Do you think a government should provide food, shelter & health care for all its citizens?

I think there should be a MINIMUM level that the government should allow you to fall. People should not starve to death and rot in the streets. A Society that can afford to shoot billions into space doing NASA research and hand BILLIONS out in foreign aid to other countries, should not allow anyone to starve in the streets. Jesus said, "You were hungry and I fed you, you were cold and I clothed you". Health care is in everyone's interest. You do not want to be selfish and ironically have a city full of poor people around getting the plague. So there should be some minimum level of health care at least. If you have the imagination of someone smart, like baptised Jew Disraeli, you should be able to have the pronoia or foresight to look down the road at least five years. Republicans who for generations have had Mexicans pick their crops, work their construction, care for their lawns and gardens, cook for them and do their child care, may want to think about rejecting ten year olds at the Border who will be fifteen in five years. I have the imagination to sort them out now, when they are making themselves available for free, because the young good ones could be trained up for service and citizenship, the good adults could be registered and start paying taxes now, and the bas ones like the machete gangs would be better interned in concentration camps now for under a hundred dollars apiece rather than spending thousands bringing each one down in warfare. Before the gang members can kill us or come back as soldiers, we could intern them, harvest them for organs and connective tissue, and inter them now cheaply. You have to have Imagination.

Yes. That's what any responsible government would do, provide for the governed. It's a more responsible use of tax money, unlike unnecessary wars and a wall.

Sure. We have unlimited financial resources. Trillions upon trillions of dollars. No problem.

Only the ones in need of it.

No. I think government should play a big part in making these things available and affordable to the average working person.

Yes. Those are the most expensive things a person NEEDS to pay for. People should not be forced to pay for those just because they were born. They didn't consent to live in this world.

No. I think it should build roads, schools, police, fire, universities, that sort of thing. Anything more is shifting wealth from winners to lazy losers.
