Famous country music legend Charlie Daniels is worried about the future of America, and he shared his terrifying concerns about our future.
Because of the road President Barack Obama has lead us down, our nation is no longer exceptional, and it will only get worse. The work ethic of America is being replaced with an entitlement mentality, as politicians in Washington, D.C. offer voters more handouts in exchange for votes. It’s a never-ending cycle, and it cannot last.
Charity – the act of giving money, food, or other kinds of help to people who are poor, sick.
Federal entitlements, regardless of whatever clever antonym or fancy bureaucratic name they go by are actually charity, or at least that is what they started out as.
I believe in charity, but sometimes I think I have a much different definition than many people, and definitely a different definition from the one the government operates on. However, what the government practices is not actually charity, but patronage.
Now put aside your politics, your political correctness, your automatic rhetorical responses and answer these questions honestly.
Is any able-bodied person entitled to spend their lives sponging off the federal or state dole while you work hard to make a living and pay the taxes that support them?
Does anybody have the right to bring children into this world and walk away without ever paying a cent for their support, leaving the cost of their upbringing to the taxpayers?
If your answers to the two above questions was no, then you should be as angry, disgusted and disillusioned as I am. I’m fed up with the bogus disability claims and men who father scores of children and are never held accountable for their welfare.
There are men who go through life carelessly fathering dozens of children who will never even know his name. They leave behind whole families of underprivileged kids who will never have a decent chance at life, raised in a hard scrabble, hand-to-mouth existence, in an environment where dodging bullets is a way of life and the local drug dealer is the most respected person in the neighborhood.
Daniels has an idea on how to fix the problem of the welfare state breaking up families and replacing the role of the father. This is a bold step in the right direction!
People say that we’ve gone so far into the entitlement direction that there is no way to rectify it, but actually, there is a very simple way to fix this problem.
To qualify for public assistance, the mother of the child should be required to identify the father, a simple task in this era of DNA testing. The father then either supports his children, all his children, or goes to jail until they all reach the age of majority.
If he has fathered multiple children, then he should have multiple jobs. No copouts, and no exceptions.
Just start this program, let the word get around and watch the birth rate of fatherless children fall like a brick.
There are some who draw a disability check from the government and then go out and participate in sports and other strenuous exercises, no more disabled than a racehorse.
That person – after medical exams to prove the sham – should be taken off assistance, spend a year in jail and be forced to pay back the money they’ve already been paid.
Charlie Daniels is also worried about how socialism has spread throughout America, and politicians continue using the federal treasury as their own personal “piggy bank.” Our elected officials have shown themselves incapable of handling money. Highway tax dollars are squandered, social security is ready to collapse, and government is far too big to support.
Daniels ends his letter with a prayer for peace in Israel and asking us all to support our troops.

I for one agree with Charlie Daniels. An able body person should be working and not living off of other people's tax dollars. But we see this everyday. And if a person is truly not disabled they should be working as well. I am a disabled person. It took me four years to get my disability started. I can no longer work although I wish I could I felt more alive and worth while when I was able to work and earn a living. The disease I have there is no cure for and it just keeps getting worse as time goes by. I don't dwell on it I am greatful for each and every day I am still here on earth.
