The Deep South was built on the very idea of getting "free stuff", with free labor to build all the stuff you ever dreamed of having. How about the white men who were given Indian land for free. Then in an era of development the Guv'mint built highways, price supports, dams, electricity ... The latter are a good thing. But are foreign mining claims for $5/acre also a "good thing"?
It hasn't ended either, bank bailouts and the military budget, completely unnecessary for national defense, cost taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars, compromising our ability to promote the general welfare. Welfare for the poor is NOTHING compared to any single one of these practices.
