Agree with you Lois. I used to belief this land was the land of opportunity. I am afraid it has changed to land of free sh*t. "Come on in, the government will give you everything because you "deserve" your fair share. Doesn't matter if we can't pay for it. Keep handing it out because it garners votes. Its Socialism plain and simple. Create a dependent society that is reliant on big government and soon, they all work for you. that's not freedom. Republicans believe in opportunity. If one get's their backside out of bed, and off the couch, and uses their brain, braun and courage, one can create something and they get to keep it. That day seems to be gone. the achievers, will stop achieving or move elsewhere. No doubt.
I don't understand why the educated cannot see it. I have siblings, who are well off and remain democrats when they are going to get hammered. The concept of fiscal responsibility seems to escape these types. Why? We wouldn't run our family budgets or our businesses like this. Why is it ok to do so for our governments? yes because we can print money to cover the debt, but eventually that will devalue the currency and inflation will show up. The main stream media is is I believe the complicit lapdog and in any regime, controlling the media is the method of controlling the people. Control the people and you can steal them blind. See recent article on Susan Rice owning the Keystone pipeline company. Would not be surprised if she bought it after it had been rejected on the permitting, thus reducing its price and making an approval a sure winner for profits when the stock rises. this should be looked at in detail. It seems like a conflict beyond belief. Regardless, socialism is here, it is in France and it is here till we suffer the debacle which surely is coming and the media wakes up. The media is the ultimate weapon of socialism.
