Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Save your local economy

The 3 50 project

This is very easy to do and can save jobs and your local economy.  Just shop a little each month at independently owned stores.  This would be the local hardware, baker, farm market, or artist, spend a little money with them each money, and make a difference.  For every $100.00 spent at in independently owned store, $68.00 stay in the community, where with the big box stores only $43.00 stays.  Follow the link below to read more.  It starts with one person, is that person you?
