Whether you believe it or not, I said it and I meant it.
you just try Anarchy for a week or so.
I will take anarchy over tyranny any day.
you really think the world would be better as a medeival society?
because that's what you are proposing, and that leads to Feudalism.
Hmm.... you may want to go get your eyes checked. Not sure where you read that I said we would be better off as a medeival society.
the ultimate end of Conservative thought and Capitalism, in the extreme, is Feudalism.
Free market capitalism is the way to go!
you want slaves, do you?
Are you smoking crack? Where did you get that idea?
that's what happens when the employer picks the wage.
1. a person held in servitude as the chattel of another
2. one that is completely subservient to a dominating influence
In free market capatilism one person is free to set the price he is willing to pay for the service of another while the other person is free to refuse
to work for those wages. That doesn't sound like slavery to me.
Now forcing an employer to have a minimum wage amount for those working under him sounds closer to slavery in my opinion. Telling ppl that they must
pay a federal income tax or they will be jailed sounds a little closer to slavery.
not having a minimum wage is a slippery slope to slavery and indentured servtude.
Actually having a minimum wage is a slippery slope to slavery. Go educate yourself please before you try to come at it from this angle again w/ me.
You are asking the gov't to set the standards in one area, rest assured they are happy to do so because they want you to beg for their help in that
area knowing that it will give them the right to set standards in others.
maybe I'll employ your kids and make them work for pennies a day, 20 hours a day? and toss 'em out the back door when they aren't productive
From your previous and recent posts, I don't doubt you would do this. If it were to happen today though, they could easily shove the finger in your
face and go work somewhere else or for themselves.
By the time they are adults though, I am sure you ppl will have had your way and they will be paying this very price for in not doing so, they could
risk being thrown into jail.
it's not my responsibility.
Way to express the wave of the socialist system that is taking over!! bravo.
Unless you mean that my kids individual welfare is not your responsibility and in that case, I will agree with you 110%. Keep your hands and your
ideas to yourself around them!
By thinking you are somehow separate from reality, that is all of us and your environment, you are being not only childish in your notions, but
also extremely dangerous to society.
Again, I would set down whatever it is you are smoking and really think about what you have said here. You are correct in a sense.. I am dangerous to
"society" because I believe in respecting the individual and the property that belongs to the individual.
but I'm not going to argue with you anymore.
You probably shouldn't since you are either very confused w/ this indoctrination of socialist democracy or it is what you are pushing for in a
country that was not founded on such BS ways of thinking.
you just have it your way with this Anarchy of yours, this statelessness, and see how you like Chinese Rule.
I'll give you $1 to go buy a clue........ how's that for helping my fellow citizens, AND it will be given by me rather than stolen from me.
I have never said that all capitalism and all socialism are right, or wrong.
there must be a balance.
Well, when you ask those in power to set standards for you and to give handouts, there will hardly be a balance. Again, just give it a few years and
then let's talk about how well this worked out for you.
If you don't care for anyone other than just yourself, or just your family, then no one is going to bail you out when you need
Well, I am certainly not going to look to the government to bail me out of any situations bc it always will come with a hardcore price. Study
in fact, if the markets crash, and your job goes away, don't come around my place looking for a job, or looking for a handout, I'll just sit
back and laugh.
I don't even know you. Why would I come to you for a job or a handout.
Way to practice your principles btw.
Oh, and it won't matter soon what you would or wouldn't be giving anyone bc soon your federal gov't, the country to which you are a citizen, will
be dictating all that for you.
do you understand what I'm getting at?
Oh, I am crystal clear on what you are getting at. The sad thing is it is quite obvious you are not. AGain, in a few years you will understand what
you were saying. By then, I am afraid it will be too late though.
just go dig up another 30 quotes.
let Dead People think your thoughts for you.
If you insist!!
(I'll give you a few, but 30 is more than I care to stick up)
Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they
are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice. ~ John Adams
It should be your care, therefore, and mine, to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage; to accelerate and animate their industry
and activity; to excite in them an habitual contempt of meanness, abhorrence of injustice and inhumanity, and an ambition to excel in every capacity,
faculty, and virtue. If we suffer their minds to grovel and creep in infancy, they will grovel all their lives. ~ John Adams
The laws of man may bind him in chains or may put him to death, but they never can make him wise, virtuous, or happy. ~ John Quincy Adams
All might be free if they valued freedom, and defended it as they should.
~ Samuel Adams
The tyranny of a multitude is a multiplied tyranny. ~ Edmund Burke
Driven from every other corner of the earth, freedom of thought and the right of private judgment in matters of conscience, direct their course to
this happy country as their last asylum. ~ Samuel Adams
No government ought to exist for the purpose of checking the prosperity of its people or to allow such a principle in its policy. ~ Edmund Burke
When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself as public property. ~ Thomas Jefferson
