For the 999,999,999,999th time, as long as the folks in congress (and president) gives everything away. nothing is going to change. As long as these recipients vote, they're going to keep the status quo over the ones who advocate working for a living everytime. How to change? If you get that one figured out, you are no doubt the smartest human being that ever lived. I personally advocate the folks on the public dole losing their vote until they're off the public trough. Once off, the vote is returned....working not necessary, only off the public dole. Without bloodshed, I can't think of another way (probably why I'm sitting here writing a note) and I don't want any bloodshed: if possible.
