    The real reason Romney lost is that he said, "When I'm elected, I will put Americans back to work," and 51% of the voting public said, "SCREW THAT!"

    His 47% statement is still the truest thing we're likely to hear out of a Presidential candidate in a long time.

    Buzz-gun, it pretty well validates what Tytler said: "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury."

    No question. If people are rewarded for irresponsible and reckless behaviors, personal responsibility is minimized....people will continue to be irresponsible, self-destructive and dependent and see no need to change....

    A vicious cycle, really: reward the irresponsible and tell them the "rewards" will only continue if they vote for you.....

    Eventually, however, the dependent masses will continue to multiply and chaos will ensue when all the goodies have been "given out".....
