Everybody wants to be rich. It’s the American dream to be rich; even though not everyone is able to achieve it.
To be honest, I would like to be rich myself. When I was in high school, my dream was to be a rich singer/actor living in California. That was before California became home of the fruits and nuts, the crazy Leftist Liberals. I still love to be rich enough to retire. I would love to see my blog goes viral; so that I can live off my blog, and make money off it.
If those who thinks that a person can get rich off Socialism, I got news for you; that’s not going to happen. The only one that get rich off Socialism is the Government. Not only do they get rich financially, they get rich with power; and they just abuse it to take advantage anyone they can.
Under Socialism, these casino wouldn’t exist, because the government would put their foot down to control them.

Those who had won huge amounts in the lottery, had ended up losing a lot of it because of foolishness. They spent it foolishly instead of investing it. When a person comes into money, a person should find ways to make the money works for them, by seeking a good long term investments.

The gambling industry is a big industry right now. Everyone is looking for a quick get rich scheme. When I heard that a person can get rich by writing blogs, I thought, I can do it. It’s not an easy fix! It’s takes lots of work. If you’re not up to the challenge why bother with it, you will just fizzle right out. Like anything, you got to work hard for it.
We’re become a nation of lazy people, who wants money handed to them. They want the Government to take care of them; that way they don’t have to do any hard work.
Any money you may get through gambling, the government will just take it away and pocket it for themselves.

This is one reason why some are easy prey to scammers who will offer you ways to get rich quick scheme. Don’t fall for their schemes! You work hard for your money to blow it foolishly.
