Here's the truth....

This is Abraham Lincoln's quote:

"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 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 is surely the end of any nation's future."

Abraham Lincoln
Here's a website that I heard about on K-love christian radio.
Interfaith Worker Justice has created a website that breaks down worker rights for all 50 states.

Abraham Lincoln was a smart man! Wish more people felt the same way he did back all those years ago. I for one get really tired of the people that refuse to work because they can live off welfare. I'm not talking about the ones that really need it, there is a difference. Great post Suzy!!!! (I'm going to read this post to my hubby, he will like it.) Thanks for stopping by!
