What evidence do you have that there is a dependency on the US, and why it's bad? From how I see it, as long as foreign countries are dependent on us, we effectively own and control them.
As for entitlement programs here, I'm pretty sure people like Octomom are the minority. The solution should be restricting the behavior of any person or corporation who receives government aid, not tossing it out completely.
