    Does anyone know why America had to spend 3.7 TRILLION on welfare over the last 5 yrs

    I just saw this in other post, and in my view there can only be ONE reason for such drastic spending on welfare - the nation is so corrupt, that it can only sustain itself by invading other nations and putting it's own people on welfare, knowing full well that if they get off welfare, people will rise up and start rioting. basically America is on a total life support. And the fact that it already has the highest prison population in the world also supports this theory. But let's see if the people agree with me

    Well, 1.8 trillion went to the secret dog assassination conspiracy program. Perhaps you're familiar?

    Ever heard of social justice? It's an expensive agenda.

    I wonder what happened five years ago that could account for increased welfare spending. Hmmmm ...

    Oh yeah, the economy ****ing cratered and millions of people lost their jobs. Jesus, some people around here have short memories.

    And Bush never existed. His legacy was thrown into the memory hole.

    I am against spending on social programs as much as the next guy, but I cannot support a government that is reliant upon others. what kind of government sets the example that it is ok to rely on others then punishes their constituents for doing the same thing. I continue to advocate cutting the deficit and social spending at the same time, meaning we spend less and less on welfare, etc at the same time that the government is relying less on other nations to pay the bills. It is only fair to expect the same from both the government and the people. It is hypocritical to say the least to hold the people to a different standard than the government.
