The dictionary says -- means firmness of character clock indomitable spirit.
Some people think about cowboys play characters played by John Wayne Clint Eastwood maybe some people think about Patrick -- Sorenson who's hit.
Well -- a radio host who calls themselves the cowboy libertarian who argues there are bloated government is killing off -- in America we make.
We have become a dependent state we decide to -- our freedom for security.
We decided to say let the government handle these things let's just be dependent on the government.
You point out that our parents were very different.
Absolutely our parents were the ones who said.
Look you wanna go and be somebody in your life you've got to get out there and you've got to start working when you're young you've got to start doing things and you've got to demonstrate the ability to stand up on your own two feet you know the last few years we've been teaching kids in school self esteem.
Instead a self reliance.
That's a big difference.
So to stay like itself that's good well that's great that they like themselves were building a nice nation and narcissistic flip life has risk.
You can't legislate litigate or regulate -- way out of every problem some things just.
The one thing we baby rumors embraced was the welfare state and I believe that -- when I was in college this was gonna end poverty.
And it's a good example of the dependency talk about because he could look at -- a graph of what happened after the war and poverty began its true poverty dropped the first five years nine million people where helped off of poverty.
But then look what's happened since.
The lines going up and down we taught people.
To be dependent and progress stopped and even more interest and look what happened at the five years before the war and poverty.
And you see that people were lifting themselves out of poverty on their own without government.
Government in effect help the few people and then stop the progress.
Here look what else happened -- -- a good example Katrina.
Hurricane Katrina was predicted because now we have the ability -- science to know that hurricanes coming your way and it's going to hit New Orleans like powerful powerful fist.
So what happened.
People sat there.
They waited for the government to come and bring the bus to take them to safety.
I won't tell you something you got ten days warning you start walking.
You pack up your -- You -- I got to get out of here because I got to save myself I gotta get to higher ground.
Know people sat there and they said we the government comes in fix mean that we end up with a bunch of people sit in the superdome.
Have become more urbanized and more suburb -- nice and when that happens they want more things.
And the politicians are more than happy to say look we're gonna give you this we're gonna give -- this service and that service in this dependency -- that dependency.
And the people say fine fine yeah let's keep doing that which is you're doing that -- give us more goodies.
And a detailed Phil said.
Can find out that it can bribe the public with its own money it's the end of the republic well guess what congress found out how to do -- -- -- every local government and local officials so they just keep taking your tax -- say we're gonna do these wonderful things for -- instead -- -- America stand up on your own two feet again.
Another example -- you point out is that government kills gripped by offering extended.
Unemployment benefits of my crew we could learn from Denmark there.
Socialist government there once gave laid off workers five years of unemployment benefits when did.
Many -- finally find work some -- after exactly five years.
So Denmark cut benefits -- four years Danes been found jobs in four years.
Now for Denmark's limited the benefits to two years they at least are learning.
People in this country those say no we should go the other way these people are suffering unemployment -- high give more benefits.
Socialist governments in Europe are running away.
From the welfare state they're running away from the fire Americans are dousing themselves in gasoline running towards the fire that's eventually gonna burn down the whole structure because we just can't afford -- but more than that.
It's about the character of the nation.
If we keep letting the government do things for -- for us with -- what does -- say about us as a people.
