America is 'ineptocracy,' not 'democracy'
Editor, the Advocate:
If you look up the word "ineptocracy," this is the definition you will find: A system of government in which the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and in which the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
In my opinion, President Obama was elected the first time because he promised he would take care of everything. To the college student who wants very much to believe in Utopia, he was the new savior. To the welfare recipients, he would pay for everything. I saw an interview in which this woman was so ecstatic, she was almost in tears. The reporter asked her what she thought of the new president. She replied he was going to pay for everything; they had nothing to worry about. The reporter asked where the money was coming from. She didn't know, but President Obama was going to take care of them.
He was re-elected by these same welfare recipients, the blind, straight-party voters; plus, this time, the illegal forgiveness played a large part. Everyone wants something for nothing.
I deeply resent - as do most retirees - being called a "benefit recipient." We all worked for upwards of 40 years, paid our dues, thinking the money would be there when we became too old to work. Oh, no! The great welfare society ran out of money, so they gave Social Security and Medicare IOUs and bought more votes.
INEPTOCRACY! We are headed for a big fall.
