Capitalism is the way to live prosperous? Greece went bankrupt because of capitalism. Spain went bankrupt because of capitalism. The entire Euro Zone is going to collapse because of capitalism.

Capitalism creates divide, nothing more. Haves and have nots. That's a better life?

Not everyone using the public systems available to them are "leeching. Yes, leechers should be dealt with. Most people use those systems to vault back into the mediocrity of the lower middle class.

Go capitalism.!

Greece wasn't/isn't capitalistic.

I didn't call everyone a leech, but to pretend there isn't many out there abusing the system is flat out laughable.

Are you ever going to provide any actual evidence for this massive number of leeches that you keep talking about? How many are there? How much are they consuming? You want to cut all these services, but you haven't actually shown any reason to cut them, nor any rationale for how much they could be cut without essentially throwing more people out into the street than we already have.

I see plenty of people living on the street around here. They don't seem to be getting much in the way of help either. Not more than they can fit in their shopping carts or trash bags anyway. Where are you getting your info from?

I never said I wanted to cut all of it, I said fix the loop holes so people that ARE CAPABLE OF WORKING. Who refuse to can't take advantage forever.

(edit) I didn't mean you want to cut all services, but that you want to cut a variety of services. I'm asking you to provide evidence for this massive fraud that you're talking about. You keep claiming that there's so many people just living high on the hog on the backs of taxpayers. Where's your evidence? Which specific loopholes are you referring to?

I'm sorry that that idea doesn't mesh with the bleeding heart liberal utopia of the rich paying for everyone else to live. Real life doesn't work that way.

Then you have someone say that hard work doesn't get you anything. Which is another line of flatout bullshit. Stop being entitled brats and earn a life.
And this is just a bunch of non sequitur crap that has nothing to do with my question.

Do a google search for welfare fraud, look at the 1000's of cases. To pretend it happens to little that it's insignificant is silly. I've said more than a couple times in this thread I have no problem with helping people via social programs that really need it and who do their best to contribute back into the system.

I just can't stand the entitlement/PC mentality we have now in the US however. Granted since liberals pretty much run most of the public school systems at this point, I can't say I should be too surprised.
