It pits the haves against the have nots as it takes wealth from those who earned it, and gives it to those who have not. That isn't charity; it's slavery. It pits special interests against We the People, as special interests use the force of government to ram their agenda down our throats.
The original idea was that we all mind our own business, voting for our own best interest with our dollars every day of the week in a self-regulating free market. The first amendment guaranteed freedom of speech and of the press, so we could freely argue all sides of an issue with no fear of government reprisal.
The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits. -- Thomas JeffersonGovernment provided a minimal set of laws and services to provide for a civil society in which We the People were at liberty to lead our individual lives. It wasn't until the idiotic idea of "social justice" replaced "liberty and justice for all" that we began our downard spiral into oligarchy and strife.
If government were less intrusive, politics would be less divisive. We need an impartial government that once again guarantees liberty and justice for all.
