As evidenced by this last election, the "takers" in our society have taken control of the political process and will likely do so for many, many years, if not forever. They have found they can vote themselves many benefits from the public coffers by simply voting for the candidates, or party, that offers them the most.
The "makers" will soon realize that being a "maker" is not beneficial as the taxes they must pay to subsidize the "takers" are unbearable and that they have to work to receive the same benefits as the "takers." This will, in the long run, turn the "makers" into "takers" and ruin their determination to work hard to get ahead. Therefore, the American Dream will die!
The America that has been the shining beacon on the hill for so many people in this world, who have wanted to come here, will learn that America has turned from capitalism to socialism and the land of opportunity will be no more. We are nearly there now with this election.
