Here's a disturbing headline for you: Citizens Receiving Food Aid from Federal Gov't Now Outnumber Full-Time Private Sector Workers.
Lest you have forgotten or have not known, the public sector depends on money from the private sector. If there is no private sector, there are no taxpayers to fund the government (those already employed by the government giving back part of their earning is hardly a net plus for government). If you ever wonder how the United States got to trillion dollar deficits each year, look no further than horrifically increased spending with a shrinking private sector. It has to stop. We can choose to stop it ourselves and choose our pain, if you will. Or we can wait until a financial crisis occurs with the debt bubble blowing up in our faces and creating worthless dollars- at least if I understand it right. Vote responsibly: instead of politicians promising to spend for pet causes, choose politicians committed to reigning in spending and deficit.
