Responsibility

In Uncategorized on March 15, 2009 at 3:02 am

I strongly feel that reducing (and ending) poverty requires a focus both on what government needs to do as well as on what individuals need to do. We need a mixture of responsible policies and responsible behavior. However, I feel that the government should construct policies that provide opportunities for the poor to become responsible. It is quite difficult for the poor to become responsible if they have no money, no home, and so forth. It may prove benefiical if America, the Land of Opportunity,  provides the poor with a chance to prove they can handle responsibility just like the middle and upper classes.
