I think it makes sense for people who abuse the system and stay on welfare for extended periods of time, but you all are missing the reason that the welfare system was put into place. It's a form of social security that people are only supposed to be using when they're in dire straits. If a successful lawyer made some bad decisions, gets busted by the IRS, loses all his savings and becomes disbarred, but is a coke head, should he be thrown on the streets? He's still a productive member of society, albeit a member who's choices not everyone agrees with. Regardless, he's worth more to society as a whole by practicing law or doing something productive, rather than sifting through garbage cans in an alleyway.
You all are viewing this from the perspective of inner city welfare abusers who are busting out children in order to get a paycheck to buy some crack. These people do not deserve to be on welfare, but the fact of the matter is that inner city minorities don't make up the majority of our welfare system, the majority comes from poor white people in the south/southeast. So while addressing this problem might save the government some money, a hard and fast, "if you piss hot, you're outta luck" rule will only serve to hurt the country and there are better ways of dealing with our welfare problem.
Now for those of you who think I'm a Liberal tree hugging human rights loving POS (i.e. Meech), I'm gonna give you my perspective on how to eliminate our welfare system as well as another problem plaguing out country.
Forced birth control. Every girl who goes through puberty in the United States should have an IUD (Inter-uterine device, a simple but effective birth control) put in her. The IUD is paid for by the government and no welfare will be paid to the child's family until the device has been implanted. If the child gets married, the device can be removed after one year of marriage so long as the couple is able to prove financial responsibility. After the child hits age 21, the device can be removed also if financial responsibility is proved.
Women hate this concept of mine, they think I'm crazy, but drastic steps will be required to get this country out of our welfare state. Eliminate the children of welfare abusers and you eliminate the next generation of welfare abusers, 20 years, problem solved.
Now who thinks I sound like a fascist?
