Didja’ hear the one about the college economic professor who made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class? The class had insisted that President Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich…a great equalizer as a result of redistribution of wealth.
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 and 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 third 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 tthem that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great. But when the government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
I’m not sure where that story originated, but the outcome of Obama’s socialist agenda can’t be explained in more simpler terms unless one reads and understands the words of Dr. Adrian Rogers, who in 1931 said this: “When half 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 becaus somebody else is going to get what they work for…that my dear friend is about the end of any nation.”
