Besides the lottery, what have Americans done to placate the poor?

I don't believe that it is society's burden to placate the poor.

Instead, we need to maintain processes that provide the opportunity to achieve and overcome obstacles.

Of course, all people are equal, but each person has a responsibility to work as diligently as possible to achieve a good and useful life. Entitlement should not be expected or provided. Equal opportunity should.

And, if we can clearly see that the effort is there, but the results are not forthcoming, a temporary helping hand should be provided by society.
write it in the constitution, that we have the right of "PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS". (just mad shooters, ok?)
