Phony politicians promise the world to get reelected. Nobody wants to be the candidate telling people that the government isn’t going to save them. Sadly, no matter how many election cycles we go through with politicians promising the same old “hope and change,” they almost always fail to deliver.
The political insiders have a dirty little secret they do not want you to know. If you knew it, it could change the way you look at politics forever.
If leftist politicians won’t tell you the truth, I’ll do it for them. Here it is: no matter what they promise you, the government is not going to make you successful or happy.
If you want to get ahead in life, hard work is the only way to do it. That is the beauty of America’s free market system. If you work hard, you make yourself your most valuable commodity. If you are free to sell your sweat equity and your innovative spirit, you can blaze a trail to success no matter what your background. You have to choose not to be a victim.
It might sound like I’m giving you bad news, but it is actually the best news you can get. In other nations, your success in life is determined by what family you were born into. If your parents were poor, you are poor too. No matter how hard you work or how smart you are, you have no hope for a better life. America was uniquely founded on the simple idea of hope being freely available to all. It is your decision whether or not to seize that hope for yourself.
The Declaration of Independence talks about “the pursuit of happiness,” but so many people forget the “pursuit” part. No one is going to hand you happiness on a silver platter. You have to make the choice to pursue it. With your God-given rights protected, hope is yours for the taking. Make the choice today to work hard, be generous with others, and be smart. In short, make the choice to live a life of real hope, American-style.
