How Many Government Workers Does It Take To Bankrupt The Country?

I'm just asking the question. Because if we add another 2.5 million "guvmint" workers to the 20 million we have in local, state and Federal government, we would be well over 20 times the size of the next largest employer - Walmart. That is a payroll close to $15 BILLION we taxpayers have to cover just at the Federal level.

In fact, if we start adding up all those people on Welfare, Medicare, Social Security and then add in whatever additional dependent groups Obama and friends want to create, at some point there are too many mouths to feed and not enough taxpayers. Maybe having those 40 million aborted children in the workforce might not be a bad thing right now.

I understand that we have to have some basic government functions done by government employees. And I certainly have no problem with having a well trained and armed military. But we've got 10,000 people working at the Federal level in freakin' education! What the heck am I getting for my money? There are over 80,000 people working in the IRS trying to figure out the massive tax code and making sure they confiscate every last dime from us!

Enough. Privatize, privatize privatize and get the government out of every industry possible. The path we are headed cannot be sustained. Its time to "change" before we have no "hope."
