ROBIN HOOD SYNDROME AND SPREADING THE WEALTH IS JUST A NAME FOR SOCIALISM

                          SOCIALISM AND THE REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH

AN OBAMA CAMPAIGN STORY

 

As conveyed online by various bloggers, obama infomercial:

"I love you, you love me.  I will get you stuff for free?"

 

The story is told of a man who went out for lunch and on his way passed a homeless guy who was holding up a sign that read, "Vote Obama, I need the money."   Once in the restaurant a young male server who took his order was noted to be wearing an "Obama 08" tie, stating in visual proclamation his choice for president of the United States of America.  When the bill came the male customer decided not to tip the server and explained to him that he was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. 

 

The server stood in disbelief while the customer explained he was going to redistribute his tip to someone he deemed needed it more - the homeless guy right outside.  The server angrily stormed from the table in apparent disgust.  The customer then went outside and gave the homeless guy $10, and told him to thank the server inside who missed his tip.  Stating, "Because I thought you as a homeless person needed the money more."  The homeless guy was grateful for money he did not earn, while the server knew it rightfully belonged to him for work and services rendered.  This is an excellent example of what I call the "Robin Hood Syndrome."  Which can best be described as, "taking from others who in most instances worked hard for their money, only to give it to those who in all probability, did not."  

 

THE ROBIN HOOD SYNDROME

 

Living the American dream, working, striving, and moving forward through dedication and hardwork, is what hope in democracy is all about.  I came from a back-ground of faith in God, with parents who worked hard and often did with out, so that they could provide a better life for their children.  In turn, I too strive to follow their example.  The Robin Hood Syndrome takes from the rich to give to the poor all in the name of service and selfless humanitarian outreach. 

 

It is a free handout, which promotes a lazy economy and work force.  Yes - many people from time to time do need help, which is why we have charity and welfare programs.  But to base America's foundation on handouts, does nothing to solve social problems, and serves to weaken our economy.  Why work when you will be provided basic living expenses for free?  Aside from those who truely need help, such as children, the elderly, disabled, sick, and mentally challanged, why strive to excell and pursue the American dream, when much of what you work for could be taken away. 

 

ADDRESS SOCIAL HEALTH, NOT SOCIAL HANDOUTS

 

I remember an excited young girl about the age of 9 in a top news story on television reading a letter asking President Obama as if he were Santa Claus, for a house that she and her mother could live in.   Many Americans living in poverty felt President Obama was the hope and answer to all their financial problems.  Why?  Because he promoted himself during his campaign to be the man with the plan for a change we deserve and can live with.  Free handouts are not the solution to the problems facing America.  Addressing America's social health issues, such as education and health care reform, are what will help to provide a solid foundation for our future.  These programs should "not" include Government take over, but instead provide Government incentives. 

 

 

POVERTY IS NOT A RACIAL ISSUE

 

Kenneth J. Neubeck writes in his book, "Social Problems - A Critical Approach," Random House, (page 199), "When someone says "the poor," many unknowledgeable persons immediately think of blacks, Puerto Ricans, American Indians, or Chicanos."  Neubeck goes onto confirm a high percentage of people who are poor in the United States are white.  And he defines poverty as an economic state.  Meaning lacking a means of subsistence capable of providing what in this society and at this time - could be considered a secure and adequate standard of living.  People are poor because they lack money.  While the young, elderly, sick, disabled, do need government welfare help, there are other able bodied Americans who don't.   

 

Providing money and free health care to those who can work and afford to buy it, is not the answer.  You can give a child a fish to ease his hunger for the moment.  But unless you "teach" the child to fish, he will remain hungry.  Education and social interest teaching programs provide a means for the poor to learn "how" to make a living.  Which inturn enables them to rise above their poverty and welfare circumstances.  Revamping our current Health Care program keeping what works and changing what doesn't, *tort reform, and open insurance enterprise promotes democratic capitalism. 

 

* Tort Reform - Refers to legislation designed to reduce liability costs through limits on various kinds of damages and through modification of liability rules.  It is the phrase used by its advocates who claim it is a change in the legal system to reduce litigation's alleged adverse effects on the economy. 

 

 

ASK YOURSELF THESE SIMPLE QUESTIONS: 

 

  • What did the homeless man do with his free $10 handout? 

 

  • What did the working server do in response to the customer taking his tip and giving it to another? 

 

  • What does the small business owner and employer of the servers working in his restaruant do without receiving tips from customers?

 

  • What occurs when work is discouraged and living to get is rewarded?

AMERICAN PRIDE DIMINISHES WHILE SOCIALISM THRIVES

 

About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier: 

 

‘A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as 
a permanent form of government.’ 

 

‘A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters 
discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public 
treasury.’ 

 

‘From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates 
who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result 
that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, 
which is always followed by a dictatorship.’ 

 

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years.  During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence: 

 

1. from bondage to spiritual faith; 

2. from spiritual faith to great courage; 

3. from courage to liberty; 

4. from liberty to abundance; 

5. from abundance to complacency; 

6. from complacency to apathy; 

7. from apathy to dependence; 

8. from dependence back into bondage’
