Let’s stipulate from the onset of this post that not everyone patronizing government assistance programs in this abysmal Obama economy is a moocher, Save Jerseyans. Okay?
But let’s not delude ourselves, either, in a good-intentioned yet dangerously misguided attempt to avoid offending friends, coworkers and neighbors. When the wealthiest nation on earth is spending 70% of its take on dependence programs, most of those funds aren’t finding their way to the widows of war veterans with five kids and genuinely down-on-their-luck but otherwise hard-working American taxpayers. Nope!
At that point, we’re paying to perpetuate a destructive culture of dependency that succeeds only in creating more dependents…
…(h/t The Heritage Foundation):
Mitt Romney’s “controversial” 47% remarks were only “controversial” to the (1) ignorant and (2) those who benefit from exploiting other folks’ ignorance. Taken together with HUGE defense spending cuts looming in the new year and equally massive Obamacare-related tax increases effective January 1st, it’s impossible NOT to see how this President is turning our country into a European-style social democracy.
President’s Obama ultimate goal isn’t American prosperity; he’s aiming for American dependency. You don’t need to watch ‘2013’ to figure that out, Save Jerseyans. It’s all in the numbers. See above.
