The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
Understands that socialism will kill the United States.
Harrison began his speech by paraphrasing Benjamin Franklin. Rick said: You have the right to pursue happiness; it’s up to you to catch it. The problem is that many people believe that happiness should be delivered to them by the government.
Receiving free stuff is addictive, and giving other people money away is easy. Unfortunately for takers and givers, people who are financing this arrangement (the tax-payers) lost their patience, and electing Donald Trump to be the President of the United States is the first step on the way to cut the takers off the money supply.
Socialism, Communism, Marxism — these are weapons of economic-mass-destruction. Anyone who tells you different is lying to you. People promoting these ideas use the money they take from productive members of society and use it to pay for freebies they give to anyone willing to accept them.
By doing this, they create an underclass of government-dependent citizens who, in exchange for free stuff, make sure that people running that system, stay in power. The problem is that eventually, the money stream always dries out. Always.
In the end, the productive population is taxed-out of existence, and everyone, willingly or not, needs government assistance. Unfortunately, by that time, there’s no one left who can pay for it.
The less rules and regulations, the more businesses that will open. Bernie Sanders wants to tax me at 90%. Why would I want to open up a business if I’m not going to make no money?

The last thought.
Every time the government gives something away “for free,” people who accept the freebie pay a very high price for it. But because they don’t pay for it in dollars and cents, they think it is free.
Guess what. It’s not free. Government freebies come with a very high price tag. But instead of reaching into one’s wallet, looking for dollars, the government takes the payment in much more valuable currency.
The name of that currency is FREEDOM.
