30 Days of Abraham Lincoln – Day 13

No country can sustain, in idleness, more than a small per centage of its numbers. The great majority must labor at something productive. — 1859

My Take – 51% of Americans don’t pay taxes.  Over 100 million of us are on some form of government assistance or another.  Entire sections of the economy are on life support through government funding.  We shouldn’t have gotten to this point in the first place, and there is no way we can sustain it for much longer.  We’re already at the point where the government is having to buy its own bonds to fund these things, but how long can the snake eat its own tail?

We have to come to grips with this soon, or no amount of last-minute belt tightening and economic hardship will be enough.
