I fear the trend is irreversible. Now a majority of the population want "More" government in their lives. I fear we will have our "socialism" within the next few years and kill off what little ambition and innovation is left in the nation.
In a poll conducted a few days ago by NBC News / Wall Street Journal, a record 57% of Americans responded that they want MORE government in their lives, and that the government should be doing more to solve people’s problems.
That’s the highest percentage since they started asking this question in 1995.
Given how stupid the average joe blow Americian going by what I have read over the years on this forum, I am not supprised.
Someone in history said this would happen when they said that the oppresssed will come to love their approessors.
In fact, 57% is nearly double what people responded in the mid-90s.
Are you actually doing anything to help yourself? Or are you just whining on social media about how no one is giving you anything for free?
America was founded as a place where people take responsibility for themselves.
But this now seems to be an outdated, minority view.
The Land of the Free is truly becoming the Land of Getting Free Stuff.

No the argument is if x isn't paying income taxes Y has exactly zero right to be saying a damn word.
And look up the word partisanship because someone clearly isn't using it in its correct sense.
Asked and answered.
