Simple School Lesson
I am not posting this story to bash on Obama. I believe that this country has been drifting toward socialism for a while now and this story is a simple, yet powerful and truthful example of the effects of socialism. Family First Entrepreneurs thrive in an environment when they can see and feel a reward for their hard work and smart business decisions and we need to maintain a climate in this country where this can happen.
Read and absorb.... it says a lot and it tells you about our future if we stay on this same path.
An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.
But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all
resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.
Could not be any simpler than that.........
