There are ways to reform or make a system which is fair, and reasonable.
There are some aspects of some child support systems which have controls which are not the best.
Did women make it this way? Think about that. Because the answer is obviously no. Most government reps are males. Their department heads are
males. The people passing the laws, statutes, regs, are generally males.
One thing remains consistent though. Many people in the position to make these laws, and make the bureaucracy around them have an agenda. Often many
of them, left, right, center, have strong opinions about families.
Interestingly, in governments where there are more females in governmental rep positions in almost equal numbers, the systems for these are actually
more FAIR. Mull that.
Let me talk about a seeming unrelated topic for a moment. Many people with government powers do not support trying to eradicate sexually transmitted
diseases. Put aside your beliefs about vaccines for a moment, and think about the arguments put out about why not to inoculate for genital warts (HPV
vaccine). Most of those arguments were from lobby groups, and government reps who WANT people to be afraid of getting STDs so that they won't screw
Those people with governmental authority, for religious reasons usually, WANT you to be punished for not engaging in sex and relationships in a way
they consider to be optimal. So they want you to see people be punished for doing so.
Well many of the people in government are men, and they know that you value your wallet. They WANT you to know that if you decide to skip out on
being in a family unit after having children, that they WANT you to feel it. They want you to tell others about it. They want you to scare the crap
out of other guys with your horror stories.
They don't want to reform those things that aren't right....not because your ex is such a meaney.... but because they want guys to stay with their
babies Momma. They BELIEVE with all their hearts that this is the best thing.
Just the same way they want people to die of HPV genital wart induced cancer for having sex.
This is a regressive punishment. It is being done due to the religious beliefs of a large sub-set of the people making the regulations.
Blaming your ex-wife is WAY easier and more satisfying than looking at what is actually happening, and thinking about if your ex-wife is actually the
people who put these laws and regs in place to begin with.
