Letter to the editor: Time to wake up America

-A A +A

The below e-mail was passed to me with only the initials (CB) to identify it; therefore, I cannot verify the content, but as I pondered the brave men and women who have fought to PASS THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY to us I felt I must pass this information to a broader reader base than just e-mail recipients.
Please read this carefully and prayerfully and remember this warning when you vote in November.  If our forefathers had been as naïve as our generation seems to be, we would be living under communist control today.  WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

Thoughtfully and sincerely, Shirley Traylor

THE BELOW IS COPIED FROM AN E-MAIL:

QUOTE: There was a chemistry professor that had some exchange students in his class.  One day while the class was in the lab and Prof noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt.  The professor asked the young man what was the matter.  The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back.  He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist government. In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked, “Do you know how to catch wild pigs?”  The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.  The young man said this was no joke.  “You catch wild pigs finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground.  The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn.  When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.  The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, and then you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.  Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom.  They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught.  Soon they go back to eating the free corn.  They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees in America.  The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms just a little at a time.  One should always remember: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LUNCH.  Also, “You can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.  Also, if you see that all of this wonderful government ‘help’ is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to send this on to your friends.  If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life then you will probably ignore this, but God help you when the gate slams shut!!  END QUOTE
