At The Tipping Point

2 Shares
87453678

America is about eight-tenths of a percentage point from reaching a tipping point from which recovery of the republic from socialistic forces will be impossible without violent revolution or catastrophic economic collapse.

According to data released by the Census Bureau, 49.2 percent of Americans are on the public dole, having received benefits from one or more government sources during the last three months of 2011.

A total of 151,014,000 Americans out of a population of 306,804,000 benefited from government redistribution schemes during the period. Of course, Obamacare, which will provide “subsidies” to everyone earning up to 400 percent of the poverty level, will tip the scales to well more than 50 percent.

Almost one-third of those receiving government benefits — 49.9 million — collected Social Security. That is the government’s huge Ponzi scheme that steals from the workers to give to retirees. For those who retired prior to 2000, it was a great deal. Workers who retired in 1960 paid on average $36,000 in Social Security taxes and received lifetime benefits of $259,000. Those who retired in 1980 paid an average of $192,000 in Social Security taxes and received $452,000 in benefits.

The average 2010 retiree had paid $558,000 in Social Security taxes but the expected lifetime outlay will be only $555,000. Projections for the 2030 retiree are for lifetime benefits of $699,000 on Social Security taxes of $796,000.

Keep in mind that retirees are not the only people dipping into the Social Security pool. It includes disabled workers and the spouses, children, widows and widowers of those who had a portion of their wages confiscated by the government.

Like all Ponzi schemes, Social Security will inevitably collapse.

And then there are the other redistributive government programs to consider. Among the 151 million receiving government largess at the end of 2011, 49 million got food stamps; 46.4 million were on Medicare, 23.2 million were on the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program; 20.2 million got Supplemental Security Income; 13.1 million who got veteran’s benefits and 364,000 who received railroad retirement benefits.

      Problem Being. OUR Military is not His. And it Also will NOT be on His side . But OURS.

      • Average_Joe56

        Problem Being. OUR Military is not here., they are strewn around the world where they will be trapped ( without a supply line) when the revolution begins.
        Obama does have his own private army to deal with the revolution… They were formerly known as “Blackwater Worldwide” (Hired MERCENARIES…remember those guys?)….and they work directly for Obama and the rest of the turds in DC….THAT is his PRIVATE army…. they will be a force to be reckoned with…..and they will have no reservations about shooting Americans.

    Really…..Medicare, veteran’s benefits. You lose credibility when lump retires and veterans in with those who just don’t want to work. You forgot to mention the the farm and corporate welfare benefits that are bankrupting us as quickly. Maybe if if the government stayed out of the farm welfare business all those people on food stamps could afford to buy food at the real market price without help. By the way, I didn’t miss the government when it shut down and hope the job is more complete the next time it shuts down!

      Dear Rb,

      So extraConstitutional actions by the government are OK by you as long as you benefit from them?

      Best wishes,

  • mark

    Right, all patriotic American should immediately refuse to accept their Social Security and Medicare payments, Veterans pensions, Veterans benefits, and any federal, state, or municipal government pensions or benefits. To continue to accept these payments just makes them parasites and leeches sucking on the public teat, traitors to our nation, living on the government dole like the lazy, useless bums that they are, while truly heroic Americans who work in private sector and refuse to dedicate their working lives to the U.S. military or any government service make the real contributions to our society: the people who work on Wall Street, big banking, or small businesses with their great opportunities to hide income and avoid taxes, or even those who run political internet scams. Those people are not those lazy, worthless teachers, military, firefighters, police officers, etc. who all get government pensions and government-paid benefits that we taxpayers have to contribute to. It is the people in the private sector who are the real heroes. They work solely for their own benefit, solely to enrich themselves in the free enterprise system. These are the true patriots – not the cowards and leeches who wear U.S. military uniforms or firefighter uniforms who race into infernos to save others’ lives. They are just worthless, piece-of-crap, government workers!

      That Social Security money is my money, Ive put so muck money in SS that at the rate they are giving it back to me Id have to live to be 120 to get it all back dollar for dollar, not counting any interest

      • mark

        Not according to Mr. Livingston. You are, in fact, a parasite sucking on the federal dole as are all our treasonous veterans. And as for those unemployed workers who paid into unemployment insurance all their lives? That is no excuse. They are just leeches, sir, like you. Better forget you evil, treacherous views, join the Tea Party, and end all treasonous federal pay-outs!

          Sorry mark but no employees do not pay unemployment taxes. Only employers pay the tax. Check your pay stub.

    • speedle24

      Mark, you feeling, compassionate, caring, giving, free spending (with everyone else’s money) liberal. You don’t seem to get it. When the money runs out because it’s not worth it to work for it anymore, the game is over. All your bulls–t doesn’t mean a thing. You and those that think like you are a relic from 1917.

      • mark

        And if you think that the government is going to outlaw all social security, Medicare, uemployment and federal, state, city and veteran pensions, you are living in a total dream world, sir. The money isn’t running out at all. What we have to do is vastly cut our interventionist, country-invading military, our huge (and unconstitutional) surveillance and internal security agencies, our massive corporate and business subsidies, our foreign aid and then we will then have plenty of funds for our own workers, veterans, and retirees – people, who you and Mr. Livingston have contempt for but people who can vote in massive numbers and therefore keep you cranks irrelevant as you already are and will be for centuries.

        • speedle24

          The point is that even if we “vastly cut our interventionist, country-invading military, our huge (and unconstitutional) surveillance and internal security agencies, our massive corporate and business subsidies, our foreign aid and then we will then have plenty of funds for our own workers, veterans, and retirees”, it is not the GOVERNMENT’S money to distribute. The only way the money can grow the economy is if it is in the hands of the public (and not taxed away).

        • wishinforbetterdaysahead

          Gee Mark now you sound like a true Tea Partier, I can see you only watch and read propaganda from the media, they have taught you well to hate your perceived enemy. The Tea Party as I understand it want exactly what you just stated. Less Government, wasteful spending and to follow our constitution to the letter. I am a women I don’t feel as if conservatives hate women, I know many loving men who are conservative, married and great fathers. We love our country and only want Government to stop wasting money we don’t have, so our children can have a brighter future, Stop hating others so much we are all citizens and most of us no matter our opinion want to leave this country in better shape for future generations by the way the Democrats all voted nay to give Blacks equal rights and started the kkk

        • ‘Barbara Messmer

          Speedle24 did not say the government is going to outlaw anything so to attack that position is silly. As to rather the money is running out or not is being debated pretty much worldwide, or at least by the IMF. As too the next statements about cutting the out of control spending government of Obama’s down back into Constitutional limits we are in total agreement. Neither speedle24 nor Mr. Livingston expressed any contempt for anyone. What they said is when the money isn’t there (when the population being supported is greater than the population doing the supporting) then the game is up.

  • Bill

    Great article, Bob

    You are on the money with your analogy. It is obvious to anyone with half a lick of sense that things are not right. The private sector, which finance’s everything, is being demonized and raped and pillaged. It is also running for cover and cutting back instead of expanding. So, the funds to pay for everything are drying up.

    The saddest part of all this is how ignorant the public is to what puts food on the table. They fall for any lie told them by their providers
    It is almost like I am talking fairy tales when I tell the youth about the good old days where our freedoms were guaranteed, jobs and opportunities were abundant and capitalism was thought of as a good thing

  • 57girl

    All we ever HAD to do to keep our Nation from spiraling out of economic control was to follow our Constitution and live by our founding father’s advice. Our biggest problem today is the fact that the Government, admittedly, is erasing our borders in favor of the NAU. They know exactly what they are doing. Once they come riding in on their white horse to save the day, flaunting their Ameros, it will be too late to salvage America’s original founding papers. We will have lost our borders and with them, what is left of our Constitution, including our right to bear arms.

    The American people had better get the wax out of their ears before it is too late. Indeed, we are losing our Nation’s Sovereign identity. And at this point, I suspect it will take a bloody Revolution to reclaim our American Heritage … if it is not too late, already.

  • Carl-Cathy Wisnesky

    One way to fix this would be to allow only those that pay Federal Income Tax ( pick an amount – for example $800 or more) in the previous year or years be allowed to vote in Federal elections. It could run something like this as an example: For Senators & Representatives, one can vote in the 2014 election if one paid in (and did not get refunded) an average of at least $XXX for the years 2012 & 2013. For 2016, one can vote for President, Senators, & Representatives if one paid in an average of at least $XXX for the years 2014 & 2015.
    With modern computing power & a reliable software company ( not the one that set up Obamacare ) this is not as hard to do as it seems. If the IRS says it is impossible to have last year’s info distributed to polling places before the primaries & November election, it can be kicked back a year: For 2014, federal taxes averaging $XXX must have been paid for 2011 & 2012, etc.
    Basically, only those with skin in the game should be allowed to vote.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Wow. So in your world a Buck Private in the Army who fights for his country, a first year teacher, a stay at home mom who volunteers a her church, a fireman for a small community who does odd jobs to make ends meet might ALL be excluded from participating in our government of the people by the people and for the people.
      I am sure that once the wealthy elect THEIR representatives that dollar cut off would keep going up so that the government would be of the rich people by the rich people and FOR the rich people.

      • Carl-Cathy Wisnesky

        We just quickly brought up a possible solution. It would have to be thought over, debated, & refined before becoming law. Our tax amount was an example & is arbitrary, not made in stone. For example, a non-working mom & voting age children would be allowed to vote as long as the FAMILY paid some income tax. The lowest new soldier or 1st year teacher has a pay requiring some income tax. Here’s an alternative – a flat tax income tax with no deductions would solve the problem you seem to have with our idea. Or a national sales tax instead of an income tax so everyone pays according to what they spend. There are several ways that “only those paying taxes” can vote can be accomplished.

        We guess that by your definition, anyone earning a salary & paying taxes must be “the awful rich.” Tell that to all of the working people in the country & see what kind of reception you get. And before you bring it up, yes, that means someone on unemployment compensation for a year or the little old lady or man that only has SS to live on because they did not save & plan for their retirement would not be able to vote in that election. No skin in the game = no vote.

        • Scott

          The point is – stop bitching and come up with solutions – yeah – it’ll probably take more than one

          • ‘Barbara Messmer

            Much better system would be that only Honorably Discharged veterans are allowed to hold elected office and to vote for those offices. At least that way every CinC would at least have served and maybe not be as eager to start illegal wars.

        What you mean its not now the government of the rich people, by the rich people and FOR the rich people now with the Senate controlled by all those millionaire Democrats? Did not Harry Reid say that their job was to support the government not the people, not the Constitution?

    • mark

      “Basically, only those with skin in the game should be allowed to vote.” No, you mean those with white skin should be allowed to vote – plus a few token rich, conservative blacks. Yes, property qualifications for voting are all the rage with the Tea Party lately. And once these are in place the reinstitution of slavery will not be too far behind. Think of how much you could increase corporate and small business profits if you could reimpose slavery on the poor? And it would be “for their own good” after all. But you better have a program of mass, armed violence to go along with this plan because you are going to have to kill tens of millions of Americans to carry this out as they will fight you to the death along with the entire U.S. military to maintain their right to vote. Under your plan the enlisted personnel of our armed forces will not have enough earned income to vote. This was often true in many states during the Early Republic. Oh yes, those glorious slavery days, I can sense how much you two miss them.

      • Carl-Cathy Wisnesky

        As usual, the only way a progressive liberal socialist can counter a point is to bring up race with the people presenting the opposing point of view must be racists.

        • mark

          Since around 40% of the poor in the United States are people of color, African Americans and Hispanics, of course, race would play a huge role in your scheme to take away people’s right to vote. Your plan would create a white race democracy in which 90% of whites could vote while only about 60% of blacks and Hispanics could. Also if for some reason this irrational plan was ever passed into law, as I mentioned you better create a giant, heavily armed vigilante army to take away people’s right to vote Poorer Americans will fight you house-to-house, door-to-door, trailer park-to-trailer park to keep their right to vote. Be prepared to kill millions as the Nazis did to crush your fellow Americans’ right to self-determination. I’m sure you would have no problem with this and are in fact looking forward to it. The Founding Slaveholders would have been proud of you however as they too felt that only white property holders should have the right to vote. And blacks human beings should be shot down like dogs if they ever sought their freedom.

            To use your own figures, if “40% of the poor in the United States are people of color”, then the other 60% of the poor must be . . . . .WHITE. Therefore, more white people would not be allowed to vote than people of color.

          • ‘Barbara Messmer

            Yep that must be what he was talking about–the WHITE Aristocats don’t want the (WHITE) crackers, (WHITE)red-necks and (WHITE)honkies to vote. Not so sure about all that fighting considering how poor voter turnout is for elections.

          • Scott

            Mark – Sounds like your the biggist racist of all – Always comes down to that doesn’t it. The onlt reason Obama’s in office is because he’s black. Had he been a white man – he wouldn’ve been re elected. PS – You also need to do your homework on Hitler. Nazi’s were socialists – which is a left -wing ideology. They believed in War, Racism, Social welfare and gun control – Sounds like a liberal to me. The only reason you can give that even inks of predjudice – were tired of treating people different because of thier skin color. Knowbody cares.

    • vicki

      Since so many people think that “having skin in the game” is not a good reason for vote lets propose a law covering just one key area. Taxes.

      Lets have a law (Amendment whatever) that simply requires only those who voted FOR the tax have to pay the tax. That solves a lot of issues including the complete elimination of the people who pay no tax (for whatever tax that number means).

      It does create one key issue though. To work the individual secret ballot (at least for tax) would no longer be.

      • ‘Barbara Messmer

        LOL which means only the politicians would have to pay the tax since they are the only ones who get to vote on them, other than at local levels voting for property tax increases, sales tax increases. As far as Federal taxes are concerned the public never gets to vote on them.

  • speedle24

    Probably the best strategy to turn this around, and this goes against the grain for most conservatives and libertarians, is to employ the same tactics that the Statist left wing used to get us where we are. This is really nasty but this is how these things are done in politics.
    We have to turn segments of the entitled class against other segments of the entitled class one by one. That is to say we appeal to those on social security by demonizing those on food stamps, telling them the only way to continue SS benefits is to get the food stamp program under control. Keep doing this with varied special interests until you have enough backing to get elected.
    Once elected we can start the process of “transforming” the country back into the constitutional free market economic powerhouse that it once was. The key thing to remember is that honesty in politics is a losing proposition.

    • mark

      Honesty among conservatives and libertarians is an especially losing proposition. In fact, it has never existed. At least you are “honest” about that. Lie to the people. That is what conservatives and many liberal/progressives have always done. The Tea Party promised to shut down the government and freeze the debt cieling. Yeah, we know how that all turned out. A complete joke. Like their movement.

        • Vis Fac

          Facts to a liberal are those that are pulled out of thin air and or provided by lame stream media to swathe their ineptness on all things rational. Liberal one dimensional idiot-ology dictates they make things up as they go so
          they can blame others for their failures and nothing is ever ODUMBO’s or the DUMBOCRITES fault.

          So whenever they have trouble defending and/or nothing to substantiate their positions they simply fall back on the FBABO (Federal Board for Assigning Blaming to Others) or citing lame stream media’s partial/fabricated truths and prevarications; then all their liberal inadequacies are soon considered ancient history becoming non issues and then quickly forgotten

          That Lincon quote of yours is a false one and has been debunked for years. It is generated on many right wing nut sites but Lincoln never said it not that that would ever matter to you.

            Mark,
            Lincoln also said “things may come to those who wait but only the things left by those who hustle”.
            Do you wait for your handouts or do you hustle?

            Mark is a pawn of the socialists that want to take over America.

            With socialism “Somebody is going to get something but it won’t be Mark or anyone else ”!!

            Mark doesn’t have the intellect or the character to take care of himself so he needs to rely on socialist handouts.

            If America’s economy crashes America’s military will be decimated when that happens the rest of the free world will cease to exist

            To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

            You don’t have to be a Marine to make a difference the only requirement is being truly patriotic and the willingness to back it up!!!

          Education is a propaganda machine, the press is a propaganda machine, entertainment is a propaganda machine, and left-wing politicians are propaganda machines. We don’t even NEED a Goebbels (Hitler’s Minister of propaganda for the Nazis)! Extremely bad news and extremely bad lies ahead.

            Precisely why I home schooled my children. The NEA is a tool used by socialists to force their propaganda upon our children. We MUST protect our children for this indoctrination or America is FINISHED!!!!

      More BULL$HIT from yet another liberal BULL$HIT college propaganda website

      You liberals are all to keen on providing links to liberal sites citing biased polls so when are you going to use your diction skills (as if liberals have the capacity) to support your agenda? None of you have any practical experience to relate to and certainly haven’t the ability to support your belief. Other than providing a link you’ve done nothing.

          Your socialist handlers have told you that you will receive a piece of the pie. Sadly with socialism someone is going to get something but that someone won’t be you.

    The best way to handle this situation, remove the illegal population for starts,these people are a voting bloc for the Bolsheviks. Next, castrate all women on welfare Draft all male welfare recipients and send them to Afghanistan or North Africa, they like Barry so much, let them go fight his battles. win or lose would be a victory for us either way.

    This country has gone too far, the Bolsheviks have won, we are out voted and they are dragging us into a Communist State. Multiculturalism has destroyed

    the Education system, we see the results every day, Almost all our larger Cities are are a breeding ground for terror and crime.

    So let’s divide the country or lets fight, either way it will eventually come to that.

    • Vis Fac

      Castrating any women would be like pulling teeth from a pullet; impossible. I do agree to having all people serve in the military. Those who are qualified can receive education those who don’t do landscaping, domestic, and janitorial services. If not in the military certainly in urban areas where they remove graffiti and clean up trash.

      Just murder everyone in the United States who doesn’t agree with you politically, around 270 million American citizens. That is the most efficient way of doing it – and speaks more to Tea Party principles: genocidal racism and mass murder on a scale that outdoes the Nazis. This has always been the true conservative agenda. At least you are willing to admit it, Adolf.

      • Chuckb

        Mark, What a simpleton reply. You must fit in the class of people I refer too

    • Stuart Shepherd

      You’re right, chuckb, and mark- let’s start with you- seriously- you vicious hate-filled bag of wind.

  • laura merrone

    My husband served in the military primarily for the benefits he would eventually receive. He actually served in the Air National Guard in Florida. He was supposed to have these at 60 although he had many health problems which we think started during his military service so hopefully we will get a payout a little earlier when he turns 58. However, our son was deemed 50% disabled and will receive benefits of $800 a month for life from his military service…no wonder the system will probably eventually “go broke”. Too many people are on gov’t benefits…

    • mark

      Right, both your husband and your son are parasites, according to Mr. Livingston and should not receive anything. You have a problem with this? Then, you’re obviously not a patriotic American. Have them renounce all benefits and join the Tea Party instead.

      • Stuart Shepherd

        That’s NOT what Mr. Livingston said, he only quoted statistics and you are beyond despicable- total slime- for saying that to the wife and mother of military veterans. You have serious, serious problems of character and personality and really even morals to say such a thing to her. You ought to be ashamed- but then you wouldn’t have said it if it was something you were going to be ashamed about. Vicious beyond belief.

        • laura merrone

          Even if we lost all our benefits, we will survive because of our faith in God. We know our country is in trouble and are prepared to pay the price for that. I would rather side with the Tea Party any day then with the Liberals who have their heads in the sand. As one patriot many years ago said: Give me liberty or give me death. (Patrick Henry, of course.)

        • Dennis

          I agree, he is vicious, bur even more vicious than he, you should go up to the Facebook comments and read Tatiana Covington’s post, WOW, Talk about being full of hate, Hell here it is:Tatiana Covington · Top Commenter · U of Arizona

          How to lighten the load:

          1. Get all the obsoletes and undesirables onto EBT, Section 8, SSI, etc.

          2. Wait till a safe date to lull them to sleep: say, 1/1/20.

          3. Turn off all the benefits permanently and everywhere.

          4. Wait 60 days.

          5. Send in hazmat teams to clear the remains and terminate stragglers.

          6. Recolonize the vacated areas.

          7. Destroy all records of this effort.

          8. Never, ever speak of it again.

      • Motov

        I seem to recall Jimmy Carter opened up benefits to people who did not pay a dime into the system.

    Every one who receives an income should pay the full Social Security tax. If that were to happen, then Social Security could be properly funded. What people like Bob hate is the fact that Social Security makes everyone dependent on everyone else. In other words, Social Security is truly a “Brothers Keeper” type of system. From the lowest line worker to the highest CEO, we are ALL dependent on each other.

    Unless you WANT poor, old, sick, crippled people living on the streets….
