The Oregonian reported last week that fully 156,000 families are on the edge of homelessness in our small-population state. Every one of those households is now paying more than 50 percent of its monthly income on rent, and none of them has any savings; one medical bill, major car repair or job loss, and they’re on the streets.
This has nothing to do with capitalism or socialism or billionaires. It's a simple consequence of average people refusing to build enough housing units.
What is the answer?
Activism will be required to bring about meaningful changes.
immigration enforcement and stopping the abuse of the asylum system.
Several essentials have been turned into a racket such as healthcare and education.
military spending has decreased as a % of GDP for over 50 years
I'm not going to look up a bunch of stats today, but I've already seen enough to make up my mind.
Nobody will recognize the Kaiser Family Foundation statistics that show in California that almost 65% of non-elderly Medicaid users are Hispanic/Latino. Pretty soon once the Democrat Socialists get further power, they will enact a law to stop any demographic tracking like this. That is exactly what France did, and look at now the French yellow vest protests against the government and its tax policies.
Benefit to Soc Sec because they contribute under Fake SSNs
Well you want no defense spending, and any of that money spent on defense to be spent on social welfare. You likely are okay with China annexing the USA or the USA becoming its proxy state and emulating its authoritarian socialist government. Hence, when you say "military spending is out of control", you rather have it go to zero or have a "shell of a military" that is really an armed Peace Corps.Examine the statistics regardless if they are the Inconvenient Truth.

I am not sure about that. A lot work for cash or under the table, and do not contribute to the federal tax rolls, and state income tax rolls. Read below as far as Obama executive order that unlawfully issues social security numbers to non-citizens. I don't know how they prove their past 3 year salaries since it was likely paid in cash and with no official documentation (i.e, W-2's).
Look at Japan at the end of WWII. We didn't have to drop two atomic bombs which killed many innocent children and infants. Or have you seen a weapons of mass destruction discriminate kids from adults? Russians were beginning to invade Japan, and we had to end the war quickly in order to protect the financial interest.
Russia and China are fudging their numbers hard. The rest of NATO members not paying their fair share into common defense are the reason US spending is so high.
believe $$ is the only answer for those who want a decent life.
YOUR TURNLet's see you provide somethin
the nation founded on the world’s greatest known genocide and over three centuries of legalized slavery
FDR’s proposed amendments
He [Harding] kept both promises, putting the nation into a sugar-high spin called the Roaring ’20s,
Progressive “social democracy” has kept Europe, Canada, and the developed nations of the East and South Pacific free of war for almost a century
Medicare and Medicaid
while Democrats accuse Trump of playing identity politics, that is exactly what the left is doing
Kakistocracy saysthe nation founded on the world’s greatest known genocide and over three centuries of legalized slavery
The rich don't give a rat's ass about the poor except as a source of taxes.
The rich don't give a rat's ass about the poor except as a source of taxes. The rich rely on the US sytem to get rich and stay rich. That means education, transport, infrastructure, finance, USD and defense. They think that just because they pay a lot of taxes, they should not have to pay more than a certain amount ("Why should I pay 10% taxes if that means $50 million a year when some immigrant pays only $2k a year and gets all the same benefits?") . Since the rich control the country, that is the policy we have in place.Freedom. Freedom is just some bullshit word spewed out by someone who wants to live his own way without consideration for anyone else or the notion of society. We have a right to bear arms (as stupid as that might be) but we have no right to fire guns indiscriminately in public. We have the right to privacy in our home but we can't kidnap children, bring them home and rape them. So we know that freedom is relative.Take away rich people's money for ten ...
Yes, and the Democrats play Identity Politics which causes tax increases, reduction in quality of life,
We have a right to bear arms (as stupid as that might be)
