We are headed in the wrong direction

Liberals believe in a mythical world that never has been and never will be. Liberals believe in governing by emotion. If it sounds good or feels good, then it should be law regardless of being practical or what it will cost.

They put everything in groups — rich, poor, middle-class, less-fortunate blacks, white, etc. They never talk about personal responsibility. It is always someone else's fault. They never consider some of the less fortunate are that way because of stupid decisions they made.

Like not studying while in school, or when they got a job, only doing what they had to do to get by, never going the extra mile.

This country is heading in the wrong direction. We have too many people that think they are entitled to the better things in life without earning them. If you have it, then they should also. It isn't fair.

The reason we have so many people wanting to come to this country is for a chance for a better life. In a Communist country, if you are one of the elite, you live like a king. Otherwise, you just get by on what government says you need.

People have no incentive or reason to try to do better because government is going to take it away if they do. If you want to better yourself in life, it is up to you. Waiting for some government program to do it is not the answer. Chances are you will always be waiting.
