    Growing! Welfare up 34% Now Tops $1 Trillion

    Submitted by P.Au.L on Thu, 10/18/2012 - 10:4

    Economy

    Washington Times: Welfare spending has grown substantially over the past four years, reaching $746 billion in 2011 — or more than Social Security, basic defense spending or any other single chunk of the federal government — according to a new memo by the Congressional Research Service.

    The steady rise in welfare spending, which covers more than 80 programs primarily designed to help low-income Americans, got a big boost from the 2009 stimulus and has grown, albeit somewhat more slowly, in 2010 and 2011. One reason is that more people are qualifying in the weak economy, but the federal government also has broadened eligibility so that more people qualify for programs.

    Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, who requested the Congressional Research Service report, said it underscores a fundamental shift in welfare, moving away from a Band-Aid and toward a more permanent crutch.

    “No longer should we measure compassion by how much money the government spends but by how many people we help to rise out of poverty,” the Alabama conservative said. “Welfare assistance should be seen as temporary whenever possible and the goal must be to help more of our fellow citizens attain gainful employment and financial independence.”

    Overall, welfare spending as measured by obligations has grown from $563 billion in fiscal 2008 to $746 billion in fiscal 2011, or a jump of 32 percent.

    Ron Paul supporters turn out in droves for speech at UVU

    Submitted by sailingaway on Thu, 10/18/2012 - 20:25

    Events

    "OREM Though he is no longer in the race, thousands turned out for Ron Paul's appearance at Utah Valley University Thursday.

    The Texas congressman and former Republican presidential candidate's "revolution" continues for droves who turned out to hear him give his 45 minute speech at the school. The speech, which he delivered without notes, ranged in issues from free markers, the deficit, welfare, poverty and limited government.

    "Once you endorse the principle of welfarism, guess what? The poor get poorer, and the rich get richer," he said. "It's a totally failed system. And we can't be intimidated by those that argue, 'If you don't support the welfare system, you're not a humanitarian.'"

    Some of the loudest applause from the audience came from the portion of Paul's remarks focused on foreign policy, particularly comments that he was opposed to pre-emptive war and that U.S. forces should be immediately removed from Afghanistan."

    more at link, but they assume a fan site is his web page in the 'endorsement poll' bit. That happened a lot during the campaign as I recall, both with that site and a facebook page.

    Utah gives Ron Paul Rock Star Treatment!

    Daily Paul Liberty Forum


    People should be free to make their own choices, Paul said, as long as they take personal responsibility for the consequences of their actions. He said there are a number of bad habits that can hurt people, but they are no more damaging than bad intellectual ideas.

    "If we allow people to make their own decisions about their eternity and what they put into their brain, why is it that we have not adapted and accepted that same principle to what people do with their personal habits and what they put into their bodies?"

    You have to listen to Dr. Jill Stein talk about being arrested outside the debate this week. Your blood will BOIL!

    This is an interesting dialogue between Gary Johnson & Jill Stein about the issues as they apply to their presidential campaigns. I knew that Jill & her VP were arrested outside the debate this week, but how they were treated made me run to my computer to post this. The "arrest" part starts at 21 minutes. You have to at least listen to that part.

    What country are we living in when bonafide presidential candidates get arrested & hancuffed to chairs for hours?
