Good explanation I will share with some 'moderates' I know...

Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.

Yep.

I guess the bullets I'd be spitting in their general direction would be delivered 'with love, the spirit of kindness, and gentle support for the downtrodden'... :lol:

The UN-Affordable UN-Caring Act up has forced socialism and slavery on the medical professions. As a Pharmacist, neither I nor my fellow Pharmacists have had a pay raise in 3 years. Andrew, AJMD429, can tell you about what has happened to Physicians who did not fall in line. Why should we be punished for all the time and hard work to earn our degrees and get into what were professions which allowed for each person to reach the place they wanted to be? Socialism cannot survive with some being capable of learning, and must punish such learning. We all have different abilities, and Socialism needs everyone to be the same.

Socialism pulls the successful down to the lowest-common-denominator of the lazy.

Capitalism pulls the unsuccessful up to the highest-common-denominator of the productive.

Many years ago...I believe it was in the early 1950's when Great Britain having just come out of WWII was heading full-speed into becoming a Socialist state Winston Churchill observed that "You cannot have Socialism without at some point also having the Gestapo".
There has to be some sort of government agency ready to ENFORCE the new order on a recalcitrant population of freedom loving individuals.
"Secret Police", Gestapo, Cheka, KGB...the sad thing about Socialism is that you can VOTE your way into it...but...you have to SHOOT your way out of it.
