American Confusion and Conundrums

A friend sent me the following piece via email today. I'm not sure of the original source—it's one of those kind of emails friends forward around. But the questions it poses are very interesting.

Needless to say, as soon as you post an opinion on something, someone will argue with it. In this particular day and age, you can have something airtight and 100 percent certain and someone will still argue with it. The only time arguing will end is before the throne of God (I can't wait).

Mull these "conundrums" over a while:

Free people are not equal.  Equal people are not free.
    "A gun is like a parachute.  If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."
    The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing. 
Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America : 

    1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
    2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
    3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
    4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
    5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
    6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
    Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.
    Makes you wonder who is doing the math.
    These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:
    1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
    Funny how that works.  And here's another one worth considering...
    2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.  But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money?  What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.
    Think about it.....and Last but not least:
    3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.
    Am I the only one missing something?

A short comment regarding why we are cutting benefits for vets and military and paying benefits(read: bribes) to illegal aliens. Most, if not all, liberal, socialist Democrats want a one party government. The majority of illegal aliens will vote Democrat when they are given amnesty and citizenship by the Democrats. Dead vets vote Democrat. A small army is more easily corruptible and therefore more easily controllable(How else can you put down a revolt by gun-toting, bible-hugging Americans?). This is all part of the fundamental change envisioned by our glorious leader.
