It feels good in the short-term when government gives you something for free, but over time this wealth redistribution will rot your economy from the inside out. Massive debts financed by an inflationary central bank will rot your economy from the inside out.

What the poor need is more CAPITALISM. You don't hear that too often on CNN. But unfortunately it won't be easy. A return to capitalism would cause massive pain in our economy at first, as we allow all the government-induced mal-investments to be purged from the system. It could take a year, 2 years, I'd guess even more. But that pain is coming ANYWAY, people. The only question is, what's waiting on the other side? A free economy and prosperity? Or an even more fascistic economy, with even more government controls, and the end of America's golden age? That's the choice we are facing. That's the precipice we are approaching.

And by the way, if the Republicans had any balls, THIS is what they'd be saying to the American people. Truth and honesty about the economy instead of trying to be a lighter version of the Democrats.

Best way to help the poor would be to deregulate professional liscensing and other barriers to entry for possible small business entreprenuers. It is probably the most harmful regulation for the poor and lower middle class but its hardly ever talked about or reported on because its an issue of state law for the most part.
