depends on circumstance
no, they are good
get off of them now!
Yet I can't afford $200 to go to a seminar--Matt CollinsWell, I got Rand started on his campaign (just search around here to see). I advised Thomas Massie before he ran for Congress. I am currently advising 2 liberty campaigns for the state legislature. I ran the war-room and won Minnesota for Ron Paul a few weeks back. There are other things I'm probably forgetting.
Just a few places, just a few, that I have in mind. I will definitely be hitting the ground this coming week. I have an interview Monday and I'm now going to research my business Idea more. I have a friend who owns the most popular restaurant in my city, no bullshit. I will definitely get his advice.
That's not a bad Idea come to think about it. Actually that makes a shit ton of sense. I will research the implications of that.
This can work, the ideas are flowing.

I have my food list down, compact, but concise. I have recipes in mind, all healthy, yet traditional. I will have a customized food cart built. I will have to find a place to stay with a good kitchen. I will upload daily footage of my cooking and many social media features. I have a ton of work.
Thank you so much.
I have the num bers, links, and people to get this underway.
He's made several attempts to prove that he isn't some lazy leech stealing from the government and each time he gets shot down because he isn't some awesome perfect image of what you think a citizen should be. This is why we have trouble winning over soft support. Get off the food stamps as soon as possible, work hard, save up, cut back, etc. (other things have been mentioned in this thread). Good luck buddy and I hope that soon you're no longer another member of the welfare state. Reading this thread people will think we're all a bunch of self made millionaires who came up from nothing, struggled against hardship, and accomplished everything in life by ourselves with absolutely no help from anyone.
Edit: My favorite suggestion was that he become the next Mark Zuckerberg because of how easy it is. lol so all he needs is to be a student at a wealthy and prestigious university, get a ton of money from a wealthy investor, and steal the idea. Sounds so easy.

To answer the original poll question, I'd say that depends. Obviously someone like Rothbard would argue that any welfare state is detrimental to the growth of society. However, from the more "moderate" Austrian view, a negative income tax or basic income guarantee as a replacement for all of the various welfare services isn't necessarily incompatible with libertarianism either if you tend to use more utilitarian arguments.
But for the moment, it depends on person to person. Someone who has genuinely fallen on hard times will have a much stronger moral case for taking food stamps than someone who just doesn't want to do anything.
