Kids - Your Future Is You - Not Government, Not Your Parents

I always listen to the Charles Payne show on Saturdays - (on KFI) - I understand he has a show on Fox, but I don't watch it because I do not have a television set. Anyway, Charles was just talking about this strategy of "Divide and Conquer" which the left is currently using to create support for socking it to the so-called "rich" in the US. He said the message is that people who are successful are "fortunate" implying that it is a great deal of luck involved, like when someone wins the lottery.

When they say this, they are also implying that those who are not "fortunate" are that way through no fault of their own. But you already have the life experience to know that this is not true. When you are in school, you see how hard some students work - they always have their homework done, they stay home before tests and study, do the extra credit work, and generally put in more effort than everybody else - and usually this leads to those students achieving higher grades than other kids in the class who do not work as hard.

Well guess what? Nothing changes after you graduate. There will always be those that work harder, those that cheat, those that just do the bare minimum and those that drop out, though they will not necessarily be the same set from school, many people get it together later in life, or lose it completely.

So, my advice to you is to concentrate on what you can do with your own unique set of skills and talents - and don't wait for anybody to give you something. That just makes you dependent. Nowhere else in the world do people have the chance to really make something of themselves as they do here in the USA. This is still the case, despite all of the bad news. Learn everything you can, find out what you really like to do, and then go do it really, really well.

Do not believe that we are going to turn into Europe, with the government paying for everything. Europe is broke and so are we. Both systems are going to collapse and if we are lucky, we will be able to start fresh with a small, modest government to serve the people, rather than the other way around. Times are going to get scary, and you are going to have to hustle - right now you should be studying history like there is no tomorrow, unless you want to waste half your life repeating the mistakes of the past.

If we keep our wits about us and stay moral, principled people, we will pull through this very difficult period which will soon be upon us, and we can make America great once again. You are the next Great Generation, and you will be the ones to carry us forward. Good luck.
