However, where I differ from him is that I'm not against the government helping people. Because, let's face it, the government is now making enough money to feed everybody in America. The current budget is $2,6 trillion dollars, which means that there is absolutely no reason to deny people food stamps who need it. After all, there is only 313 million people in America today.
So I guess the real question is why can't we feed and help people? Well, mostly it's because the politicians are hungry for votes and must grab as much as they can for their people, and nobody else. I really don't understand this reasoning myself. Or it's the corporate elite putting pressure to get themselves bailouts or some such damnable thing for them. But I truly don't understand why we're so strapped for cash. We really shouldn't be, and without the petty bickering of the greedy politicians, we would be able to feed everybody. There simply is no real need for anymore money. It just needs to be spent in wiser ways and with less waste and keep the greed out of it.
But the real point is, on what specific policies and programs to do you agree with? I would appreciate some details please.
