I know you know deep down inside that these aren't the reasons for the decline Folkertsma refers to, but you're apparently blinded by ideology. What has 70+ years of Welfare, originally designed for a very narrow part of our population, brought us now? What have been the economic and sociological effects of almost 50 years of LBJ's Great Society on our nation? What do you think the unbridled spending OT this Administration, in its attempts to quadruple-down on the previous one be for our nation? I trust the chains of further subjugation will lie more easily around your neck than mine.
