This e-mail came to me and is very powerful and TRUE.


There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some
exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the Prof
noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and
stretching as if his back hurt.
The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him
he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting
communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s
government and install a new communist regime.
In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange
question. He asked: "Do you know how to catch wild pigs?"
The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young
man said that it was no joke.
"You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting
corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the
free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down
oneside of the place where they are used to coming.
When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you
put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat
You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in
the last side.
The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to
eat that free corn again.
You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild
pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but
they are caught.
Soon they go back to eating the free corn . They are so used to it that they
have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept
their captivity."
The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening
in America . The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism
and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as
supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax cuts, tax
exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops
(CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms,
just a little at a time.
One should always remember two truths:
1) There is no such thing as a free lunch
2) and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than
you can do it yourself.
If you see that all of this wonderful government ‘help’ is a problem
confronting the future of democracy in America , you might want to send this
on to your friends.
If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will
probably delete this email.
But God help you when the gate slams shut!
AMERICA ,The home of the Free
Because of the Brave.
