Well I most certainly do agree that the collapse of a nation or society is imminent, when the takers outnumber the producers or when vested interest is in the minority. Unfortunately, we are passed this point and with baby boomers retiring left and right in the coming years, no amount or militia of hamburger flippers will be found to subsidize, when that is all that is left.
I don't agree that any born and raised American is predisposed to be a taker....Romney suggested 47% might be, but of that number I would hope most would hope something better was obtainable. Executive handouts always evolve into “let them eat cake”. Even the lower 10% in America know not to rely on Uncle Sam for their needs. Voting for Obama did not fill the “have not” void so many of us have, it was a way of holding onto something that even Oprah referred to as “NEVER IN OUR LIFETIMES DID WE EXPECT THIS TO HAPPEN!!” So powerful a statement presented by someone who has transcended any social limitation; it is the most powerful statement I've heard in my lifetime. But at the end of the day, when all color bestowed by the light of day fades, what is left is the truth. Honor, Truth, and Integrity...sounds like a lesson Jesus hung on a cross to convey.
