Taxpayer-funded subsidies are hard to kill

Not all subsidies need to be killed. One of the ways forward could be to be selective in subsidies.

Government laws lead to more crime. If only murder and theft were illegal, obeying the law would be easy, but no one respects the law when everything is illegal.
Most of the problems of today would be solved by embracing what worked in the past.
People were born in the past without birth certificates.
People could travel without passports.
People can learn how to drive without driver licenses.
Business that don’t have business licenses will go bankrupt if they provide bad service.
People won’t starve if they don’t have food stamps.
People can find cheap doctors in the world without Obamacare.
People won’t have a vested interest in driving dangerously if there are no liability insurance laws.
Would crime rise if everything was legal?
Why do you need the government? Can’t you talk to people who bother you? Could you sue someone? Could you just move away?
A free country that went to war with a evil dictatorship should not become a police state. Thieves cannot take the moral high ground and criticize robbers.
The USA is an immoral bankrupt warmongering police state now.
Americans have learned nothing from history.
Americans have no rights anymore and the US is no longer a democracy.
Americans think every problem should be solved by decree and force now, but every solution causes another problem.
Americans think the government is made up of holy men. Americans think anyone becomes a saint when they wear a costume, badge, and a gun.
The solution for problems should be what worked in the past.
Americans say that rent control should be used to reduce high rents instead of reducing regulations.
When regulations lead to a bad economy, Americans think that the homeless to should be put in jail and businesses should be given bailouts.
Instead of allowing people to feed the homeless, Americans think feeding the homeless should be outlawed.
Instead of getting rid of welfare that encourages girls to marry the state instead of a man and leads to broken families, Americans think food stamps should be expanded.
Instead of getting rid of minimum wages that cripple the ability of the USA to compete on the world market, Americans think the US should increase the minimum wage and start a trade war by enacting tariffs.
When food stamps lead to increased debt, Americans think that taxes should be raised.
Americans think the only way to attend college is to have student loans, but student loans raise the cost of tuition.
Instead of ending wars that lead to terrorism, tyranny, debt, and refugees, Americans think that the wars should be increased.
China used to encourage people to have kids, but after China became overpopulated, China had an one-child policy.
The USA is supposed to be a free country. The reason the Americans fought the British was because Americans wanted to be free.
When our overlords make a decree, they always sell it as a minor temporary law that only affects Muslims, junkies, sex offenders, homosexuals, illegal immigrants, or blacks. The 1% doesn’t mention that the law will become permanent and more draconian.
No one cares if owning cows are illegal, yoga pants are illegal, teen driving is illegal, or smoking is illegal. The problem is what happens when your job is banned, the government steals your house, tortures your family, or sends you to the concentration camps.
Are you just going to take it?
The elites are trying today to make Americans dependent children by outlawing everything and giving them food stamps. Once Americans are weakened and the US Ponzi economy implodes, the ruling class will then send the 99% off to the gulags to be starved and killed.
Governments are not kind. Governments have killed millions of people in Nazi concentration camps, Soviet gulags, the Chinese Great Leap Forward, and the Cambodian killing fields.
Liberty is not something that only benefits other people, but not you. Freedom benefits everyone.
Tyranny is not something that only punishes other people, but not you. Tyranny punishes everyone.
Freedom is good.
Tyranny is bad.
This is no joke.
History repeats and the signs are everywhere.
Anyone who supports the government is just a tool of the elites.
