One of our founding fathers, Ben Franklin, said that stats like these would “herald the end of the republic.”
There was a serious concern for those who would vote for free stuff. It would seem we have reached and even exceeded that point in America. The most terrifying thing about these government programs is that once you come to depend on them you have no choice but to get desperate once they are gone.
If even half of these people lost benefits and were put on the street there would be riots like nothing you have ever seen. We are at a tipping point. Get prepared today.
How Long Will the Trillions Last?
It takes a lot of money to keep people on the dole. When you have people on the government dole, well, you have votes that can be bought and sold. How on earth can you pull a paycheck from the government and not be worried about the candidates in the next election?
Can we dump a ton of money into the ranks of people who aren’t productive forever? Well, it didn’t work out in Rome but we can wait and see how it plays out this time. It sounds like more spiraling debt!
The solution to the woes of the 21st century is integrity! We are not going to find a better way out of this mess. If there is a way out.
It won’t be easy because people with integrity are always targeted. Just think about religious groups that make strong stands on their beliefs. There is no room for that kind of “madness” in our tolerant society of 2019!
Rubber to the road, you have to be ready to make the hard decisions. Forge your own path. Live honestly and don’t take the alluring money from the government. Once you check-in you cannot check out!
