    The right (moral, ethical) percentage of government dependents is 0%.

    Government dependence has been correctly called a "degraded state" by the anti-anxiety guy whose name escapes me.....

    So government should help only the wealthy and corporation.
    Happen that I remember the almost $900 billions bailout to the banks, wall street and blood sucker.
    It's crystal clear Hypocrisy is an issue.

    Considering the money that was used to "help" the banks is only contributed by the wealthy, I would contend you might want to look at limiting government to reduce its influence on the market and people's lives.

    YES! I have long complained about the ridiculousness of those who put in nothing getting all the benefit, while those who put in everything get nothing but the basics (roads, military protection, etc.)

    The government shouldn't be doing that either. Most people need to re-read the constitution and find out what the government is really permitted to do. That which is not specifically permitted is forbidden by the 10th Amendment.



    There is no hypocrisy in not giving government money to anyone. The government's sole Constitutional responsibilities are to protect people from enemies foreign and domestic, and to create the basics needed for trade: money, roads, and the postal service. Funny, that wouldn't even need an income tax........



    How far we have fallen.

    People is people cheat the system and there is no penalty for it. Plus the Government is wasting to much handing out freebies to illegal immigrants.

    And the President has done nothing that will help. I am not sure that he even wants to help as he has allowed things that are only going to make things worse.

    The parasites are bleeding America and Americans dry, and the entitlement recipients suck far less than do the public employees, Democrat politicians, and their crony vendors.

    Doesn't seem that way, only 25% of the populous support the burden of government.

    It's a way of living, passed on from generation to generation, and then you have the illegal aliens popping out babies as fast as they can to get food stamps and any other welfare they can find. There are people that need help from time to time but there is too much dependency.

    A. Armegeddon!

    I know. I just returned from Indonesia with $2,300,000 Rupiah in my pocket. Only place to redeem it is at the Intl. airport in Seattle. Banks won't touch it.
