Income Redistribution

Some people are complaining that the current administration is bent upon “Income Redistribution”.  This is amazingly ignorant.  All government consists of income redistribution.  What is social security, mail service, air traffic control, libraries, medicare, welfare, police and fire protection, and any other government service if not redistributing income?  Yes, it’s usually not done evenly or fairly but how many want to do without these things?  Should people who never fly pay for the ATC or, for that matter, the TSA? (Terminally Stupid Administration)

There are libertarians that can make good arguments for privatization of fire, police, and most government programs.  Privatization will certainly result in for-profit companies providing these services much as health care is today.  But then, what happens to those who cannot afford them?  Should your house burn down because your neighbor cannot or will not pay for fire protection?  Should your neighborhood be overrun with crime because others do not have police protection?  Should your family be exposed to diseases because others do not have proper health care?

What we are hearing is just more right wing-nut posturing and scare tactics.  What’s most disgusting to me is how many people will nod their heads sagely and say “Yes, that’s right,” without giving it one second of thought or even questioning, “Can this be correct?”

Albert Einstein was right when he said, “The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and human stupidity.”

      You are hiding behind a fake email (stan.z.can@googlemail.com) and a spoofed (via Tor) IP.

      Furthermore, You know nothing about communism and I never said anything about moving to Russia (not Russian).
      FYI, there has not been a true communist government anywhere in the world except for a few months after the 1917 Russian revolution. All of the places calling themselves “communist” and “socialist” were really totalitarian governments, often brutal dictatorships, using the terms to conceal what they were really doing.

      If you want to know something about socialism, I suggest you examine some countries such as The Netherlands (where your Tor spoof claims you are) or perhaps Sweden, or even Canada.

      Instead, you behave like the mental and moral coward you are and hide your ID and location to spout ignorant nonsense. If you have to hide who you are when you are doing something, perhaps even you know it is wrong to do it.
