    It would require charities, religious organizations, and community organizations to pick up the slack. Poverty is a local problem, not a federal one.

    It would just require people to stop being lazy and stupid and irresponsible so that there isn't all that much slack that needs to be picked up.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    How about we stop outsourcing, become autonomous once again, open up trade with the world (for all of our goods, to anyone), close our borders to everything except trade, let the people have their money (wait...so they can SPEND IT aka perpetuating the economy), and stop fighting non-sensical wars overseas.

    What a novel thought.

    Poverty eliminated through economic expansion. You mean, we don't need to rob people of their success to end poverty? People can work if there are jobs available?! ZOMG!!!

    Wait. There's the problem of the indoctrinated lazy. It will take a few generations, but eventually they'll stop.

    If they have low/no income, how can they be penalized?

    I think the best way to combat poverty is to stop devoting so much time trying to turn the polls section here into your own, private conspiracy asylum, and go out and start working for a living.

    Thanks to Al Gore's climate savings, it's 3 below zero here, I can not cast concrete at this time. And on top of that, he's the one who invented the internet...
