Why are we forced to pay into social welfare? Why do people feel entitled to money another person has earned?

That is how society works. Most people don't butcher or grow their own food, they count on others to do it, and just buy it from a store themselves. They don't learn to fly, they let someone else to that, and just pay an airline to take them. A society connects us all together so we can be more efficient, and focus more on what we want, rather than having to do all the things ourselves. Because of this, when that system is supported by the rest of the people in the group, it tends to do better. Things break down less, and there is more fault tolerance built in. You may not see all the ways you take out from the system, but you do. The fact that you don't notice is just an indicator of how well it does work. You don't think about paying road workers, or worry that you will die from the food you eat, because others are thinking about that. All of us are propping up different parts of society, and reaping benefits (not always directly).

You will change your mind when you get your social security retirement money that you paid into for 45-50 or more years.

I am Legally Blind. Almost Toatally.
I am also a Libertarian Leaning Republican.
We do not believe there should Not Be a Social Safety net, we just oppose the continued expansion of it, using Everyone's money to buy votes for half the politicians.
O a, grateful for the assistance, and I live as cheaply as I can to respect it. I do not feel "Entitles" but more like Grateful.

Cause there is always more poor people voting than rich or upper middle class people.
Poor people always fall for the politicians lies.
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury." -- Alexander Fraser Tyler, in 1776 book, "The Decline and Fall of the Athenian Republic,"

For the same reason people that oppose the military are "forced" to pay in to the military. It's called taxes. If you don't like how they are spent, complain to your representative.
Whining about it only makes you look childish.
