Catching Wild Pigs
                    

There was a Chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange
students in the class. One day, while the class was in the lab, the Prof.
noticed one of the exchange students who kept rubbing his back and
stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what the
matter was. 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 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 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, which are used to the free corn,
start to come through the gate to eat, and then 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 was exactly what he sees
happening in America .

'The government keeps pushing the people 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, etc,
etc. while the people continue to lose their freedom - just a little at a
time. One should always remember:

1.      There is no such thing as a free Lunch!

2.      Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than
you can do it yourself.'

So, if you see that all of this wonderful government 'help' is 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 pay attention to this but God help you when the
gates slam shut! In this 'very important' election year, listen
closely to what the candidates are promising you - just maybe you will be able to tell
who is 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.'   Thomas Jefferson
