It is not enough for today's population of 309,542,523. More control and organizations is needed.
....More control and more government is NOT needed...
This is one of the reason why I don't like Socialists, and those who claim to "just have some Socialist ideals"... They all want to steer a
country like the United States in the direction of other Socialist dictatorships...
I was born in Cuba, a Socialist/Communist dictatorship whose regime is ALWAYS imposing their ideals on people, and they have gotten good at it since
people are indoctrinated since childhood to believe the "Socialist ideals are the awnser to everything"....
The government of Cuba OWNS EVERYTHING, and meanwhile they do provide "basic shelter", and btw a house in very bad conditions is viewed as "basic
shelter in such countries, they can move your family from the house that belonged to your ancestors, and which your grandfather, or father built with
his own hands simply because a high ranking Communist wants it, or because you have one less family member than another family, hence the other family
gets your house, and your family and you are moved into a smaller house... and of course this is done for "the good of the cause, of
Socialism/Communism, and the good of the nation"....
To the Socialist maniacs this might sound like heaven, but obviously they have not experienced what this is like.
Just like the "Socialist/Communist" regime controls all property, one of the goals of Socialism/Communism is to ban private property, they also
regulate food, and every "basic need". Of course people STILL have to pay for everything, as long as they have money. However, families and
individuals are given a "libreta" (food book) that says what amount of food they can buy, and it is a meager amount, and that is IF there is any to
Socialist ideals go against individualism, and against all forms of spirituality because Socialist ideals put the whole before the individual, and
FORCE individuals to give up their freedoms "for the good of the whole".
We, in the United States, do not need "MORE CONTROL", or "MORE GOVERNMENT"... what we need is for those who are in power to uphold the
Constitution of the United States and to start working for the people like they are supposed to.
If you want more control, and more government I can set you up with my family members who are still living in Cuba to take you in for a time, of
course you will have to pay them, so you can see what your desire for "more control, and more Socialist government" does to the people of such
nations, and what it does to the nation itself...
