Dependent Voters

The Lake County Congressman who everyone loves to hate, Joe Walsh, is at it again. He's been hogging all the headlines, or at least all the YouTube bandwidth. According to the Daily Herald, Walsh told a townhall:
"The Democratic Party promises groups of people everything," the McHenry Tea Partyer said. "They want the Hispanic vote. They want Hispanics to be dependent on government, just like they got African Americans dependent on government. That's their game."

Here's the irrefutable video evidence:

While Walsh is probably not counting on getting much of the African American or Hispanic vote, he did qualify his remarks to the Daily Herald:
In an interview Friday, Walsh said his statements "have nothing to do with race."

Walsh who can be counted on to call a spade a spade, deserves kudos. His concern has everything to do with government subsidies and those who have become dependent on them. The big-government political parties are so freewheeling when it comes out to making promises, your LakeCountyEye can immediately think of at least 10 more groups of people who would be indigent were it not for their government entitlements. Here are ten of them:

Ten More Voting Blocks Dependent on
Their Government's Largess
  1. Public Sector Pensioners
  2. Route 53 Extension Planners
  3. Medicare / Medicaid / Social Security Recipients
  4. Lake County Fielders Season Ticket Holders
  5. Concealed Carry Advocates
  6. Fort Sheridan Golfers
  7. Lake County Traffic Circle Proponents
  8. Nuclear Power Supporters
  9. Lake County Casino High Rollers
  10. One-Term Congressmen

Look for your LakeCountyEye with no budget axe to grind.
