You can sell your EBT by letting another person use the card lets say they want to buy $40 of food you let them use your card to do that and they pay you $30.

My mom does it sometimes cause we have plenty but I always thought it was wrong.

I guess it is not.

But I guess I should also ask if it is wrong of the person buying it too libertarians will always find little loophole to say wrong wrong so I am asking if that is it maybe seller of EBT is good but buyer is using aggression.

As was already said, the whole idea of redistribution of wealth is wrong.

It is wrong but not that bad.  Morality and ethics are seldom black and white.  Most actions are somewhere between clearly good and clearly evil.  Selling your EBT care is maybe dark grey. 

You have access to extra, someone else needs more, there's some good to be had by letting them buy the extra you have.  There is some bad in exploiting the system to your advantage in a way that expressly violates the terms of use.  Where the scale is at the end of that, IDK, you decide for yourself.

See Ahhell how Jeff's answer changed now that I am talking about the buyer it is because he figured out that I am talking about Opposition we had a big dinner on Saturday my mom paid for the food and Opposition cooked it all but he would not eat any cause he said libertarians would say it was aggression.

He is teaching me to be a logical shopper he shows how you can get like 3x as much or more if you buy the raw materials and craft the food yourself.

So bottom line is because he was helping us shop we saved so much we only spent like 1/3 of what a meal like that costs cause my mom always buys finished platters and stuff I think he should get to eat some of the food.

Not to veer the thread off-topic, but I.  Have to believe that EBT.  Cards are easily.  Counterfeited...  Hackers usually have little problem outwitting government boobs who design security measures.  Government employees are easily corrupted since they already live off of other. People’s sweat.  If a case of EBT cards went missing, it would likely never be noticed and if it were noticed, whoever is at fault would cover it up.

I am not asking if it is illegal I know it is I am asking if libertarians think I should be allowed to sell or give away the food is bought by my EBT card or if I have to eat it all.



This is not about if libertarians approve or not.  This is a very undignified question and libertarians want to live in a civilized and dignified society.  There would be no EBT in a libertarian society.

Most of the EBT people don't even spend my tax money on staple food like bread, rice, and meat but buy junk food.  EBT people are fat.  7-11 accept EBT and you can go there o buy a slurpy on my tax.

Hey, it is free country, buy what you want with my tax.  Thank you.

I think you're probably exactly right, and it's not off topic at all.

All large bureaucracies work the same, generally, they don't bother to look for missing money or missing anything else either, not within the bureaucracy anyway.

I saved you a ton of money on that feast.

I even made the dough for the rangoons myself.

Out of flour.

Altogether I saved you around $80.

You're welcome.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Well, thanks.  And you know I am not talking about you.  I am talking about all the lazy asses that keep having kids.  I think I told you that I never see then buying anything but junk food with EBT.

You enjoy cooking, do you?  One of the best things, in my opinion about Asia, especially Japan is its respect for people who want to eat alone.  I was at a Yakiniku restaurant yesterday that was single seating beside one table for two that I sat with my date.  Everyplace is automated.  You just order from a screen and the food and beverage just come up from an opening in the table or side of it.  Tou almost never see a waiter.
