But it is the American people who are demanding more and more government services, bigger and bigger government, and less personal responsibility.
Obama and the Democrats pretty much swept the women's and the youth vote. These two blocs put them over the top and I believe the 'big government' Democrats are in power for quite some time to come.
But the joke will be on the women, their children, and the youth of today. They will foot the cost of the big government deficits. The cost of this monolithic government will come out of the properity of their futures. Just wait until the interest rates begin rising on the 16 trillion+ debt begins to rise, or if foreign countries begin to call in their debts. There will be no money for programs for the next generation. So be it, that's the path they chose.
