It's my money. So, I don't want them to spend my money on drugs. It's a part of my right. You know, all that, "taxation" and, "representation", thing.Yes it is selective. And yes you should not provide welfare to corporations, but you do and have to accept that. As for testing them... easy, take part of the welfare check and hire a company to come and test everyone. Not as hard as you think.... after all you want to do exactly the same with people on welfare and that is no different... it is a medium to large corporation size and far more spread out.
Doubtful. There are far far more non-welfare people who have the cash to buy drugs. So in total numbers the non-welfare people have by a country mile. And even in % of the population group they might even have it also.
Well that is another matter.. Do you really think that the druggies will give up their habit just because you think it is a good idea to stop paying them welfare? Do you not think that crime will start to skyrocket as these former welfare persons now go to crime (or even more crime) and that in turn fills your overfull prisons even more up? How about trying to help these people out of a life of drugs instead of just tossing them to the side like yesterdays fast food trash?
So it is more expensive now to pay for rent and electricity for welfare people than paying for a prison cell with food and water for said person? Who you gonna let out of the prisons to be able fit in the new crop of convicted criminals? Bernie Madoff, some terrorist or drug dealer.. how about a few rapists and child molesters? Or you gonna spend a 10s of billions in building new prisons to harbour them? Why not just make Alaska into one big prison camp? Would be much cheaper, since it would be Canada and Russia that had to take on most of the security... or maybe your colony Puerto Rico? Add a few tropical diseases and no healthcare and watch the "problem go away" fast!
I dont disagree at all. But just cutting them off and throwing them in the street is selective partisan ideology. And I stand by my comments that all persons and companies who get any form of government grant/money/tax break/subsidy should be required to have drug tests. There are far more druggies outside the "welfare" system than there are in.. in total numbers.
Too bad you're not an American. You might actually get it.
