I appreciate the high quality arguments for and against, ESP the restitution, you paid for it...
But if you are a decent, capable and loving person than the idea should make you feel terrible, ESP as a libertarian, unless you are purposefully gaming and scamming the system out of intent to destroy it.
Nice people also tend to have friends and family that will rush to help in serious times of need.
If food stamps are to exist at all, they need to be last resorts for the mentally ill, disabled, and the unloved/despicable, and the stigma as such should be feature of the benefit.
It's a good subject for chatting about at a cocktail party, but hopefully not for libertarians to actually do with any good effect.
