It seems in the United States that those who make unintelligent, unthinking, & negative choices want to blame others for their dire predicament whether educationally, socioeconomically, or otherwise. Bailing out such people was exacerbated in 1964 w/the Great Society under President Johnson. Since then, welfare & other social programs abounded. Instead of helping people, many of these programs creating a dependent, entitlement mentality. These programs were the start of the increase of taxes on the middle class. These welfare & social programs created an entitlement mentality which resonates among some people to this day. What happened to people being accountable & taking responsibility for their actions? America has progressed from a CAN DO country to a GIMME, RESCUE ME, & BLAME OTHERS country. Now, there are people among us who believe in income redistribution, basic income, free health care, &/even free housing. They vehemently contend that there can be MORE free or low cost services if there was equal distribution of income. They believe in unlimited social programs while simultaneously believing that there should be a limit on income. What is HAPPENING here? Do you believe that the Great Society instituted by President Johnson caused a society owes me mentality? What is wrong w/EARNING one's way based upon meritocracy? Has WORK become a bad word?
GM , People here accuse me of conservative bias , of staunch unchanging conservative views , for a bitter dislike of liberal , alt- liberal a socialistic views , They are right ! And mostly for all of the above reasons that you noted . America is in decline becausee of becoming a socialist democracy ! Fact .
Funny story , Today I was listening to a radio host talking about a poor guy who buys lottery tickets weekly , when he scratches them off he either recognises a winner or he throws them on the floor of his truck to later re-check them and then to dispose of .
When he was cleaning up the floor of his truck he rechecked his tickets ! Boom he has won one million dollar winner and decides after talking to his wife to take the "one time " payoff --long story short --he accepted his check for $435,000 dollars of a one million dollar winning !
Where did the $ 565 ,000 dollars go ? Charity ?

Aside from the impact on people who fail in life and wouldn't have a government to help them out, are their any negatives to a society that offers no social programs (in my thoughts this would be except disability)?
