Yeah. Here is the rub. This is a bit like the use of the word "but" in a sentence. Just disregard anything that comes before it. "I ma for equal opportunity not equal outcomes but I am going to use all the instruments of governmental power to force you to give me that equal opportunity. And I get to define what that means!"But we also understand that fostering such opportunity requires political will and that sometimes in the real world cooperation works better than competition.
I loathe, the idea of taxing income. That negatively rewards positive behavior with more taxes. You work harder, get paid more, and pay more taxes. In that world, why would anyone want to work harder or improve themselves? That's the fatal flaw in socialism ...it promotes and rewards mediocrity.
Wouldn't you agree?
Not this crap again. Look I saw this coming and police is not welfare nor is it part of a mixed economy. You people are predictable as hell. Please look up the term already.On the one hand, you're proposing a mixed economy (by your definition, a community police force is certainly a socialist organization) but arguing that mixed economies are based on abuse. But that's a point that's almost not worth making, because your ideas are anathema to most Americans, so they will continue to safely exist only in your mind.
And your redirecting crap is annoying as hell to boot.
