In your opinion Special (and not that I don't agree), but others may not. Who's to say your way of thinking and mine is correct, and should be the law of the land? Let me guess, your pocket sized Constitution? I think there are things that conservatives would like restricted that can/do help ppl, including paid HC, S8H, HS.

There is a difference between a city/town/state taking on the responsibility of social programs with taxes and levies and a FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MANDATING. Local municipalities VOTE to maintain those programs. The beauty of this nation~ If you don't like how one state is operating, YOU have the freedom to find new opportunities and MOVE.. Look at California. People do NOT like the way Cali is broke. Look at all of their social programs. They are broke=PEOPLE ARE LEAVING.. A NATION that has social programs? Name one social program that is working successfully /financially in EVERY city of EVERY state in this nation and we can discuss that program first.

Some of us, even those who have never relied on anyone else and likely never will, appreciate that for SOME a welfare check is just as useful and needed as a library, DESPITE THE FACT THAT WE WILL LIKELY NEVER BEEN ON THE RECEIVING END. How come ppl can not accept that everyone has DIFFERENT NEEDS? FWIW, I think libraries could easily reduce service hours. Yes, EVEN MORE .Research can be done is so many other places. Go to bookstores, and watch the # of ppl just researching. What about the Internet or University libraries (Yes, many are open to the public)? For more recent events, what a primary source interview?

In many countries socialism is beneficial to the people or proletariat the Norwegian social model for instance has been extremely successful yet when it turns to communism it is realized that this Utopian idea is difficult to apply without resulting chaos N. Korea for example, Just be grateful that although we are a capitalist state run by bourgeoisiepigs we still have liberty and access to government help . Libertarianism will never work nor will Marxism but institutions such as libraries and public schools and social security are essential to civilization.
