You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
Direct aid/assistance is a "No-No" for most Republicans assuming such aid/assistance would come at the government's expense. The guiding philosophy here is "you knew the risk, now settle the matter on your own." And that applies to just about everything from home mortgages, job loss (unemployment compensation), health care coverage, student loan debt...you name it and if the fed has to (or is encouraged to) help "you" financially to get out of or through a given situation, you can all but forget about it.
Of course, there's another face to conservatism and that's charitable given through non-profit donations or philanthropy. Problem with both is not all charity reaches those in need and not all philanthropist efforts pan out. And so we're often times left with people who don't get reached. Not everyone hears about the non-profit organization that holds a food or clothing drive and even if they did, are the donations being handed out in your neighborhood? Or do you have to travel 50 miles away to get to it? And while philanthropy is suppose to be a means towards job creation, most Republicans would rather provide tax cuts, deductions or credits as incentives for job growth.
While I can agree with the above as solutions for everyday problems, I can't get behind such an attitude in times of crisis. When the greater society needs help, the only entity that can reach the largest amount of people in the shortest amount of time is government. It may not do everything well, but government should always be their when the country (or segments thereof) are in urgent need.

Over and above all that, even if you did a halfway decent job of regulating it, capitalism by its intrinsic nature produces distortions in wealth distributions that lead to the wealthy getting more wealth and more power, at the expense of those who are not. Unless they use that power wisely, which they will not because of greed, there will be all kinds of problems.
Therefore, I don't know sometimes, although I hate to come to that conclusion, perhaps a socialist model is better for human society. Just speculating.
No. Republicans are for helping those who NEED help and ONLY those who need help. The fact is for things such as the free college education nothing is free somewhere we PAY for that.
Average penis size study results confirm racial stereotypesRichard Lynn, emeritus professor of psychology at Ulster University carried out the research, which is published in the scientific journal Personality and Individual Differences.
113 nationalities were included in a study of average penis lengths.
In the penis size league tables the Daily Mail reports that men from The Republic of the Congo take top position with a porn star like 7.1 inches, with the Ecuadorians, Ghanaians and Columbians not far behind with 7 inches, 6.8 inches and 6.7 inches respectively.
The average for the African continent as a whole is a whopping 6.3 inches.
The Icelanders come top of the Europeans with 6.5 inches.
The Germans are Mr European average with 5.7 inches.
The Brits come out above the French, beating the more traditional country of love and romance, by a full 0.2 inches.
The Brits also beat the Australians (5.2in), Americans (5.1in) and Irish (5in).
At the other end of the table, North and South Korea measure in at 3.8 inches. India and Thailand are only slightly bigger at 4 inches.
The overall average for north-east Asians was the lowest at 4.2 inches.
Having said that, I don't dispute that terminating unemployment insurance might make someone more desperate to find a job. Therefore a displaced aerospace engineer might accept a job a Burger King if that is all he can find. But even that might not be available. So, the point is this, having a suitable job causes people to get off of unemployment insurance. Not only that, what they pay is ridiculous. I know I could not meet my expenses with the maximum of what they pay. Perhaps some could and maybe as a result they will milk it out, but I know I could not.
