Common Sense Conservatives Care About The Poor

Socialists continue to paint Conservatives as uncaring Americans that are racists.  That may play well to their PEEP's; the 47 million people on the dole; but it is just not true.  Conservatives just can't ignore the numbers,  spending more than $20 Trillion on the War on Poverty, since Roosevelt's New Deal, Johnson's Great Society and Obama's SwindleUS Plans, with expansion of Welfare and Food Stamp eligibility and duration, only to see poverty today higher than it has been in three decades.   Card talk and numbers don't lie. 

Obviously, Socialist Schemes DO NOT WORK.   Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.   60 years of Socialist programs to help the poor have done more harm than good by making them more dependent on government, rather than less.  Welfare has in fact destroyed the Black family, as 7 out of 10 Black babies are born out of wedlock into poverty.  Conservatives advocate different solutions to break the cycle of poverty and not perpetuate it.  Workfare instead of Welfare for no more than two years for able bodied Americans.   People on Welfare should be given a choice, clean up their own neighborhoods for 20 hours a week, or learn a trade for 20 hours a week.

Hopefully, most would choose to learn a trade that is marketable to finally end Welfare as we know it.   Again, we are not talking about Americans who are mentally, or physically disabled that get Disability Benefits, legitimately.   We are talking about able bodied Americans who sit home on their butts, while taking taxpayer funded Welfare and Food Stamps.   There is dignity in all work, no matter how menial the job.  There is no dignity when the able bodied are on the dole.  The negative role model is sets for children is often irreparable. 

Let's not forget that it was Conservative President Ronald Reagan who signed the Earned Income Tax Credit into law that pays the Working Poor to work rather than go on Welfare.   Lower income families get money back from the IRS often averaging $6,000 a year so that Welfare is not as attractive as a low paying job.   This program makes perfect sense provided it is administered properly by the IRS to avoid the fraud and abuse that are prevalent.  Apparently, in the last year the IRS handed out $4 Billion to people who were not qualified to receive these monies, including illegal aliens with no chance of getting it back.   Heads should roll at the IRS for this mistake; but don't count on it.   People who screw up in the Obama Administration are often promoted instead.  Go figure. 

Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty.   The teacher unions keep poor kids trapped in failing inner city public schools to benefit themselves, not these children.  Conservatives support School Vouchers to allow poor inner city parents to send their kids to private schools when public schools aren't doing the job.  Obamanistas and other Socialists in government, owned, lock, stock and barrel by the teacher's unions oppose any kind of School Choice Program.   These are the same people that often support a women's right to choose abortion; but not a woman's right to send her kids to a better school.  It is criminal. 

Socialists and Poverty Pimps that live off the misery of the poor have no interest in breaking the cycle of poverty because it is their ticket to power.  Their mission is to convince the poor that they are victims, instead of encouraging the poor to take personal responsibility for themselves.  It is really only Conservatives, interested in helping all people live the American dream, that really care about the poor in America.  Old Socialist thinking and programs have failed to end poverty in America and only made it worse.  It is time for new ideas that break the cycle of poverty.  It will not happen any other way.
