Great Britain is burning.
Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, France and Ireland are economic basket cases. All are quasi-socialist nanny states whose fiscal policies are Ponzi schemes, the con job for which Bernard Madoff was sent to jail.
This is the economic model to which Obama and the Democrats aspire. Their thinking is simple and cynical: Get enough people working for and dependant on the government and inevitably they will vote for the party upon whom their livelihoods depend.
Entitlements are nothing less than a fiscal narcotic. Once started, the body yearns for a fix and will do most anything to keep the supply coming.
Make no mistake about it, the Democrats are building a plantation whose purpose is to harness a majority of Americans to a one-party government.
A goverment that replaces freedom with the equality of slaves.
