The takers take refuge under foot, streets become bare, at night the cities are looted and burned. You go from serf to domestic terrorist overnight when the gift stops giving and you no food on the table. This has been building for 50 years, we have reached the tipping point... less than half of the productive citizens pay for the serfs food, housing, clothing, and medication, and we still let them vote! It will end and end badly.... keep your powder dry!

The all-time, most-viewed post on this blog is this set of cartoons showing how the welfare state begins and how it eventually becomes an unsustainable mess.

The great Chuck Asay has a cartoon that takes the next step, showing what happens when the looters and moochers who ride in the wagon get pitted against those who are pulling the wagon.

Since I’m not a Romney fan (for a bunch of reasons outlined here), I would have preferred if the cartoon didn’t imply anything about the current election and instead focused on the rhetorical question...
