What's sad but true, is the takers view government borrowing as the 'free money express' of unlimited resources. It doesn't appear that any of that "free Money" will ever get paid back before our currence collapses. So what do we do? Among the things that worked so far is called "workfare" Require some work to be exchanged for the support. We had that until september when Obama decided to become more politically popular by stopping it, because he had just allowed illegal aliens access to the jobs of the welfare clients. Another thing that works is limits to the government assistance.

Open boarders, big defaense cuts and a free pass to income tax for anyone that wants it.

This wont take long.

A few days after the election of 2012 the very talented Michael Ramirez published a political cartoon that perhaps conveyed a more profound meaning than he anticipated. He depicted a pair of hands extending from star-studded sleeves (presumably from a mendicant Uncle Sam), which were held in supplication, as though waiting for a handout or petitioning voters to relinquish more of their earnings to the federal government. There’s another way of interpreting this image, however; the hands appeared not only pathetic and a bit contemptible, but also aged and withered, as though belonging to an old man. In which case,...
