Who is not thinking is you. The policies you advocate encourage and incentive the very behavior that your heart cries out against and bleeds for. You support policies that sentence the people your heart bleeds for to the very fate you cry out against. You encourage it. The irony...<quoted text>No idjit, most republicans are not SAYING poor people should starve. They are not thinking things through. They are giving no thought to cause and effect, just reacting like you are, without considering the consequences. What do you think the consequences of cutting the minimum AND welfare would be? Good all around or what? A real wake up call for the poors to get them off their butts and into college tuition payments so they can be somebody?
Take your time....
Me thinks it would provide an incentive to make better choices in the first place and yes motivate people to improve. Necessity is the mother of invention.
There are lots of people who are happy to just get buy in life, especially when someone else is footing the bill and improvement would take more effort than they want to exert.
Me, I have no problem with cause and effect. Stick your hand in a bear trap, lose an arm, and I say you are an effing idiot ... what did you expect idiot. Have kids while asking people if they want fries with that and while you can barely take care of yourself and I say you are an effing idiot. You, in contrast say they are innocent victims of society and deserve a white picket fence.
You don't believe in personal responsibility. I don't believe in enablement. The same problems that exist on an individual level when you enable poor decision making also exist on a national level when you do the same. Liberals ignore this and think that if you do it on a national level and enable poor decision making, you'll get a different result. It defies logic and common sense.
