I'd love to be able to opt out on a PERSONAL level on every one of these various new welfare programs. Then let them see how far the bleeding hearts are willing to carry society.
I also believe that if you aren't paying into the system you shouldn't get a fucking vote. Make voting day coincide with tax day and if the magical formula adds up the $10 you made this year and turns it into a $2000 return, sorry you don't get a vote this year.
This country is so fucked up.
The problem is the individual has zero power, the masses do. And for quite some time that mass has been growing into nothing but a bunch of lazy, worthless shit looking for a hand out because it's easier than actually working for it.

Not helping someone in need and is truly helpless is one thing, giving a handout to a lazy mf'er that is perfectly capable (mentally, physically, etc) of earning that shit on their own is another....
