You know... I've gotta be honest. When I read your first paragraph, I thought I was going to be irate and want to rip your head off, but I think, if I understand you correctly, that you have a valid point. Often our government tries so hard to protect and help the poor people, that they just make the problem worse. I'm continually in a debate with myself as to how much the government should in fact help the poor and those less fortunate.
