Owner Of Chevrolet Corvette Gives A Sensible Reply When A Person Said That The Money For His Car Could Feed Thousands Of People
Tom Nicolson, owner of a Chevrolet Corvette, a luxury sports car manufactured by Chevrolet was told by a person that the money for his car could thousands of people, and I am sure most of the people would agree on it.
But, wait until you read Tom’s reply which will surely open up your mind as it is very sensible. He posted his reply on Facebook and it totally makes sense.
He said: I replied I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components that went into it, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people in Decatur IL. at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore.
It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer and fed the people working at the dealership and their families. BUT,… I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.
That is the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality. When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets, and give them dignity for their skills.
When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self worth. Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value. Socialism is taking your money against your will and shoving something down your throat that you never asked for.
I’ve decided I can’t be politically correct anymore. (I never was, actually)
Do you agree with Tom?
