Let’s face it. It’s hard to be the party of Santa Claus, giving away free stuff like health care, unemployment benefits that go on Aforever, welfare with no work rules, food stamps with no work requirement and on and on…..
The makers in North Dakota, the ones that pay for all those giveaways have a lot more pride in themselves. They would rather get up each morning looking to go to work, a job mind you, not a position. Pride in their worth ethic, pride in their employers and just pride in the real American way.
Democrats only see their base growing by increasing the dependency of people to get their “free stuff” from them. Grow the size of government and you get a bigger base of voters. Grow the size of people on the dole and you get faithful but lazy voters. Make amnesty an easy thing and again……well you see and know where this goes.
There have been good Democrats over the years. Smart, mindful and looking out for all people. Cecil Andrus, governor of Idaho, for two terms, was a shinning example of a personal responsibility type of Democrat. There are not many like him anymore. It’s easier to just promise the ‘takers’ in our country more free stuff provided by the ‘hard working makers’ of this country.
Take all of the earnings, all of it this year (100%) from those makers earning over 250k and it would not make even a small dent in our national debt. The deficit on the other hand needs to be addressed by Democrats and Republicans as each year the deficit increases the debt gets bigger and our grandchildren are stuck with it and most are just gettin their first “position”.
GOT BAKKEN? But how much longer is the real question?
