The herd just does not get the issues, does it? It just keeps moving aimlessly, like a pack of lemmings. Good, good keep doing that and vote yourself some more free goodies. The ones of us who actually work will get stuck with the bill again and again because as Mr. Heinlein said: “Bread and Circuses’ is the cancer of democracy, the fatal disease for which there is no cure. Democracy often works beautifully at first. But once a state extends the franchise to every warm body, be he producer or parasite, that day marks the beginning of the end of the state. For when the plebs discover that they can vote themselves bread and circuses without limit and that the productive members of the body politic cannot stop them, they will do so, until the state bleeds to death, or in its weakened condition the state succumbs to an invader—the barbarians enter Rome.”
I for one am not part of the herd nor will I ever be because I actually have a work ethic and believe that you should not depend on others for your livelihood. What a novel concept – work. Keep it in mind next time people when you are voting to screw the rest of us.
