They do choose to be poor is the problem and even Liberal Demcorat FDR said that people will mooch and prefer living on the Dole which is what he call Welfare and that it would become a habit which he was right that people prefer to mooch off of others if they are allowed to do so which Detroit has proven FDR right and why Detroit is bankrupt since the entitlement society or welfare society doesnt pay taxes and when the money runs out look what happens which Detroit also proved that too and the Liberals want to turn the whole US into Detroit.<quoted text>
I did not comment about whether or not I have first-hand familiarity with Detroit, yet you assume I've never been there — just as you assume that poor people safe poor by choice, unwilling to work, have little self-respect and want to mooch from others.You begin with that pessimistic assumption about the poor you end with it as your conclusion, with nothing happening in the middle. Your mind is made up.

Early in 1935 Roosevelt argued, "We must preserve not only the bodies of the unemployed from destitution but also their self-respect, their self-reliance and courage and determination."
