Has the United States simply become two distinct factions

good friend (thank you Ronnie) pointed out to me yesterday as we were
discussing many topics, which of course included the state of California
and the country, that the United States has boiled down to simply two
distinct factions. It is no longer about Republicans, Democrats,
Conservatives, Liberals, the Green Party, the Communist Party, etc.
Quite simply the issues in our country center wholly around the "MAKERS"
and the "TAKERS".
The "MAKERS" need to support the "TAKERS"
(in their view) because the "MAKERS" make and keep too much. The
"TAKERS" need to take from the "MAKERS" because the "TAKERS" deserve it
from those who have more than them (in their view).
founding of this country made the opportunity possible for EVERYONE to
become a "MAKER" if they applied themselves. But the politicians over
the decades decided that they could not always get elected and grow
their "personal kingdoms" with a country full of "MAKERS". Such people
ultimately wouldn't need them so they created the ripe environment for
the "TAKERS" to grow their ranks and fuel the politician's lifelong
lifestyles and entrenchment to always support the "TAKERS" albeit in a
truly non-caring way.
But, we are at the tipping point. The
number of "TAKERS" in this country is closing in on and could very soon
exceed the "MAKERS" not only in terms of numbers but in the amount of
money transferred from one group to the other (in California the number
has already tipped with 51% of the population now relying on the support
of the government in some form or another). Once there becomes more
"TAKERS" than "MAKERS" what will then happen to the "TAKERS" and their
expectations when the money dries up? More over what will happen to our
Hmmm... Greece comes to mind. Or perhaps the "United
States of EurAsia" is in our not-to-distant future (tips to the terrific
band "Muse" for that perspective).
Have a good day!
