Goods to goodies

We used to see factory parking lots full of cars and crowded buses emptying workers ready to enter plants to produce American goods for the nation and the world– automobiles, appliances, bicycles, tires, shoes, clothing, toys, furniture and radios and televisions. The sale of those products paid worker wages which supported families and built a strong nation.

What do we see today? A growing number of people who depend on government benefits. And what do these growing numbers of Americans make today? What do they produce that gives them the money to put food on the table and a roof over their head?

They produce votes for politicians who promise more government benefits.
