We are on this earth not only to make for ourselves the best life possible, but to enrich others lives as well. It’s not acceptable to gather your treasure and leave others along the road. It’s just not. Our governments (and we the people) have a responsibility to feed each other, at the very least.
There are those among us who will abuse the generosity of the public, and take what they don’t need. We have ways of fixing that already. I don’t concern myself with them, and neither should anyone else. We should be concerning ourselves with the tens, if not hundreds of millions of people who through no fault of their own, are finding it hard to exist without assistance. And we should assist them. Period.
Did you know that on Nov. 2 of this year, a working family of 4 that qualifies for “food stamps”, will receive approximately $3.37 per person per day? That’s about $410 month. A small price to pay (even to thousands of frauds) to make sure no innocent child, senior citizen, or disabled neighbor goes hungry.
