Update....this stunning article over at the Independent Thinkers Lounge goes to the heart of what I was trying to convey.
The U.S. Government wants to do everything for you. Job, food, healthcare, home, car.....they will provide it all for you. All you have to do is either work 8 months out of the year to pay for it, or perhaps do nothing....the government will live your life for you. No risk of unemployment...no danger...uncle scam will take care of it all. As long as you keep voting them in.
Living life requires experiencing a little chaos...when people stop wanting to live life to the fullest...they DIE. Wait for the government to save your ass you will end up dead. Grab life...live it yourself. Waiting around causes atrophy...weakness...and in nature....the weak are culled from the herd. Humans are no different.
Katrina is my favorite example of people waiting for the government to save their butts.....the results are obvious. Who wants to be a rotting corpse?
