I am opposed to the public dole...

Yet I see a day when I may have to take advantage of it. Why? Because I am paying approximately 40% of my yearly income in taxes of one kind or another, even though I am only modestly paid. That amounts to tens of thousands of dollars per year that I cannot save for hard times or for my fast approaching old age.

Harry Browne used to say that the government likes to break your legs (steal your money), then hand you a crutch (welfare) and tell you how lucky you are that they were there to help you.

They did that to Ayn Rand, too.
