    There seem to be 2 extremes on this issue:

    1) I've got mine, now you get yours, or die. This is not right and is pretty extreme.

    But, at the other extreme....

    2) Let the government enslave people, because that is what happens with welfare. Malcolm X saw government handouts as a form of slavery, and worked with black communities so that they looked after their own, and those who joined the Muslim movement at that time were given a hand up, not a hand out.

    Communities need to work on the local level to help their own people in need. When you give it to the Federal government, the program becomes very bloated, and the real beneficiaries are social workers who have an incentive to keep people dependent on government. That incentive is their job. If they get people off welfare, then they lose their own job in the process.

    I am not saying that we should let the hungry die, but the Federal government is not the place for intervention. The government makes it very expensive, and more could be done with a lot less money at the local level. But cities and other local entities are broke. Why? Because the Federal government takes their money and wastes the crap out of it.

    There has to be a more sensible solution that will give services more bang for the buck, and it is not at the Federal level that this is going to happen.

    It's perfectly right, and not extreme at all. You have to list the corollary:

    If you got yours, and you give a ****, then give it all away.

    That's the "Put Your Own Damn Money Where Your Mouth Is" Corollary.

    It's the foundation garment of the United States.
