Nowadays, the Takers are winning. See this and this. But what will the Takers do, especially elite Takers like Obama and Pelosi, when none of us Makers are left, or [cough] John Gault [cough] we just quit making wealth for them? Tigerhawk got it right:
"Fixing this will be the political work of the next generation".After the Terror War ( priority number one - ed.) this should be our main focus. And hopefully we'll start the fix in the fall of 2010.
UPDATE: Maggie's Farm links to this American Thinker article, which argues this is all the application of the 'Cloward-Piven Strategy'. I'm not one to buy into paranoia and shady conspiracies, but after reading a bit of the 'Strategy' itself I think the Thinker article has a point, tactically. Besides, Lefties love working from a playbook or a manifesto or some such. Be sure to read them all.
