Points to remember:

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

Einstein once said, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’

It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats. Yet they are still POOR. By Einstein’s definition, Democrats and their supporters are an insane study in futility!

    You are exactly right, Fred.

  2. Katie says:

    They are poor because of one reason:


    Vote for fiscal responsibility.
    Vote Republican!

  3. More of the Democraps’ wonderful record. [heavy sarcasm]

  4. To further prove the insanity, never will the Demorats and Leftists listen to any policies other than those of:

    1. Tax
    2. Spend
    3. MORE
