The Nine Virtues That Can Restore America
Eric Bolling | June 29, 2016
The America we live in today isn’t the America I grew up in.
In just the last few years. We’ve been dealt a steady dose of liberal progressivism: president Obama famously uttered, “if you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that, someone else made it happen.”
With all due respect to the community organizers, this is coming from a president who never held a real job prior to getting into elected office.
I was born and raised on the northwest side of Chicago, the son of poor, working-class parents who did everything they could to make a better life for my sister and I. I dreamed I’d be rich one day. I was taught hard work would put me on the path to prosperity. It did. And yet every day liberals are happily flaunting the redistribution of wealth while flying in their private jets from one conference to the next.
Hard work got me drafted by the Pirates, and then – when an injury put an end to my baseball ambitions, I entered the big leagues of capitalism, trading oil and gas on wall street. That led eventually to my rewarding TV career.
America’s Millennials think everything should be provided for them. By the government. For free. Why? Because they’re told it should.
How do we do it? By remembering the “virtues” that make us the greatest nation on earth. I believe there are nine — all essential to my own personal success.
Grit – when Americans get knocked down, we get back up.
Profit – it’s a dirty word for the left — but the motive for profit makes people work harder, innovate, take risks.
