To break the entitlement, we have to break the attitude.

Even 30 years ago, many people would have been embarrassed to take money from government.

While not an entitlement in the strictest sense, the attitude is what is important. Some years ago, the father of one of my friends was resiting taking VA benefits. He said that he didn’t earn them and that they should go to the guys who fought in Korea. He was stationed in Alaska at a military prison as a guard and in his opinion it wasn’t enough to take the benefits.

To this day I still remember the screaming fit of rage my mother flew into when I brought home the application for the school lunch program they had handed me. She NEVER would have let us have ANYTHING to do with a handout. Today I'm afraid an increasing number of us just shrug our shoulders and look at entitlements as a way to claw back some small portion of the money the Government keeps stealing from us.
