Conservatives, in the traditional sense would not support the idea of giving away free food if it at the expense of individuals.. ie food provided by
a socialist program like welfare. I frequent a few almost entirely conservative forums, namely ar15.com and thehighroad. I don't consider myself a
conservative, nor are republican, nor a liberal, nor a democrat. If I had to label myself something it would be a libertarian, and perhaps somewhat
of an anarchist. The only scenario I would support regarding healthcare or food is one where they have evolved from a moneyless society. Once we're
no longer forced to take from one group of people in order to provide for another group of people, then social programs like public "health care"
could work. However even with a moneyless society, the current form of modern medicine is backwards. Rather than enhancing the body's ability to
heal itself efficiently, we try to replace our own regenerative capabilities with chemicals designed to inhibit symptoms and mask the problems we face
rather than allowing the source of those problems to be eliminated by the body itself. Cancer treatment is a prime example of this backwards logic.
Kill everything, and hopefully you'll get all of the cancer. Well, what good is being cancer free when your body is also being destroyed by the
'medicine' that is supposed to kill the cancer? I do not understand why the primary focus of medicinal research is not understanding how the human
body can heal itself in order to provide the most suitable conditions for it to do so.
