USDA Sucking Millions Of Kids Into Food Stamp Program

I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, a socialist government must make the people dependent upon the government for everything in order to successfully control them.

Think about what has happened under Obama’s tyrannical rule.  He has been making it harder and harder on non-profit charities to operate.  Instead of people turning to their churches for help, he wants them turning to the government for help.  Hence his all-out war against Christianity.

Since Obama took over the White House, the government has been actively recruiting as many Americans as possible to receive some type of government assistance for housing, food and medical.  The number of Americans on some form of welfare has nearly doubled in the past four years.  It is estimated that 101 million Americans are receiving some form of food aid from the federal government.  Considering the fact that there are 311.6 million people in the country, that means that almost one out of every three people are reliant on the government for food, let alone other forms of welfare.

But that isn’t enough for a good socialist government.  They need more people to be sucked into government assistance and what better way than to start with the children.  In an announcement made on August 1, the USDA said:

“As part of its ongoing commitment to improving access to healthy food for low income children, USDA has set a goal of serving 5 million more meals to eligible children this summer.”

That 5 million more meals runs their total up to 166 million meals provided through their Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).  The program also provides subsidies in the form of meals to 3.5 million children in public schools.  According to the USDA:

“The SFSP enriches the lives of millions of low-income children in communities across the U.S.  However, it reaches far fewer children than the school programs.”

They are accomplishing their goal by giving children the subsidies for the meals on their food stamps EBT cards.   This is being done through the Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer for Children (SEBTC) program.

Yep let’s get children hooked on using food stamps cards and they will continue to do so throughout most of their life.  I can’t help but think of Proverbs 22:6 which says:

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

It’s ironic that the very people who do not believe or live by the Bible are using biblical principles to ensnare our children into their form of godless socialist government.  I’m not against kids getting the meals they need, but charity should begin with the church and community and not the government and that is the problem. Progressives have been forcing hundreds of charities out of business and replacing them with the government.  This is part of socialism 101.
