Henry Ford on Government Entitlements

Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him, better take a closer look at the American Indian.”

  1. True enough. But, can we say the same about those on Social Security? Or on Medicare? And what about those in the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Depression? And then there’s the Veterans Administration. . .

    And while I’m at it, what about the corporate welfare agribusiness gets. I think we can safely say that they are “happy and prosperous” and the government certainly is taking care of them through massive subsidies. And then there’s the auto industry. How many times has Chrysler been bailed out? The “Big Three” are still here only because the government took care of them.


  2. I like it, but I would like to know the source of the quote. When, and where did he say it?


    1. If you Google the quote you’ll find a number of his sayings and websites dedicated to honoring his legacy. Hope this reply is helpful.
