11/22/15 History Could Be A Great Teacher
It never ceases to amaze me how little is known about the history of this great nation. The pilgrims came to this country to have a better life. They were exploited by the venture capitalist, who wanted a communal colony. No one was to own private property. The work was to be divided equally, and the fruits of their labor was to be divided equally at the end of the season. Human nature being what it is, some worked and others saw no need to work, because the goodies were shared equally.
William Bradford was governor and studied the situation, and came to the conclusion that private property would go a long way to solving the problem. Production of food increased, because, when a person has to work or starve, it is a great incentive to work. James Town, also tried Communism, and it didn’t work there either. If you ignore history you will find, that it is the future in the rear view mirror and it is gaining fast.
If you are interested type in your search box ( Communism at Jamestown) or ( William Bradford and Communism)
I recommend that you pay close attention to the candidates in both parties. I hear people on the street being interviewed, and they say such things like, Hillary is a liar not trustworthy, but she gets things done, the follow up question, what has she done, more often than not there is a blank look and silence. If this country fails to elect a candidate that can’t be trusted to tell the truth, we will be in big trouble. President Obama has a problem telling the truth and we are being taught a lesson that we won’t soon forget.
