Texas farmers are suffering severe drought conditions. Thus, it should come as no surprise that Congress has decided to help them out with U.S. taxpayer dollars to the tune of around $600 million. It should also come as no surprise that Republicans are as energized about sending this welfare as Democrats are. Itís just another reflection of the socialist, paternalist, welfare-state mindset that pervades both political parties.
It wasnít always that way, of course. Americans once lived in a country in which this sort of thing was unfathomable. The idea of using government to tax people in order to send the money to other people was considered a moral abomination.
