We all know that any myth has some truth to it! from reading peoples replies I can see there
are a lot of you who feel that most people that are on assistance should not be there! Maybe
some of that is true but we are a cooperative society and this is what has brought us to be the
most prevalent species of this world! There is so much wrong with this world right now and to
just eliminate the social safety net would in fact cause way more problems then it would solve!
If you believe that just ending a persons ability to survive will curtail the small amount of monies
we pay for welfare it wont! If you think those people will just crawl away and die or find work at
some non existent job then you are delusional! All that will change is instead of paying for food
stamps and health benefits we'll be paying for prisons and policeman! I can promise you that the
latter will end up costing a whole lot more!
So what is the solution? The solution is none should be given a free ride! Anyone that is collecting
should be used like the prison work release! As for corporate welfare that is another problem and
one that will be extremely hard to do something about! Why? because they have the money to put
a mouth on the issue to turn the tide for their favor! As for the poor they have no one to speak for
them and this is why I find it difficult to trust any statistics coming from anywhere!
In the end, the only way we will ever solve the problems of the world will be together and that will
only happen when we can start to humble ourselves, give up our pride and arrogance!
Only unity for the betterment of ALL mankind will bring peace and prosperity to each!
The only problem is choosing to!
