This will probably rile some feathers, but I believe liberalisim is going to take down the US, just like the Roman Empire. Good old days of an honest $ for an honest days work seems to be disappearing.
Too many people want something for nothing. Welfare is a way of life for many people. 48% or so of citizens don’t pay any taxes at all. I don’t know what the percent of citizens is that are on the government dole, but it is a lot. Number of government employees has exploded in the last few decades. Their salaries and benefits are way above private industry.
Too many people have the philosophy that “it is my right”. Heck, they are even talking now of free college for everyone, like basically in Europe. But like all politicians, they tend to lie or don’t tell you the truth. In Europe for example, in Austria and Germany, the government decides who is going to college and who isn’t . You take a test in primary grades, if you pass you are directed towards college, if you don’t,you are going to a trade school, no choice !!!!
Some people say they make more money on unemployment than they do working, so why work. We have migrant workers working the farms in California and other places as US workers won’t do the work for the wage. If the wages were doubled and the cost of vegetable went up drastically, everyone would complain about that, so the list goes on and on. Like now legalizing marijuana, which will give us a bunch of dopehead workers and lead to more accidents. It is already proven that those dopeheads on marijuana have a decreased IQ.
Heaven help our society.
