I Want The Government Out of Everything!

Well, as you can see a lot of people want the government to get out of everything. Obviously, they fail to specify what everything means, if it indeed means anything at all. Let’s see, perhaps they want the government to not regulate the food industry, that way, they can get food poisoning without the government’s help.Perhaps they don’t want to send their kids to schools or colleges where the government provides financial aid and students grants and loans; or maybe they want the government not to fix the roads and highways that allow them to reach their jobs and destinations.

These people are so deluded that they cant really think straight. One guy there screamed freedom!, what freedom is he talking about? What freedom is the government taking away from him by reforming health care? None. Perhaps, the only freedom that they are fighting about is the freedom to manage their own wealth. However, these people most likely want the government to do a lot of things without them having to pay for anything. They probably want the roads and highways to be in a perfect condition so that they can travel smoothly on them, but they don’t want to pay for that. They don’t want to pay for the services that they do want. Probably the only thing that they want the government to do and they would be willing to pay for it is to allow prayers in school, and have the teacher read the bible to children.

If these people are so adamantly defending the “freedoms” that they have, then where were they 8 years ago when The Patriot Act was passed? Where were they when Bush tried to amend the Constitution to ban gay marriage? What has changed in the last 8 years? Oh! that’s right the political party of the person in charge, and the color, we should never forget that Obama isn’t white. It wasn’t fascist for Bush to evesdrop in the conversations of the people, or to know what books you check out from the library; but it is fascist of Obama to do… to do what? OH that’s right to bail out the banks… wait… didn’t Bush bailed out the banks? Oh, I know A.I.G … wait, Bush bailed out A.I.G. I know! the auto industry, that’s what he did, god damned fascist, preventing the auto industry from failing so that thousands of families wouldn’t go without. Damn socialist taking away my freedom to do… my freedom of… not paying taxes… that’s right, that’s the freedom that I want to keep, because I know that the 4th amendment is worth nothing as long as I don’t have to pay taxes and get all the things I want the government to do for me without me paying for it. Obama is both a fascist and socialist… and I think he might be communist too… They all mean the same thing,right?

Thoughts on libertarianism and liberalism.

I think that if we are to become a libertarian society (which is in fact impossible, given that we give up some of our liberty when we are taxed, and when we allow police and armies to exist; by the way I’m not against the Army or the police force, although they do sometimes abuse their power. A libertarian society is one in which people are free to do as they please so long as they do not interfere with my freedom; by having police and armies we are giving up freedom for security, which is why there will never be a completely libertarian society) But if we are to have a more ‘free” society personal choices have to be respected. That is regarding same-sex marriage. Now, regarding abortion, I think that if people use it as a birth-control method just shows a complete lack of personal responsibility and ethics; at the same time, people who are victims of rape should not be forced to have something that they didn’t want to have to begin with. On top of that, I don’t believe gov’t has any right to tell you what to do with your body; which is why I think that Roe v Wade is a sound ruling. Our society has devoted so much energy into fighting and disagreeing with one another, that we have lost sight of the real important issues that are consuming our country. The only way to solve this is not by bickering with the opposite party or completely denying all the things that conservatives or liberals believe in. In fact, our society becomes better when we accept the difference in our society, regardless of beliefs, creeds, political affiliations, and sexual orientation. When we realize that feminist value their reproductive rights as much as Christians value their right to worship, when conservatives recognize that creating massive amounts of debt to give tax cuts to the wealthy doesn’t help the economy, and in fact is irresponsible, that the burden of paying off that massive debt cannot be place upon the backs of the poor, when they realize that foreign policy decisions should be based on facts and not some wishful thinking (Audacity 37). When liberals realized that gov’t sometimes is problem as Reagan so simply stated it, when they realize that abortion should not be a birth-control method, but a last resort option.When we achive that we will finally see past our differences and be able to work and get things working once again.
