The New Minority?

Strange things are happening in America. I'm wondering if it's because people that pull their weight in society have become the voting minority?

Discuss.

I was working in the city of Detroit last election day (2008). Every place that you could vote at had no less then 200-300 people wrapped around the block, at each location. Now was this because people are serious about voting or

Sure, and it's only going to get worse. Responsible people who work for a living plan their families and only have so many children because of costs. When you are on government assistance and do not pay for things like child birth, food for your kids, and health care for your kids you have more kids and they become voters who vote for more social programs. Hell, an extra kid is an extra paycheck on government assistance. At that point, why not have 5 kids? My wife and I can probably only afford two kids. We just can't afford more.

And a generation ago my parents could afford to have 4 kids. A generation before that my grandparent had 9 kids.

Our society is starting to fail because of the burden,

Every one that believes them selves to be responsible, needs to completely change their mind set to figure out how to feed them selves as the down fall occurs.

Get ready, boys and girls, in the entire history of human civilization, this has not happened in an easy manner, it has always been ugly, and this occurance will too be ugly.

The SNAP/Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, just announced that it is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, directs us to "Please Do Not Feed The Animals." This is because the animals may grow dependent on handouts and not learn to take care of themselves. Thus endith today's lesson.
