We hear much concern about the “fiscal cliff,” but there is another cliff that is far more dangerous and from which we may have already fallen.
Apparently the majority of voters thinks Uncle Sam is really Santa Claus and that every day is Christmas. When, inevitably, Santa runs out of other people’s money, there will be hell to pay. We will make the riots in Greece look like a friendly block party.
If President Barack Obama increases taxes during this recession, it would be like pouring gasoline on a fire and wondering why it won’t go out.
Alternatively, if Obama and his liberal cohorts continue to add to government hand-outs, the country will certainly go off the more dangerous cliff.
One wonders why mankind seems to always find a way to screw up a good thing.
