Do you realize what this story is actually about?
(CNSNews.com) – The number of Americans age 16 or older who decided not to work or even to seek a job increased by 8,332,000 to a record 88,839,000 in President Barack Obama’s first term, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
At the same time, the number of retired workers collecting Social Security increased by only 4,234,480.
Well, the first thing we need to understand is that not all of these people “decided” not to look for a job. the government just declared them to have quit looking. But then, why should they look? the government is making it easy to live without having to work. And, once you accept government dependency, you become a slave to the government and an all but guaranteed vote for the Party that promises to give you just one morsel or barbel more than the last.
But setting all that aside, if we counted unemployment the way we used to — before our corrupt government changed the formula to suit their propaganda needs — we would be in one of if not the worst depression this nation has even known. You just don’t see it because the media controls the narrative and the government is redistributing just enough from the producers to keep people from having to live in shanty towns.
If we were a nation of people who valued honesty, both with the world and ourselves, we wouldn’t stand for any of this. But, alas, we are no longer that nation, and along with the loss of our national sense of righteousness and honor, we’ve lost that insulation that once shielded us from the repetitive cycles of history. But no more. Unless we turn back and turn back now, we will soon be Greece — or worse.
