"If my money is being taken from me in the name of feeding poor people, then I want the say as to what poor people eat"
Then vote for the right people, or run for office yourself and change the system. It's your right. Write letters to your local newspaper, get involved and exercise your blood-bought, Constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms. This is what conservatism is all about.
But understand this: You - as a private citizen - will NEVER have the say as to what poor people eat. Grousing is your only option.
But if you get involved in your political system, you might have the opportunity to change things down the road.

The argument shouldnt be "what poor people eat." They can eat whatever they damn want. The argument should be what can they purchase with tax payer money.
I am fairly confident that is what ampat means. He should have worded it that way though.

I despise politics and politicans more. I do vote for the right people, but they always seem to be the lesser of all evils.I do write my congressman--and both Senators. I do exercise my freedoms, such as posting on FR.
