You know what this country needs?
More folks depending on the government.
No, really. That’s the conclusion of … wait for it … the government.
“Given that only 15 percent of you turn to government assistance in tough times, we want to make sure you know about benefits that could help you,” USA.gov announced today. The ”government made easy’ website has created a “help for difficult financial times” page for people to learn more about the programs.
Now, just maybe, what they’re saying is true. That is, 15% turn to government during “tough times.” So, what about the other 35%?
They were at the government teat all along.
Now you know why Obama’s approval rating will never get below 40%. You got at least 35% that believe in letting everybody else take care of them. Throw in in the fact that most of the news polls are weighted nearly +10 Democrats, plus the crazy statistic that over 95% of blacks like Obama despite the fact that black unemployment is way up under his term, and there’s no way that his poll numbers will drop very far.
And, if the government can get more sucking on its teat…
150 years ago, Democrats were using guns to keep people in physical chains. Today, they’re handing out your money to get people to voluntarily put on financial chains.
The tactics change. The objective doesn’t.
