"It's a mistake to think that poor people get the benefit from the welfare system. It's a total fraud. Most welfare go to the rich of this country: the military-industrial complex, the bankers, the foreign dictators.... This idea that the government has services or goods that they can pass on is a complete farce. Governments have nothing. They can't create anything, they never have. All they can do is steal from one group and give it to another...." ~ Ron Paul

If everyone goes and jumps in a lake, they will drag you in with them; wear a life-preserver.
Life is characterized by pervasive uncertainty; the two ways people deal with this are 1) laying in insurance of various sorts and 2) creating the illusion of reducing said uncertainty. The latter of these produces nothing but evil.
