I'm one of those federal contractors they mention.
I could go private industry, but it just seems to be a safer bet to be attached to the juggernaut right now.

The Eurpoeans were able to explore various failed socialist policies because we paid for their security blanket for more than 60 years. We cannot afford to play European games and provide the security blanket for the entire Western world. Even without paying for defense, European socialists have seen nothing but failure and decline. When we try it, it will not only lead to our failure and decline. When our irresponsible policies force us to strip away the security blanket, the entire Western world as we know it will fall.
Or maybe not.. but I doubt we maintain the current trajectory for very long without devastating consequences.
Back out of it the way you got into it, one step at a time.
But social programs have always been a sort of Cloward-Piven ploy advanced by Communist parties -- even in the 30's, when French defense planners surveyed the Socialsts' annual budgets in dismay, as the Socialists shoveled the pork out to the voters basically, they thought, to starve the government of operating funds.
Britain did the same thing, 10 years later after Labour got back in. Their Socialists in the 20's and 30's were inept politically, and were thoroughly foxed by Stanley Baldwin and others, but they caught up with a vengeance in the 40's and 50's as they gobbled up the "peace dividend" and sent the Royal Navy to the breakers.
