“When the people find that they can vote themselves money,
that will herald the end of the republic.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Almost 50% of the populace are reliant on the Government’s graces. That’s the end.
Unless, the people wise up and take the bitter pill of responsibility.
But what are the chances these days in an entitlement society where a near majority expect other people to pick up part or all of their check.
Where Health care is now “a right”.
It’s someone else’s money. They have to earn it, and you deserve. It has to be taken from them and given to you. And that’s only “right”.
You don’t care. YOU NEED IT. YOU WANT IT.
You can’t LIVE without it.
So anyone who wants to take away your candy is a “bad man”.
Sacrifice is not in your nature. You aren’t your grandparents, who were part of the generations that sacrificed but then also created this mess. Oh, sure it was out of good intentions. But now that’s just the road to socialist hell.
And don’t expect the government to reform itself. They aren’t there for the money, but the power that the money brings to them.
And they are growing in power everyday.
So you have the incestuous drug addict scenario I laid out years ago.
The people are addicted to the “free” money they believe they must have. The Politicians are addicted to the power promising (or fear mongering) that money gets them that power.
So two co-dependent drug addicts sink the ship for the rest of us.
And the ones who protest, are the “extremist” “domestic terrorist” “crazies” that no one likes.
Chris “tinkle up my Leg” Matthews: ‘When you look at Cruz you can see the insurgent right in all its indignant victimhood,’
If you remember what Speaker Pelosi said in July 2010:
“Let me say that unemployment insurance… is one of the biggest stimuluses (sic) to our economy. Economists will tell you, this money is spent quickly. It injects demand into the economy, and it’s job creating. It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”
So unemployment is good for everyone!
The adults in a crowd are the bad guys in a nation of drug-addicted children who will lash out at you viciously if you try and take their candy away or expect them to go on a diet.
They want what they want when they want it and they want it now!!!
Obama: “I don’t want to hear the same old stuff about how America can’t afford to invest in the things that have always made us strong. Don’t tell me we can afford to shut down the government, which cost our government billions of dollars, but we can’t afford to invest in our education system,” he said in a speech.
So cutting spending is only about cutting HIS agenda items and the items that most hurt YOU. Not which best benefit you. The only benefits he wants is even more power and control.
Obama “reiterated a shared principle that we should focus first and foremost on how we can grow our economy and create good jobs with good wages for middle class families,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said aboard Air Force One.
And look how well it’s work so far… 🙂
Wait until the full weight of ObamaCare crushes the economy.
But never fear the Hyper-Partisan is here, it will be the Republicans/Tea Partys/Big Insurance’s Fault!
Not the fault of the lawmakers who exempted themselves from it.
No, they are “good” and too proud and elite for that.
But will the people be smart enough to figure this out.
Drug Addiction is a very nasty beast. It clouds your better judgment.
Besides, do you want to say to your kids and grand kids, “Whoops! Sorry, we screwed up and now we’ll all have to sacrifice so that YOUR grand kids will have a better life. Not YOU.”
Not a chance in Socialist Hell!!!
So the death spiral will continue.
And that’s the way I see it.
Obama: “We need a budget that is responsible, that is fiscally prudent, but a budget that cuts what we don’t need, closes wasteful tax loopholes that don’t create jobs, freeing up resources to invest in the things that actually do help us grow, things like education and scientific research and infrastructure – roads, bridges, airports,” he said.
A ‘responsible budget’ wouldn’t spend more than we take in. Do you think that will happen?
‘wasteful tax loopholes’ aka tax increases on rich people and companies to pay from the increased spending, which COSTS jobs and lowers the revenue coming in so they have do even more of it. After all, you wouldn’t want to be seen as being favorable to “greedy” corporations after all…
Socialist eventually run out of other people’s money. But by then the people are decimated.
wasteful were all those “non-esssential” jobs during the shutdown. Wasteful is 15 Different Food Stamp Programs. But every one them is “essential” to someone’s agenda or someone’s pocket. The waster is also in your neighbor’s yard, not yours.
Wasteful is ObamaCare and it’s Commodore 64 website.
But since the Democrats are still pissed off about the Sequester (a 2% cut in an increase in spending) what do think they say about REAL cuts: ARMAGEDDON!
And The Republicans: The toothless, let’s just get along, “I’m not a racist” Please love me!, I don’t like the Tea Party Either crowd?
