I debated with myself to start this thread because I knew very few would make it to the end without making a judgement about my personal
views...suffice to say, more than likely if you guess, you will be wrong. This is my opinion and I went about it in a specific way to get both sides
of the false two party system to think hard (well I tried anyway).
I am a Libertarian with touches of anarchism so based on that…
I’ll be an equal opportunity offender…
You tout small government but plan to create laws and regulations about what people can do with their bodies and who they can marry. I’m sorry
nutjobs…you have to hire people to enforce the ever growing body of “morality” code you want enforced…this position is hypocrisy. You can’t
create new and broad reaching laws and not expect to hire more cops and “officials” to enforce them.
Want small Government? Drop some of the stupid regulations that stop people from earning a living self-employed. You know...the rules and laws your
criminal friends paid you under the table to pass to lower or eliminate their competition.
As far as the poor and the sick and the homeless. Let's be totally honest with ourselves. You really don't want to listen to what Christ had to say.
You would prefer that they all just "go away"...out of site and out of mind...in other words...you wish they would all just die and not be a burden
to you and yours. Let's face it...if our country lost about 100 million people (about a third)...problem solved. Get rid of the poor and the
uneducated and there would be plenty of jobs, homes and food for everyone...right?
Stop the insanity! No one wants to be an unrecognizable face in an endless sea of faces. I am NOT majority…I am not “one of the mob” I am
individuality! The mob must not EVER rule…that is the death of freedom to the few and the one. The “good of the many” is how Liberty is
destroyed to cheers and applause. It must be the rule of law! Law that is equally applied to the rich, the poor, the many, the few and even the
Those of us that call for individual liberty are not heartless bastards! I don’t want to see people homeless or go hungry…I don’t want to see
people sick and unable to get healthcare…but here is the rub. The Government is the single most inefficient executor of services in the world.
Bureaucracy and corruption devour huge amounts of revenue and we end up with a much smaller pool of resources to work with.
Now face the facts. You really just want to take everyone's money, throw it in a pile and divide it up equally...which effectively means everyone
gets to suffer equally...this is not an answer....and you know it. I think you just somehow want to take "everyone else's" money...but not your
own...you somehow think that you will be spared the "equal suffering for all"
I said this earlier and I stand by it. Our problem is we are selfish and greedy. We “could” effectively handle this problem with poverty and
sickness privately through public charities and non-profit organizations…but there is a rub to this as well.
People of both parties are selfish pricks…you won’t give unless someone makes you…the idea of removing it along with taxes is the only way to
get some greedy bastards to let go of a dime. If Uncle Sam did not take it, your selfish ass would not give it. You’d use it to buy some cheap
imported piece of junk you don’t need or buy a bigger McMansion…
I completely understand selfishness…I participate in it myself. Just pointing out the painful truth…the elephant in the room on these types of
discussions that everyone ignores. But that is OK…you have been pre-programmed to be selfish and greedy and demand more for yourself and less for
Few people on either side really and truly care for others…they pretend to either to look good at church on Sunday or to be able to boast at the
museum fundraiser dinners. But it is hollow…face it and move on. I do. I wish I knew how to fix it…but I don’t.
Want to help people really? Get the hell out of their way and let them make their own way they best they can. I don’t care if the sell cheap hot
dogs on the side of the road, distill whiskey or make wine and beer, be a door to door masseuse, be a stripper, a prostitute, grow weed….whatever
they can do to make some money. This will help people far more over quarreling whether or not you can take someone else’s money to accomplish what
someone could do for themselves if you would just shut up and let them.
Rip away at me! I'm good for it!
I believe the answer is pure freedom...people free to do well...people free to do poorly...or somewhere in the middle. People free to live...people
free to die...it's not as complicated as millions of raving lunatics on both sides have made this out to be.
