Reader Opinion: We are a Dying Country

Folks, I don’t know how else to categorize this but we are living in a dying country.  Only 88,000 new jobs were added last month when we were expecting more like 188,000.  The unemployment rate, because of this terrible statistic, is down to 7.6% because so many people are no longer counted as if they are included in the workforce.  Ninety million Americans are no longer in the workforce.  Yes, that’s NINETY million!  This is 1979 levels.  The only difference is that we don’t have an election around the corner to fix it like we did in 1979.  We had that election last November, and we blew it.

In addition to payrolls only adding 88,000 jobs, an additional 82,000 went on disability in March.  We’re now up to 9 million Americans on disability.  We had nearly as many people on disability in March as people who found jobs.  I think it’s official.  We are a dying country.  There is literally no way that ObamaCae, our entitlement programs and our safety net and our absorption of immigrants, legal or otherwise, can be supported this way.  This simply cannot be sustained.  It’s a real shame because we could still be such a great country.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
