(All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing)
Power-hungry, so-called "progressives" have brought us to the state of affairs described over 200 years ago by Thomas Jefferson.
Yes, it is "progressives" who have taken America back to the Old World ideas which preceded the great experiment in ordered liberty, bringing America to its knees before the world under a regime which pretends to "take care of" us.
Thomas Jefferson warned Americans:
"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers." --Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816. ME 15:39
Note Jefferson's very last thought here. He declares that when government taxing and debt have reached certain levels, in order for individuals to survive, then their chosen "employment" becomes "hiring ourselves to rivet their (the government's) chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers." Might that account for why it is government employment levels which have risen at such great rates in the past 2 years?
Inasmuch as government creates no wealth and has no money, the pay for every job in government must first come out of the pockets of hardworking citizens in the private sector or be borrowed (to be paid back eventually from the pockets of future generations).
Ahhh, guess that's what you call "redistributing" wealth! In Jefferson's words, it's called "rivet(ing) chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers."
Many of them will think there’s nothing wrong with it, maybe even a good thing. Not hired by those “ evil corporations”

(The Republic is dead. I do not owe what we have any loyalty, wealth or sympathy.)
And this is why “unemployment” is down to what 7.1%?
I wonder if these govt jobs included private companies contracting with the govt.

Indeed, I have talked to my benchmark libs about the death panels, and when they could no longer deny that they are necessary, they stated that it was better that the gov’t deny care to someone than an insurance company.

If we had a free press, the general public would know that every new public sector job is nothing but a higher tax burden on the private sector. They would also have been informed of the jobs lost during Obama’s tenure, not just the jobs that ‘Obama created’. They would know that Obama didn't kill Bin Ladin, in fact he had to have his arm twisted to say ‘yes’ after months of begging by the SEALs. If we had a free press, we would never have been subjected to the misery of an Obama Admin.
Just the way Obama likes it.

(Obama lies, Granny dies.)
Seventy-three percent of the new civilian jobs created in the United States over the last five months are in government...
And most of the "private sector" new jobs are probably working for government contractors and vendors.

To make this news even worse, many of the government hires were to replace others retiring to their lavish pensions and benefits once they were sure Obaama would keep their checks flowing.

‘Bullish’ November Data Mask An Ugly Truth About Jobs
Posted 12/07/2012 06:54 PM ET
Economy: A rip-roarer for job creation and a major drop in the unemployment rate. At least, that’s how the mainstream media sum up November’s job numbers. But scratch the data and a different story surfaces.
A lot of pundits thought the November jobs data were pretty good, with 146,000 new jobs and a drop in unemployment to 7.7%. But look closer, and you see recession mode.
With nonfarm payrolls swelling by 146,000 and the jobless rate easing from 7.9% to 7.7%, November looked pretty good to many pundits. But the underlying trends aren’t so favorable, and the future, with a slowing economy about to drive off a fiscal cliff, isn’t bright at all.
Start with payroll jobs. The 146,000 wasn’t awful, but to make a serious dent in joblessness, we need to add at least 200,000 a month for a prolonged period. In this poisoned atmosphere for business, that won’t happen.
Since 2011, businesses have added about 151,000 jobs a month. But since June that’s slowed to just 139,000. We’re clearly going the wrong way.
And by the way, remember those big payroll gains in September and October, right before the election? Forget it. The Labor Department has revised down its job estimates for those two months by 49,000.
OK, but we still have private-sector job growth, right? Not really. In the last six months, 621,000 of the 847,000 new jobs created have been in government, not the private sector, according to CNSNews.com. That’s 73% of all jobs not a healthy labor market.
As for that big “drop” in the unemployment rate, all of it was due to the fact that 540,000 Americans are no longer looking for work. They either dropped out, took early disability or retired. Since the start of 2009, 9.7 million Americans have fallen into this category.
