1. No, that can't be done. That's what they want, don't you see?
They are trying to make the case to their voters that the Federal government is no good and that privatizing the whole thing, like the Jeb Bush version of FEMA that they're probably all getting shares in, is the answer. The libertarian scheme is to always defund, defraud and illigetimize the role of democratic institutions to force the public to get the necessities of life from corporations and these crooks.
The ones that are always calling all liberal and progressive programs worthless, want to create the perception they are failing. They are suffering, some are failing - but not because they were not worthy. They refuse to admit the good, when for many millions of Americans, they are essential. Some that call themselves left, liberal or progressive and want more, cannot be satisfied, but don't work on keeping those things going - and deny the reallty that over half the population, the net is there.
Certainly, the GOP and libertarians have poisoned the well all they could, but the end result is not socialism or anything egalitarian or any form of freedom or liberty from paying oppressive amounts of money to entities in society. This is the Koch Bros., Grover Nordquist model, to sink the ship of democratic government and make people go begging to the rich, to the church, etc. That is what you are saying when you say don't help them!!
That is the end result of libertarian philosophy. You know some person to help you, you get. You don't, just FOAD. That is what they want us to do in disgust. We can't do that.
