The only question is the date. There is a date certain when some subsequent Government (read President) will have to take away the money that has been spread around for decades to influence voting patterns. BEFORE I GO FURTHER IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE IN INTERNET LAND WHO BELIEVES THE BORROWED MONEY WILL CONTINUE TO BE HANDED OUT FOR FREE? Well, then, what will people do when they have to live only on their own earnings? And,when there are ABSOLUTELY NO JOBS FOR ONE IN FOUR WORKERS? In the Great Depression, most people either lived, or had family WHO LIVED ON A FARM! They could raise some food!!!

SOOOOO, if even Democrats, bought and paid for with money they did not earn realize you cannot keep borrowing almost half of the money, then what explains their refusal to amend their ways? Do they continue to believe, as the song says in MY FAIR LADY, "With A Little Bit of luck, SOMEONE ELSE WILL DO THE BLOOMIN WORK?"

Are there that many in America who believe there is plenty of money in "OBAMA'S STASH" or somewhere and it has just been "Squirreled Away" By the super rich? Or have they become so dependant on the Government that they don't know that people are supposed to think for themselves?

Yes, there are. And they have been conditioned to feel no shame in collecting the benefits of someone else's labors. I've dealt with them in the past and they have NO sense of shame about it. In fact, many of them take pride in their ability to game the system to their benefit. Don't want to live in an apartment but don't want to pay rent on a house? Get a divorce and your (faux) ex-wife can now qualify for an emergency multi bedroom townhouse from the city housing authority for under $100 a month including utilities. Just make sure that you leave for your $50k a year OTR truck driving job before 9 am Monday and don't get back until after 5 pm on Friday and you can live virtually rent free!! I kid you not. I've seen it done.

When they have used the last credit card of the American tax payer, and have run the American ship of state on the rocks, that's when the real tyranny comes in!
