What Would Ron Paul Say.Submitted by sonofLibBerte on Tue, 09/13/2011 - 12:34
I am often entangled in debates with my intellectual, well read, highly educated, and self-proclaimed Socialist friends about the merits of big government and Socialist policies. Health Care, Welfare, Energy Policies, Education, the list goes on. The system under which we live has glorified centralization, globalization, and totalitarian dictates under the cover of well-meaning procreative beneficience (the Czar of all oxymorons, IMO). But how can one explain this? How can the spell be broken, the veil be peeled back to reveal the philosophical common sense answers about how to preserve liberty at no person, group, or population's expense?
The Socialists want lots and lots of government everywhere in every aspect of our commerce and our lives, while the Anarchists want none, the Wild West.
What would Ron Paul say if asked what the role of Government should be, not what the Founders intended for in their era, but in our modern world today with its global commerce and technological complexities?
