I'm afraid that's where it's headed. We have a voting majority that thinks government creates "stuff" by decree, and don't realize government goodies come from taxes, and those are collected from people who work for a living (NOT the 47%-ers, BTW). These people received government-approved educations. They don't know squat about US history, have never read the Constitution, and think the Founding Fathers are a group of men their mothers told them could be their father. They think Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, and Lincoln are currency units. They know zip about how government raises money. Well, they've got a big awakening coming, when the working half runs out of money, or goes on the dole itself.
