America is becoming more of a socialist country with each passing moment. We were once a country where all able bodied people pulled THEIR weight and did not expect another person to carry them. People are working and having their tax monies go to those who oftentimes refuse to pull their weight, expecting others to support them. There is multi-generational welfare and Obamacare, what's next? There are those misguided people who emphasize more equitable income distribution. No one should have to support and take care off an able-bodied adult.

You've said some sensible things. I don't advocate immediate cessation of things like food stamps (as you said many children depend on them), but rather a steady transition from forced contribution to charitable giving and more strict standards.
Caleb, in THIS instance we are in TOTAL agreement. This society has to make a gradual transition to more charitable giving and more strict standards regarding welfare programs. Also this society must institute work programs for those on public aid.
