxpayers, increase government spending by trillions of dollars, and reduce the deficit. Any one who has studied basic economics understands that when the economy is soft, taxes need to be lowered,not raised. Raising taxes will just add to the problem, a real disaster could result.
The liberals are not offering any change, just the same 50 year old rheteric, they keep wanting to take us Back to the Future.
This election has shown us the real motive of N.O. W., the National Organization of Women,for years they have touted the fact that they are for the advancement of women. Now the truth comes out , if they were for the advancement of women, they would be supporting Sarah Palin, they are not supporting her, she has the wrong values for them, they are an organization that supports women only if they have left wings philosophies, let’s call it like it is, they are a left wing organization that only support women who support their ideals.
We keep inching closer and closer to socialism in the United States,
that is not what our founding fathers had in mind. Our country was
founded on the principles of a free market and individualism, that is
how we became the leading economic country in the world.
The human being thrives best when it is free to choose and make it’s own decisions, most people don’t want to be drones.
Socialism simply doesn’t work, when competition is taken out of the
mix, and people aren’t rewarded for achieving, all incentive is lost
and a lot of the new innovations are never innovated, because there is
Government is never the answer,that has been proven world wide,
whenever any government tries to solve a problem, the problem just gets
Everything that can be done by the private economy should be left in
the private sector, sure greed enters into it,but when any one company
or sector becomes too “greedy” someone with a better idea and a cheaper
price comes along and knocks them off their pedestal.
We as individuals have to solve our own problems and take our lifeinto our own hands,that is the only way it works, it is governments job
to stay out of the way.
I have now come full circle, from being born a conservative,and after reaching a point where I began to question, and considering the more liberal points of view, doing my own research,and finding out for myself , I finally settled back to the values I was raised with.
