    I disagree. You are stealing the puppy food away from the seniors, and selling it on the open market.

    Give me the win for outdoing you on hyperbole. LOL.

I do however see things such as healthcare and unemployment as necessary safety nets for the good of the people as a whole. I think of it as donating my tax dollars to a worthy cause. I also donate some of my taxes to causes I don't find to be as necessary, such as an imperialistic presense in countries the world over. This is the nature of the beast. We all pay for things we don't approve of. That is not to say that the reach of these programs are not at times over stepping their bounds or that the system isn't taken advantage of. I just find it to be a lesser of two evils. I find the theory that a government without these safety nets working perfectly is a bit utopian. There will always be give and take.
    The difference being that you believe the fed can handle the job and I believe it should be left, where necessary, to the states. I think the fed, with a 14.5 trillion dollar debt and climbing, continues prove themselves incapable of responsibly managing taxpayer dollars.

    One side just wants to cut spending and taxes, and the other side wants to cut some spending and raise taxes... Both sides want to solve the problem, just disagree how to do it

    We stop producing puppy food altogether and allow the manufacturer to move their operations overseas to save a few dollars. Then we pay high tariffs on it when it comes into the states to be sold on the open market.

    60%+.

    It HAS to end, whether you want to admit it or not.
    How much welfare have you accepted?

    Unfortunately at this point in time I don't believe they can. Over the last 20 years we have seen a decline in our government's interest in the good of the people and an increase in governmental self interest. This doesn't make me believe the programs are to blame, however

    I couldn't agree more with this. Lack of governmental interest in the people is our own fault though. We have short attention spans and we don't like it when politicians make the tough decisions. Be "we" I mean the majority of the country (not likely the people going through the trouble of posting on these boards). This means politicians always have to weigh the political value of a decision and how it will rank with the electorate in the short term, rather than really think about what the best solution overall is. It's a strange situation.
