Republicans think God is Government. Democrats think Government is God.Submitted by RobHino on Sat, 12/01/2012 - 15:38
After seeing that I had this epiphany:
Republicans think God is Government. Democrats think Government is God.
This is what I reposted on my FB page along with that image.
Geees...I see government as force and as a road-block. Liberals see government as ___________. Seriously, do people think that these things would not exist without government? Good drainage exists because of government? Trade happens only through government? Criminals don't attack you randomly because of police? Learning only happens through government institutions? Government invented roads? This is the problem... Liberals (and many Conservatives) think that it is ONLY through government forces, regulations, and programs that we're able to have innovation, peace, and basic services and infrastructure. This is a complete lie and only goes to justify their existance. The fact is roads existed before governments. Learning thrived before governments. Sewer systems and the idea of drainage predates government. And governments rarely bring peace...people do. We libertarians believe in society and working together. We see a clear benefit in working with communities. What we're against is the idea that society and communities are the same thing as government. We're against the idea that societies and communties can't exist without government as we know it. We believe that it is never okay for 51% of the population to tyrannize the other 49%. The only type of contract that is moral is one that is mutually accepted by both parties without coersion. Study mutual aid societies and voluntarism.
