4th Gen,

You are absolutely right and in tune with our founders and one of our greatest presidents. "When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the beginning of the end of the Republic." Benjamin Franklin. "You cannot make a poor man rich by making a rich man poor." Abraham Lincoln.

Progressivism has placed into the minds of many of our fellow citizens for years, that every citizen in our country, regardless of effort, deserves to have an equal outcome as those who have truly succeeded through their own efforts. This is way to enslave even more and more citizens and thereby garner their votes in all these successive elections. The most recent examples of this are the extended unemployment benefits, the class warfare efforts to attack the evil rich, the increased tax holiday, not tax 'cuts', offered as an enticement to more Americans to obtain their votes. The latter, in itself, takes in no regard to the further bankrupcy of the Social Security system that is already unfunded. The scare is thrown in that if you don't vote for me next time you will lose these "freebies" and have to be 'strictly on your own again' as the flawed Constitution suggests. Think about how many people have bought into this idea! But, that's human nature.

Until we finally understand that liberty and freedom offered to us by the founders is what built this beautiful experiment, we will continue our downhill spiral into an abyss that is unescapable.

Everyone seems to want everyone else to sacrifice for them in hard times. The idea of struggling out of our temporary pit on our own seems to be almost a lost thought in today's society.

Welcome to European style socialism. Seems to have worked out just fine for them, hasn't it?! Just sayin'.
