A chemistry professor in a large college had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor
noticed one young man (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 government.

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 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 a free 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!

Keep your eyes on the newly elected politicians who are about to slam the gate on America .

Comment: I am afraid this is what is happening. Too many people relying on the government. The government eroding our rights. The government
invading matters they do not have rights to mess with. Government operating under the guidance of vested interests such as big pharma, the Fed
and international bankers. Restrictions have been increased and are increasing.
