The current high number of Americans dependent on government will not remain high for very long. In any system of parasitism, the parasites must always be in the minority if the system is to stay in place. It is possible for a minority of parasites to live off a majority of productive people over a long period of time. It is not possible for a majority of parasites to live off a minority of productive people without the system's breaking down fast for economic reasons. As more and more people become desperate and turn to government for assistance, the Federal Government will simply run out of money and collapse. There will be no permanent majority of Democratic constituents endlessly living off the rest of the population.
