Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week.

These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.

It is not a rancher with a few hundred head of cattle that is attacking their habitat, nor an energy company developing a fossil fuel. It is big government and its primary weapon — an ever-expanding welfare state.

First, let’s look at the basic taxonomy of the full-time, year-round American worker.

  1. Not too long ago, a staistic like this would have enraged society to the point where steps would have to be taken to fix it. Think the Welfare Reform Act of 1996.

    The problem now is that the takers have grown to the point where they are more politically powerful than the givers, for the simple reason that there are more of them.

    We are in very dangerous and previously uncharted economic waters my friends, and while you may feel okay in your little bubbles of normalcy, the future is something you need to seriously be concerned about.
