"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
This poll is awful, so I am not going to select any of the responses. However, the best ways to combat poverty are to:
1. Reduce the number of teen pregnancies and pregnancies out of wedlock.
2. Reduce the number of single parent households, specifically single mother households. There is probably no greater contributor to poverty than dead beat or absent fathers.
3. Better education.
How we do that is certainly very debatable, but those 3 things would have more of a positive impact towards reducing poverty than just about anything else.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
1. Restrict legal immigration and crack down on illegal immigration and the scum who aid and hire illegals.Jobs are not some unlimited resource. When there is unemployment and a artificial surplus of workers a lot of people are not going to get jobs that pay well, they are going to be stuck working at a McDonalds or some other low wage job.
2.Improve our public k-12 schools.Most employers do not want to hire drop outs or will use a person's lack of education to pay that person less or to not promote that person. Empower districts to fire bad teachers like any other place of employment can fire bad employees. Enact parent trigger laws. Require that voters vote on any teacher union contracts since they are the ones picking up the tab.Allow school vouchers and charter schools in case the above fails.The education of our kids is far more important than the job security of any teacher or school official.
3.Require trade schools and colleges/universities to inform potential students of the likelihood that they will be able to get a job that requires the college education they are seeking as well as job predictions for those degree holders. People do not need to accumulate a unnecessary debt for a degree that may be of no value.Debt keeps some people in poverty.
4.Enact laws that will slowly raise minimum wage on it's own and make it go up and down depending on the cost of living on its own.
5.Encourage the creation of American companies.Raise tariffs of companies who outsource and raise tariffs on imported goods in order to give actual American companies equal footing with companies who pay workers next to nothing. Companies should be penalized for outsourcing to countries in order to exploit dirt cheap workers.Require that all government contracts be done with actual American companies that hire Americans.Free trade ****s Americans out of their jobs, encourages companies that do stay in America to cut corners on American made goods in order to compete with foreign made goods and strengthens the economy of enemy nations,dictatorships and communist nations which enables them to beef up their military strength and capabilities. No more engaging in "free trade" with countries whose values are contrast to ours and countries where workers make very little.
6.Lower taxes on businesses who hire mostly only full time workers and companies that have very little automation.
7..Either get rid of the employer mandate in Obama-care or if you are a supporter of Obama-care make it to apply to all businesses regardless or how many full time workers they have and regardless if they hire full time, part time, contract labor, temp service workers and or any other loophole a company may use to avoid the employer mandate.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
