Safety Net, or Trap

Somewhere on the way to 50% of the population on the public dole, it ceases to be a safety net and becomes a trap, a way of life, a government boot on the neck of the people.

Depending on Dependency
"The theme that most seemed to rouse the enthusiasm of delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte was that we are all responsible for one another — and that Republicans don't want to help the poor, the sick and the helpless. All of us should be on guard against beliefs that flatter ourselves. At the very least, we should check such beliefs against facts. Yet the notion that people who prefer economic decisions to be made by individuals in the market are not as compassionate as people who prefer those decisions to be made collectively by politicians is seldom even thought of as a belief that should be checked against facts."

"Helping those who have been struck by unforeseeable misfortunes is fundamentally different from making dependency a way of life. Although the big word on the left is 'compassion,' the big agenda on the left is dependency. The more people who are dependent on government handouts, the more votes the left can depend on for an ever-expanding welfare state."
God brought Israel, mostly kicking and screaming, out of Egypt, out of an oppressive government, to freedom. Our Founding Fathers wanted to recreate that same freedom for America as much as possible and it is unique in the world and to be highly prized, and yet... Why do people always want to go back?????

People want to be free but they don't want other people to be free.
