This young lady has great courage to voice these opinions! I applaud her and agree with her! Welfare is not a dirty word. Not everyone on welfare is abusing he system. Most people on welfare do not want to be. People in need should not feel totally exposed and violated simply because they are forced to ask for some help.

I try not to delve into politics too often because, quite frankly I don’t understand where the compassion has gone.
When it comes to social services the status quo is to treat people like criminals. Welfare has become a dirty word. It always equates to fat, lazy criminals who suckle off the tits of the government. I frequently have debates with people who believe that more people on Welfare take advantage of it than those that don’t. I simply don’t believe that. Sure, there are scumbags everywhere. There are people who take advantage of systems in this country. The mainstream media floods our news hour with nothing but horror stories of people taking advantage. What we don’t see is the real faces of welfare. We never hear about the majority of people who need short-term, emergency aid.
