Who Pays for Free?

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.


That really speaks volumes to our unsustainable socialist entitlement system that is becoming more of a weakness than the strength it was originally intended to be. Welfare, social security, and government pensions are only part of the root problem, that the US now owes more than it's economy generates in just one year. 

Yeah, there's something wrong, but electing more of the same sort of politicians that keep supporting the programs that led us here will only push us over the precipice. 

Keynesian economics have never worked well over the long term, evident by the disproportionate balance between government spending and our economy in the US today. This is why on this subject Libertarians and Austrian economists have always been correct, giving us sustainable methods for free markets and individual freedom over government. 

Or we could just keep doing what we are doing and close our eyes when we take that dive to the bottom.
