Do you not get to choose your religion?
Nothing against religion if you choose to follow all of it which might including having a big family and having to scrape by. Don't put that on me though when you can't do the math about what it costs to raise a child
Do you feel your taxes would be lowered if these people weren't on welfare?
Not a chance.
Did you ever have unprotected sex prior to leaving school?
Honestly, only a few times. I usually bagged it.
What happens if you never get a well paying job?
And this is where I will clarify that I am not against food stamps, solely because I don't believe in punishing a child because of the mistakes of their parents.
Here is my point: It's not as black and white as some people say. There are cases where it is clearly an abuse and that should be handled, but in some cases people can't control their financial situation or other circumstances. To make an across the board assertion just isn't going to cut it.
