Government handouts are like addictions. A junkie gets a free fix and with that, temporary relief, delirium, and happiness until their addiction eventually kills them.
Recall that black lady at the obama rally who loudly (and happily) declared, "barak is goin' to pay my mortgage, and give me gas money for my car!" Her comment wasn't so much a shock as it was disgusting. The Dems have won, and that, much more than an election. Their perseverance has paid off. They have millions of junkies, adolescents with adult prerogatives, bowing before them.
It just may take another civil war to turn this insanity around, but this time, millions of slaves, black and white, will back their masters. The upside is that they hate guns, and free people don't.
