The lesson we learn from the re-election of Barack Obama yesterday is that people who want money from the government outnumber those paying the tab and will vote for whichever guy offers them a raise, no matter how much the guy's past performance damaged the nation as a whole. It’s a gloomy thought and it’s difficult to imagine the republic surviving this watershed moment.The rest here.
Here’s some quick dirty arithmetic:
The population of the United States is 312 million with15 million of them either federal government employees or full-time contractors of the federal government, 20 million of them state or municipal employees, 47 million of them on food stamps, 4.5 million of them on welfare, 2 million of them in prison,5.5 million of them receiving unemployment compensation, 14 million of them receiving federal disability payments, 40 million of them retired and receiving Social Security, 1.4 million of them in the military, 75 million of them children, and 14.6 million of them full time college students.Bottom line: we have 164 million adult human beings dependent upon 73 million workers to support them... a ratio of more than two to one.
Every productive American worker carries two people on his back, works three days for one day’s pay, and then walks into the voting booth on Election Day knowing his vote is outnumbered two-to-one by votes of the people he supports... who want more and more, and feel more and more entitled to what they’re getting.
It’s a hopeless situation. Sooner or later the productive people will shrug off the load and quit.
Those dirty Occupy people you saw camped out downtown in cities across the country? They run the place now. And they want shit – free shit. Medical care, cellphones, food, and housing. It’s all free now, and if you aren’t getting your fair share of the free shit, the government will provide a free lawyer to sue for it. And if you have any doubts about which political party is offering the free shit, here’s a YouTube video of people handing out free government-paid cellphones in return for your vote for Obama. They call them “Obama phones.”
