Caveat Lectores on Socialism

All this talk about socialist inspired health care has caused me to rethink my views on other forms of socialism and how they affect the cost of government and our individual freedoms.

If we abort our dependence on socialist programs and revert to a more capitalist economic model, we can save a bundle in taxes.

Just think how much we can save on taxes if we do away with services that are controlled by the government and paid for by all but used only by a few. These services can be supplied by the private sector at a reasonable cost to only those who will to pay for what they get. No more freeloaders and no more government bureaucracies to get in the way of free enterprise. That way the worthy get the service and all at a profit for the vendors. The others can just do without. If I am so smart, why didn’t I think of this before.

Here is my list in no particular order: Fire/Rescue, Law Enforcement, Public Schools, Public Roads, Social Security, Public Welfare, Public Pensions, Public Water Supply and Waste Disposal, Public Libraries, Public Hospitals, Armed Forces, Medicare and Medicaid.

Now that I think of it, maybe the list is too long for me to finish. Maybe you can add a few. And Oh yes, have a nice day!
