Thought of the day....

It is very sad that the nation founded on individualism and limited government has more people than ever suckling at the federal subsidy teat. President Barack Obama has proposed a wide range of new subsidies in energy, health care, and other areas. If enacted, they would take America further away from the individual reliance, voluntary charity, and entrepreneurialism that made it so prosperous in the first place.

Americans need to wake up and fight back before the addictive drug of subsidies puts individualism in a permanent coma. People should start using new Internet tools, such as www.usaspending.gov, to research recipients of all these subsidies and complain to Congress about the abuse of their tax dollars.5 There is no time to lose for taxpayers to make their voices heard in Washington because the spending increases envisioned by President Obama are truly frightening.
From this Cato piece.

Americans have become lazy and dependent upon the dead hand of government. Being born on a certain piece of soil should never guarantee a certain level of economic consumption but it appears as if Americans now want this, whether it be healthcare or retirement income or whatever. Good luck to them. If this is now the United States, then I am not an American. The United States is now a dead country and I will have no part of it.
