Yeah I think all taxes are stealing. Even if we did give the middle class a tax cut and only taxed the rich that's discriminating. If someone goes to school for many years to get a high paying job vs someone who didn't do as much schooling and only desired to be middle class. The principle behind taking the highly educated persons money is WRONG. They did all that extra work for their money! & The US gov. has failed to handle our tax dollars properly (IMO). Taxing is not the answer kicking people out of the white house who overspend is.
I think a lot of people put themselves in dire circumstances and end up on welfare. I do not think the majority of people on welfare are responsible. If you can't support yourself should you really be having unprotected sex and getting pregnant? No it doesn't make any sense, you do not have money to take care of the child. Life is hard it takes 1. using your brain to make good choices & 2. making the right choice is almost always the harder one. I am a big believer in personal responsibility. If you squander away all your money on bullshit, or decide to do drugs and not better yourself in any way, why should you be entitled to welfare programs? You shouldn't you didn't do anything to deserve them. I do not feel sorry for people who refuse to help themselves and they should not be entitled to my money or anyone elses. Charity & Non-Profit groups should be helping degenerates, not the government. The government is not your mom, dad, or big brother. It is not your pimp, so quit having babies just to make money off of uncle sam. That just makes you a bitch on a puppymill.
It all comes back to this; if people are rewarded for negative behavior they will continue to do it. We are rewarding people to be leeches of of tax dollars. If we stop rewarding them, they will stop doing it.
