    Moderator's Warning:
    Economy limping back to strengthapdst and obvious Child, cease with the personal attacks immediately or thread bans and/or infractions will be handled out.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    They protect us from intimidation. I'll grant you that it's not ideal, but it's the best solution that there is.

    Indirectly. However, I'm not going to pay the guy who's robbing me. I'd rather pay the guy who's protecting me. You know, incentivize the good work rather than the bad.

    taxes are pretty direct. they come right out of your own pocket.
