I disagree that we buy influence directly.
What we do is create dependents. Both domestically and abroad.
In any park in america there are signs that say "Pease do not feed the animals. The animals will grow dependent on the handouts and then they will
never learn to take care of themselves".
What happens when generations of people are fed by the government?
All government money should have attached to it counselors and Job finders.. Why put people inside concrete slabs when we could give them books
instead? Government money doesn't have to be creating dependents as long as you are teaching someone to fish while giving them a fish..
I'd rather do that than support 2.5 million people in jail for 4 times my girlfriends yearly pay per person.
People getting food stamps should have people in the government to talk to and be advised from.. They should be looking for work.. This is not the
right time to be starting most businesses though, so, new jobs won't be flowing in very fast..
Tupac warned about this in relation to the black communities.
If we don't take care of our communities who will? If we don't take care of our communities we create monsters. The people are our only strength, so
lets fix the body of America. Doctors want to cut out the "cancer" and I think a lot of people have viewed the situation that way.. The cancer isn't
people, it's the situation.
This is all in relation to the money government ALREADY spends.. I would like to see government be smaller, and it can only get smaller as fast as
people pick up the slack the government is holding.. I have become a conservative even though I grew up democrat hippy.. I have this weird hybrid idea
that we should be working towards conservatism and small government, but along the way we need to support people and help them to come with us.. We
can't just do it all at once, remove the safety net and watch our country fall to anarchy. It's a process.
I wish more people in government understood calculus rather than algebra.. Then they could see the process, not the variables.. The whole outcome, not
the details.. The whole TRUTH, not the BS.
