The world that you desire is not going to happen. We are a "big government" nation and will stay that way. Your flustrations will grow over time until you stroke out unless you get a hobby, look at the flowers, etc. Be at peace.
This is how folks with no information back up all their allegations, with feelings. The post of a spineless individual unwilling to believe you can change the world if you work hard enough. So fooled because he is incapable of defiance, or rubbing someone the wrong way, he willingly accepts any kumbaya stance because to do otherwise would be to question something and possibly have to make a hard decision.
Well I will break alot of this down, the way I see it majority of the time.
A conservative walks by a village sees 10 men catching fish he thinks, great, hard workers providing.
A liberal comes, sees the same men and convinces them they only need these fish, the extra these men catch can be taking to feed other men. So they take them.
When the conservative comes back around he now sees 30 men here but only 10 working. When asked the conservative gets told why should these men work when these men over hear can catch everything they all need.
In response the conservative says but with all of you working you can catch even more fish in an even shorter amount of time.
The 20 men respond, we get fish either way whether we work or not.
The ability to feel if an idea is good and the ability to understand if the idea is good are two distinct things.
P.S. For the liberals on board here let me ask. What do you see wrong with the story above, where do you think it is leading. I will tell you, the 10 men then become slaves to the system, and the 20 will never relinquish the power they have gained. In time it will be taking back by force, and not by someone who is just content with his blessings.
