"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." Thomas Jefferson
Scott Hodge and Neil Cavuto:
Jefferson also remarked, “Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.”
The government uses welfare to buy enough votes from the poor in order to take from the middle class and give to the rich. The government also divides people into identity groups in order to make promises to each group instead of promoting equality for all.
The immoral system is feeding on itself now. All we can do is try to protect ourselves as best we can. The system has to be allowed to fail on its own.
