Really Carol? Let's take a look at some of these ridiculous assertions;Winner in last election?
According to the National Black Republican Association:
Karl Marx - Founding Father of Oppression:
•Right dictated by the state
•Forced wealth re-distribution
•Free speech silenced
•Gun ownership banned
•People fear their government
Loser in last election?
George Washington - Founding Father of Freedom:
•Right granted by God
•Sharing based on love
•Private property rights
•1st Amendment rights
•2nd Amendment rights
•We, the people
•Government fears the people
What rights are being dictated by the state? Rights are dictated by the Constitution.
Forced wealth redistribution? Where? The Ryan budget actually espoused this by policy that would make the rich even richer and cut programs that benefit the middle class and the poor. That's wealth redistribution but in the wrong direction. When Bain shipped Sensata to China they took money out of the pockets of American workers and put it into theirs and got a tax deduction from the rest of us to do it.
The government doesn't run the economy but it does enforce the rules and regulations that make it work for the benefit of all of us.
Just where is mediocrity rewarded?
There are some things that are collectively owned and should like our roads and infrastructure, our public education our public lands and our prisons. None of these should be run for profit and neither should our health care.
Just where has free speech been silenced Carol? The very fact that this right wing site could put out this garbage proves this to be a total lie.
No one is advocating a ban on gun ownership but there needs to be some common sense regulation on who can own a weapon and what kind of weapons are available. 90% of the American people want expanded background checks but the gun manufacturers and their pimps the NRA just want to sell a lot of guns and don't give a damn who they sell them to.
Yes Carol I depend on the government to keep the air I breath and the water I drink clean, I depend on it to enforce rules to keep workplaces safe, to maintain safe roads and bridges and food and drugs that won't make me sick or kill me and yes if I should become unemployed or disabled to make sure I can have at least a basic level of subsistence.
What authoritarian rule? We still have the same system of checks and balances that we had before but being totally abused by the GOP.
Who fears the government except a few delusional conspiracy theory whack jobs.
