Yes. Nothing wrong with soup kitchens
No. Freebies are great
"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
2. Most states don't give money to people without children (any welfare $ is for children).
3. Most states confine welfare $ to people with children for a limited period of time, and usually require some form of job training or something along those lines.
Because some people abuse the system is no reason to deny others who are truly needy the assistance they need during hard times. That's the kind of country we are: a civilized one.
If you want to take away welfare from someone who doesn't need it, take away corporate welfare. Exxon sometimes pays no income taxes in America at all. Exxon doesn't need that welfare. And we the taxpayers spend a lot more on corporate welfare than helping the homeless.
I don't think corporations should pay any tax at all, because they're not people.
Exxon is an entity, and a very good one. It employs nearly 100,000 people, and it provides much-needed oil and gas to the world, which we all know we need.
If you took away the tax on Exxon, how many more people could they afford to hire? Probably a lot... because the managers could run the company more efficiently without cash being siphoned off by the government.
I would rather not have welfare. Who are we kidding, our gov't isn't going to reform welfare to any semblance of an efficient program meant to stimulate personal progress. Besides, how many people starved to death before welfare? You know what people did do? They loved each other much more because they had to rely on one another. If you were in need, you received a loving gift, not a cold, faceless entitlement.

Lets end warfare.
How about ending unwinnable wars that drag on forever , Iraq , Afghanistan ring a bell? OR BETTER YET don't start stupid wars in the 1st place..
Im glad the War in Iraq was a HUGE FAILURE, oh yea throw Nam in there also, simply because i said it would and you Gopers wanted the ACA to fail, American Imperialism not so mighty anymore ay??
I thought all of you Repugs, Tea Maggots were against BIG GOVERNMENT?? if so why do you want to stop gay marriage, Women from getting abortions, starting wars you can't win, throwing folks in prison for Weed??
How about ending Corporate welfare??? the reason so many are on welfare is because of **** companies like Wal Fart that pay beans, folks go to the safety net mostly from the working poor to subsidize income just to live..
Go ahead end welfare and see what happens?? most of the folks who receive welfare are white Women, of course many in the redneck states like Mississippi, that means more white babies, kids will die from sickness, starvation, mal nutrition, i don't have a problem with that, as long as you are all for it, your just killing more future Repug voters..
Funny how voters in the South have been voting for the Repukes for 40+ years now, and your STILL the poorest part of the country, with the shortest life span, and most lack insurance because your states didn't expand medicaid..
Glad to see you all are still voting for the same slime that is killing you off..
"I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance." William Faulkner
