Speaking of which, how long have you worked for free?
Let me guess, you would if you didn't have to pay for your home, food, insurance, cable tv, internet, cell phone, vacations, hd televisions,
vehicles, gasoline, electricity and beer?
Sounds to me like if you were handed everything you 'need' for free, you wouldn't have to work at all. Or feel compelled to. So, who would pay for
all that? Other People! Thank God for them.
But what happens when we run out of Other People's money? Who pays for all the "Free" stuff no one should have to pay for?

profit, and efficiency; establishing wasteful, unmotivated govt bureaucrats who can't be fired in charge of 'helping' the population.
Think Department of Motor Vehicles multiplied to the nth power, on heavy narcotic sedation.
That's just a glimpse of the glorious socialist (dis)utopia collectivist dreamers wish to bring to America. It's nearly here already.
I prefer allowing free market competition. This is why Car Insurance is so affordable. Some company somewhere wants your business. Why keep insurance

1. Power and Control. 2. Unsustainability.
Leftists do all they can to hamper the free market, for the ability to declare "See? It doesn't work! Only More Government will solve this!"
In other words, break it and reveal that only by expanding government size, power and cost can this problem be solved. And say it with a straight
face, knowing full well the appalling track record of the solution you're selling.
