Franksargent says: Businesspeople acting like criminals, nope, never heard of that happening!
Jubelum says: People on endless welfare programs cheating the system and stealing from their fellow citizens, nope, never heard of that happening!
Obviously both of these things do happen, which is why we need systems in place to stop both of them. That's why we don't want an extremist government from either side, libertarian or liberal. We need laws to regulate business practices so that corporations don't fix prices or hire six-year-olds. We also need to make sure that our welfare program isn't a way of life, but merely a hand up to those who really need help.
We have to have moderation. No society composed of extremes will ever work. That's why a frothing maniac like Ron Paul will never get elected. Abolishing welfare? Abolishing the income tax? I'm sorry, but that's just stupid. Sometimes people need some help, because they just don't have the ability to survive on their own. That's the purpose of welfare. To help people get back on their feet. Maybe some people abuse it, but getting rid of it isn't the answer. Extremist solutions like this are just silly.
