America is a divided nation. We are divided politically and racially. We have become a nation of producers and non-producers. When there are more people in the wagon than pulling the wagon, it becomes unsustainable.


Consider the following scenario which happens every day in America:


For a guy and his girlfriend with two kids, all you have to do is follow these proven steps:


* Don’t marry her!


* Always use your mom’s address to get your mail.


* The guy buys a house.


* The guy rents out house to his girlfriend with his two kids.


* Section 8 will pay $900 a month for a three-bedroom home.


* Girlfriend signs up for Obamacare, so guy doesn’t have to pay for family insurance.


* Girlfriend gets to go to college for free for being a single mother.


* Girlfriend gets $600 a month for food stamps.


* Girlfriend gets a free cell phone.


* Girlfriend gets free utilities.


* Guy moves into home, but continues to use mom’s address for his mail.


* Girlfriend claims one kid and guy claims the other kid on their tax forms. Now both get to claim head of household at $1,800 credit.


* Girlfriend gets $1,800 a month disability for having a “bad back” and never has to work again.


This plan is perfectly legal and is being executed now by millions of people!


A married couple with a stay-at-home mom yields $0.


An unmarried couple with a stay-at-home mom nets $21,600 disability, plus $10,800 free housing, plus $6,000 free Obamacare, plus $6,000 free food, plus $4,800 free utilities, plus $6,000 Pell Grant money to spend, plus $12,000 a year in college tuition free from Pell Grant, plus an $8,800 tax benefit for being a single mother, equaling $75,000 a year in benefits!


Any idea why our country is over $20 trillion in debt?


This is the result of the Great Society launched by Democratic President Lyndon Johnson and expanded over the past 50-plus years by the liberal Democratic Party. It has been a monumental failure for those it intended to help but a huge success for the liberal elite creating a voting bloc that kept them in power for a majority of this time.


Is this the America we want?
