Our leaders are incompetent. Our citizens are incompetent. We have a growing number of the population dependent on government redistribution for their livelihood. All of the other arguments are just noise.

The United States was built on self-reliance. It’s not easy. It’s not supposed to be. Life is not fair. Some have taken advantage of this great system (the best that has ever been created to give the masses the opportunity to take care of their own business), and they are better prepared to provide for their children. They shouldn’t be penalized and demonized because they have worked hard to do this.

It’s time to step up and work our way out of this fiscal mess. It starts on an individual level. Start taking care of yourself and your own kids. Quit relying on the endless excuses we hear from the phony politicians and their intellectual cronies for your dependent status.
