I saw an article today in “The Examiner” out of Washington D.C. titled:
Feds: Too few Americans ‘turn to government for assistance’
The article in its entirety is below:
More Americans rely on their families for assistance than the government, so federal officials have undertaken an effort to help people to apply for federal assistance.
“Given that only 15 percent of you turn to government assistance in tough times, we want to make sure you know about benefits that could help you,” USA.gov announced today. The ”government made easy’ website has created a “help for difficult financial times” page for people to learn more about the programs.
The government got that statistic from a poll asking Americans what helps them the most during tough times. Here are the results:
- Savings 44%
- Family 21%
- Credit cards/loans 20%
- Government assistance 15%
“Government assistance comes in different forms—from unemployment checks and food assistance to credit counseling and medical treatment,” USA.gov reminded readers.
This leg of the financial assistance push has ended. “Although our campaign to highlight Help for Difficult Financial Times has ended, we know that your struggles may continue,” said USA.gov today. “We will keep updating the tools and information we provide to help you get back on your feet.”
This is what this country has become; a welfare society, with the government begging its citizens to steal from their neighbors in any time of need. But even this government attempt at more extortion is misleading.
By my methods of calculation, my belief is that most all Americans are on the dole, and therefore already dependent on government. The figures sited above are only speaking of temporary hardship situations, not the everyday subsidization of the population, such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Prescription Drugs, Unemployment checks, CRP payments, disaster relief, workers comp, bailouts, student loans, etc., etc., etc.
America is a warfare/welfare society. It is a dependent society, and it is a society that is almost completely apathetic! What the government is attempting to do here, is to increase that already saturated dependency.
A dependent society is a mindless society. It is a controlled society. It is a society based upon slavery. It is a society that has not the ability to sustain itself on its own. It is a dead society.
That is the type of society that the government seeks, for when these attitudes are present, the people are helpless and weak. The people become only cogs in a wheel, functioning only in order to sustain the state. That is why the state advertises openly to be the provider of all things at all times to all citizens. It is the state’s path to totalitarian rule, and the sheep in this country are obviously easy to convince. Their worthless votes in November will assure the government’s intended outcome!
