Yesterday I saw a bumper sticker that read: Honk if I am paying your mortgage. To me, it would be kinda wierd to actually believe that someone else was going to pay your bills. Where do these types of thoughts begin? Who are the people who truly believe that someone else should pay for them?
Work is hard. That is a universal truth. Another UT is that work sucks. No doubt about that. Maybe some guys momma told him that he did not have to work or that he was too smart to work. Or, maybe some gals daddy told her that she was a princess and that she would never have to worry about making any money.
OK. Lets pretend that someone else is going to pay for all of us. I have seen welfare, food stamps, section 8 housing, and govt run medicine. Not very pretty. Shit. Just seeing any of those should be enough to scare a normal person into working their ass off for the rest of their lives. Who the hell wants to live like that?
So how long can we all hold out? Really. The line is going to get longer and longer over the years. Get free money or pay the money. Which one do you prefer? At some point there will be way more people in the get free money line. At that point, who is going to pay? Our govt can only print funny money for so long. I am sure that there are those who truly believe that the govt has its own money, but all of us smart folk know better.
So my question still stands. How long do we have? A little calculus is needed here. When printing more money is detrimental to our country to the point where even the dumb big govt types realize it, and when there are more in the get money line than the give money line can afford, what do we do? How do we end up?
The answer is really obvious and very scary. Which side are you on? Right or wrong?
