    There are no government programs. No safety nets. No SS. No Welfare. No Medicare/Medicaid. Now FAFSA. No government handouts whatsoever.

    How would you provide for yourself?

    Same way I always have. Work for someone who can afford to pay me. And if I can't work, then I make do with what I can without getting one thin dime from anyone else unless I earn it myself.

    In the 60's our family of 8 survived with little more than meager S.S. survivor benefits.
    It was a living hell.

    The problem is that there are far too many undeserving and unwarranted recipients these days.

    I have lived 46 years without one dime in any social assistance of any kind.
    I have, however, paid $100,000's in taxes.
