I believe that all conservatives and Republicans in the United States should return their coronavirus-relief checks to the federal government so that they do not become ‘unproductive, lazy welfare recipients’ who are accepting ‘handouts’ from the federal government, which they hate.

It is hypocritical for conservatives and Republicans to accept help from the federal government when they constantly oppose such help for the middle and lower classes who truly need it, and on whom they look down. Now they are in these very people’s shoes.

All of our allies in Western Europe and Canada have federal governments that do more to help their people than the United States does. For us to be right, all of them have to be wrong.
