Sydney Phillips of www.thecollegeconservative.com shows you how to get food stamps without really trying. She’s a college student who was conducting a social experiment on how difficult, or as it turns out easy, it is to get food stamps, now known as an EBT Card. She goes through the motions, not really complying with the necessary steps, failing to provide required earnings data and winds up getting her EBT card in the mail a month later. And best of all, she can get $200 per month, to feed a hungry family of one. For many students, but not Sydney, this is the difference between being able to purchase marijuana, go to social events, or even take a trip home to see the family.
This is just another case of indoctrination. Show the young college students that it’s not really that big a deal going on the dole and that everyone does it! This helps break down that stigma of being a ward of the State and sets the individual up to be a lifelong participant in the entitlement state. Not that there aren’t people who really do need such assistance, of course there are many, but the danger is that people become addicted to free money and benefits, compliments of Uncle Sam. This is a danger to our way of life and to the continued economic viability of the country.
