The conservative solution to poverty is self-reliance and passing on the work ethic, lunkhead. That's how the VAST majority of people get along reasonably well financially in this country and have for centuries. Conservatives have no problem with providing private, voluntary charity for the disabled and children whose parents and guardians can't or won't support them (a pretty small number, actually). What we insist on, however, is that it be called CHARITY and not deemed an entitlement, to which everyone is entitled forever.
