This Is Your Brain on Entitlements

The Obama administration is like a drug dealer, Rick Santorum told Oklahoma churchgoers Sunday, and entitlement programs are the addictive drug they’re peddling. “That’s how they see you, as people, to get hooked like a drug dealer, someone to become dependent on them, and once that happens, they got you,” he warned. “America is changed forever. No country that has socialized medicine has ever gone back the other way. No country that has lost its freedom has ever regained it.” It seems like fear is becoming the preferred tactic for GOP candidates to win over voters ahead of tomorrow’s Super Tuesday primary contest. Newt Gingrich’s super PAC sent out an email Monday declaring that Tuesday could mean “life or death for America.”
