   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 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 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, 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, 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 delete this email, but God help you when the gate slams 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

What is really sad is you could show that to everyone in the country and atleast 80% would shrudge their shoulders and go on about their day. That wheel is headed down hill so fast now there's no stopping it. We just have to prepare the best we can and try not to be labeled extremist.
