Romney was absolutely correct, and if the GOP does not find some way to stigmatize reliance on public largess as it once was they will never win another national election.

Thank you for perfectly stating my thought.
Sir Alexander Tytler:
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist only until voters discover that they can vote themselves largesses from the public treasury. From that time on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury...
And here we are.
Romney just stated the truth. Too bad all the others don't have the cojones to admit he's right.

(America's at an awkward stage. Too late to work within the system, too early to shoot the bastards.)

It's not the GOP's to do.
It is a culture of self reliance that needs to be rekindled in America, with someone like Reagan saying come along with me on our grander vision of America.
Can't do that with the education system FUBAR'd by the Uber Commies for the last 40 years, and this is from a Big 10 Prof that got to see it happening before he retired.
They played us, they won, and I am afraid to say it but I think it is over...
