We CAN Make a Difference

I read an article once that said something to the effect "when they came for the Jews, I wasn't a Jew so I didn't get involved". It goes on to repeat with other groups until finally they come for the Christians and there is no one left to help. I think it's time Christians become more involved with making a statement against what some leaders in high places are trying to push across our Nation. It frightens me. Hence, the article that follows. It came through as an email and I found the photo through some research. Scary. And it could easily happen to us. That's where you and I can make a difference. It doesn't have to happen here. In America. You can click here to read further about the original poem and how others have adapted it through the years. The article that follows has been checked out.

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.
The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that.
