Same thing goes for unemployment; if your on the peoples dime then you should be required to take mandatory drug screening..
You'd have to do it for most job positions anyway.
If your willing or demand assistance and you allow the state to intervene in your affairs then you should be prepared to give up some privacy.
Most people pay into unemployment, it is not a freebie.

Road upkeep is paid by the state, does that allow them to regulate your hotdog intake? Force you to support (or be anti) gay marriage? Require you to join the military?

No..it is not paid for by the state. It is paid for by you and I the taxpayer.

The problem is that your taxes have not been going to "road upkeep" but to pay for ever increasingly larger entitlement programs such has described.

TARP and Stimulus funds were and are going to be paid for by you and your children and your grandchildren.
