    I always hate when I see the right wing converts to Ron Paul cheering that Florida development of drug testing for welfare. It SOUNDS like it is a common sense solution as most people don’t like the idea of a welfare state, but it’s just one more chip away from the block that makes up our constitutional freedoms. First they’re taking drug tests, but then it gets uncovered that they’re saving blood type information, maybe even DNA profiles… long slippery slope.

    I have two main reasons for being against drug testing of welfare recipients.

    First, it doesn’t seem save any money. My anecdotal evidence is that most conservatives think that welfare people are mostly drug using lowlifes and this is a way to get them kicked off.

    Second, welfare is mostly for the kids. Kicking addict parents off welfare hurts the kids most and they’re the people who need the help the most.
