The Dems use the SNAP program as a way to recruit voters for life. These people will always vote Dem no matter what. They will always prefer Santa to the person that tells them they have to make their own way in the world. We will continue merrily along this path until this shaky house of cards falls down. When we have our debt crisis it will make Europe's look like a birthday party. We are being warned that we cannot continue this way and the majority of the country is refusing to acknowledge this simple fact. We have maybe five or ten years at the very most before this country completely implodes. Europe ignored their warnings and look where they are. That is where we will be. The last election is proof.
