I’ve nearly posted this several times over the last few months, but kept putting it off because it felt “incomplete”. I can’t think of anything to add yet, so I’m tossing it out in the hopes that it resonates with you, and perhaps you can think of a few more. – V
“Beggars can’t be choosers” – means that if you are living on welfare, WIC, and food stamps, you don’t get to eat the best quality food in the grocery store. It also should mean that you don’t get a voice in elections, because you are dependent on the government being elected.
“Even a dog knows not to bite the hand that feeds it” – means that only the POTUS and VPOTUS should be paid by the US Government, all other elected officials in Washington, DC, should be paid by the state that elected them.
“Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations” – IDIC means that our country should not only embrace a path allowing for all ideological extremes to live together in peace, but that the Federal Government can’t dictate uniformity to any state or individual. It means that if one state wants to legalize recreational marijuana while the state next to it does not, they are BOTH right. Same for LGBT tolerance, speed limits. . .
“Great Things Come In Small Packages” – means that the government that governs least, governs best.
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven” – there is no such thing as a bad idea; only an idea who’s time has not yet come. Impatience is not a virtue. Neither is censorship.
“Know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em…” There is no shame in running from a fight you can’t win, but there is wisdom in recognizing when you face that fight.
“A man’s home is his castle” – we’re a nation of sovereigns who each reigns supreme within our own home – if you own your property, there is nobody who has a right to invade without a criminal investigation warrant – which is why financiers work so hard to keep you from paying off that mortgage. As long as you owe money to someone else, THEY own you.
