Did you know that 47% of American households pay no taxes? That's right. Almost half don't pay anything toward the incredible benefits we receive as citizens.
In other words, the people getting free stuff are close to outnumbering the people paying the bills.
And now, one out of every three Americans is dependent on government subsidies. 1 out of 3.
Some politicians don't like that one bit. They love it!
They like to use your money to bribe people on the government dole (and payroll) to vote for them.
In fact, a recent New York Times article by Thomas Edsall, The Future of the Obama Coalition," revealed the Democrats' 2012 election strategy will "explicitly abandon the white working class."
Instead, says Edsall, Democrats will build their coalition with "professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists." (These voters have already been indoctrinated via their liberal college "education.")
According to Edsall, Democrats are pursuing "a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic."
Now why would Democrats only go after "lower-income" minorities? Are they discriminating against middle-income and upper-income minorities? Probably not. They just can't can't use your money to buy their votes.
Some people think this means the Democrats are compassionate. Wrong again. Democratic politicians' charitable contributions are much lower than Republicans'. They only like being generous when they can buy power and votes with taxpayer dollars.
They got away with abusing the system for awhile, but the U.S. has reached a tipping point. The financial system is on the verge of being overwhelmed beyond repair. To make matters even more volatile, Obama and his colleagues continually use the rhetoric of class warfare to fan the flames of division and discontent.
Now it's urgent to put Constitutional principles and patriotism ahead of politics. We can only survive as a free society if we are self reliant as individuals. Government handouts come with strings attached. As the economy weakens it will get worse. The strings will become chains.
We are at the beginning of a long, arduous journey. The payment for many years of massive waste and unaccountable spending is coming due.
As Patriotic Moms we can play an important and powerful part in the preservation of freedom if we help our children learn to love America and the Constitution, and teach them how to work, to be frugal, to be content with simple pleasures, and to become self-sufficient.
“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.” ~Alexis de Tocqueville
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.” ~Alexis de Tocqueville
