Do you believe that poor people in America are poor because of the negative lifestyle & life choices they make? Do you further contend that there is a culture of poverty in America in which the American poor believe in immediate gratification w/o any thought of the future which they deem to be unimportant? Do you believe that the poor in America have myriad opportunities to better themselves but elect to blame society instead of taking & being responsible for themselves?
