Here is what I think.
It isn't about feeling, or what is in my heart.
What does the documents created state for outlining such things.
But, they dont state anything about healthcare? Unless I am missing something, which is certainly a possibility.
That said, sticking too much to words that are used can get a bit tricky since they may not have the same confines in other perspectives. In this
case, I would include "feeling" and "what is in your heart" as the same as what you are "thinking."
Every single one is subjective.
Taxes have never really been about "investing" in the people. They started out by funding a basic Fed Govt, who is governed by the Constitution and
BoR. It has turned into what we have today. A method to take from some to give to others so politicians can buy votes.
If the government is not investing taxes back into the society from which it is gathered, then where is it going? What is the purpose
federal government if not to enable a stronger nation? We might have a completely different take on investing, fwiw. Im not talking about stock
No, a lack of morals is the issue.
Without morals, we turn into what we have. A Govt used as the method to "help and care" for people.
That is not what it is there for.
But, with freedom, Morals are not forced as they shouldn't be. If this process was allowed to run its cycle, it would have corrected itself. Instead,
we have intervention from the do-gooders that just want everyone to be happy, except those that must fund the do-good actions. Alas, we have the
Morals are subjective. Government should stick to objective realities. Success should not be judged on whether or not people feel good, or, feel
negative about those who feel good. Success should be judged on several different objectively verifiable items. What these items are is what this is
all about. These items could be considered an investment in a myriad of ways, including return. The issue is that this is only viewed in terms of a
monetary investment, wherein, profit is the one and only goal. If we broaden the scope, however, we can see that such pursuits end up being more
detrimental to a nation than helpful.
The scientific method itself could be of great use here.
Giving something to people that perceive it as free will always breed dependency. And trying to take it away is even worse.
Im not sure you understood what I was getting at... I think that if welfare systems exist at all, the resources and tools should be given out and not
the "end product" (money). They should give people the tools to make a living for themselves, rather than just throw money at the problem. Because,
even for well-meaning people, it is a trap that is extremely difficult to escape.
People want food stamps? Give them the resources to build a greenhouse using aquaponics, as a one time only offer
. Something like this will
make a very quick distinction between those who simply want to make a life for themselves, and those who wish to abuse the system.
So, in this scenario, we have the exact same concept (welfare), but the method
is completely different and it is likely to yield completely
different results. These results could be objectively verified using markers such as economy, education, rate of innovation, etc. Though, the limit
is that we could only compare it to known variables.
I don't need to. I am here to state that the actions are not within the confines of the creating documents.
If the process, the correct process is followed, I would have no issue with any of this. I would quietly leave.
The documents dont state anything whatsoever about the concept, only the method. And we both probably agree the method is horrendous.
Don't really know where you are going with that.
System being the method or system being the agent used?
Asymmetrical warfare discussions may be best saved for another topic.
Dont worry about it. Like I said, I am concerned with this nations defense and success first and foremost. Including scenarios that may or may not
play out, and the governmental systems that could be in place to best cope with any such circumstances.
I do not believe that currently exists, as I feel we are directly witnessing the intentional dismantling of the United States.
