Why I'm Not A Socialist

Basically, he’s saying that Barack Obama, Harry Reid, John Boehner, and the rest of them don’t have a clue as to the ordinary goings-on of us average people. That’s probably why they do things like require us to buy toilets that don’t work and light bulbs full of poisonous mercury.

Those in Washington may have the best intentions when they do things like require Americans to purchase health insurance for the very act of breathing, but they fail to see how that will affect the lives of ordinary Americans. Ensconced in their bubbles, they like the idea of ‘helping’ people, so they pass legislation without any idea as to how the majority of us tick. link
At its core, socialism is at least paternalistic and more probably tyrannical. However good the intentions, the road to Hell still leads to Hell.

Socialism's authoritarianism laboring under the handicap of democracy with the effort always under weigh to reduce the handicap.
