Re: The Wealth Gap and the Collapse of the U.S.
"The Despotism of Dependency" — we have arrived.
Government is not shrinking. Today’s government consumes 45% of the economy by its spending, plus another 13% of the economy via its un-funded regulatory mandates – – leaving less than half of the economy to the free-market private sector.
"45% of our economy today is dependent on government spending & control."
Slow, gradual government expansion over time is not recognized by the masses which gradually become dependant upon it. This leads to serfdom to the state. America is more a socialistic nation, and less a free-market economy, then ever before in its history, because our total economy has become significantly more government-dominated and dependent. Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves and weeping for the children of this once great land.
We are being extinguished and stupefied as a people, reduced to a flock of timid, subservient sheep of which the government is the shepherd.
