To The Daily: Government not only has its greedy hands in our medical care facilities and insurance companies, but to add insult to injury, its hands are in nearly every aspect of our daily lives. How unfortunate! This certainly is not the way our founding fathers envisioned America. To quote Thomas Jefferson, "I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." This is a powerful statement, and even though it was written more than 200 years ago, it is still remarkably pertinent today.
As long as there are decent people with values, a good work ethic and integrity, socialistic ideas will never be accepted. With regard to those individuals who feel the government should take care of their every need, please move out of the U.S. There are places that will gladly welcome your ideas, like Germany, France, Italy, etc. Furthermore, words like "socialism," "liberal" or "progressive" are just other terms for communism. How sad it is to realize there are those who cannot seem to manage on their own without assistance from the federal government. And I am not talking about legitimately needy people, like those who have actually worked the majority of their lives, paid into the Social Security system, who are elderly or sick, and can afford either prescriptions or food. I'm talking about a class of individuals who are too lazy to work, families that have lived for decades on welfare and food stamps with an attitude of, "If it was good enough for grandpa, it's good enough for me." Simply put, those who want something for nothing, and we all know nothing is free. They want to sit back, fat, dumb and happy, while the government baby sits them.
People the government is taking care of shouldn't have a vote in this election. Furthermore, they don't deserve to vote or to even express an opinion. Ronald Reagan said the scariest words that could be uttered are, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you."
