A question someone should ask Liberals

Think Progress is out with another “we could end homelessness with the money Americans spend on…….” line of propaganda. In this case, they are saying that we could end poverty with the money we spend on Christmas decorations. This is a bogus claim, if throwing money at poverty, and homelessness were going to end it, it would have been over decades ago. Smitty nails it

Memeorandum features this headline from Think Progress:

We Could End Homelessness With The Money
Americans Spend On Christmas Decorations

This is false. It could only be true if the complex problem known by the misleading label ”homelessness” were just a matter of money, but it’s not.

Homelessness made headlines in the 1980s and was exploited for purposes of partisan propaganda by liberals who saw an opportunity to dramatize what they construed as consequences of “Reaganomics.” In fact, as researchers discovered, homelessness is primarily caused by non-economic factors: mental illness, substance abuse and family disruption.

All very true, but there is the question I would love to ask Liberals who always demonize Republicans for being greedy. If Liberals truly buy that line of thinking fine. But, I must ask this question. Why do Liberals NEVER say if President Obama donated all the campaign contributions he got, we could “end poverty”? Why do they never look at themselves? Why do Liberals always look at consumerism and blame it, as if consumer greed was allowing poverty, or homelessness to continue? Why do they never look in the mirror? I think we all know why? Liberals expect OTHER people to sacrifice. Liberals expect everyone else to get it done. And of course, Liberals want the government to fix homelessness, and other societal ills, by
“taxing the rich” and spreading the wealth around.

  1. As the ‘old-man’ Republicans—like Smitty and McCain, and perhaps yours—go to the happy hunting grounds, and the last vestiges of rugged individualism begin to wane, I’m sure the problem of homelessness will begin to dissipate, and the real causes of it will begin to be recognized. The US has the greatest incidence of both homelessness and imprisonment in the western industrialized world—it not the world. http://eohw.horus.be/files/freshstart/European%20Journal%20of%20Homelessness/Volume%20Four/article-1.pdf

  2. Regarding previous comment: The word ‘yours’ should be ‘yourself’—thank you.

  3. The leftists are 100% responsible for the homeless problem in this country.
