Well, one has to consider too that if help and assistance were too easily acquirable, programs such as welfare would be abused a lot more than it is
There is a reason why most people refrain from, for example, showing up late to work every day. If it really didn't matter if you lost your job or
not because HELP was so easily and readily available, then there would be no consequences for screwing up.
And, I stronly feel that it is not some governments responsibility to take care of you and be your nanny and insurance policy against
irresponsibility, wrong decisions, or even just plane bad luck. If it were left up to me, our government would only be responsible for DEFENSE, law
enforcement, and coordination on infrastructure projects (i.e. airports, highways, etc.). In my world, the government wouldn't be involved in
anything pertaining to the management of our PERSONAL lives! In fact, the government should not even be involved in our economy. There shouldn't
even be a social security program, it's not some governments responsibility to take care of saving for MY eventual retirement. The government should
NOT be like a charity organization. By providing charity, they are competing with things like churches, and I thought there was suppose to be a
separation of state and church. And, they are taking that responsibility away from us. Who has much money left to GIVE, after Uncle Sham has taken
your charity dollars away from you via income taxes? I do not want the government to be in charge of my charitably, I don't even want them
determining for ME who should receive my charity dollars either.
I believe everyone should be responsible for their own lives and the management thereof. And when people need help, they should turn to their family,
their friends, their neighbors, churches, charity organizations. A government should not be involved in social engineering and manipulation and
