What we call entitlements are a way for a politician to justify stealing from one person to give to another. They call the justification by the means of what they feel one needs and one deserves. Then, when one decides who gets to choose their peoples keep then they claim stake of being the master of those people. Who then would you vote in to lead, someone who wishes to become your master, or a man that wishes to keep the freedoms of those he serves dear to his heart...? To be given something by the government, they must first take it from someone else. Someone who has earned it to give to those who wish to "steal", take it. They (the government) own nothing on their own.
