Bearing The Burden

As all Americans know, it’s the wealth producers, the productive members of society, who are forced into bearing the burden of supporting and subsidizing the eaters and takers existing within our nation’s borders. What most do not, however, realize is just how critically bad the situation is now and are likely to remain.

As of 2011, 11 states have more residents on Welfare than they have citizens who are employed: Alabama, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, and South Carolina. Meanwhile, the total American workforce continues to shrink and is now at its lowest level in more than thirty years with only 63.6% of American adults employed or unemployed but still looking for work.. and 19% of them are employed by the government.

Two Things To Ponder

  1. What do you think will happen when, in the not-too-distant future, the eaters and taker equal or outnumber the makers?
  2. How bad are things already when cutting the size of government will noticeably impact national employment figures?

If anyone truly thinks that this is sustainable, they’re delusional. There just aren’t enough workers left to support the lives and lifestyles of the drones and the very measures that the government now chooses to use to deal with this just accelerate the impending collapse because those measures always include increasing taxes in order to make up some portion of the difference, which drives businesses under or overseas and stifles investment that might fund new businesses.

If you want an example of how this can play out, don’t look just at Greece. Look at Egypt!
