Should we end welfare and just create work-fare? That is make people earn their money via working for the governent by cleaning streets, parks, etc?

Work-Fare is no different than what Roosevelt did during the great depression or what Obama did more recently with the stimulus. Neither of these programs actually worked because the government has to take from job creators to fund "work-fare"
Yes, but with work-fare, they would at least be working. Maybe there is a giant military footprint around the world, but I am in favor of a strong military as I want strong locks on my doors. This is why no country has had a frontal assault on us.
Hmmm... I just can't agree with your view on what constitutes a strong military. Having military bases all over the world does not equal more safety at home. When you lock your door, I would assume it is your own, not a house across town
Good points, @Mr. Tindle. We don't need bases around the world and soldiers fighting Corporate wars of greed to protect America. In fact, those wars of meddling make things worse.
I see your point @Mr.Tindle, but how long after the house across the street is broken into before it will be yours? And lone77star, corporate greed? Good or bad, business is the backbone of the country.
Credence2: I agree with you on this. Yes, we should definitely help those less fortunate than ourselves. Thanks,
During the day, I see three people in wheelchairs begging for money. Within a mile, there are two sightless people working in the front office of two companies. What's the difference? Attitude!
