Difference in ideals

You could certainly tell the difference in the ideals of the candidates recently — one promotes the individual, the other the government.

If only the government would concentrate on providing opportunities for self-support rather than handouts, in the long run it will have many more productive citizens, which would strengthen the fabric of the country and provide an economic base that is much more capable of promoting the general welfare than handouts are.
