By Speak up America
President Obama once compared himself to President Lincoln and I do not see the comparison.
I am quoting the following powerful words from a book called "A Heart That Yearned For God" by G. Frederick Owen. You have the choice to continue reading wonderful information or chose to be a closed minded person and delete the following information, but I ask you to read.
President Lincoln's profound insight was shown in his "Ten Guidelines" not only went far in guiding him in administrative affairs, but also helped to stimulate the country's economic and social wellbeing.
Note the depth of wisdom couched in the ten lines:
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
You cannot further brotherhood of men by inciting class hatred.
You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
My fellow American's that are the front line of our new's should stand for what is right, not for what is popular.
Now tell me where our President compares to Lincoln!
Thank you for taking the time to read.
