The Golden Rule
“Those that have the gold, make the rules!”
To further compound the problem, there is this prevailing tendency in the current crop of Americans to look to government solutions to what they think is a problem that is outside themselves. “I don’t have any money to buy a home (go to college, buy food, endure an emergency, care for my health, maintain the lifestyle that I desire, etc.) so there should be some sort of government program to provide these things for me. I have a right to them.”
Succumbing to these feelings produces a huge burden on your financial future — the price must be paid. You will always be at the mercy of the ones that have the gold!
