“Conundrum,” a term describing USA shared by Dr. Jane Campbell

Free people are not equal. Equal people are not free. (Think this one over and over and it makes sense!)
“A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.”
The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.
Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America :
1.     America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.
2.     Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
3.     They think they are victims -yet their representatives run the government.
4.     Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.
5.     The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6.     They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
 
Think about it!  And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.
Makes you wonder who is doing the math.
These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our government for the past 7 + years and cultural environment it has created:
 
1.    We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.  Funny how that works.  And here’s another one worth considering.
2.    Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.  But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money!  What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second did not !
3.    Why were we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our Army, Navy, Air Force & Coast Guard to a level lower than before WWII, but we were not stopping any of the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.
Are you among the few who are not missing something?
“If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools.”  ~Plato
And if you read the above quotes plus the last line, but still don’t get it, or do not care what the messages say, you are truly an associate to the rule of the fools!,
