If anyone cares to notice just how far America has fallen, consider that for the first time in our history there are more people who get some sort of food assistance from government sources than there are working full-time here in the United States. Yep, you heard me right. 101 million people are getting some sort of assistance with their basic costs of living and only 97 million full-time workers are footing that bill – among many others piling up in Obama’s folly.
See any problems there? Could it be that we are approaching the point here in our country where government disbursements in danger of exceeding revenues?
I find it extraordinarily difficult to find accurate, up-to-date information on the number of taxpayers who keep this circus afloat, since the most recent figures end at the tax year of 2008. Even with that incomplete accounting, it appears that there are approximately 142 million “tax filers” and roughly one-third of that number pay no federal income tax at all – not only that, but a substantial number of that category actually receive money from the IRS in the form of the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit provisions.
If this information has caused you to begin scratching your head in perplexity, then you have only an vague inkling of the swamp that is our government’s financial activities (and we haven’t even included the implications of the Affordable Health Care Act, which will place an enormous burden on the already groaning taxpayer base). This has not occurred by accident.
Over the past four years, thanks to an unfortunate mix of greed, cupidity and stupidity on the part of a significant segment of the voting public (which was unfortunately repeated during the last Presidential election), a budding plutocracy has been established through the instigation of incessant class warfare, lawlessness, obfuscation, crony capitalism and with the complicity of a Congress who has forgotten that it was elected to serve – not dictate.
In this particular case, rule by the wealthy will evolve ostensibly through Obama’s stated goal of the redistribution of wealth to “those in need”; although the handouts are intended initially to mold a subservient and compliant public before the assets of the nation finally come to rest with those who have grasped power through demagoguery and chicanery.
This is the historic path favored by the socialists throughout the past century or so and its results are clearly visible in the form of the European Union which rules through bureaucratic fiat and ignoring the wishes of the members of its client states.
And it is also the vision that forms the core of the policies pursued by Barack Obama and his cronies, the remaking of America – a once proud, independent and productive nation – into just another deteriorating Western society. Apparently this is a vision agreeable to those who support and voted for him.
The rot becomes more and more noticeable, but for those who yearn for the America where success was obtainable through hard work and buying into the American dream, where there was a national moral and ethical cohesion, where a civil society existed, where divisiveness was something to overcome, not emulate …… well, there is nowhere left to turn
You surely won’t find solace under sharia law.
