The problem is that they allow the criminal and welfare elements to vote. This is a problem that was foreseen by Ben Franklin 200+ years ago. He wrote that "The Republic will last only untl the people realize that they can vote themselves largesse from the public coffers." As long as the welfare crowd can vote for ever increasing benefits and their criminal offspring are allowed to run wild in the streets without fear of punishment, this country will keep heading down the road to its own destruction. We are headed towards an economic collapse that the truly wealthy won't be effected by, the middle class will be destroyed by, and the poor will die of starvation. These kinds of collapses alwasy end in armed revolt.
