End Entitlements…Entanglements

Posted on: February 27, 2012

Recently I heard a statistic suggesting more people are now receiving government entitlements (a regular check from the government) of some type or another in The United States than are paying into the system of entitlements. Of course such a circumstance is economically untenable, owing to our substantial national debt, amongst other things.

The problem with the current system of entitlements, though, is that entire generations of families have been raised on such funds originating at the local, state, and federal levels and such disbursements of money are a constant insult to those families who have struggled to raise their children with no such aid yet have paid into such systems seemingly in perpetuity.

The systems of entitlements are growing, too, entangling the economy through the activity of lobbyists and regulation, entrenching themselves in bureaucracy.

Furthermore, the influx of government money into social and medical programs and other support systems creates an artificial demand and drives to costs of medical services up for regular consumers.

It is one thing to be in need. It is entirely another to use such systems as a means of employment and population generation after generation after generation while your neighbor becomes enslaved by the system of taxation needed to perpetuate the entitlements.

It is time to end the current system of entitlements in The United States. Any politician that does not address the issue directly and promptly from this point on shall not receive the vote.

exceedingly difficult to accomplish, the maddening aspect is that even if someone knows full well that their action or lack thereof will affect future people very badly, they simply don’t care, they will be passed away by then and had a better life for it.

Rarely is anything truly worthwhile easily accomplished.
