Thankful For Plenty

Editorial - November 24th, 2009 - Investors Business Daily

Thanksgiving, as we all learned in school, was about Native Americans and Pilgrims feasting together in friendship to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. The truth, as is often the case, is quite different.

We've all heard about how the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth after a perilous overseas trip — and how they nearly starved until Native Americans, including the English-speaking Squanto and Wampanoag Chief Massasoit, helped them to survive by teaching them about native foods and cultivation.

There's some truth to that. The Indians did help out. But a bigger reason for why they survived to give thanks — and one that gets short shrift today — can be summed up in one word: capitalism.

The socialist school teachers don't like that lesson though. A hundred years ago, that simple lesson was a key part of the story. Today, it is completely ignored. Do you have any reason to believe that children taught almost exclusively by socialists, who blur the meaning of our history, will have any love for our nation and its culture?

Why is anyone surprised that children raised on such deceit are the only generation that still supports the socialist, Barack Obama. 61% of our young still believe in socialism and Obama. Not a single older generation segment still supports him.

For those who still understand what makes our nation great, Happy Thanksgiving. For those too brain washed to get it, a little guidance. Please listen. There is nothing complicated about what made America great. The lessons are as simple as the real story of Thanksgiving.
