We do, and that isn't a bad thing.
That is the point of a government. Its something for everyone to lean onto, and give to so everyone leaning against it can benefit. Its a focus for our resources and wealth, its meant to help everyone.
No it's not a bad thing all citizens of any country need the Government for many reason's Protection, Medical help, food (industries that produce large amounts of food) and much more
Um it would make more sense if my comment was before yours
Oh well. I don't understand the arguments against welfare in the idea of government. But I'm glad we agree on how necessary government is.
Sometimes I'm afraid that's the anarchist of America might have a gathering and take down the government
I'm a bit of a revolutionary leftist, but anarchy is where I draw the line in terms of radical ideas. I think we need government.
The government will not protect you. That is your job.
No.. It is the governments job to ensure you live in a safe environment.
Tonius, its very hard to " Succeed " in the united states by yourself. If not impossible for low wealth minorities. First of all, even the basic education system we have is stacked against them. Schools are funded based off of property tax, the richer a town a school is in; the more funding it gets. 2nd, college education requires good grades ( Harder to do in a badly funded school ) enough money to go to college ( Or risk living a life of debt dealing with college loan debt, you cannot declare bankruptcy against college debt. ) then FIND or MAKE a job in which you can " Succeed ".
A government SHOULD be providing a safe environment for its citizens to live in. But it also should be caring for you, that is what it is for! That is what it is meant for! What is wrong with National Healthcare? What is wrong with free higher education? Its paid for by taxes, but it pays itself off because education is the best investment for the future.
That question carries the implicit assumption that minorities have become dependent on the govt. That's a false assumption. Go find out the truth for yourself.
A lot of minorities that fail come from terrible households. Welfare rats I would call their family. If a minority fails, it's the fault of their environment where they grew up. The environment that they grow up in is affected by this media and this government claiming that they're entitled to things and that they CANNOT succeed, which is very untrue.
From my own personal experience growing up around Baltimore.. Minorities have been more dependent than independent on government. Just for the record, why in the world would you want to be dependent upon your government and settle for less?
