What if everyone had $1 million?

Dear Editor,

For any who voted for Obama the last election, the one before, or both times, I want to ask if you are satisfied with the change we got?  Fundamental change, Obama himself promised, would be what we’d get. He kept his promise.

For any who don’t know what fundamental change is; it can be defined as:  “Of or dealing with general principles rather than practical application”.

Twice this chameleon was elected, and you didn’t understand our nation was undertaking a drastic change to principles many of us who were born here didn’t want changed. We wanted none of the principles we believed, and still believe made our country great once distorted to the image of ideas that have failed multiple times.

My rights, or freedoms, end where yours begin. This works the other way too. Yes, the Declaration of Indepence says “All men were created equal.” Equality and fairness do have similar meanings. If the wealth is spread, and each individual is given a million dollars, everybody will have an equal amount of money.

This is where equality and fairness ends. Some people with their million will put it away for a day when they need it. Others yet will spend their million frivolously, and soon be out; then what? Still further there are them who will invest their million, and become multi-millionaires, or even billionaires.

Then there are them for whom laws are made; and why it is said the love of money is the root of all evil. Them who are like this will not be satisfied with a paltry million; No, they want more! But why make potentially worthless efforts, invest money, and take the chance of losing it! There are ripe pickings with so many millionaires! They will just take, steal, bribe, or cheat them who are weaker and mentally less stable than themselves. They are called criminals, and will do whatever it takes as long as they are not bothered much!

This explains why liberalism can never work. It is called human nature.  God made us this way.

I am done.
