“Allow people a help up, not a hand out. Teach people to become self-sufficient, in a caring and loving environment. Get help for those with mental health conditions, and drug problems. Prevention programs to keep kids and people off drugs in the first place. Of course, if someone is disabled, teach them skills to enable them to work and a contributing member of society. ”
“We are what our environment is. Keep it in good working order, prevent major repairs, and prioritize spending in a thoughtful and mindful manner to keep costs down. Get rid of duplicity in government agencies. Slim things down and enable the programs left to be lean, mean, productive machines! Put people to work, good paying jobs that are kept efficient and use cost effective work forces.”
