One of my sisters is a govt social worker. She's see elderly come in who qualify for Medicare/Medicaid, but are crying the blues that no one will accept M/M. And others who have no income and cannot afford even the low amount quoted for Obamacare are now getting letters from the Feds demanding Obamacare fines. How do they expect people with no income to pay the fines?
Sadly, these same people will continue to vote for the Dims, instead of voting for the Repugs to fix this mess.
PLEASE, PLEASE. PLEASE read the words of the great prophet, Thomas Jefferson and then tell me that, "Everyone should have the right to vote!" The very existence of the Republic is endangered because of people who have the right to vote themselves benefits from the Treasury. Others, unscrupulous panderers, usually Democrats, promise to vote for these benefits IF these people will only vote for them. Neither the Treasury nor the Nation itself can survive such a sustained attack.
The Dems phony war on poverty has cost almost as much as the national debt, before Obama of course, and has produced very little in the way of positive results. A new social welfare establishment has been created and that HAS benefited the millions of social "workers" on the local and federal level but very few of the intended reipients.
This will not improve. In fact it will only get worse. We even have Paul Ryan, a supposed conservative, talking about such things as immigration amnesty and thus, the creation of another dependent underclass. Instead of the penduluum swinging to the right after such devastating economic destruction as a $17+ trillion national debt and massive unemployment with millions no longer even seeking jobs, it continues leftward. BUT it has swung almost as far as it can go. No, it will not swing back. It will simply cease swinginmg at all. The Republic will be stuck in an untenable place until it all falls to pieces.
Kruschev was right; they will bury us. They already have - ender a mountain of debt which we can never repay and a professional political class which thinks nothing of anyone but themselves. I have said this before and I am ashamed to have to say it again - AMERICA IS OVER!
Birdogs has it exactly right.
Universal suffrage has NOT been good for America.
The founders NEVER INTENDED their creation to function that way and the results have PROVEN (once again) they were correct.
