When Obama took office the first time around, which is now almost 4 years ago, there were a little over 30 million people on food stamps.

There are NOW almost 50 million people on food stamps.

And we just reelected the pretty little princess to another 4 years.

What do you expect people to do live without food? That's what food stamps is for, when someone needs help. Not saying there is people out there not abusing the program. Example: Just the other day went to get some milk at the grocery, this lady in front of me (whom I know well) she was paying with a food stamp card. She and her husband drives brand new vehicles, he works in the public sector and she sets on many boards throughout the community, they wear the best and have a four bedroom home. But, yet they vote Republican. All I can say is if they believe so much in the Republican ways, why do they use entitlements that was formed by the Democrats years ago? It's because people believe that Republicans are better than others and they use the system just their party does when it's convenient for them. Things like this is what has divided this country. No matter who it is, if they need help we should help them, but not to abuse.

psst...Obama's the current President, and he's been in office for nearly four years now. When he took office there were a little more than 30 million on food stamps. Now there's almost 50 million.

It is his legacy.

Some would look for work in whatever place they could find it even in doing chores for a meal from their neighbors if necessary. Some would pick up cans along the roadside or whatever it would take to survive. Some would steal, some would turn to the churches for help. I'm sure that the handicapped and elderly would be looked after but those who are able to do something would have to learn to care for themselves.

During the great depression (not to be confused with where we are at now) soup kitchens were the answer. Whiners probably went hungry but I don't recall anyone starving to death, not saying it didn't happen.

There is no easy cookie cutter answer for your question but to just let the tax payer continue to dole out their hard earned money is not the answer for sure especially when most of it is borrowed.

What will 350 million Americans do when the govt. colapses into chaos? People better learn to take care of themselves.

The Mormon church has 30 million bushels of various grains on hand at all times for disasters so it might be wise to find a good Mormon neighbor who can give some advice. The Mormon church has set up a nation wide Ham radio network to make sure food and other supplies can be directed to where they are needed from welfare square in Salt Lake City, Utah. They bought me all the equipment I needed to set up a base station in my house so I can assist in an emergency.

Here's a solution if you get grub stamps it should be fixed where you can't buy cokes twinkies candy . It should be used to only buy foods to cook with. And also if someone is caught selling the food stamp card they should be cut off however they are not. This should also apply to those getting tncare. I know for a fact people who gets. indicted for tncare fraud do not cut off because it violates their civil rights

110,000,000 million peopel are on Federal Welfare. This benefits politicians who hold the goodie-bag and corporations (mostly banking) who have realized how to profit from the poor.

Here is the solution, linked below, build an economy so strong that the People will scoff at the idea of government dependence.
