“In total, the Census Bureau estimated, 151,014,000 Americans out of a population then estimated to be 306,804,000 received benefits from one or more government programs during the last three months of 2011. Those 151,014,000 beneficiaries equaled 49.2 percent of the population.”
That is what you call the “tipping point” where more of the people are receiving benefits than are not. Once a people realize they can vote themselves benefits, don’t expect anything to get better.
Zimbabwe here we come!
Well probably not Zimbabwe. Our fate will probably be a slow and lethargic collapse, all concealed behind a robust policy of foreign intervention. We still have a lot of bombs and stuff we can drop on people’s heads. That can be very motivational while distracting the sheeple from what a sorry mess the country is becoming. But all the same we will slide into an irreversible brain drain as the rest of the country follows the lead of Detroit and California.
What are you going to do?
