States rights are great, but people's rights are better.
One of the big problems in the world in the increasingly large piece of the economic pie that people seem to think government (of any kind) should be
When you get to things like Medicare, things can really go of the rails. Would the states do it better? Probably not. At least, not significantly
better. Because the question shouldn't be about "which government" should be competing, and squeezing out private alternatives, it should be about
retiring as much government as we can!
They don't need to be the strong-arm on the block, the biggest source of "demand" for anything. They simply need to ensure that the laws are
observed, that basic national defense needs are met, and that the "other" big guys (corporations) are kept under appropriate control.
Other than that, government is worthless.
We wonder why the past is better than the present? We wonder why we go to the post office, and one lonely clerk is trying to service a huge line of
people (even though there is major unemployment). We wonder why doctors, and dentists, are going out of private practice, and joining the "clinic"
mob. Government. They're TOO FRIGGIN' BIG!! Yes, they can bully all of us right out of business!! But then what do we have?
Do we care how good it is to have the red-haired bully, over the blonde one?
Let us remember, not so long ago, when there were enough clerks at the post office. When we could go to the dentist, and not have the "clinic"
mentality assault us (as well as common sense).
THE FUTURE IS NOW!
Did you lose a filling? Well, here's how it works. First, we check your mouth. You get a "reduced" fee of only $20! No, sorry, can't do your
filling just yet. We verified, yes, you lost your filling!
Next, we order a full x-ray, status check. Yes, sorry you had to wait a couple weeks. Can't fix your filling yet, your mouth needs a cleaning!
Four quadrants! Four MONTHS to wait. Don't worry! Reduced fees.
Oh. So sorry, your old tooth fell apart while waiting these five months to get your filling. You should have had that re-filled ASAP!
Now you will have to get a root canal, a bridge, etc. Don't worry! Reduced fees! See you next month!!!
Screw this communist friggin' future. And no, the answer isn't "states", it's plain old FREEDOM.
