As jobs continue to flee our country, more and more people simply can’t find work. After a few weeks or months, they simply give up. Regardless of what bullshit statistics the government reports, our economy is shrinking, and that means less jobs. So, now people that used to work or want to work can’t find work and are joining the millions that have never worked. The Welfare and disability roles are absolutely exploding. The entitlement bus is getting more and more packed every day. In Rome, the “right to relief was hereditary”, Welfare entitlement was passed from generation to generation. So it is today. The bread is supplied by 46 million SNAP cards, and the circus is supplied by big screen T.V.s, iphones, and satellites, all provided for free to entitlement recipients.
This is no longer a trend. Given our contracting economy, and $500 billion leaving our country every year in the trade deficit (so people can buy Japanese and Korean cars, and piles of Chinese crap), it is only going to get bigger and bigger. Being an entitlement recipient is the new normal. It’s not reserved just for girls having kids while in high school any longer. The number of people that do work will continue to support a larger and larger entitlement class. Obama and the democrats will continue spending and borrowing money to support these voters.
Today, the number of American adults that can’t take care of themselves is at an all-time record high. So what are we going to do if the number of people dependent on the government keeps going up? Some folks like to point out that most Americans that have recently become dependent on the government would rather be working, but because of a lack of jobs they have gotten into a position where they cannot take care of themselves anymore.
