The election has been decided and much has already been said as to the reasons for the outcome. Significant changes in demographics, explosive growth in government entitlement programs and the disintegration of the traditional family have altered principles of individualism, self-reliance and accountability that have shaped most of my lifetime.
These principles have been replaced by “the world owes me a living,” “redistribution of wealth” and, if you have been successful, “you didn’t build it.” This ideology isn’t new, but with the re-election of President Barack Obama would appear to be embraced by a majority of the nation.
Jones, of Salem, has a career in business management.
