"So you think the Government should continue to rob social security to finance lower tax rates?"

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I think that the government will continue to spend everything and
more - until it and the country fails.

I think that there will never be a reduction in spending - even if
all profits and all income is absorbed into the state.

I think that the end-game produces a poorer life for everyone and
opportunity for only a few of the party elites.

I see Russia as the future for the world.
I see the farms of China as the future of agriculture.

I see the poor abandoned with no chance of improvement - led
into even greater mind-numbing poverty by higher energy costs,
higher medical costs, little to no services, rationed food,
rationed medicines, rolling blackouts - when there is power
of any kind. And I see the ruling class telling them it is always
someone else's fault - some enemy - someone to blame - someone to divide and conquer.

Worse thing of all, I see this coming from folks who
tell themselves that every step is for the best and that
they are really helping the poor - all the while the
only ones who are helped are the party elites.
