Clash in the USA? Makers vs. Takers

Written by Doug Giles on July 13, 2012

Good column by Arthur Herman on the Makers vs. the Takers.

Let me go on record saying that the pathetic progressives have utterly gutted America’s grand independent spirit. This foreign born entitlement mentality, that whines and moans because others are rewarded for working their butts off is truly, truly pathetic.

I know peeps who have truly had a bad hand dealt to them in life and have turned lemons into mike’s hard lemonade. #unamerican #unbecoming #ridiculous #effeminate

From Fox News- “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Abe Lincoln used those words in 1858 to describe a country that was careening toward civil war. Now we’re a house divided again and another civil war is coming, with the 2012 election as its Gettysburg. Call it America’s coming civil war between the Makers and the Takers. On one side are those who create wealth, America’s private sector–the very ones targeted by President Obama’s tax hikes announced Monday. On the other are the public employee unions; left-leaning intelligentsia who see the growth of government as index of progress; and the millions of Americans now dependent on government through a growing network of government transfer payments, from Medicaid and Social Security to college loans and corporate bailouts and handouts (think GM and Solyndra).
