    Crime shouldn't be up though, it should be down as a result of our massive welfare state. And you reference my link by proving my point, that crime skyrocketed regardless of the Great Society when it should've gone down. It eventually came down, but apparently not because of welfare.

    Of course it all depends on what you categorize as "crime". Crime statistics, like most statistics, only say so much.
