Capitalism in all its glory is a competition.

Some people will do very well, a lot of folks will do okay, and some folks will just do terrible.

This is unavoidable. This is the nature of competition. Everybody can't win. So we can shrug and say **** it, and suffer what will I'm sure will be nothing but happy, sunny side effects of a poverty class with third world finances, or we can provide some sort of safety net so that people aren't living in squalor.

That does mean some will abuse the system. Unavoidable. But when a basic life of work provides you a better quality of life than a life of living off food stamps, the light inside us will almost always guide us to productivity.

liberal logic right there... it's not a 50/50, win/lose thing. Everybody CAN win, it's just that some win more than others. It's not just one battle that's fought, it's thousands of battles daily!

Just like defense, education, or anything else public.

The Libertarian candidate in the last Presidential election spoke of a "consumption tax" to replace income tax. So you keep what you earn and public works are regularly funded by business transactions. It then becomes important for the state to encourage a robust economy that benefits producers.

There is also the option of voting on specific taxes via county or state to fund public works.
