I am 46 years old and I remember back when I was a kid, people took pride in making their own way, without the governments help. In fact, taking government cheese back then was considered an embarrassment, and often people refused it out of sheer pride. Thanks to the progressives movement toward a socialist, nanny state, those days are long gone. Now, people have no sense of pride, and actually demand that the government provide for their every need. It's a real shame what the liberal agenda has done to American society.
