Re: What's the Plan?
jtek: Thank you for your post on this difficult subject. You and others are like Dagny Taggart in Atlas Shrugged, trying to save the union. I think, however, that I am finally resigned to the fact that there are more takers (and their guilt ridden liberal codependents) in America than there are makers. So we are already in the death spiral as a culture.
But what I don't know is what is the leaders of the takers' plan? They must have a plan, because even they must know that they can't afford Social Security and Medicare for the baby boomers and that sometime they will run out of other people's money and China's credit. And big business and establishment Republicans are in on the plan too. Is there a plan? Or is it as simple and as short sighted as "get what you can get now because we are going down in flames like Greece," and although the body politic is still twitching, the central nervous system is dead...
Edit: jtek: I just realized you are in San Antonio. Best of luck with secession.
