Considering around 50% of the population is sucking on the the public teat in some form or another, and not paying income tax, what do you thing would happen if the money just ended? No more giveaways. All federal employees that manage these money pits laid off and an immediate 30% reduction in all Federal taxes.
I think it would be ugly for awhile; mostly in the inner cities, but eventually, the balance would return. Those that don't produce would starve. Those that do would be more charitable, since they have more money and the money grubbing politicians would have substantially less money to steal. Otherwise, the economy would become robust, the Federal Government would be weaned to the level the founders envisioned and many no-ass thieving slugs would get what they deserve.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
