    The folks who are getting the free stuff don't like
    the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because
    the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer
    afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

    And the folks who are paying for the free stuff
    want the free stuff to stop.

    And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more
    free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

    Now... the people who are forcing the people who pay
    for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING
    the free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the
    free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

    So... the people who are GETTING the free stuff have been
    convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the
    free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay
    for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

    We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there
    are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the
    free stuff.

    Now understand this.
    All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere
    between 200 and 250 years after being founded.
    The reason?

    The voters figured out they could vote themselves money
    from the treasury by electing people who promised to give
    them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

    The United States officially became a Republic in 1776,
    236 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff
    outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff.

    Failure to change that spells the end of the United States
    as we know it.

    We (fed) spend:

    800 Billion on defense.
    900 Billion on pensions.
    900 Billion on healthcare

    And, 400 billion welfare....(all social programs)

    You think welfare is the only thing destroying this country?

    If you're going to post such a treatise, why don't you let us know your qualifications. Where did you study?

    You're almost right. Its closer to 110 billion per year. But here's the deal, a majority of that money goes to insurance companies, not the federal government. Ever wonder why the insurance companies haven't been complaining since the government single pay program was rejected?

    We have a health insurance problem, not a healthcare (as much) problem.

    Have you ever had a good experience with a health insurance company?

    For FY 2010, Department of Defense spending amounts to 4.7% of GDP.[SUP][29][/SUP] Because the U.S. GDP has risen over time, the military budget can rise in absolute terms while shrinking as a percentage of the GDP. For example, the Department of Defense budget is slated to be $664 billion in 2010 (including the cost of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan previously funded through supplementary budget legislation[SUP][30][/SUP][SUP][31][/SUP]), higher than at any other point in American history, but still 1.1–1.4% lower as a percentage of GDP than the amount spent on military during the peak of Cold-War military spending in the late 1980s.[SUP]

    Or......we could spend the 4.7% of GDP on prayer rugs, mass grave-sites, gulags and re-programming camps. I hear Hezzbola spends quite a bit on humanitarian outreach projects...

    We already have. In that graph, 50% of our discretionary spending goes to the military projects. Veteran affairs, war spending and debt, homeland security, FBI terrorism task force is also not included as it tagged to other budgets.
