re: Funny How Conservatives Don't Care When....
I've grown sorta fond of being free. We have a land rich in natural resources and 300 million potential slaves. If we were to melt down our weapons and assume the world would follow suit do you believe it would really happen? Or would the potential slaves become slaves to whatever motherland(s) subdivided us?
That's question 1 for you.
but not ok to spend money helping fellow citizens?
That's your definition of conservative beliefs, I've never heard it anywhere but from a brain dead lib who is afraid of the truth. Here's a quick fact, conservatives are more charitable than liberals. Charity is the true measure of a person because it isn't forced.
We have an obligation in a civilized society to support those who are physically or mentally incapable of caring for themselves.
We have an obligation to give a hand up to those who fall on hard times, short term financial help, job training if they're in a dying industry.
Government, AKA the taxpayers, doesn't have an obligation to provide a lifestyle to anyone.
We shouldn't have to make laws EBT cards can't be used in strip clubs, or casinos.
We shouldn't debate drug testing to receive benefits, it's a requirement of nearly every job today. If the left truly believes this is a hand up why the outrage when drug testing is implemented? People won't move from assistance to work if they're using drugs. And I don't like to think taxpayers are sacrificing so others can get high, do you?
I become resolute when I'm ostracized and insulted by the people who are benefiting from my labor/money. People aren't thankful for the help, they're entitled and demand what they feel they deserve. They feel those providing should have no say it what's provided, how it's used, or how long they should be helped.
Who do you think should receive help, how much and how long? What restrictions should there be on the use of the money, and drugs? Should those receiving help be required to attend training or welfare to work programs? Should they be required to work for their stipend to keep, or get, them in the habit of being punctual, following instructions and accomplishing assignments?
Those are my beliefs, help with strings attached. What are yours?
