Catching Wild Pigs, or how you get socialized
This is a story that was sent to me, and I don’t know who the author is, or if it is even true.
That doesn’t matter here.
Some of you might have seen this before.
It is the simplest explanation to me yet how Socialism has and is being imposed on us every day,
How it is creeping on us, and how we get blinded, yes, blinded into accepting it into our daily lives.
Catching Wild Pigs
A chemistry professor in a large college had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor 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 by 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 a gain. 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 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 happening to America . The government keeps pushing us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as 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! Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.
Also, I hope you see that all of this wonderful government ‘help’ is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America . God help you when the gate slams shut!
Keep your eyes on the newly elected politicians who are about to slam the gate on America .
“A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have”
I hope you enjoyed this and understand what it is I’m trying to convey.
Liberals are trying to build the fence,
Conservatives are trying to tear it down.
You are on one side or the other, and there should be no stradling here.
If you are a moderate, no matter which party, then you are a stradler.
You put your finger out to the wind to see which way you are going today.
At least have enough guts to pick a side.
McCain was a straddler. That’s one reason he lost.
What make Sarah Palin so popular is she is on the tear down this fence side.
Didn’t someone else say tear down this fence?
Oh ya. Some 80’s guy, Uncle Ronnie.
