Millions On Welfare & Food Stamps

There are about 350 million people living in America depending on how illegal aliens are counted or not counted.  Though we supposedly have a 3.4% unemployment rate, which technically is a full employment economy, as best this Blogger can tell from the Internet, there are 41 million people on Food Stamps (SNAP) and 65 million people on Welfare of all colors and races.  No doubt many of these people are on Medicaid, free government health care and various other entitlements like free breakfast and lunch for poor kids in public schools, free cell phones, energy supplements, free college tuition in some states etc.  The list of entitlements goes on and on.  There is also the earned income tax credit for the working poor.  They get money from the government for working instead of going on Welfare rather than paying income taxes.  

After spending trillions of dollars to eliminate poverty since the Socialist New Deal and Great Society programs, we have more people dependent on government today in a full employment economy than ever before.  The reason this is the case is because public schools do not graduate the majority of children in our country with any marketable job skills.  Half the kids in the United States cannot read or do math at grade level.  Obviously, most of these children again of all colors end up in the permanent Welfare class living off government handouts because they are so poorly educated that they can't do anything of meaningful value.  

Add to this that 7 out of 10 Black kids, 5 out of 10 Hispanic kids and 4 out of 10 White kids are born out of wedlock to single mother with no dad in the home.  While life is preferable to abortion murder, the end result is that most of these kids will be born into poverty.  Socialist Fascists (AKA) Democrats have No incentive to eliminate poverty because the people on Welfare and Food Stamps are their voters.  They need these poor people on the plantation tethered to big government to win elections.  And for Democrats it is all about retaining their power so they can continue feeding at the trough, while millions go hungry and struggle to live a decent life.  

There is something very wrong with this picture.  We must break the cycle of poverty.  More government entitlements only add to this long nightmare.  We must have School Choice so that poor and middle class parents can get their kids out of failing public schools to get their children a good education.  We spend about a trillion dollars a year at all levels of government on failing public schools only to experience lousy academic achievement.  This must stop if we are ever going to eliminate poverty in the United States.
