Finally, Some Truth from Bob Beckel - Liberals Created Dependent Society with Well Meaning Social Programs

Well, bless his heart for finally admitting it.  I have never said that there wasn't a certain amount of sincerity in the creation of these programs, but that doesn't change the fact that overall, they are a failure.  They don't help the people.  It just keeps them in or near poverty.  For instance, the reason that people who have been on food stamps for a long period of time have difficulty getting off is the fact that if you make even $5 more than the very low amount it takes to qualify they cut you off completely.  That $5 extra isn't going to make you able to afford to buy your own food on a permanent basis, but you become disqualified.  So what is the answer?  Don't make that $5.  It keeps people living off the taxpayer's dime instead of giving them a helping hand.  It isn't easy to get out poverty, but it can be done.  The government must stop putting people in the position that welfare programs are the only alternative.

Forget neo-con Mark Levin and his boring re-tread book Ameritopia (with its fake controversy). Instead read a real banned book “America Deceived II” by a real outlaw author.
Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely censored:

welfare programs are not the only alternative and never has been. its just that the stigma of being on welfare has been eliminated from it that makes it a first alternative these days.
