learn 'Obama Plan' the hard way
An economics professor at a
well-known college recently made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that President Barack Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, let's try an experiment in this class
with Obama's plan".
The experiment was a simple one: After each exam, all grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone
received a B. The students who studied hard were upset, and the students who studied little were happy.
As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little
now studied even less, and the ones who had studied hard
now decided they wanted a free ride too, so they studied little.
The second test average was a D.
Now no one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings, and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
All the students failed, to their great surprise.
The genius professor pointed out to them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is
great the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
Couldn't be any simpler than that.
