And I'm sure you never took advantage of any governmental programs, like education or public works. You're saying that you never at a subsidized school lunch, or that your parents never took food stamps in order to make sure you had some nutrition - right? I'm sure you believe that the success of the energy industry is entirely due to hardscrabble dudes like you, and not because its subsidized with tax credits and access to public lands though the Federal government. Feel free to live in that world of ignorance, if you like.
Those things worked out pretty well to you, because you live in a Democracy. You get to speak your mind at every election. But because a Democracy takes measure of the collective voice of all voters, you don't get to selectively reject to help out the people who may need the same help you received, just because you're in a better economic place than you were in. You're lucky you live in a country that helps guys like you; DESPITE guys like you.
