What are you doing here?

Government is suppose to treat us all equally. Not do everything to make us all equal.

Charity only works if society is charitable.

Hence, we have government welfare.

Why is it not distributed evenly and equally, if government is to treat us all equally.

I don't know, but charity is not a substitute for welfare in this country. Too much poverty and not enough generosity.

self-centeredness I see so many right-wingers adopt as their religious dogma.
I am probably the least self centered person you would ever know and far from right wing, I just don't see welfare as a way of life, it should be used as intended, a bridge to a self sufficient life. Paying women to have more babies does not help them, it just makes them continually dependent on the Uncle.

I think the better question is why are all these kids running around a store at 11pm on a Wednesday night. (which makes me wonder just how truthful your story is).

Exactly.

I could afford to be more generous if the government didn't take 20 cents of every dollar I earn.
