A Nation Of Spoiled Brats

You will rarely hear me speak negatively about this country. It is still the greatest nation on this planet. However, we are not as great as we were 70 years ago.

During the Great Depression and before, Americans were honest, hardworking, self-sufficient, and quick to lend a helping hand to someone in need. They didn't depend on the government to bail them out every time things didn't go as planned.

Contrast that with Americans today. We are dishonest, lazy, suckling babies who expect someone else to help us when we are in need due to our own lack of self control. The blame lies squarely in the hands of liberals who have created this class of dependents that expect the government to take care of their every need.

Current example: People who didn't plan ahead, who didn't exercise self control and suddenly find they can't pay their house mortgage. Solution - let the government reward them for their stupidity by forcing renegotiation of their mortgage contracts. Guess who doesn't get anything from the government? The people who planned ahead or are making extra effort to make their house payments. Is this a screwed up government or what?

I would not wish another depression upon this country but I do see how it would be beneficial. We are a nation of spoiled brats who need a very hard lesson in self-sufficiency and self-control.
