The Government is spending your money

In view of the HUGE "stimulus" being crafted in Washington, I thought I'd pass along a couple of quotes.
This is a very interesting one(also very true)sent by a friend of mine. Thanks, Steve

"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 anything 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, will prove the end
of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

~~~ The late Dr. Adrian Rogers , 1931 to 2005 ~~~

“We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before, and it does not work... I say after eight years of this administration, we have just as much unemployment as when we started -- and an enormous debt to boot.”
- Henry Morgenthau (FDR's Treasury Secretary)
