    LEACHES ON THE RISE. The return of the welfare state. This is how the government takes complete control of your lives, your freedom, your rights, your will. LOSERS on the rise

    One major reason so many people are receiving food stamps, is because our American Government uses them to bait illegal aliens to come to America. The issue you should be checking out, is the North American Union … our Government’s ultimate goal.

    All we’d have to do to put America back on track, if that were our Government’s ‘real’ goal, would be to follow our Constitution and repeal, NAFTA, CAFTA, the SPP, etc. and so on. … ie: Bring our jobs home. And while we’re at it, we should bring our troops home,too … not to mention, we should cut off Foreign Aid … there are so many ways we could successfully restore America … IF, that were the goal.

    Our America Government is intentionally erasing our borders. I wish people would wake up and realize just how close we are to losing our Sovereign Identity. We need to clean house, before it is too late. Once we lose our borders, we lose what is left of our Constitution, along with what few rights we have to fight back with. Is is any wonder our Government has been trying so hard to disarm the American Citizens? God help us all, the day we give up our right to bear arms.

    Bet if we got back to the cheese, flour, cornmeal, beans handouts the usage would fall dramatically.
    Also use food stamps again. I am not out to demean anyone in need. I am out to take the “easy button” out of the program. PS….notice how the Dems won’t separate the program from the farm bill, that way they can keep it going by “supporting” the farm bill and make it look like Repubs are against the farmer! (PS… Know how to starve a farmer to death? Nail his mailbox shut!)

    THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS “FOOD STAMPS.”
    The government has decided to remove the stigma of producing coupons that can be exchanged for food. Now, the welfare PARASITES (yes, I did mean to say “parasites”) get little credit cards that can be used for anything they want–either directly, or indirectly.
    I am a chartitable man, I enjoy helping those who need help, but I do NOT believe it is my responsibility to support those who have never worked or ever shall work. There are now FIVE generations who are on welfare and FOUR of those generations were BORN into welfare. They have never worked and they have NO intention of EVER working! To these, I say ENOUGH! “He who does not work, neither shall he eat.”
