I have been voting since 1980. First presidential candidate I voted for was John Anderson, a good God-fearing Republican from Minnesota. He advocated for limited government, but a government who would assist to educate and train poor people to get decent paying jobs to get them back on their feet again and become productive members of society.
Over the years I have voted for many Presidential candidates, some have won, some have lost, but I do not recall getting any "free stuff" ever from the federal government. Maybe you are referring to all the farmers who get CRP payments from the federal government? At least that is all I can infer, from the context of you post.
