...social programs??? I'm talking about food stamps/welfare handouts, social security, medi care, subsidized housing, employment etc. Please pick one of the below answers that best gives your level of dependency upon government wealth redistribution programs for your personal survival... 1) I need no assistance let alone social programs. 2) 20% or below. 3) 20% to 40%. 4) 40% to 60% 5) 60% to 80%. 6) The welfare state is my sole provider. I'm asking this question for I have a pretty good idea that the social programs are going to be going on a severe 'diet' here very shortly. The folks in the 20% or less dependency class will weather the cuts the best. Those with a higher level of government dependency are going to have to learn to start 'picking shit with the chickens' for sure... like living in a pickup & camper in the parking lots of Wally World looks to be the wave of the future!!!
