Hello everyone, how is your day? Are there any specific social services do you believe ought to have more funding or support (i.e drug and alcohol treatment programs, homeless resources (getting skeptical about those after reading some reviews), domestic violence shelters and supports, mental health care programs, supports for the disabled, CPS/Child Welfare and Foster Care etc)? Or would you rather see an increase in private charity rather than social programs?
On one hand, do you think republicans, conservatives and libertarians don’t take into account these issues enough and ought to be more supportive of social services (though not necessarily entitlements)? On the flip-side, do you think democrats, liberals and progressives overcompensate and use the federal government as a bludgeon through ideas like universal health care to meet their goals?
Please keep this thread civil but with candor. I would rather prefer that this thread doesn’t get too many flags, doesn’t alienate people (though I understand politics tends to do that) but see engaging dialogue.
Have a good week.
