The only solution is to Restore the original Founders Constitution with a weak, small limited Federal Government and a unlimited strong State government. The 17th Amendment and the 14th and 16th gave the power to do these Unconstitutional acts with a usurping Court. Are you mad enough or scared enough to join our national effort to take the power away from DC and the Political class. End the Progressive Movement now. The answers are in this library and project to RESTORE LIBERTY. http://articlevprojecttorestoreliberty.com/index.html
The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.

I continue to wonder how long we can keep things like this going and how long those people can continue to live like that. It is so sad to see things like this and see merchants taking advantage of some of those things.
I agree that the government has simply bought votes with programs like this one, but sure enough, many of those poor people would starve to death without the help.
