Those paragraphs broke down and trivialized the "I don't want to pay for it argument"
The last paragraph was for the majority who I think use that argument falsely. I think most who say that only say it because it seems more socially acceptable than voicing their true concerns.
There's no more to it than that.
Show me an honest example of the people/society/government turning someone "out on their own" once they have become, in some way, "protected" by society.
The "I don't want to pay for it" argument is very valid and I do believe a large percentage of the folks that put it forth believe it, and simply don't want more "Protected" groups on the "payroll" since there are no examples of us being able to get them off.
I think you have a prediliction to try and blame some type of "bigotry"
