Actually, a better solution might be the forced sterilization of everyone with an IQ under 100.
Too many mouth-breathers wasting my damn oxygen.
Something I have often wondered is what the hypothetical dividing line is between being conservative or liberal. Although I firmly believe that the majority of social programs in place to assist the poor are necessary to a certain degree, I despise the fact that so many abuse the assistance. Honestly I think our government could learn a lot from how some European nations assist the poor. So would this make me social or conservative both fiscally and socially because the two blend together.
My apologies as I am at work and have not watched the video and won't until I get home.

For what it's worth, I agree that there are too many freeloaders taking advantage of the system. But I start to disagree when Republicans decide that because less than 5% of the people abuse it, no one should get it. There are systemic ways to address these problems. But cutting everyone's food stamps in half is not the way to do it. And it's hard for me to get on board with "fiscal conservatives" when they are OK with wasting millions of dollars a year on drug tests for welfare applicants, which study after study has shown to be one of the most wasteful uses of taxpayer money in recent history. It's a tough balance, but the lecture's point is that it is really necessary to have both. Liberals and conservatives balance each other out. In an ideal world, it leads to the best decision-making possible. But the Republican party is working hard to ruin even that with all this gerrymandering and voter suppression tactics they've been delving into...
