Today the people of the United States of America have an opportunity to make the world a better place. Rather than wasting time compromising the political ideologies of progressives and conservatives, Americans could use that time to employ modern economic and scientific advancements to eradicate poverty. The USA could lead the world into a new era where prosperity is the rule rather than the exception.

As long as there are lazy shiftless people there will be poverty...
I would argue we have already eradicated poverty. America’s poor are the fattest people on the planet. Basic childhood diseases such as polio, smallpox, etc... have been eradicated. Everyone in this country can have basic food and shelter easily even if they don’t lift a finger to help themselves.
In fact, our prosperity has resulted in a whole new set of problems - spiritual and moral poverty
Dick McDonald: Space Cadet!
Just send everyone a million bucks. All our problems would be solved. It works just this way for lottery winners, doesn’t it?
That was quite an interesting way of framing Social Security privatization. It’s true as well, but people almost never approach it from that direction.
No more welfare, food stamps, housing, medical care, etc!!!
Everyone make their own way in this world or quit taking up space on this planet!!!!
>> Rather than wasting time compromising the political ideologies of progressives and conservatives...
By using the word “progressive”, which is a euphemism for “turd” favored by the left, the author outs himself as one of them.
>> Americans could use that time to employ modern economic and scientific advancements to eradicate poverty...
It would be more beneficial over the long haul to employ modern weapons advancements to eradicate progressives.
America's poor were materially better off than the poor anywhere in the world and materially better off than our middle class of 50 years ago. It was called the free enterprise system.
Then we started subsidizing and importing poverty with no thought as to how to pay for it . . . and we got more of it. Go figure.
I thought LBJ did that already in the 1960’s. See how well it worked out?
Just start handing out trillion dollar coins. Problem solved.
Quit paying people not to work.
If most people opted for making a paycheck, they wouldn't BE 'staying on welfare and dependency programs'!
Sometimes the backassward logic of these progressive critters is SUCH a hoot!
So this is not an Onion spoof?
Universal Savings Account (USA) for everybody! You are forced to ‘save’ for your own good.
Now it is time for Obama$Care to take care of the ‘poor’. Just think of the children!
The author might as well start the United Federation of Planets.
“There will always be poor” - Jesus Christ.
Pres. Obama, the great savior, can just make poverty illegal by executive order and that would solve everything.
The age old problem solved.
After all, it works with the budget, right?
The median household income in the US is less than $52,000 per year yet if you divide the total public aid spending by the number of recipients the per person amount is about $60,000 per year.
Putting aside how many people are in a “household” in this demographic group, just how much more should we be spending before the job of eliminating poverty is completed and we can move on to other important social issues?
pres Obama needs no stink’n budget.
he’s been operating without a single budget.
/wonder how it will work if everybody operates without any budget
You ask excellent and totally logical questions, and even the authors idea of privatizing accounts is not a bad one.
The fatal assumption comes when one thinks the government has ANY interest in 'ending poverty'.
My neighbor who is close to my age,and who apparently made about the same annual income now collects disability practically equal to my take-home pay of a 40 hour job.
We both have back problems.He sits ayt home doped on prescribed painkillers in a rented house watching TV and gets help with rent and food as well.
I got a job where my back issues don’t really matter,and mortgage payments.
Which one of us is living the American dream?
All kidding aside.
I have grown to be extra weary whenever I hear people starting their idea with phrases like ‘Today the people of the United States of America have an opportunity to make the world a better place.’
Especially if the proposed ‘remedy’ is not based on individuals’ own decision.
Reagan put us on this path, but it didn’t involve Big Government, so the politicians, bureaucrats, media, and other useful idiots put an end to it.
As the lazy hillbilly said 48 years ago when Lyndon Johnson declared WAR on Poverty....”If the President wants me in THAT WAR he is going to have to draft me!”
The flaw is that the government will sooner or later raid or seize the funds for its own wasteful spending.

New York Daily Sun ^ | 14/01/13 | Dick McDonald
Typical liberal dumbass stooge! Hey McDonald, LBJ declared a war on poverty in 1964, and stated that poverty would be eradicated in 10 years (1974). How is that war coming along? We now have more people percentage-wise below poverty level than it was in 1964.
These liberals are the epitome of stupidity and wasted programs & policies. We need our own conservative country more than ever!
1. First, we have to define "poor." In the current zeitgeist it seems that the only people who aren't considered poor under any circumstances are millionaires. Ergo, a person with a million dollars cannot be considered likey one of the dreaded "working poor." So a million dollars it is.
2. Next, we instantly cure poverty by sending a check for $1 million to every American American citizen who isn't already a millionaire.
3. It would cost $300 trillion to honor these checks, so we get the mint to coin 300 $1 Trillion dollar coins. We could put LBJ's face on them as a consolation prize for having lost the War on Poverty. Obama can keep them in his bottom desk drawer. That way he can shine them whenever he likes and look at his majestic reflection in them.
Voila! Problem solved!! Next up: providing enough whellbarows so that no American is left without a way to carry enough money when he goes to the grocery store for bread.
So sorry but the “time to eliminate poverty”. Isn’t herte yet. The American public just voted for 4 more years of economic ruin and job losses.
You don’t say much do you?
I dislike that the New York Daily Sun could be confused with several other news papers by people who aren’t paying attention.
I don’t see much Libertarianism in the articles you post. I see arguments for the reasonableness of progressive policies.
You haven’t done any thing wrong and I’m not the posting police, but what is your intent? What do you hope to accomplish publishing these on Free Republic?
So sorry but the “time to eliminate poverty”. Isn’t herte yet. The American public just voted for 4 more years of economic ruin and job losses. “ELections have consequences” you know.
What part of “The Poor you will always have with you” does he not understand?
Many a tyrant has come to power on the promise of eradicating poverty.
Good points all.
But Lefties don't believe in math.
Just the kind of "science" that gives them the answer they want.
The blog led to http://www.theusaplan.com/ which isn’t a bad idea.
The deception to get people to the other web site, not such a good idea.
Just announce that the “poverty line” is now $5.00 per month. Presto! Everyone is living above the new poverty line and therefore no longer poor.
This is so simple I surprised Zero hasn’t thought of it yet...or even V.P. Crazy Joe.
Exactly - is the author suggesting that these people be eradicated as the only way to get rid of poverty? No poor people = no poverty...
I have learned by experience that you CANNOT help some people. No matter how much you try to help, they ALWAYS make bad choices and do stupid things. So utopian marxist morons should not be taking MY money to try do something that is impossible . . . just to make themselves feel good . . . makes me feel terrible!!!
The poor will always be with us. - Jesus.
Today the people of the United States of America have an opportunity to make the world a better place.
they will just redefine “poverty”. the reformer’s problem isn’t truly impoverished people. their problem is the difference in lifestyles. the problem is that there are comfortable people.
What poverty? Haven’t we won LBJ’s War on Poverty?
No matter HOW much money is given to poor people, they will still be poor. It’s a self imposed mind set.
