The Enemy Which Will Kill The United States Has Been Identified!

The story begs for the description by that cartoon character Pogo, "We has met the enemy, and he is US!"

The read is a bit lengthy, but certainly worth your time over at Armed and Dangerous!

Whether one buys the writer's dire prediction, or his alternative, we are in trouble plenty. As a new retiree, I am particularly distressed. We are reaching that point where the public has learned it can demand a feeding trough of programs, and get them from a political class which knows no limit to spending.

It scares me even more that we have a man running for President who wishes to expand the take from those very folks who make our economy work....and, to give to those who do nothing to make the economy work. Socialism, my matter what label you would prefer to use. Socialism has failed in every location where it has been tried. Yet the call of something-for-nothing still is alluring to us, and the politicos know it. By the way "The One" who is advocating even more programs, is only a few points from being a winner.

Times are scary, my friends.
