  • why doesn't the government sell land to poor people?

    There are some in the nation who are poor through (almost) no fault of their own. True, in every poverty case, the person who is poor has SOME culpability for being poor, but a lot of the time (and I mean this.. a LOT Of the Time) there are factors (egregious ones) beyond that person's control: extreme depression and hopelessness... mental illness (so called), no family structure, abusive or negligent family "structure"... etc.

    And so, there are poor people. Well, maybe if they were allowed to buy land from the gov at very low prices, they could
    1. have a reason to live (if they do not already)
    2. be incentivized to do something with what they have
    3. be given some hope of a better future
    4. make use of land that is currently not being used for anything
    5. etc..

    Christianity clearly states that government aid should only be given to the christian lord god and savior, corrupt wall street executives with lobbyists. You know, the holy job creators, peace and blessings be upon them. And government hand outs.

    You just need to understand that government hand outs are ok if given to the wealthy but not if given to the poor. The poor are poor because they are lazy and worthless. This is the teachings of the one true god, corrupt wall street executives. Never mind those pesky facts about how we gave land to large corporations nearly for free. Never mind the fact we lend money to the banks at 0.75% interest. Never mind the rampant corruption. Being a good christian means supporting the christian god and hating gay people.

      How do you sell something to someone who doesn't have money?

      Why doesn't Rome do it?

      Why don't you?

      So many questions your idiotic non-questions raise. So few answers you provide.

      By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

        Technically, the government doesn't own any land, it only manages land that we the people own, collectively. Likewise, the government doesn't own any of the natural resources on or under the land we own, though it is in charge of managing those for us.

        Unfortunately, as TrakeM has already pointed out, our government is being controlled by "lobbyists", who are essentially just the bag men for very wealthy corporate special interests who use them to dispense legal and illegal bribe money to the member of the Congress and the Senate to give them access to, and control of those collectively owned lands and resources, so they can exploit them for their own economic gain.

        Poor people don't have the money to bribe these legislators, so the legislators will continue to ignore their needs, or desires, and ours, too. Right now, all the decisions our government is making at both the state and the federal level are all being made by these wealthy special interests, through their legalized the bribery of the legislature. And until that changes, no idea, good, bad, or indifferent, will even be considered, unless our lawmakers are told to consider them by their bribe-masters. Which isn't going to happen because their bribe-masters don't care about the poor, or about us, at all. All they care about is making more money for themselves.

          My dream is that some day all the evangelicals will make it clear that they won't tolerate this with the same ferocity that they have voiced on the issue of same-sex marriage. If they do, I think christianity could be a force for good in this world. I think christians would find that they have more allies in the secular world than they think they do. It would be glorious.

          Barring that, my dream is that christianity declines into oblivion and be replaced with actual morals that will push people to stand against this corruption. To be honest I'm thinking it more likely for christianity to decline and be replaced with actual morals than for christians to stand together against corruption the way they do against same-sex marriage. I hope christians will prove me wrong.

            There have been cases of state governments selling large tracts of land to corporations for only a dollar. We're talking about corporations with lobbyists and large donations to political campaigns. That last fact was, I'm sure, completely unrelated and only an irrelevant side note. Never mind the man behind the curtain.

                all poor people have SOME money

                land could be sold for $100 an acre or whatever. Everyone can affor that.. and if they don't have it, a relative or friend would lend it to them.

                  I'm typing on a cell phone. That sentence didn't come out right. Gay people wasn't supposed to be in that sentence. christianity is about serving the wealthy and corrupt and hating gay people.

                    I don't believe that. There are national forests and parks.. etc..

                        Then they should sell it to me for that price too. Why discriminate against me because I have a nice job?
                        Having the right to do something does not automatically make it the right thing to do.

                          It is very difficult for a person with nothing to get.. something. It is not impossible, but extremely difficult.

                          an acre of land is NOT a huge entitlement program. And the gov would get money for it, albeit not a huge amount.. the gov doesn't NEED a huge amount.. it has plenty already..

                          so I guess u would begrudge the homeless anything?

                          figures

                            An acre is more than I have. I worked hard for my 1/4 acre and these poor people would get more?

                              my plan says that is all they get from the gov: cheap land, and no taxes for a year, low taxes after that.

                              I don't think that is unreasonable.

                              ther are some (you?) who just hate the poor, it seems

                              Newsflash: the poor are not poor solely due to their OWN choices
