Yes, you translated it.Did I translate the Preamble? I just posted it, and offered it as evidence that the purpose of the government was to benefit the American people in a variety of ways beyond what Buck saw as its purpose: to bolster the economy and steer cleat of profit making.
To fit your meaning and to help your cause that the government is supposed to take care of people.
You neglected to acknowledge that the Preamble is speaking about all Americans, not just the Americans in government or in power.
Your "evidence" falls flat because of that.
LOLNanny state? That was the conservative choice. Your nanny is reading your emails. Your nanny wants to restrict reproductive freedom, to tell you what you can smoke, and who you can marry.
The state I would support is the opposite.
They can read my emails if they want, I don't care. If it means a safer America, then let them have at it. They're looking for threats to America and her people, not for "hi mom" emails.
The Nanny State is when the government needs to hold your hand through everything and when you think that's the best way to do it and to impose as many regulations as needed to tell you the best way to live your life.
And of course, they'll need more tax money to do that.
That's YOUR utopian government, not mine.
I got a better idea.If I had my druthers, I would slash your military budget by two thirds, your spying budget by half, eliminate your War on Drugs and Homeland Security Departments, eliminate your farm subsidies and other corporate welfare, and increase spending on ordinary Americans - more low interest school and business loans, better VA benefits, universal health care, double the minimum wage, etc.- and infrastructure. Your government would be about 25-40% of the size it is, and your taxes would plummet.
Is that what you mean by a nanny state?
You consistently trust the wrong people.
How about the goddamned government just stick to the military and police and let the civilians handle their own business.
THAT'S the governments job, not taking care of everybody.
