What went wrong, happened a long time ago and that is, The Democrat(now Socialist)Party learned from the USSR, Adolf Hitler, and other Nations, that by giving the free loaders what the workers earned, they could buy the votes of the free loaders. And, to maintain power is simple, create more free loaders.
That's what aTyrannical Gov't does.....Obama is now.......our Dictator.
What's left to do? A revolution & another Civil War.
