Food Stamp Nation
Almost 46 million people in America are on food stamps, that's roughly 15 percent of the population. The cost of this program (in 2010) was $68 billion, more than a third of the amount the U.S. government received in corporate income tax last year. Taken from this article. A further 3 million people are in jail. $14 trillion in public debt, and from the looks of it no one wants to pay tax. Gee, where is this heading to? If the economy doesn't grow tremendously, people will become more disillusioned and will protest, the government will clamp down on dissent, resulting in a police state with fewer rights for its people.
