Thank you, glenn183. Big government is entangling more and more people in their web of dependency while promising each new recruit the sun, moon, and stars -- paid for by the private sector. Creating dependency -- that's what they do best. What people don't get is that the government giveth and the government taketh away. Dependents are at the mercy of these whims. Conversely, private sector workers have far more control over their future and finances, but this sector is being strangled. Where will all that lovely money come from to pay the gov't workers when the private sector is in ruins?
