Just to clarify for many. I believe most would define a "taker" as anyone who votes for a politician because of that politician's promise to give them some direct personal economic benefit. Therefore, a taker includes those on welfare, government workers, and private sector employees whose company and job depends on funding from the government. That doesn't mean that every welfare recipient, government worker, etc. are takers. It is the mindset of voting to receive a direct personal economic benefit which is given by taking from someone else that makes them a "taker".
