Most do feel that way. However some of the "less fortunate" chose that lifestyle. You can't help those who don't want to be helped. And some people all they want is "help". There is a certain percentage of the population that just wants everything handed to them. They feel why should they work if they get housing and food for free. I don't minding helping those that need and want it. I however am not thrilled with handing out money money to those that abuse the system or don't want help.
America has done many things bad and its in every country america honestly no offense is kinda like bully's plus with the government we have as they say the rich stay rich the poor stays poor and I have asked this and people have told me its meant for them and if i help it would put me down almost everything to the greedy people think about themselves so im not surprised with all this rudeness that some people dont wanna help and believe me its probably not changing any time soon
To strike motivation into those who are too lazy to get a job and make something of themselves and actually be a citizen in society. Let those who have worked hard in life be rewarded for what they EARN instead of being handed all these things without doing anything to deserve them like get a job, and call themselves "less fortunate".
There is no valid comparision between choosing not to leave a fellow soldier to fend for themselves against enemy forces ... and choosing to acknowledge the FACT that not everybody will be successful, and to pretend otherwise only results in punishing those who are.
I second everything Gatorblue said I am all for helping people that need help but charity should be at the discretion of the person who is giving. I dont want some lazy, worthless bum on the street to get my money that I work very hard for. So the reason the poor get poorer is not that rich people do not want them to do well its because in America we force people to pay taxes that are then spent on housing the lazy and moochers, feeding them, getting them their designer hats and shoes and what not. Oh by the way those people are breeding and having children out of wedlock that are growing up fatherless, faster than the responsible citizens are so if you are not going to compete reproductively you cannot complain when their vote for people who give them our money is stronger than our votes for those who do not.
Apparently, you have no idea of the genesis of the saying that you quoted. The meaning is that, in BATTLE, no man should be left behind if at all possible. This pertains to KIA and wounded. I take it that by "left behind" you are upset that someone has a bigger TV or a newer cell phone. The constitution says you are entitled to life, liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness. In order to pursue that what you perceive as happiness, you have to work and work hard. A lot of people expect everything to be handed to them because someone else, who earned the money to acquire this item, has it. That's the entitlement mentality that will eventually destroy this once great country. I grew up in "The Projects" subsidized housing. I have worked since I was 8 years old. NOTHING was ever given to me and I never expected the government to provide my self esteem.If you are physically able, you should work one, two, even 3 jobs to get what you want. I did.Are you more "entitled than I?
Because most of the time its the "less fortunates" fault there in that position. if you were born, and raised in America, you should have went to school. you have no excuse. And if you don't have enough to go to collage you can get financial aid, or a scholarship.
Most do. They just don't want a third party (government) deciding who gets what. They always fail at making the kind of decisions that actually help people. The military work for all the help and admiration they deserve. It's like you help me - I will back you. They don't just sit around waiting for the other guy to do all the fighting. they work together and save each other together.
