Should rich Liberals offer either sleeping arrangements and meals at their residence or rent free studio apartment and food for our homeless citizens? 😳

Sure, and people on the right should take in all pregnant women contemplating abortion and help raise and take care of her and her child...

Yes but that would require them not to be hypocrites, which won’t happen.

Shouldn’t humans in general do this?

My wife and I have adopted three children from foster care. I think we have done our part!

Snotbubble, having children should not be a sacrifice. Donating money to complete strangers who you will never meet is a sacrifice.

You’ve obviously never dealt with foster youth and all the baggage that goes with it...

If you are suggesting that you would be more happy without your kids and to you they are just some charity piece, that is terrible and I hope they never see this. If thats not the case, they are not a sacrifice on your part.

Tradeoffs and sacrifices are 2 much different things. A ferrari is not a sacrifice, even though it will cost you 500k

Again, you obviously have never dealt with foster youth. My kids are not the sacrifice. But all the Doctor, Psychiatrist, counseling sessions, school disciplinary meetings are. My wife and I talk daily how much easier our lives would be if we decided to have biological children. Any adoptive parent who says they never have those thoughts is lying!!

Again, you are trying to force others to do things that only take away from their overall happiness, while you do no such thing, and will do no such thing because of some self righteous excuse.

What am I forcing people to do?

I assume you would be for laws that have the wealthy or just everyone provide housing and food for others, no?

Yes I would. We should provide free housing for the poorest 10% of our society. And there should be free markets where people can get basic items for free. We are the richest and most powerful country ever to exist on this planet. These things are possible. Instead we decide to pocket the richest 10% of this country with billions of dollars. I find that rather embarrassing...

You find it embarrassing that we dont steal money from the people that have made it most possible to have the luxuries that we do? Almost everyone has the ability to produce lots of wealth. Not only are you advocating for taking from others, but the people you want to take from are the only ones who have pulled their own weight. If you want to help the bottom 10%, then you put in the hard work and make smart decisions, you create wealth, and then you give it away. Just don't make others do all of that for you as you just sit back advocating for them to be leeched off of, while you have just as much ability to help.

Oh brother...

Taxes are not stealing.

In a capitalistic society, there will always be a bottom 10% that need help. My opinion is that we are not doing a very good job as a country in taking care of the bottom 10%...

They are only taking money by force. And in any society there will always be a bottom 10%.

The very wealthy have contributed significantly more to helping the bottom 10% than anyone else, however you have just as much an ability to help people at the bottom, yet you push that on people who have already contributed more than you.

They are not taking taxes by force. The most powerful country in the world should do better for their bottom 10% than we are.

Yes taxes are most definitely taken by force. I suggest you try not paying them sometime. And if you want to help the bottom 10%, force or taking money from others is not the answer.
