“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” - Winston Churchill

A record 47 million are on food stamps. A record 105 million receive some kind of welfare benefits. Social Security disability recipients are at an all time high. President Franklin Roosevelt said “The lessons of history, confirmed by the evidence immediately before me, show conclusively that continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fiber. To dole our relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit. It is inimical to the dictates of a sound policy. It is in violation of the traditions of America. Work must be found for able-bodied but destitute workers.”

The main problem for them is that Democracy did work. They tried to pass a law telling a land owner what they can do with their land and denying them the right to mitigate infrastructure improvements. The public voted them down 3 to 1.
