    The people are the economic engine of the U.S. They provide a service (work) and in return they're supposed to be taken care of (services). In the absence of a decent paycheck their needs have to come from somewhere.

    No, individuals produce in order to receive compensation. If not, they do not deserve anything...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Most people receiving government services also work. In times of high unemployment wages are very weak and options are limited, this increases the incidence of those who are unable to completely care for themselves and families through no fault of their own.

    So if we roll back all the services to the people, what do you think would happen?
    The people will rebel if any services are cut because, for the first time in US history, an overwhelming number of otherwise able bodied people have become dependent on the government and cannot function well without government support. So the politicians, in order to get elected, will simply promise more because the people would not want otherwise., We know that the country will be about $20,000,000,000,000 by the time Obama is out of office but does anyone but 'right wing' extremists' really care? America is no longer a country that thinks long term and would prefer that their children look after this problem.

    The America of today is not the same country that existed for the previous 200 years, and thus will go the way of all those powers before them. It's really too bad for an Americaphile but it's also interesting to watch history unfold in front of me. It's like watching the Berlin Wall come down, but without the same sense of optimism.

    It usually is a fault of their own.

    Where is that in the Constitution, or anywhere else?

    The economic manipulators who created the bubble. The big banks, the federal reserve, the politicians who enabled them, the people who voted them into office and still support their cronyism. Those who resist financial sector reform, regulations, prison for financial criminals, etc.

    The destruction of middle class power, unions, manufacturing jobs, access to affordable higher education and healthcare.

    This all puts the middle class into a position of weakness, of dependency, and you all support cutting the cord and sending them into the abyss as a solution.

    Yes, that would be it. They want some up-dating in order to make it more government friendly.
