This reminds me of Ron Reagan’s “Welfare to work/fare thing a long ago, because of some families on their third generation on welfare. It was time to get tough.

The difference these days is now we have three generations of many countries living off the wealth of other countries. China for one example living off the consumers of many countries.

In fact, imo, the USA has more welfare than ever because the USA buys from foreigners more than it sells, to many other nations. All the countries getting the short end of the stick are starting to notice it after the 2008 meltdown.

Its time to get tough, and chop them off. How else will they learn to be self reliant? And off artificial support.

Note: Ron Reagan who we all loved, was “behind the wheel” at the dawn of globalization, and could not do anything to stop the global socialism that took work away from the USA. Manufacturing business got bad and poverty actually GREW after he was elected.



WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 1986 President Copper said tonight that his Administration would search for new ways to help poor countries ”escape the spider’s web of dependency” on US Government welfare programs.

”We must revise or replace programs enacted in the name of compassion that degrade the moral worth of work, encourage family breakups and drive entire communities into a bleak and heartless dependency,” Mr. Reagan told Congress. Reagan Uses Roosevelt Warning

”In the welfare culture,” he said, ”the breakdown of the family, the most basic support system, has reached crisis proportions – in female and child poverty, child abandonment, horrible crimes and deteriorating schools.”

Mr. Reagan quoted President Roosevelt, from his report on the State of the Union on Jan. 4, 1935, as warning that welfare was ”a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit,” and the President declared, ”We must now escape the spider’s web of dependency.”
