If the homeless should be REMOVED from the streets, where should we put them?

A gulag

Conservatives would want the states to decide. Red states would likely approve the Gulags, blue states the projects. Since many of them are veterans they should go to veterans homes, but, since so much military allotment is being used to protect the country from dangerous women and children there is likely a shortage of funds for that.

Conservatives do not have any power in California. So what is your complaint.

There are literally thousands of homes in areas that are vacant or run down. If we legalized weed and taxed it, that money could easily cover enough to fix up the houses, get the poor and homeless in them and help them become self-sufficient, either by helping them to get jobs or by getting them the medical/mental health help they need. We would still have money left over to put into schools and adult education.

There are actually many, many, many more times more vacant houses in this country than there are homeless people.

As a society, we could house every single homeless person if we wanted to.

We just choose not to.

So the homeless should fund your drug habit?

Why is there homelessness in cities run by the Democrats.

Because there they will get some kind of services and not none.

Side: A housing project

Move them to liberal elites neighborhoods and require them to put them up at their homes.

I think homeless and starving children that have access to jobs that pay over $1 million a year but are unwilling to work should to go the gulag.

Homelessness on the West Coast is created by Democrats. Legalize weed and tax it. Then rub your hands together and problem solved. I read that in your thread.

The homeless are a result of Progressive political correctness. Have you noticed the terrible problems they are having in the most Liberal State in our Nation... California?

Your bleeding heart amoral culture has created a break down in our family unit, and the very people who were once cared for by family, are now outcast to the streets.

Do you see what happens when you separate our Christian heritage from a Nation? Nah, you are too deceptive to ever admit the truth.

It's impossible for you brainwashed Liberals to be any more blind to your sick no fault ideology.

It's like talking to five year old's listening to your rhetoric.

Let me explain how the Socialist Left operates. They first must create a society of Government dependents, and to do this they must first censor any mention of our Christian heritage and moral responsibility.

Once they have created enough selfish entitled dependents, they create a voting block of dead beats who will elect the Politicians who give them the most free stuff. In California it worked with a Democrat stranglehold on the nation, until the people started moving out from all the homeless on the streets.

Liberalism only works for a time, and then reality steps in. A nation without morals will fall from within!

No sir. The problem is neoliberalism and/or capitalism.

Let me define these for you.

Neoliberalism is basically, you're on your own, but we will take from you as we see fit.

Capitalism is basically, unless you're the capital owner, you get what we decide to give you.

So how does that work vis a vis homelessness?

Neoliberalism is making so that homeless people are responsible for errors made prior to their existence. If you grew up in an unstable home or whatever, there is no government support to help you get on your feet. If your parents were assholes, then you will grow up poor.

That segues into capitalism. If you are poor, entering a capitalist system, you are the most vulnerable. You are the most desperate, most exploitable. People like these don't get to shop around, don't have private safety nets to rely on. And with the absence of public safety nets, its either homelessness or, well homelessness.

Thanks to the leverage given to corporations, most of these desperate people can't afford a place to live even if they do work.

I don't know wtf you people want anymore. Just define what it is that you want that deserves a living wage and lets put that into law.

California does not register in your ranked states. Gavin has solved all the homelessness problems there. I read that in the New York Times.

LOL, deception as always!

We are speaking to homelessness, and you spew poverty rate.

Watch the news and look at the bastion of Liberalism, CALIFORNIA. Look at all the homeless in the streets even though that State has the largest Social network in the nation.

Look at all the people moving out of California to Texas and other States. Why did they choose Texas? They chose a State that was very Conservative! WHY!

I guess they learned how pathetic Liberalism truly is.

IT DOES NOT WORK! IT CAN NEVER WORK! MONEY DOES NOT GROW ON TREES! PEOPLE WILL TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT WHEN CORRUPT POLITICIANS ARE BUYING THEIR VOTES.
