(note: to the handful of reactionsists here, this is not a post saying the FS Program NEEDS to eliminated)...
Would the people of the country step up to the challenge of feeding their neighbors? Would they donate to the churches? Would they do what is necessary?
I think they would. I think that people, when pushed, respond very well. I think the vast majority of people WANT to do what is right, but they are hit with so much propaganda from all over that it makes is damn near impossible to think straight, or even converse.
The fact that everyone in this country is eating crap at least once a day is not helping us to function and think our way out of this.
Would anyone else back the idea of turning the food stamp program into something more like WIC, which only allows for certain foods?
