Let the country go over the fiscal cliff. The lies about the end of the world if the United States goes over the cliff are nothing more than jokes.
The left wants it to happen so more people are dependent on government and are scared if they lose the entitlements that they have paid or not paid into. Well, there are more people getting benefits than there are people paying in. Their philosophy is to mess with the people who have to work for their money and take more from them.
That sounds like envy: I don't have it and you do, so you should give more so I have more.
I have worked for what I have in life without demanding that someone else be responsible for taking care of me. I learned from my parents, who grew up during the Great Depression, that a person is responsible for himself and his family, not the government.
I wish people would get more backbone and say the same. It is all about self-responsibility.
