I really don’t understand why people think it is such a good system… and I’m very worried that Obama is going to drag us further down the road than we already are.
Why is the welfare state so appealing? Is it because people feel they can get by with less effort? Are they enthralled with the idea of taking something from someone else? If you continue to remove the benefits of independant effort, eventually those rich people will decide that there is no benefit and they will put in less effort and either reduce the amount available to the ‘lower class’ or become one themselves so they can get something for next to nothing. When enough of this happens, the whole system will collapse.
