Poll question: Would you steal food to feed your family?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. No, damn it, I'd make 'em steal their own food!
It's about time they learned a little self-reliance.

4. No, I'd steal money to buy food.
Or deal drugs or something. Lots of options out there.

5. Quote applies:
"Honor is a beautiful thing, but it is a means, not an end. A man who starves with honor does not feed his family, a King who falls on his sword with honor does not save his people."

6. Yes, but not from others that are also hungry.



I think that is something that separates Dems from rethugs.

7. I would do almost anything to keep my family alive...
Unless of course I am severely harming someone else in the process.

I would not kill.
I would not attack anyone.

But I would steal.

9. Sad thing as I was checking out of Publix the other day. Two young
women in handcuffs being escorted out by the locals for shoplifting. Other customers and I agreed most likely trying to feed their families with little or no income.

12. Of course, fattening 'em up is an investment
I don't want to be forced to resort to eating free-range strangers if things go sour.

14. Can't honestly say.
We have never been that hungry before and I know that you can't really say unless you've been in that situation.
We are blessed to have many, many friends who would share with us so I doubt it would ever come to that (and we would ask if we needed it). We have given to so many people so I'm hoping that karma will help us in that regard.

I would never judge someone who stole food who was hungry or needed to feed someone in their family, however.

15. This question reminds me

of people who condemn illegal aliens for coming here, because "they are breaking the law!"

16. I Would
try to find any kind of work and if that fails I would beg and if that fails I would steal.

I have a friend who is a policeman and I asked him what he would do in that situation. He said "it depends"...
