The Freedom To Not Be Free


Collectivism: The principles or system of ownership and control of the means of production and distribution by the people collectively, usually under the supervision of a government. – Dictionary.com

Please tell me, how and why collectivist thought, collectivist government and a collectivist mindset in society will help us? The democrats would prefer a government that provides its people, and slowly but surly the people are loosing their privilege to provide for their government.

What kind of government do collectivist people want? They want a government that will give, give, give, and give more. They want a government that will hold your hand and take you through your ordinary life and give you money, while you work to make money at your ordinary job and tell you how to be an ordinary citizen. Moreover tell you that you have to be an ordinary citizen! How can I stand for this? How can I stand to be put down by the people that are currently running for office? How can I stand to be told by Barrack Obama or Hillary Clinton that I need not worry anymore? Because I will have free health care? Because I will have better schools to send my future children to? All I really want is for people to have a choice! A choice as to where they will send their children to school, via a voucher system and smaller school districts. A way for people to work hard and provide themselves with good healthcare that they deserve rather than some razor thin plan that the government hands out to every citizen, while at the same time robbing the people that no longer need their help. How does it make sense to punish the citizens of the nation that do well by stealing their money? And for what reason on earth would I desire to move up in the United States if I have no need to? The fact is you can hang around on the bottom while the government gives you everything that you need.

Socialism:
1.a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
3.(in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles.

An economic system in which the production and distribution of goods are controlled substantially by the government rather than by private enterprise, and in which cooperation rather than competition guides economic activity.

The ideas put forth from the Democrats seem nice at first. You will have an easier life. Here is what you will really have. You will have the freedom to be free from some of life’s responsibility, I personally do not want that. And I’ll say flat out I am one of the people that would benefit greatly from these programs that they vouch for. I would get free healthcare, but that doesn’t mean that it will be good healthcare. Just cause its free doesn’t mean that it is good, remember that. I will also be looking at higher taxes if I ever get to the point that I am making a better living than I am now. John Kennedy’s famous quote “ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country“ is amazing. Please read that question a lot of times. When people are demanding universal healthcare, who is going to provide that? The government. In this situation are you asking yourself that famous question? Obviously not.

Republic-
1.a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them. -Dictionary.com

The United States of America is a Republic and the power lies in the hands of the citizens not collectively, but on the basis that every American can think for him or herself, work for him or herself, and vote for who represents them, because of liberty not based on the fact that they are equal to each other.
