Pulling Down the Wage Payer

By MoMnmb
“You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.” -Abraham Lincoln

Although it is doubtful that the Democratically controlled Congress will heed Lincolns advice, it behooves us to to spread this philosophy among ourselves until we as a people actually believe it. Too often in our greed and jealousy we "wage earners" secretly wish the "wage payer" would be pulled down. Our nation is wallowing in debt, not just nationally but personally. We persistently spend more than we earn, increasing our jealousy of those who earn more than we do. We would like to be taken care of and allowed to live a life of so called luxury- never having to worry about how we will care for ourselves or our families. When we, as a nation of individuals, no longer demand these impossible things from our government we may be able to find the real happiness we all so desperately pursue.
