In my opinion, we are already there. Take an inventory of all the people you know. How many work directly for the government, how many work for a company that relies on the government (contracts, grants, etc) for its income? How many don’t rely on the government at all? I have a conservative family, and have mostly conservative friends. I counted TWO out of TEN families in that group that do not rely on the government, and those two just retired.
