    Because in 2008 the economy flushed down the toilet for everyone resulting in an increase in poverty that resulted in a lack for people to sustain themselves out of their own efforts.

    I personaly cant wait for China to go through that exipiriance (again when considering what happend in the late 19th century and the early 17th century).

    I don't think America spends very much on welfare in the first place.

    It depends on what one considers welfare to be. Just straight cash welfare from the actual welfare program TANF? Nowhere near $3.7 trillion over 5 years.

    My dog is a secret agent, drives an Aston Martin, has a passport, and is in North Korea right now spying on Dennis Rodman.

    His name is 007, and he has a license to growl.
