Herd of Sheeple

I just love kickin’ that old horse, Socialist Insecurity. It’s such a perfect example of how far we’ve fallen from a once-proud nation of independent people who prized self-sufficiency and were skeptical of government into a bleating herd of quivering sheeple, utterly dependent on Big Government to take care of us.

world has ever known, has done more to destroy the American ideals of
self-sufficiency and personal responsibility than any other single
