Ok, you all know I'm still upset about the Farmers Market thing, but I just had to share this website I came across this morning.
Government is Good
And just so my left wing, pro-government, I "heart" Obama readers (do I actually have any of those?) know, I did read many of the articles this douchebag (Yes, I allow myself to resort to name calling. Childish, maybe. But I am nothing if not honest) wrote.
And I'm really not sure if the website is a joke or not. If you want a good laugh, or a reason to take a few more ibuprofen this morning, check out this website and please tell me that I'm not the only one who is dumbfounded by what is written in there.
He does make some valid observations, such as, "As seen earlier, most of us would like to increase – not cut – spending on social programs like health care and education." (Notice how nothing is mentioned about improving the existing system or making sure it's being run efficiently, just "lets throw more money at it").
Well, as sad a statement as that is, it is partially true. There are a LOT of people who would like to increase spending on social programs. You know. The ones who would rather sit on their asses instead of working. Would rather accept food stamps than have to spend their own money on food so they can spend it on cigarettes and flat screen TV's or iphones. The ones who want the state to take responsibility (both financially and physically) of their children's meals, health, supervision, educations.
What is troubling is the fact that this man does not even consider the fact that all those social programs have to be paid by someone ELSE. Just because 51% of a group of people demand or vote for more "free stuff" does not make it right. Mob rule is not right.
Or, how about this? That maybe those programs and regulations are Un-Stinking-Constitutional in the first place. By reading some of the articles, I would have to assume that the writer has never even glanced at the Declaration of Independence, The US Constitution or The Bill of Rights.
Government Coercion Can Be Good
Taxes are Good
Why We Need More Government
More Government Does Not Equal Less Freedom
Those are just some of the topics this website has to offer for your reading amusement. There are people out there like this man, pushing this insane agenda, coddling to the leaches of society and telling them that their vote can be bought for the price of a SNAP card.
I'm not an Anarchist. I'm well aware that there are valid reasons for the establishment of a government (passing out free cell phones is definitely not one of them). But this person apparently wants one where we scrap our original document of independence, our original restraints on government and just march all together in ignorant bliss to the drums of the current liberal agenda.
My only regret in having posted this and his website is that I would have contributed to the number of "hits" on his page, thus probably making him erroneously assume that others actually agree with his opinions.
Know thy enemy.
