Romney’s Entitlement Speech – He’s 100% Correct!

When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.

Citizens of Greece burning down buildings and destroying their streets because the Greece Parliament was FORCED to cut back on entitlements – they could no longer sustain their ENTITLEMENT spending!

If one ever wants to see the end result of an overwhelmed ENTITLEMENT SOCIETY, please reference what shape Greece or Spain or Italy, heck most of Europe is in; then you shall see what shall happen to America if this mentality is not reigned in. So, was Romney correct in his assesment of the American Entitlement Society back in May when a secret video camera capture a speech he was giving?

Yes, Romney was 100% correct and while what he said may not be “Politically Correct”, his comments were nonetheless fact!

As of 2011, if we were to erase 100% of our defense spending; our annual debt would go to 60%+ in ENTITLEMENT SPENDING …….

And because one paying for another persons education is factually NOT a right, here is what our entitlement spending is WITH education included – in 2013, next year we will factually reach $3 TRILLION in spending on ENTITLEMENT programs alone……….OVER $1 TRILLION spent on education an we are ranked 25th or worse in the world (get a clue: it isn’t a lack of money on the education system that is the problem)

We currently reside in a society, under President Barack Obama whereby we have record numbers on welfare + WIC + food stamps + unemployed or under employed + dropped out of the workforce entirely but are still capable of working + more on SS disability + lower education standards + Billions annually in Pell Grants + Fannie and Freddie Housing debacle + lower Global Competitiveness and the below is what the Democrat party embraces: Occupy Wall Street

Because nothing compares to the thousands complaining about not having a job or not getting free college education like protesting for weeks and, shocking NOT WORKING or going to college.

What is the mental capacity of an individual who believes they can protest for weeks demanding a job while they are actively NOT looking for one while in the process of complaining about not having one?

Reminds me of the old cocaine commercial where the guy says he has to work longer hours to make more money so he can do more coke so that he can work longer hours to make more money so he can do more coke….etc…etc….

So, when Romney states that we have an entitlement problem in this country; and that this election is about whether or not you believe in a country like Greece + Spain + Italy + most of Europe that has met its demise, or the country our Founding Fathers founded that says you have the right to make YOUR own destiny and NOTHING will be handed to you………those are your two choice come November 2012.

Government Entitlement for some at the expense of others and a country like Greece = Barack Obama

or

Self Reliance and hard work is YOUR success maintaining with the founding principles of America = Mitt Romney

    Michigan Republicans created a “nonhomestead tax” which makes the school property tax rate on rental property four times the school property tax rate on owner-occupied homes.

    This is a local millage which must be periodically renewed, and it is wildly popular among homeowners, as the tax generates over $1,000 per year on the average rental house while owner-occupied homes are exempt.

    Talk about people voting themselves money.

    Thanks, Michigan Republicans!

      And? If you have an apartment complex that has 100 apartments, you can effectively house 100 families with say, 2 kids each that would not be paying the school tax that is needed to help fund public schools.

      Sounds fair to me.

        Fortunately, I have facts while you are guessing, and the facts are on my side and not yours.

        A nationwide organization of apartment owners and managers says that single-family homes are three times more likely to have school-age children than are apartment buildings. I’ll make two points myself: (1) houses on average have considerably more bedrooms than apartments on average – most houses have three or more bedrooms, and few apartments have three or more bedrooms. Local governments prefer single-family houses to apartments, and prefer smaller apartments to larger apartments. (2) Buying a home becomes a top priority for many families when their first child is born, and many of these families do, indeed, own homes by the time their first child enters school.

        According to the National Multi Housing Council (http://www.nmhc.org/PressRelease.cfm?ItemNumber=57332):

        New data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Housing Survey (AHS) disprove the conventional wisdom that new apartment construction disproportionately burdens local school systems. According to the AHS, single-family owners are significantly more likely to have school-age children than apartment renters. In fact, newer single-family homes average three times as many school-age children as apartment renters. There are, on average, 64 school-age children for every 100 new owner-occupied single-family houses, but just 21 children for every 100 new apartments, and only an average of 12 children for every 100 apartments in high-rise buildings (more than four stories).

        FACTS more people cram more CHILDREN and other family members into apartments than they do houses….. see Texas and California plus their ILLEGAL ALIEN populations and the FACT that they MUST cover their education costs even though they are NOT paying federal taxes to pay for said education!!!

        Again – FACT!

    Did you actually read the quote?

    Trying again…

    ——————————————————————————————————————–
    There are,on average, 64 school-age children for every 100 new owner-occupied single-family houses, but just 21 children for every 100 new apartments, and only an average of 12 children for every 100 apartments in high-rise buildings (more than four stories).

    64 school-age children per 100 houses vs 21 school-age children per 100 apartments.

    Texas and California are illegal alien magnets untypical of the other 75 percent of our great country, and citizen renters can’t be blamed for that. Illegal aliens drive up the rents we must pay and also undercut our wages, so I don’t want them here any more than you do.

    Also, your fact isn’t quantified and mine is.
