Half of all children born to women under 30 in America now are illegitimate. Three in 10 white children are born out of wedlock, as are 53 percent of Hispanic babies and 73 percent of black babies. Rising right along with the illegitimacy rate is the drug-use rate, the dropout rate, the crime rate and the incarceration rate. The family, cinder block of society, is disintegrating, and along with it, society itself. Writes Rector, “The welfare system is more like a ‘safety bog’ than a safety net.” Heritage scholars William Beach and Patrick Tyrrell put Rector’s numbers in perspective: “Today … 67.3 million Americans — from college students to retirees to welfare beneficiaries — depend on the federal government for housing, food, income, student aid or other assistance. … The United States reached another milestone in 2010. For the first time in history, half the population pays no federal income taxes.” The 19th century statesman John C. Calhoun warned against allowing government to divide us into “tax-payers and tax-consumers.” This, he said, “would give rise to two parties and to violent conflicts and struggles between them, to obtain the control of the government.” We are there, Mr. Calhoun, we are there.http://www.imaginativeconservative.org/2012/02/did-great-society-ruin-society.html
