You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for,another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody any-thing that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it

(The late Dr. Adrian Pierce Rogers, 1931 to 2005)

Colonel, my first visit to your site, found it quite by accident, but will return. So greeting from the great state of Mississippi, USA. Leave you with a quote from W. Churchill: "The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries."
