The Coming Conflict Between Those Who Produce And Those Who Take
Febuary 25, 2012
The conflict is coming to America, as a result of too much taxation and too much giveaways. Pat Buchanan explains:
The family, cinder block of society, is disintegrating, and along with it, society itself. Writes [Robert] Rector, "The welfare system is more like a 'safety bog' than a safety net."
Heritage scholars William Beach and Patrick Tyrrell put Rector's numbers in perspective:
"Today ... 67.3 million Americans from college students to retirees to welfare beneficiaries depend on the federal government for housing, food, income, student aid or other assistance. ... The United States reached another milestone in 2010. For the first time in history, half the population pays no federal income taxes."
The 19th century statesman John C. Calhoun warned against allowing government to divide us into "tax-payers and tax-consumers." This, he said, "would give rise to two parties and to violent conflicts and struggles between them, to obtain the control of the government."
We are there, Mr. Calhoun, we are there
History shows us that the parasites always win these conflicts.
until they run out of other people’s money.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
How's that going?
Are the Somalians starting to assimmilate?
The Billy Goats Gruff.
Yup. Our American culture is circling the drain. It's total demise won't be affected by any election.
The Solmalians are primarily in the Portland and Lewiston-Auburn area and I don’t follow the news there.
I am not sure about more people on welfare than taxpayers, but I can tell you we have a Tea Party governor and both branches of the state legislature held by Republicans. The first time since 1962. The governor and most of the Republican legislators are pro-business. The governor is promoting education reform and cracking down on welfare and workman compensation abuse.
We've made progress to.
We have our first Republican congress since the Civil War.
[History shows us that the parasites always win these conflicts.]
I’ve been trying to figure a way out around this. I have a mini-industry of books I’ve written on these subjects “Surviving Civil War II”, “Going Galt”, “Biflationary Depression”. In each one I have a chapter on the parallels with Roman history, both in their fall into civil wars over slavery and their debasement of the money. The parasites win, but their march to destruction is consistent. We are in the ascendency of the crony elite stage.
Since we pretty much know what is going to happen, we ought to cut to the chase and short circuit some of it.
The Makers and the Takers
I think there was a book about that with that title
Mainly because the takers will crawl back into their shells and wait for the environment to change again.
The way around it is for the makers to go galt. Hide in plain site. Just stop being productive until the “crisis” has passed.
Let it collapse around the ears of the entitlement zombies.
Then someday they can come out and help rebuild.
Linky no worky.
Today it’s about 50/50, Takers vs. Makers.
It’s not too late yet, but it’s close.
Four more years of Obama and it will be at leat 60/40 in favor of the Takers.
Then it will be all over.
Yep - and our governor is everything people thought Chris Christie was - but isn’t.
We have the real deal.
We are fortunate.
He dropped a ‘r’
You do have a winner there.
Every state will get one like him eventually.
