We're all in the same boat together -- we're not in particular groups.
||"I simply turn on the Golden EIB Microphone and share my honest passions and beliefs with people.
And they're free to go elsewhere.
They're free to ignore; they're free to believe; they're free to be entertained, I don't care.
They're free to do whatever they want.
But a lot of people aren't free to smoke cigarettes where they want;
they're not free to drink where they want;
they're not free to eat the kind of food they want to eat;
they're not free to eat trans fats;
they're not free to drive certain places.
Pretty soon we're going to be told what kind of cars we have to drive.
I can't cause that.
I can't restrict anybody's freedom.
We've elected a guy who can, does, and wants to, all under the guise of saving us.
So I appreciate the effort, and I appreciate somewhat losing my temper here.
But don't compare me ever to an authoritarian who thinks so little of people that without him they can barely breathe on their own.
Don't ever do that."
LEARN IT, LOVE IT, LIVE IT!
If one cannot understand Rush's words above, then one does not truly understand FREEDOM!
Rush forgot to say that people aren’t free to use recreational drugs, to sell recreational drugs, to sell sexual services, to buy sexual services or to procure lethal drugs to commit suicide. A lot more people would like to have those freedoms than the freedom to eat trans fats.
No. You don’t get it.
I’m not paying for your health care. I’m not paying for your dental care. I’m not paying for your car, your house, your hair appointments.
We’re all not in this together. You posted some statements from Rush Limbaugh which don’t pertain to this thread. Rush is saying we are all free to eat and drink what you want. People are free to listen to him or not.
You seem to be saying that we should all pay for everyone else’s health care. I disagree. We are in particular groups. My group is my family. We have decided to be healthy and thus have lower health care bills. Some others have decided to be unhealthy so they have higher bills. Some others have diseases that will fall on the state to pay. But NOT until after the individual has exhausted their ability to pay.
