Anyone buying winning lottery tickets at a discount is a crook and dealing with a crook make you a crook. And if you are a crook selling your winning lottery tickets so you can continue to collect benefits meant to help those who really need them then you are also a thief.
Lets not be too harsh here RJ.
Firstly, if i pick the winning numbers, then I dont want a discount on my ticket, I want a BONUS!!!
But to answer the question of the OP, I would accept 50%. Although I dont think my benefits amount to 1/2 of the value of my ticket, nor do my harships.
But I can empathize with the OP. Lets say I won a million dollars. And I was previously on food stamps.
Now perhaps in my desire to keep those food stamps, I want to lessen the impact of my lottery win.
It makes no sense whatsoever considering the newfound wealth, but thats like, growing a garden in the Sahara, without a greenhouse.
Its like being GE. Making billions, paying no taxes, and having your reactors spill radioactivity into the Pacific Ocean.
I can understand how one might want to accept their finacial responsibilities. Especially when your gilded pillows start to unravel? The cost of replacement is GINORMOUS!!!
After all, if you read in a magazine, how to undo a security mechanism, and thus proceed to acquire a codified software, which is patented and copyrighted,
does that make you a saint or "robin hood"?
