Nana, do what you can protect them. Unfortunately, you have to realize this is no longer the US we grew up in. The new normal is dependence, decay, and debt. Imagine Detroit on a national scale.

Democrats have been capitalizing on this shift while Republicans take on the impossible task of attempting to explain to the dependents that all of the hand outs are unsustainable and harmful. Unfortunately, like trying to take away candy from a spoiled child through reason, our efforts have been unsuccessful.
