The moral of the story? Demography is destiny. We are becoming a Third World nation. It won't be like Sweden / Denmark / Norway / Finland where well educated and hard working populations can manage a high quality of life despite the disincentives of large social benefits. No, we'll be a divided nation working to keep our enormous underclass in the laborless luxury they came here seeking. Patrick, in another age you would be called prophet, but we live in times of such deceit that telling the truth truly is a revolutionary act.

Not really. But America is looking more and more like Imperial Rome by the minute. The Roman Empire succumbed to increasingly expensive militarism and a welfare system that would be recognized by many a welfare queen. At one point, people will simply stop being more productive and then you will see the decay of the nation.
"What the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote, and that strategy worked."

Thus did political analyst Mitt Romney identify the cause of his defeat in a call to disconsolate contributors.

Republicans piled on. "Completely unhelpful," Gov. Bobby Jindal told Wolf Blitzer. We don't advance the "debate by insulting folks."

"A terrible thing to say," Chris Christie told Joe Scarborough. "You can't expect to be the leader of all the people and be divisive."

Oh. Was not...
