    There was a chemistry professor in a large college who had some exchange
    students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the professor
    noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and
    stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what
    was the
    matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been
    shot while fighting Communists in his native country who were trying to
    overthrow his country's government and install a new Communist regime.

    While telling his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange
    question: 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?' The professor thought it
    was a
    joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said that it was no
    joke. 'You
    catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on
    the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free
    corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one
    side of
    the place where they are used to coming. 'When they get used to the fence,
    they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the
    fence. They
    get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all
    four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, used
    to the
    free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You
    then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. 'Suddenly the wild pigs
    have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but
    are trapped. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to
    it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so
    they accept their captivity.'

    The young man then told the professor that this is exactly what he sees
    happening in America . The government keeps pushing us toward
    and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as
    supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco
    subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare,
    housing, school programs, medicine, drugs, etc. We continually lose our
    freedoms, just a little at a time. We should always remember two truths:
    There is
    no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a
    service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself. If you see that all of
    this wonderful government 'help' is a problem confronting the future of
    freedom in America, you might want to send this on to your friends.

    If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will
    probably delete this email.
    God help us when the gate slams shut!

    There are voices crying in the wilderness to no avail.

    Does history truly repeat itself?
