In fairness, we also fund independency, as gigantic handouts and preferences are given to giant banks, investment funds, and well connected corporations in general. The government literally gives any major bank that asks an unlimited amount of money at 0 percent interest any time they want. You think there is a program that generous for anybody else? The government is simply a giant feeding trough for everybody who is inclined to use it. And ouir joke of a two party system splits up the blame game, the Repubs denounce the poor for taking welfare, the Dems denounce the rich for taking the breaks. Anybody who still votes is living in delusion.
