To be truly free as our ancestors understood it. We would never take welfare if it were possible to avoid it! We would pay our own bills and demand some sort of work for any wealth we obtained! Medi-care, Obama Care would never have been heard of. We now have about five generations whom seriously believe they are owed a living! For instance, I went to College and paid my own way. I didn't owe a cent when I finished, and I finished with six children and a wife whom I supported. My first house I bought I had to pay one third down before I would be given a mortgage! I have purchased most of my vehicles for cash as well. My older children wore clothes from other people or from thrift stores and their Christmas often came from them.
