Dear Heather, Welfare is the bait on the hook of totalitarianism. Can you not see that this policy you are recommending is a form of totalitarian thinking? Nothing could be further from traditional American conservative thought. What people choose to eat, do, wear, think, say is their own business, not yours, and not the government's. Welfare is a very bad and destructive idea, but if it is going to be doled out, at least leave individuals free to spend it as they wish. That this idea should emanate from a Republican is shocking enough. That you, a presumable conservative, support it, is nothing short of astonishing. And terribly ominous.

Completely wrong. If you ask me for money, I have a RIGHT to insist you use it for the purpose that I provided it for.

Otherwise, fend for yourself, comrade.

No, it shouldn't be available to be spent as they wish. When I ask the bank for a loan, they have every right to enquire into how I plan to spend it and follow up to make sure I spent it as intended. Same principle.
