Let's say we could take a state and have no Social Security, no Medicare/Medicaid, no highways made from taxes, no public schools, very low taxes. Personal Responsibility as some have said. Do you want to move there?
During a discussion on the Obama health care plan, we veered off a little – surprise – and Critter1982 wrote that government should be there
1. To protect the country from others.
2. To define laws for its citizens so that your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness does not impede on my right.
3. To legislate and define laws so that companies do not restrict my right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
4. Enforce laws that have been set forth
So it got me thinking…wouldn’t it be great to be able to really do the experiment. Let the people who believe show us how it can work. If you feel strongly that the government should not be providing social services like Social Security, health care, public schools, etc., would you be interested in moving to this state? If you want the social services provided by the government, are you interested to see what happens? If it’s successful?
