America is accelerating downhill from is position of prominence in the world, India and China are both on the ascent, but still our politicians are whoring themselves to the power of the masses for a few extra votes.  The glory of democracy is that everyman has a vote, the harsh reality is that most who do vote are selfish jackasses who will gladly sell long term economic growth for a buck today.

As WSJ points out, 60% of the tax bill comes from a mere 5% of the voting public.  40% of the voting public pays no taxes at all (or will stop when Obama takes office come January) .   With these numbers it stands to reason that politicians stand to gain the most by offering to reward the lest productive members of our society.

Is it any surprise that BO is so popular?  He is essentially promising cash handouts to the mob…er majority.  This during a time when our government has taken leave of its economic sense and is faced with the greatest deficit ever.  I would suggest writing to your congressmen but hey, odds are you are in the tax paying minority and are not on the top of their appeasement list.
