You Could Be One Of The "Wealthy"
It's Still Possible If You Take Personal Responsibility
Start a business on the side, and work in your spare time to grow it. Put that extra money aside as a hedge against the evils of the day: layoffs, downsizing, cutbacks, inflation. Learn the investment secrets that your financial advisor only wishes she knew; learn how to be one of the informed few who profits from the coming economic storm when most others lose it all. And stay healthy enough to enjoy it long after others have become dependent on low-quality government medical care.
Sound like a lot of hard work? Some of it is... but these days, when you become an internet entrepreneur, what you invest in time, energy, and money comes back to you tenfold. And that's how you can be one of the "wealthy" society's liberal leaders resent so much.
The key is personal responsibility. There are two types of person out there: the Victim, and the Entrepreneur. The Victim assumes it's someone else's job to take care of him, and in times like these he quickly becomes dependent upon government beneficence. The Entrepreneur depends on herself, and often takes care of the people around her with her combination of business acumen and generosity. The Victim knows it all; you can't convince him there's any way to profit in economic times such as these. The Entrepreneur is a learning machine; she knows she has a lot to learn, but trusts that she can learn the secrets to wealth because she will persist until she does. The Victim takes what he can get; the Entrepreneur takes personal responsibility for making what she can make in her world.
The eerily-accurate economic and societal prophecies of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" are coming true all around us, more and more each day. The liberal "statists," patient in their progressive plan to take over America and the global economy through "evolution" instead of "revolution," now have real control of the essential U.S. institutions... and they're coming for your money. But if enough of us resist the temptation to let them "take care" of us, we can keep them from taking control of us.
What can you do today to start on the Entrepreneur's journey? Think about how truly independent you are; consider whether you're exercising all the personal responsibility you can and should. You need to make yourself one of the wealthy. Your liberal brother-in-law will be needing a loan one of these days.
