Or free handouts from a government that will use that leverage to make me a voting plantation slave.
People who refuse handouts are often accused of "pride". In reality, is it a simple matter of vested self-interest. A free man owes allegiance only to himself and those HE CHOOSES to pledge himself to.
Every recipient of government handouts owes the government their life...a fact they are reminded of daily by that same government.
More Alinsky hypocrisy from you, I see. Always accusing others of what you are actually guilty of. It ain't flying.
Our mascot is the elephant...we NEVER forget...and we forgive almost as frequently. That's because forgiveness is predicated on repentance, and you are a bunch of unrepentant idiots.
Prove it! The way I heard it, the "poor houses" were funded privately.
Allow me to translate for you:
"It redistributes wealth from the producing people of the country and gives it to the worthless liberal idiots who never run out of new and inventive ways to squander it (at best) or actively restrict the freedoms of the producers and make everyone's live a little more miserable (at worst)"
You've got a lot of nerve blaming YOUR "social programs" on conservatives! You are such a lying POS.
A valid argument is what you're missing. All you've got is irrational emotional appeal...and it ain't flying.
Hard to believe that Christians would ever buy in to such a silly notion, isn't it? That's what happens when you let your churches be infiltrated by commie sappers. You end up with a poisoned mind and empty pockets.
I just saw a report yesterday that says the US poverty level is the same level it was during LBJ's administration!
So much for throwing money at the poor! We've been doing it almost 50 years and haven't gained one inch.
Occupier might be insane. C-woof just seems really stupid and gullible.
