- Not all of us received government handouts to pursue higher education. Many of us worked our way through college.
- We were productive and did not need unions to extort firms into bankruptcy by paying above-market wages.
- Not everyone who is concerned with deficit spending is a Republican. Many of us are Independents who are self-reliant taxpayers concerned about the intergenerational theft of $16 trillion our children and grandchildren are expected to pay.
Our demise and spending problems were predicted long ago: “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.” -- Alexis de Tocqueville, 1831.
