Guess they'll have to close down the meth labs and actually find jobs and pay some local taxes for a change.

Take all you can get. It the only way to break the system. Once the feds go broke they will have to wake up. I say break the system non-violently, sit still. Don't purchase, don't work, don't do squat but collect an unemployment check until the system crashes.Put all your kids on welfare and divorce your wives , throw them on section 8 and every benifit availible to single mommys. Want to break this welfare system and fix illegal immigration, break the tax base thats feeding it.

If people keep staying underemployed and unemployed and gas and food keep going up you'll get your wish sooner than you think.
