Food stamps or should we say “ObamaStamps”, are continuing to rise at an alarming rate. Reuters just released an article claiming that 15% of Americans are now on food stamps. This translates to about 46 million Americans, which is up over 12% from last year. Food Stamps have increased about 74% since the financial crisis that began in 2007.
Food stamps are becoming the new normal for the US as the number of Americans without jobs remains too high and food prices continue to rise across the country. This formula will continue to increase the usage of food stamps. This has been the change that Obama has promised and he has delivered on that promise. This is exactly the outcome he was hoping for, and that’s why he can take vacations while Americans continue to suffer from his policies. Obama wants America to become a Socialist country. He wants Americans to live in slavery to the government so that he can have his so called “eutopian” society. The reality is that this type of society only creates slavery. This is ObamaCare.
The food stamp entitlement program is killing the economy because more and more Americans would rather get free ObamaStamps than work. That free money comes from the taxpayers which is reducing the amount of spending power consumers have in the US. Also as a result of Americans having less money to spend, they also realize that Obama will have to raise taxes to maintain the spending and entitlement programs that he loves so much. This is causing Americans to slow down their spending because they are unsure about tomorrow. Businesses are also unsure about the future and can’t make investment decisions because of uncertainty knowing that Obama’s circus show isn’t sustainable.
This depressing reality is becoming more and more true everyday. Many people are willing to gladly trade their freedom for slavery in what seems to be free money, goods, and services. This is the ”change” that Obama promised. It seems unthinkable as people around the world are dying for freedom as they live in slavery without the promised free money. The truth is that the free money, goods, and services will end soon because it is not sustainable, and Americans will eventually be enslaved to their government. Obama’s policies appear to be good and helpful to the people, but it results in slavery as the people become dependent and can’t provide for themselves. It shouldn’t be an issue that those who want reduction in entitlement spending are not caring and selfish. It is rather an issue of sustainability and freedom. For example parents raise their children to one day become independent and live on their own, but the government is doing the opposite. Obama is training the people to be dependent and apathetic.
This is all a matter of the ”takers” and the “makers”. Once the takers outnumber the makers this country will collapse without a revolution. The takers will always vote for more handouts because they have no choice. So the makers will need to make the choice of freedom or slavery before the decision is already made for them.
