American got along just fine before all these infernal entitlements were created by commie FDR.
And we also got along just fine prior to the income tax created under Wilson.
There is no reason we cannot do so again.
In a perfect world, we would do away with the income tax, end all entitlements, and repeal every law passed since 1946, especially the 64/68 civil rights acts and the 65 immigration act.
That would fix all our problems in one fell swoop.
