Do We Need the National Park Service to Take Over Food Stamp Program?

There is no doubt that America is becoming the land of government handouts and entitlements. The Democrats have long believed that they can enslave the American people by making them dependent upon the government for their survival rather than to depend upon themselves.

But the problem of government handouts is not a new problem as Benjamin Franklin wrote about welfare back during the foundation of America.

“In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries that the more the public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

However, it appears that our government, over the past 100 years, has forgotten Franklin’s warnings and instructions. He told us then that the more the government hands out, the more dependent the people will become and instead of actually helping the poor, we end up locking them into the system and creating more poor.

A friend of ours posted something on his Facebook page that I thought spoke volumes to the wisdom of government handouts. It was the image of a small newspaper editorial that someone tore out of the paper. After a little research, I found the editorial was published by the Miller County Liberal on June 13, 2012. It was submitted by Billy Fleming and reads:

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to ‘Please Do Not Feed the Animals. Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves. This ends today’s lesson.’”

    “If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress... Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.” James Madison, considered the father of out Constitution.
