The government can always count on the dependency class it has created to keep it in power. The bigger the dependency class the more votes the State will receive to maintain the status quo

Just look at what Rome did with its citizenship laws when its end was coming

What do you mean about Rome and its laws? Could you explain?

If I'm not mistaken, Rome at its end provided all of its citizens with Free entertainment, free plays, and free food to keep them distracted from political issues.

By keeping them dependent, they were able to sustain their political positions. It worked, and this Rome was destroyed from the inside out.

There is a better explanation for crime reduction than abortion. Lead exposure

There is no difference between a welfare queen and Halburton

all entitlements are just subsidies and the dependency class exists when their existences are subsidized

Obviously but isn't it supposed to at least pretend to care about them? Maybe that's soon to be a tradition of the past.

Just taxpayers, not citizens. The two are not the same.

Because the refugees will be used in political games of power. It has nothing to do with wanting to help them. There was another thread on voat which stated that most of them will be send to republican states.

So these refugees are basically just a political tool to get leverage?

What is considered a republican state? And do you have the source for this? I can't find it.

I guess when the governor is a republican. Could have been news, worldnews, whatever or even others. I do not recall.

edit. Googling worked.

Up to the point where the refugees create their own party and vote for them instead. Then you'll see the democrats race to get rid of the refugees.

They'll just take over the Democratic party. Like the Somalis in Minnesota.

They need to become citizens first. They can vote in local elections (Big Ol' WTF?) but not Federal, i.e. Senate, Congress, President etc. They can vote for Mayor. And that panned out wonderful for the City of Bell.

Even in my city of 50,000 people, we have at least a dozen homeless people here.

They aren't alcoholics or drug addicts or lazy bums.. Society just shit on them and no one really cares enough to help them.

Once you hit bottom.. the real bottom where you are wearing rags and have no access to a bathing facility.. you're fucked. You can't get a job because you look like shit. You can't not look like shit because you don't have access to a shower. You can't shower because you don't have a home. You can't have a home because you have no money. You can't have money because you don't have a job.

I agree completely. I think way too many people underestimate how hard it is to get out of that cycle without significant help and resources.

Because they signed the 1951 Refugee Convention.

An increasing number of cities are also criminalizing homelessness The problem is a failure of heart and soul
