The End Is Near! Maybe…

While Fact tends to be stranger than Fiction, as a young lad my parents introduced me to the  “concept” of voting.  Yet even then something struck me being a bit “off” as the masses could vote themselves entitlements!    So those who didn’t want contribute simply needed to be the majority and if the “majority” aligned, they could in turn vote themselves wealth!   Well the other day, this happen to come across my e-mail and I have never seen it put better so it has earned a home here as not only is it a reality.  It is in fact become a vial reality because of the combined anthropological & technical age we now live in:

The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff. And, the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop. And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting! Now… the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist. So… the people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place. We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff. [Note: the majority of American households today pay no Federal Income tax] Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason? The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 236 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff.  If you don’t believe this can happen look at Greece and the election that just took place in France .  Now France is a Socialist Country with a 75% tax rate on those that PAY for free stuff .  So the question is why work when all you have to do is vote?  See told yea fact is stranger than fiction…
