An American living in Milan Italy wrote today asking for my assistance and of Catholic who will help pray for a worthy workman in the field.

“I am writing to you because a friend of mine in my parish (the Duomo of Monza), Prof. Mario Palmaro, one of Italy’s most active lay Catholic apologists (especially against secular relativism), was just diagnosed with an unexpected and massive colon tumor that has spread to his liver. 

“He apparently does not have much hope of recovery, even though chemotherapy was started this week.  Mario is 44 years old, and has a wife and four wonderful children who depend on him. It is a truly dramatic situation as his wife does not work- she has dedicated her life to caring for the children and is active in Catholic outreach and catechesis efforts here in the Milan Archdiocese.”

Please pray for Professor Mario Palmaro!

The folks who are getting the FREE STUFF don’t like the folks who are paying for the FREE STUFF, because the folks who are paying for the FREE STUFF can no longer afford to pay for both the FREE STUFF and their own stuff.

And, the folks who are paying for the FREE STUFF want the FREE STUFF to stop.

And the folks who are getting the FREE STUFF want even more FREE STUFF on top of the FREE STUFF they are already getting!

Now… the people who are forcing the people who pay for the FREE STUFF have told the people who are RECEIVING the FREE STUFF that the people who are PAYING for the FREE STUFF are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So… the people who are GETTING the FREE STUFF have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the FREE STUFF by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their FREE STUFF and giving them the FREE STUFF in the first place.

We have let the FREE STUFF giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting FREE STUFF than paying for the FREE STUFF.

All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded.   The reason?

The voters figured out they could vote themselves FREE STUFF from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them FREE STUFF from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 236 years ago.   The number of people now getting FREE STUFF outnumbers the people paying for the FREE STUFF.  

We have one chance to change that in 2012. Failure to change that spells huge problems for the United States as we know it.
