A chemistry professor in a
large college that had some
exchange students in the class.

One day while the class
in the lab the Professor noticed one young man (exchange
student) who kept rubbing his back, and stretching as if
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 government.

In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange

He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild
The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the
punch line. The young man said this 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 one side 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 again.

You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in
the last side.

The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you 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 to America The government keeps pushing
us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in
the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit
for unearned income, 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: There is no such thing as afree lunch! Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

Also, 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!
In this 'very important' election year, listen
closely to what the candidates are promising you! Just
you will be able to tell who is about to slam the gate on
America .

'A government big enough to give you everything you
want, is big enough to take away everything you have.

- Thomas Jefferson
