We now have over half our electorate receiving some form or other of unearned "entitlement". That half lives off the largess of the gov't and pays NO income taxes are never going to vote for anybody who expounds conservative values. Why should they? That half has all their needs (and then some) provided for free. Their alternative is work, self reliance and personal responsibility. They will never welcome that over "obamaphones". The only way to save our once great republic is to disenfranchise all these non-taxpaying deadbeats. Next, we have to eliminate all the voter fraud that is now rampant in our election system. Also, we must STOP all illegal immigration. These criminals are exacerbating items one and two.

You are correct that we now have over half of the country living off of the other half. That cannot last. The problem is that we want military. The other problem is that the Social Security Ponzi scheme has defrauded millions of people of money that they earned.

In order to afford a military and somehow right the wrong of Social Security, we do need to increase the number of people working and decrease the numbe of true free loaders.

Indeed, it is the path of least resistance.
