The gang of eight and all the other politicians who desire to make the shadowy illegal aliens in America instantly legal keep assuring us that once these folks are out of the shadows they will not receive welfare. In case you live in a cave someplace (which is silly because you would not be reading this) welfare is paid for with tax dollars. People work hard for their money and then some of it is extorted from them by government who then hands it over to those who do not work, cannot work, or are not earning much money.
Welfare was designed to be a social safety net but it has become a wealth redistribution scheme run by the government to keep people dependent on the politicians. Vote for us and we will keep paying you with other people’s money.
There is proof that once illegals are given some sort of legal status they will get welfare. One big one is the Senators who have proclaimed that they will get the money. That pretty much indicates there is no push to ensure it does not happen.
Another good indication is that billions of dollars in taxpayer money is spent on welfare that goes to people who should not get it. People in prison are getting checks. People who are dead continue to get checks that their families are undoubtedly spending. There are billions of dollars wasted in the welfare scheme.
Another strong indication that those newly legal people will get our tax dollars is the fact that many of them are getting our tax dollars as ILLEGALS.
A woman in Florida who is in this country illegally and has been for at least 20 years is drawing $240 a month in food stamps and $700 a month in Social Security and she has been getting this money for 20 years. She is 50 years old so that means we have been supporting her since she was 30.
The amount of money she gets and whether or not she can live on it is not material to the issue. The real issue is that she is here illegally and is receiving welfare money.
How in the name of all that is holy can our government claim those illegals it deems to be legal will not get welfare money when it cannot stop the illegals from getting it? This woman is but one example that is surely repeated all across the nation. The linked article indicates that Florida has a lot of food stamp recruiters and they have a goal; to increase federal aid to Florida by a billion dollars a year.
These people are working to get folks on the welfare rolls whether they are lawfully eligible or not.
Our tax dollars are being wasted supporting people who squirt out a litter of children or bring in their families (this woman has 7 people to feed) while we work our butts off to make ends meet.
The members of Congress working on immigration reform say that tax dollars in the form of welfare will not be given to those newly legal people but we all know this is a lie.
We have a problem with illegals for two very basic facts. The first is we have an open border and we refuse to secure it. The second is we give illegals welfare. If we did not pay them our money to come here they would stay home.
It is time to tell Congress to drop all ideas of making these people legal. We need sweeping reform that includes purging all the welfare rolls of people who are here illegally. Couple this with e-verify and workplace enforcement and these people will eventually self deport.
Let’s solve the problem by making them go home rather than making them legal (thus rewarding them for their crime) and paying them to be here.
Enough is enough.
Never surrender, never submit.

With the Obama regime neck deep in scandals, all of which are real and deserve scrutiny, the Senate is forging ahead with immigration reform. Read that as backdoor amnesty because Senators from both parties are working on ways to promise us one thing and do another. They are also working to pass as much as they can while our attention is focused on the Obama criminal regime.
The Senators keep telling us that these illegals will not be allowed to get taxpayer funded assistance. No welfare for them when they come out of the shadows. This is absolute BS.
First of all, the Senate Judiciary Committee has passed an amendment to the immigration legislation that will allow illegals who are magically changed to legally here eligible for welfare.
Even if this were not the case they would still get it. How is that, you ask?
Quite easy! Under the misinterpreted and misapplied 14th Amendment any child born here to these illegals will be called a US citizen. The parents, though illegal, will apply for any benefits that a child who is a US citizen can get. These people will have welfare rolling in and spend it on whatever they want (they do this now so how will it be any different when we make them legal). Those who claim that they will get no welfare will then tell us that those kids are citizens and “deserve” this.
No, we did not lie because citizens are getting your money, not those illegals we waved our amnesty wand over.
The liberals in the Senate have already balked at removing the eligibility for the Earned Income Credit (EIC) on their taxes. This credit is a wealth redistribution scheme where people who pay no taxes (or very little that they usually get back) get money because they have children. It is a scheme that allows those who pay no taxes to get what was withheld back AND THEN SOME.
The Senate passed the amendment allowing welfare so it matters not but regardless of how they approach this, the illegals will be getting taxpayer money. If that is not bad enough, the alleged fines these people will have to pay (as in fines and back taxes) is all a ruse.
As pointed out, they pay little or no taxes. How can we force them to pay back taxes when they end up not having owed any taxes? No, this is all smoke and mirrors so the government can claim that these people paid their dues.
No restriction is allowed on all of these lawbreakers. The advocates for these illegals are screaming about an amendment making conviction of a third DUI grounds for deportation. No, we can’t have such a strict thing for people whose first act in this nation was to break our law.
Look, these folks can be wonderful and hard working pillars of their shadow communities but the reality is that they are all lawbreakers. They came here illegally and now want to be rewarded for their crimes. They expect special treatment over those who are trying to do things the right way.
I personally have a friend who is highly skilled and has a job offer pending at a hospital but she cannot get here because of all the illegals and non English speaking people gumming up the works. She has been waiting for years to come here and she would be an immediate asset. She is skilled in a profession that is in short supply and she has a job offer. She would start working and begin paying taxes immediately.
But she can’t come here because of all the future Democrat voters who are demanding they be rewarded for breaking the law and because liberals in Congress are listening to them.
We need to put systems in place to flush these folks out where they self deport or we send them packing and we need to change our laws so that those who try to come here the right way AND HAVE SOMETHING TO OFFER are processed quickly.
We conservatives are not against immigration. We are against illegal immigration.
We are also against members of Congress who pander to people who break the law and expect to be rewarded for it.
I have an idea. Let’s evict the United Nations, tear down the building and ship the bricks to the south. Then round up the illegals and make them build a wall between them and the US with those bricks. Once it is done we will let them walk back home without being put in jail. In exchange for their labor we will allow them to apply for legal entry in 15 years, may never become a citizen and may never vote in an election.
Even Democrats won’t want them here if they can’t vote.
Never surrender, never submit.

It looks like the Boston Bombers and their families were paid over 100 thousand dollars of US taxpayer money in the form of welfare. The bombers probably purchased the items they used to make their bombs with money from those who work hard and pay taxes. In effect, our government paid for the terror that occurred in Boston.
There are many failures in our government and the inability to weed out those who should not be here is among the most egregious of its failures. The Department of Homeland Security is supposed to be on top of things here in the “homeland” and should be focusing on the people who are here and intend to do bad things.
The reality is that the DHS would rather spend time demonizing veterans, Christians, conservatives and many other groups that have not used violence in pursuit of their agendas. Instead of looking at the illegals and those who are here legally but do bad things the DHS is stuck on attacking those who do no harm.
The Tsamaev brothers were reported as bad actors and they were checked on by federal officials. Instead of taking action the government decided to allow them to continue living here and receiving welfare money.
Our government is directly responsible for what happened in Boston from the bombing to the police state that followed.
The progressive agenda of the past 100 years has given us generational welfare and record numbers of people dependent on government (read working taxpayers). The progressive agenda is not only responsible for the bombing in Boston. The progressives and their agenda are responsible for the decay of many American cities that are run by progressives who dole out taxpayer money to people enslaved to government.
The inability of government to secure the nation and the failure of the progressive agenda has not stopped progressives from doubling down. No, the new immigration bill being floated around will ensure that millions of illegals who get a legitimate status will be allowed to get welfare. The progressives are working on building a new cadre of would be American haters who can use taxpayer money to cause chaos.
That chaos will mostly be economic where millions more on the dole will suck the last breaths from an already dying economy. But what will stop just one terrorist from getting and using taxpayer money to cause mass destruction in another US city?
We need to get a handle on the immigrants in this nation and we need to weed them out. Legally here or not we need to check to make sure they can stay here. Illegals should be sent home and those here legally but who should not be allowed to stay should be right behind them.
Until we address the number of bad people here and do something smart like getting rid of them there is no doubt we will have further attacks.
I doubt the decpticons in government really care. As long as our overlords have protection they really do not care what happens to everyone else.
Does anyone really think Obama and the rest of the progressive elitists care about dead school children or marathon runners?
If they cared about human life (other than their own) they would not support abortion and the monster in PA who murdered babies.
And they certainly would not “God Bless” Planned Parenthood…
Just so you know, I don’t disagree with everything Obama says.
Never surrender, never submit.

The young lady in this video is the poster child for why welfare must be reformed and by reform I mean nearly eliminated.
There is no doubt that some form of welfare as a temporary measure is needed but it should be a hand up and not a hand out.
The idea that the so called poor can get free cell phones (and sometimes as many as 20 or 30) and other assistance from multiple welfare departments which can be used to buy fast food and other luxury items is absolutely despicable.
Welfare needs to be uncomfortable. People on welfare should not be allowed to have cell phones and they should not wear all kinds of expensive jewelry. They should not be allowed to buy any food above basic items needed to live. This idea of steaks, lobster and fast food is one that MUST go away.
The young lady in this video is touting all the “free” stuff you can get by being on welfare and asks why anyone would work.
Well, we work to support OURSELVES. We do not work to support you and the other slugs who abuse our generosity.
When slugs like this are not embarrassed to take the money of hard working people and when she and people like her are happy to wave their abuses in our faces then it is absolutely time for reform.
She is a parasite. Anyone like her is a parasite. We need to stop these parasites by forcing them to get jobs. We can do that by making it very uncomfortable to be on welfare.
One more thing; this welfare slug discusses all the benefits people are able to get. THESE ARE NOT BENEFITS.
They are handouts and no one is entitled to them. They get the welfare because we started with a plan of compassion that politicians have used to enslave people.
So tell this chick and the rest of the welfare denizens to get off the plantation and get a job before we have to boot their butts to the street.
Never surrender, never submit.

The federal government has done a good job of making a large number of people slaves to government and it has done so at the expense of those who work. The government does this by giving our tax dollars to people who pay nothing in taxes by allowing credits and other deductions so people receive money even though they paid nothing.
This is redistribution of wealth and government loves being involved in it. Recently, the government raised a lot of hoopla about cutting the Social Security tax by 2% and the battle to extend that cut received a lot of attention. The cut is not paid for and will lead to an even larger deficit in Social Security but government did manage to redistribute wealth in the deal. It added a fee to new or refinanced mortgages that lasts the life of the loan. The cut is for two months and even if extended will not last as long as the fee added to the mortgages. The money will go to the general fund instead of being used to offset the SS cut. No matter what it is used for, it was taken from producers who buy houses to pay for something else.
Another program exists that cost those who pay their own bills 1.6 BILLION dollars. That program provides low income Americans with free cell phones (not free, just no cost to them). The phones are paid for with the Universal Service Fee that people pay for their landline and cell phones. As you can imagine, it is poorly managed and has a lot of waste.
This is another example of where people pay a fee that is added to their bill to provide for those who don’t have something. There is no way to claim cell phones are a right or a necessity. Cell phones are a luxury and nothing else. People in this country existed and did quite well for a long time before cell phones ever existed. Why do we have to provide cell phones for people who cannot afford them on their own?
If you can’t afford a cell phone then you should not have one, period.
The poor in America, those who pay little or no federal income tax, would be rich in most other countries. This is what the poor look like in America:
The following are facts about persons defined as “poor” by the Census Bureau as taken from various government reports:
- 80 percent of poor households have air conditioning. In 1970, only 36 percent of the entire U.S. population enjoyed air conditioning.
- 92 percent of poor households have a microwave.
- Nearly three-fourths have a car or truck, and 31 percent have two or more cars or trucks.
- Nearly two-thirds have cable or satellite TV.
- Two-thirds have at least one DVD player, and 70 percent have a VCR.
- Half have a personal computer, and one in seven have two or more computers.
- More than half of poor families with children have a video game system, such as an Xbox or PlayStation.
- 43 percent have Internet access.
- One-third have a wide-screen plasma or LCD TV.
- One-fourth have a digital video recorder system, such as a TiVo.
Being poor in America is not as bad as it is made out to be by politicians who are hell bent on keeping large numbers of people enslaved. Why would anyone who has all this stuff and is able to receive a welfare check or some other help plus a “free” cell phone have any kind of incentive to do better?
Why go at it on your own when you can get all this stuff from the sweat of another?
Politicians like people to be enslaved to government because it gets them votes. Yes, most welfare programs from food stamps to cell phones are nothing more than methods to buy votes. Sure, the programs do provide legitimate help to people who really need it but there are far too many people feeding at the trough. Most do not need to be there.
I read this somewhere and it is true, if you rob Peter to pay Paul you can always count on Paul’s support.
Government assistance, or safety nets, should be there for people who truly need them and they should be short term, temporary programs that are uncomfortable for those who use them. Most of all they should encourage people to get off them.
Unfortunately, government encourages people to get on them and stay on them creating generational poverty and increasing the Democrat voter block.
If you live off the taxpayer or off those who pay fees with their bills then you are a dependent of those folks.
Don’t forget that when we require you to take drug tests or provide some kind of community service to earn your keep.
Earn your keep? Get real. These folks get by because we earn their keep.
Never surrender, never submit.
