Should taxes be spent on welfare?

Carnajusa
HaileyL

Basically money that people work for is going to people who don't work and allowing them to live jobless lives. It is an extreme waste of money and doesn't strengthen our economy it only cripples it.

This would insure everyone gets a job and not have homeless struggle for money....

Communism is Fascistic in Principle

Ameliamk1

One of the most common arguments from that camp is to say that Communism, despite its despotic history, is a free system if implemented "correctly". So here is my contention: by it's very tenants, Communism demands and indeed requires the implementation of either martial law or dictatorship. To accept the Con position, my opponent must support the opposite position. Important Terms: Communism: My...
