Catching Wild Pigs

Overthrow democracy and install a communism?

Do you know how to catch wild pigs?

Find a suitable place in the woods and put corn on the ground. The pigs will find it and begin to come everyday 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, 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 they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

Is this happening in America?

The government is starting to spread free corn out in the form of programs such as stimulus, supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), 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! HELLO! Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

We done got caught up in that free stuff once before and look where we landed.

Also, if you see all of this wonderful government 'help' as 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 not, but God help us when the gate slams shut! God, Gold and Guns!
