I love this subject. These people ROCK. They have shown that even if they don't have steady income they can survive. It is a triumph, a testament to
the Human will. It's like going camping - for an extended period of time.
Many people choose this lifestyle willingly. Homelessness is Not a terrible shocking thing as the mainstream media and government propaganda make it
out to be. (unless your thrust into it against your will and don't know how to survive it - then it's scary) Much of the time it's simply people who
choose to get out of mainstream society to blaze their own path or they are people going through a period of transition. They are not second class
citizens, they are simply people who don't own established homes.
I believe if you choose to live this way, you should be allowed to no questions asked, provided you remain a law abiding citizen ( no stealing from
others or other crimes) There is problems with mentally ill people who wind up on the streets - those are different and the government should give
proper care to those.
Years ago before I owned my home I choose to leave the city and go someplace I had never been. I got on a bus and for 3 months lives on the streets in
a strange city. I quickly learned there is a lose organization of people who are also living on the streets and they will help you survive. In the
end, that life wasn't one I wanted to sustain. Now, I want to do it again, but smarter this time.. by owning my own house and property far away from
the city ordinances and use solar wind, hydro for power, draw my own water from a well - basically live outside of the Governments rule as my own
person as Free as I could get in the USA.
