Editor:

This once awesome nation, the brilliant snowcap on a distant mountain, the welcome light at the end of the dark road is no more. It has been bludgeoned to death by its own generosity.

This nation is now home to a huge and extremely greedy entitlement class of people, who truly believe they are entitled to the fruits of someone else’s labor, and will readily vote for the person who will see they get it.

It is only a matter of time before the producers in this country are totally overwhelmed by these people and their liberal acolytes in government. I don’t even want to think about what happens next. It will not be good.

We are $16 trillion in debt now and Obama wants to borrow more. Our economic collapse is imminent; the only way out of this is for Obama to confiscate all the assets of private individuals and businesses. And make no mistake about it, this man is capable of doing it.

This nation had a chance to elect to the presidency the most awesomely capable man I have seen in my lifetime (little secret ... it was not Obama) to lead us back to prosperity and freedom. But the huge/greedy entitlement class, true to its intellect, chose “president zero.”

If you jump to section 4 you get past the math and to the historical analysis.

Beji.....Excellent suggestion. I read enough to recognize the comparison to the present day. I will have to admit that I lost a bit of interest when I got to the formulas.

At the risk of injecting a real comment in this thread, I suggest you google "The Curley Effect: The Economics of Shaping the Electorate" by some Harvard PHDs. Obama's game is a very old one.
