He's No Teddy Roosevelt

by Marvin Olasky, March 31st, 2009 -

In response to those who thought that would-be helpers, even when naïve, should be cheered, Roosevelt argued, "I really do not know which quality is most productive of evil to mankind in the long run, hardness of heart or softness of head." He stated that the Bible tells each of us "to stretch out his hand to a brother who stumbles. But while every man needs at times to be lifted up when he stumbles, no man can afford to let himself be carried, and it is worth no man's while to try thus to carry someone else."

The difference between a helping hand and a free ride is all the difference in the world. Even Bill Clinton came to see that.

Socialists, Democrats and so-called progressives never will accept that.
