Two points about your post.1 out of every 2 Americans is living off the government tit ,
America as we knew it is gone forever
one viable solution would be to allow states and cities to succeed ,..
that way ,....we can let the big liberal,.. pro welfare,..pro union,... progressive cities and states spiral off on their own ,..
then we can just put big thick walls and a moat up around them ,...
they love their over paid public employees ,welfare recipients ,labor unions and the criminals and the drug culture ,..
they can have it ---
just dont expect the rest of us to support the craziness any more
First, that 50% living off the Government includes almost 25% of them on Social Security over 65 years old. So are you like Paul Ryan and want to do away with Medicare and now SS?
Second, I doubt you get enough votes in any state to succeed from the Union when all those on Medicare find out that it will not pay medical bills for a person living in a foreign country or to a non citizen.
Let me throw in a third: Just because a person does not pay Federal income tax does NOT mean they are living off the Government. Most people that get ALL the Federal payroll tax money back at year end have worked a full time job all year. They are called the working poor. The people Reagan's Trickle Down plan trickles down on.
