That's just my point of view but if a country such as the US has a good economy, then social programs like food stamps will restrict the benefits of those not on food stamps.
I'm independent and impartial by the way. So no, I'm not an offended conservative trying to argue. I am just stating my own observations.
I want to see people who TRULY need them to get them.
If you are given money, you put it to "work"!
Makes you wonder who really follows the teachings of Jesus Christ and who is going to be saved on judgement day?
It's been a few years since I've been out of my Catholic High School but I believe it was Jesus who said, "Treat others as you would like to be treated."
Jesus was a true capitalist - anyone who says otherwise is a filthy liar who hates freedom and apple pie.
And Jesus went into the temple, and smited the crap out of the moneylenders and them that bought and sold, casting them out and saying unto them, "It is written, my Father's house shall be called the house of prayer, but thee hath made it a den of thieves!"
And they said unto him, "But master, we exercise only our free market rights, as taught to us by thine prophet Ayn Rand!"
And Jesus laughed, "I kid thee. Nay, I smote the crap out of thee because thou hast broken my golden rule - thou hast raised taxes on thy lending, and thus hast thou angered the Lord."
And Jesus sat at the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. And there came a certain widow, and she threw in two mites, which makes a farthing.
And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, "Verily I say unto you, that this widow is a freeloader. The rich 1% hath given more this evening than a million widows giveth in all the years of their lives."
And they did laugh heartily at the impoverished, for the poor are shameful in their culture of dependence, and communist heathens partaketh not of American apple pie.
