It’s Time to End the War on Poverty
Richard Ebeling 

*** begin quote ***

We discuss and dissect the history and the failures of the modern welfare state that, in fact, has been a cause of perpetuated poverty and permanent government-dependency through the spider’s web of “entitlement” programs and redistributive activities.

*** end quote ***

Can’t imagine an idea that has outlived its usefulness.

LBJ’s “Great Society” and the ongoing “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” has totally destroyed: the inner cities, the black family, the lives of countless minority boys and girls, as well as created generations of “welfare farmers”.

Sorry, but it’s time to change.

I suggest that “public welfare” programs be reduced 5% per year for 20 years. 

It’s going to hurt some people, but the Nation has hit rock bottom and needs to change its ways. 

Blame the folks who started us down this path and not the messenger who delivers the bad news.

No free lunch.
