I think entitlement takes different forms. The low skilled think that someone else should take care of them and their kids who were born out of wedlock.

The older folks who didn't bother to save think Social Security should provide them with a comfortable middle class lifestyle, which it was never intended to do (and even FDR said as much).

The well off think they did it all by themselves, ignoring the reality that they probably came from supportive families (both emotionally and financially).

The entitlement mentality is pretty entranched across many segments of society and is surely not unique to Republicans.

Default I'll Admit...

...I could have gone much farther than I did, if I didn't have to do everything myself! Also, a lot of people would have gone nowhere with out my help.

There is a good reason why I'm the first person people think of when there is a problem and the last they listen to when I have a solution for a problem that they don't know they are about to have.
