The government can't give a person ANYTHING that it does not first take away from someone else.
If we took from our neighbors what the government does, we would be jailed.
The reason most people support legalized government plundering is because they are brainwashed that all wealth was ill gotten and at their expense.
If you promise to take 50,000 from a wealthy person and give $5,000 to 10 people, the person who earned the $50,000 may not vote for you, but 9 of the 10 you give $5,000 for doing nothing will.
THAT my friends is why socialism is so appealing to the majority.
