If you are comfortable and were not born into wealth, think about how you got to where you are.

Did education play a big part? Were you ever out of work? Did you draw unemployment?

Have you ever been helped by our government?

As a result of public schools and sharing our resources, our country is filled with successful, wealthy, conservatives who have forgotten how they got there and are worried that someone is abusing their tax money while they enjoy life.

Keep it up folks, your children and grandchildren will not be as lucky as you were. Where will you send them? To Mexico?
