The following story from CNNMoney outlines how the government wants more people on food stamps. The graph below shows the massive increase to all time highs for this program. If you control the food supply, you control the people. Although their intent is to make people dependent on the government in order to gain more power over them, the end result is slavery.
For those who think they are free even when their lives are controlled and regulated by the government, consider these words carefully:
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free”…
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
It is surprising how prescient people were in the past and how easily people will give up their Liberty for a slice of bread or a little security today.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — More than one in seven Americans are on food stamps, but the federal government wants even more people to sign up for the safety net program.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been running radio ads for the past four months encouraging those eligible to enroll. The campaign is targeted at the elderly, working poor, the unemployed and Hispanics.
The department is spending between $2.5 million and $3 million on paid spots, and free public service announcements are also airing. The campaign can be heard in California, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, and the New York metro area.
“Research has shown that many people — particularly underserved seniors, working poor, and legal immigrants — do not understand the requirements of the program,” said Kevin Concannon, a USDA under secretary.
