Jefferson was not making a judgmental statement about those not willing to work. This was not a person saying look at how wonderful I am and how bad you are. He was not making a sexist statement or a racist statement as the left would accuse today. Jefferson was simply stating a fact. Jefferson knew history and Jefferson understood mankind. Jefferson also foretold the future of the nation he helped start.
He knew if the United States came to accept as the “American Way” that a “safety net” be provided for all capable workers who decided they would prefer to simply receive, we would be doomed to failure. A “safety net” for capable workers is not the “American Way,” it is anti-American.
Nearly four in 10 Americans, or 92 million, are not in the labor force and now there’s a reason why: They have simply given up and don’t want to work.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the largest groups of people not in the labor force are those who don’t want a job, a remarkable statement on the nation’s work ethic. The federal job counter said that 85.9 million adults last month didn’t want a job, or 93 percent of all adults not in the labor force.
And why should they want to work. The Marxists have told them for years that it is their right to receive benefits from the government and it is the duty of those who work to pay taxes so those who chose, do not have to work. The Marxists have told us for years the “American Way” is to provide a safety net for those who think they are too busy to work or simply do not want to work. This is now discussed in the halls of congress on both sides of the isle. The problem is that the discussion is not if these who choose not to work should receive anything, but the discussion is how much to they deserve to receive.
Elizabeth Warren was speaking to the Democratic Alliance and said when asked why Senate Democrats didn’t aggressively push the liberal economic policies she champions.
“The fight is to frame the issues for the next few elections,” she said, according to the source in the room. “We have moved the Democrats over the last four years.”
Democracy Alliance partners, as the group calls its members, pay annual dues of $30,000 and are required to contribute a total of at least $200,000 a year to recommended groups. Since its inception in 2005, the club’s partners have combined to give more than $500 million to recommended groups, and they played a pivotal early role in boosting Barack Obama during his 2008 Democratic presidential primary bid against Clinton.
It is groups like this and people like Obama and Warren that wish to fundamentally transform the United States from the democracy Jefferson championed to the totalitarian state Marx championed. This is a fact as stated by Jefferson, not me.
