Too many uninformed, ignorant and dependent voters. What would one expect? Can or will Atlas shrug?

My wife and I did our own version of Atlas Schrugged 20 years ago. I "retired " 20 years ago ( I was a mechanic - not rich, just fed up with the whole tax and spend bunch) and my wife hung it up 17 years ago. We were both in our fifties. We do now receive Social Security and Medicare ( we are in our 70's ), but the first several years we did it own our own. Lived a simple life style, but didn't send much taxes to the crazy folks, known as politicians ) in Wash D C. If it weren't for family, we would probably just leave the country. I served in the military in my youth, but it seem it was all for not! The U S is dying!!
The world is too much with us; late and soon.
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature that is ours

I find it amazing that America is saddled with $16.0 trillion in debt, and yet lawmakers are haggling over how much to tax productive citizens. It's so insulting and so bass-ackwards, I want to scream. But it's not only a primordial outcry because of a policy that penalizes all the hours, weeks, months, and years of work and sacrifice, but also the drubbing of disrespect that has been part of the campaign. It's worked as the majority...
