Obama's Hero Said These Words.....

Postby beaudiddley » Wed Feb 20, 2013 5:08 pm

The man Obama wanted to be like wrote this.....I wonder where Obama went wrong.....

You cannot establish security on borrowed money.....
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.....
you cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich......
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.....
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift....
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.....
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.....
You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.....
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.....
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for thjemselves.......
