The gov. is not the only advocate these people have. In fact, the government is why these people are disenfranchised in the first place. Government welfare keeps poor people poor, and takes their motivation for bettering themselves away, not only by handing them money for nothing, but also by taking it away if they go make some for themselves if the money they make for themselves reaches a certain point, which might sound good until you learn that the amount is so small that these people would make less at that point than if they never get a job and just stay on gov. assistance. And they don't just take it all away at a certain point, they begin to take it away a little at a time after a certain point and they take away two dollars for every dollar a person makes over a certain amount, thus keeping them poorer than if they don't earn anything.
