22. The child support laws need to change.....
I understand the plight of the mothers who are hostile to what Im talking about in my post, however their solution is extreme and out of anger.

The child support laws in Michigan, are clearly extreme solutions for a problem that has existed and continues to exist in some capacity. I have stated my case, my friend is obviously doing his part, above and beyond what he is socially, morally, and legally obliged to do, however many people ignore this and turn him into a stereotypical deadbeat father.

Both democrats and republicans are against single fathers, repubs because of the family values thing, democrats because of the image of hardworking single mother, trying to make ends meet. I was raised by a single mother, we were basically poor, we even lived in a car for a few months because she lost her job, in this case it was my father who caused the problems in the first place.

The father is not always the culprit, we can't just nail responsible fathers to the cross because we have a problem, we need to look at this rationally.
