    I don't pretend otherwise.

    I'm saying specifically that the federal government should not be handing out charity checks to people or funding or running charitable services.

    That's what I mean by robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    Right, that's why they lost the last two Presidential elections because they're so good...

    That is one reason I will not declare a lean on this site as my positions cross ideological lines but are mostly based on pragmatics.

    Thank you for clarifying that.

    I am not against the government making it possible for people with special needs to live in dignity. That would include the seriously handicapped and disabled. Again, I think that is simply part of living in a Christian based society which will not allow people to simply die.

    Nor am I. I'm simply against the federal government doing so.

    hmmm...I could have swore that some time back you declared your lean as liberal on this site...Regardless, your posting has certainly revealed you in that camp whether of not you 'declare' it...So maybe when you guys are PMing back and forth on strategy on how to go after us conservatives, you should clue the rest of the collective hive in on our being a Christian based nation is a fact.

    Thanks.

    We will always have a welfare state. Desperate people do desperate things. Imagine telling the nation that all welfare, SS, Medicare, and unemployment insurance payments will cease as of Nov. 30th. The Police would be so busy that they would just give up and go home to protect their families.

    While we're at it, the stock market might as well crash. It would be much more devastating than in 1929 due to today's population.
