    Why didn't any of this come up during the campaign.
    This list of 33 should have been scrolling every cable channel for months

    This is a fact that never came up during the election.
    How could they miss this?
    #2 Since Obama has been president, seven out of every eight jobs that have been "created" in the U.S. economy have been part-time jobs.

    Obama is a Marxist. That church he attended in Chicago when he was campaigning is based on Liberation Theology which is Marxism repackaged by Jesuits to resemble Christianity. Obama voted the farthest left of all the Senators. Obama's earliest big supporter was George Soros, a self-described communist.

    How often do communists foster a great economy?

    PUT ME IN CHARGE . . . Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

    In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good.."

    Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

    If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

    AND While you are on Gov't subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

    Would be awesome, even if it's a fantasy.

    And the reason is that politicians have figured out that to be elected, get power, and earn money for themselves, they don't have to produce any good ideas or help the country in any way... they just have to be willing to rob the Treasury and buy votes for themselves... a problem that even the ancient Greeks who invented democracy in the 6th century BC had to live with and confront all the time.

    Well, rest assured that there is a terminal point on this journey where it is no longer possible and the empire comes crashing down.
  10. That IS the end result... when the people "can't take it any longer".
