NO since Obama took office the way they count deportations has been changed if you turn someone back before entering it is now counted as a deportation.
It has been said that coorprate welfare is greater than social walefare. Is that true?
No 2/3 of the Federal budget is mandatory for entitlement programs. Source
It is said that the federal reserve is not federal but that it is a entinity seperate of gov. and that we just print the money we need based on false economics. Is that true?
The Federal Reserve is a private concern authorized by congress in 1913. The economics aren't false the money is, there is no gold standard. It's only good because they say so.
Do you think it would be possible for america to take care of even more people while even more people do not work?
Not until you get the other half of the tax paying population to work to pay for the half that doesn't work and the ones you want to allow in.
I think we can handle the whole of mankind by finding the right balance. Bottom line some have a desire to work and prosper that goes beyond money and some are here just to do other things. It is just conditioning that makes us not understand that a highly functional society living up to their job desires can be found and that greed and the feeling that some are not deserving gets in our way. It would be possible for 1000 people to keep 1000000 fed. Desire to work and create and help does not stem from money like we believe it does.
Thats a 100 to 1 ratio and right now pure fantasy, the government controls farming and farm production. Besides will you want to work to take care of 100 people I think not.

A lot of people don't believe corporate welfare exists because the man on the TV has not told them so.
A lot of people believe welfare is good because the man on TV told them so. If that doesn't work the government will run ads

Send emails to anyone, journalist, government or anyone in media about welfare abuse and see what happens.
Most of all, try talking to those who criticize those who are out of work and watch their eyes tell you, 'I never thought of that before.'
Try to talk to those who criticize there isn't enough long term unemployment money and ask how many jobs programs there really are.
