The Streets Are Paved With Gold

Immigrants coming to this country around the beginning of the last century came because they heard the streets were paved with gold! Obviously the streets were not physically made of gold. It was the opportunities that were golden. They came here because they heard everyone had the opportunity to become wealthy if you were honest and worked hard. Many did become wealthy and most made a better life for their children. My grandparents came through Ellis Island. They didn't come here for the benefits, they came here because they wanted a job and FREEDOM! My grandparents were Polish who escaped from Russia to take advantage of the freedom and opportunities in this country.

What's my point?

Progressive candidates have been promoting class warfare for years. They say some people make too much money. They want to tax successful people. They want to limit or eliminate success and many people agree with them.

Step back and think about it. Do you want to take those opportunities away from your sons and daughters, brothers or sisters? What if your son or daughter wanted to start a busines? What if they became successful and made more than $250,000 a year? Would you penalize them? I don't think so.

America is free, but freedom is expensive. Sometimes you will even have to sacrifice your life, your fortune and your sacred honor. Please don't limit our opportunities!
