This girl for President!
"The problems we face today are there because the people
who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living"
This was written by a 21 yr old woman who gets it. It's her future
she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social
welfare system that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions
are just common sense in her opinion.
Put me in charge . . ...
Put me in charge of benefit payments. I'd get rid of cash payments
and provide vouchers for 50kg bags of rice and beans, blocks of
cheese, basic sanitary items and all the powdered milk you can use.
If you want steak, burgers, takeaway and junk food, then get a job.
Put me in charge of the NHS. The first thing I'd do is to get women to
have birth control implants.
Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you
want to reproduce, use drugs, drink alcohol or smoke, then get a job.
Put me in charge of local authority housing. Ever live in military barracks?
You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair.
Your "home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions

If you want our hard earned cash and housing assistance, accept our rules..
Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin someones "self
esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone
else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered
If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at
least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current
system rewards those for continuing to make bad choices.
AND While you are on benefit income you no longer have the right to VOTE!
For you to vote would be a conflict of interest..... If you want to
vote, then get a job.
Now, if you have the guts - PASS IT ON... BRING ON THE REVOLUTION
