Civilization requires government, which requires taxes to fund the enforcement of the laws and regulations, and to fund the providing of services. The clear majority of Americans support this, but we have been told that "we" can't afford it. Aren't we the most affluent nation in the world?
The culture of leaving people to fend for themselves is Evil and must be destroyed. No more "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" fantasies. No more portraying those who want laws and regs and services - aka CIVILIZATION - as terrorists who hate freedom.
America is not Magic. Truth limits freedom.
We don't need Prohibition for guns; we need a culture of truth and greatness to replace the culture of lying, cheating, and stealing.
