Government welfare spending, like most government spending, is on an unsustainable path.   

What do we have to show for decades of government welfare spending? - more and more poverty.  Here is a quick video highlighting the results.

The reason that government spending on welfare does not work is because the government has little interest is actually helping people - they don't care.  They are mostly interested in getting re-elected.  The public understands this and it quickly becomes a game of buying votes and emotional storied to push for more welfare programs that only perpetuate the problem.

The one and only solution to poverty is hard work, saving and a community or family that gives a shit. 

When you lose your job and you family helps you out, you realize that they are making sacrifices to help you because they actually care.  This creates motivation for you to get a job as soon as you can and perhaps help someone else in your family when they need help. 

Government programs disconnect the person getting the money from the person that is sacrificing to give you the money.  The money that is given to people has no personal connection because it is socialized on the public through higher taxes and an ever increase in the national debt.  

If you know the person that you are helping, you both gain from the relationship that forces you to trust and respect each other.  This character that is learned during a time of economy downturn becomes the foundation of the financial education of the next generation and the motivation for entrepreneurs to take their turn and become productive.

Likewise, business enterprise cannot exist without providing products that people actually need at a price they can afford to pay.   If government welfare programs were not involved in driving up prices and limiting supplies, businesses would be forced to produce the things that customer need at whatever prices they could afford.

Left alone, business enterprise is the best source of community welfare.  Business enterprise is the only true source of real jobs and goods. 

It is government regulations and taxes and economic policy that distort the market that results in an increase in poverty and the loss of motivation to dare to dream of becoming a world class entrepreneur, creating wealth and increasing the standard of living for everyone involved.

Family and business will always be a better source of welfare then the government.

When are we going to stop our foolish ways and cut the government out of the racket they are in?

The Revolution: A Manifesto

Dr. Ron Paul's THE REVOLUTION: A MANIFESTO is a concise and convincing argument for a return to America's libertarian principles. But the best and most important chapter, without a doubt, is Chapter 6, "Money: The Forbidden Issue in American Politics." Here Dr. Paul details the operations of the Federal Reserve System in stunning clarity. You see, the effects of inflation are not uniform -- the Fed System works as a wealth redistribution system from poor and middle-class to the rich and politically connected. This is the true cause of the increase in inequality and the diminishing middle class.

Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

In discussions of today's economic meltdown and what to do about it, the Federal Reserve is a stealth helicopter: it never shows up on the radar. With the exception of a few esoteric specialists and those Ron Paul Revolutionaries who burst into chants of "Abolish the Fed!" Historian Thomas Woods notes in this important book, the Federal Reserve bears a large part of the blame for the mess we're in. In the first part of "Meltdown," Woods shows how both in theory and in practice, Fed policy fueled an artificial boom and is now leading us to a much larger meltdown.

The Single Global Currency

This book explains the benefits of a Single Global Currency. This is the only book available focused on the debate of implementing a single global currency. Morrison Bonpasse explains how the creation of the Single Global Currency within a Global Monetary Union, managed by a Global Central Bank, could save the world trillions of dollars, while reducing the risk of many of the problems facing the financial markets today – such as the fluctuations in the foreign exchange markets.

What You Should Know About Inflation

This book presents the Austrian theory of money in the clearest possible terms, and contrasts it with the fallacies of government management. Hazlitt takes on not only the Keynesians but also the monetarists, as well as anyone who believes that government debt accumulation and manipulation of interest rates are harmless. Hazlitt touches on a wide variety of macroeconomic topics, including budget and trade issues, as well as the economic history of inflation.
