Meanwhile I find the bubble that declares that there would never be a single charitable organization to help those drug-addicted children if not for the government.
Who said that?
All I'm saying is that some kids fall through, and that is the truth.
I find it bizarre that you think such children would never receive aide from anyone.
When did I ever say that or anything like it?
Be honest, this is nothing more than an ad-hom attempt and phrases like intellectual cowardice reflect no true desire to have dialog.
I'd love to have dialogue, but it's hard to do when people hide behind euphemisms.
The criteria provided made it clear that aid organizations would deny them for some reason and thus the ONLY avenue of help they could seek would be government.
When did I mention aid organizations denying anyone?
How is this any different from today?
Today we have social safety nets that help tens of thousands of people every year. Libertopia does not feature such things.
I assure you that if there were a voucher system my income would be much higher and would be within a purely private system as well.
Private schools already exist, and the teachers in them make less money.
How many communities out there are without the power to do anything?
How about the little satellite towns around where I went to high school in with its inordinate death rate from leukemia because of industry-poisoned water tables and lack of access to quality cancer treatment? Luckily in the late 1990s a cancer treatment facility opened 25 miles away in a town that could actually afford it and that saved a lot of lives, including my wife's cousin who was born with hemophilia and MS, a combination that killed a different cousin 10 years earlier (before the new facility 25 miles away opened) when she was 3.
These people, of course, are dirt poor and work in the dairy industry in Hopkins County, Texas. They are on Medicaid, and Medicaid is the reason that cousin is alive today.
Let the chips fall where they may.
Every coin has two sides.
Says the man who receives stolen money. Fitting, really.
When you receive taxpayer money, it's just fine.
When a poor kid from Hopkins County receives taxpayer money, that's theft.
