When 140 Characters Isn't Enough

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before,
but had once failed an entire class.

That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.


The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".


All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.


After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.


As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.


When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.


All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.


Could not be any simpler than that?


If somebody is unable to understand THIS explanation, I have serious doubts about their ability to even function in society, much less run our country!

As the late Adrian Rogers said, "you cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.."

It's great. I have actually thought about this because I am sometimes a bleeding heart at times. There has to be some result for working or not working. Look at it this way, I have to so I don't fall pray to my evil bleeding heart, An F is for doing nothing, not a punishment, but the result for doing nothing. An A is for working very hard and succeeding on the exams, not a reward, but the result. If we practice this in our lives we can back it up with data that can be explained and shown as proof. I have to be able to back up my Grades in case someone challenges their grade. Good job, great example for sure...
