A thought for the day: Entitlement is the enemy of liberty.
Property rights are the staple of free market, and a country of liberty. Without the ability to take ownership of property, there is no ability to freely trade in goods.
Entitlements are nothing more than the philosophy of need being equal to right... or something deserved without having earned.
So if the enemy of Liberty is a sense of entitlement, would someone please explain to me why the Government (IRS) has sent me a letter explaining how I am "ENTITLED" to a free check worth $1200? Am I really entitled to this money? What is the source? From whom did it come? Did I earn this money, and how? How do I pay it back? At what interest?
I am not entitled to free money, and to suggest that the American People are entitled to handouts from the government is little more than supporting the mentality of a welfare state.
Am I the only one who was offended by both the money and the letter?
