with 35% of the country on some form of means tested cash payments and another 15% getting medicare or social security, i would argue that democracy no longer works.

read a comment after obama’s last election: said; “it is now clear the american people have decided to run the current system until it breaks”
i believe that. when the dollar tanks and we lose world reserve currency status, the house of cards comes down. until then; Party On!!
