Welfare system needs to be changed

Our fathers and grandfathers could have easily predicted the problems we are having with teenagers causing mayhem in this country.

Any nation that deliberately pays people not to work and at the same time forces fathers out of the home is headed for disaster. Teenage boys without any Christian training or fathers to guide them are going to cause a lot of problems. The fact that these boys tend to form gangs and become violent should not surprise anyone; for the most part they are confused and angry.

More gun control and/or mental health testing is not going to solve this problem.

Until we as a nation are willing to admit that it is the government that caused this problem, it won’t go away. Our government welfare system needs to be changed such as any able-bodied recipient has to work at some meaningful job in order to receive any benefits.
