I keep hearing what you are looking for is free food, housing, education, health care, transportation etc . But I want to make sure you realize there is a cost to free stuff. Yes I know you have heard enough about the cost to taxpayers and you probably should care about that but probably dont. However, Im not talking financial costs. Im talking a different type of cost. Let me try to explain in a way everyone can understand. When you live at home with your parents they provided you with the food, housing, transportation, etc . Well your parents being the providers they have/had certain powers over you. Your parents get to pick what you eat because they are the ones buying the food. They get to tell you to clean your room or what time you need to be in because they provide the housing. They can decide where you can go because they provide the transportation. Now if you already dont know where Im going with this, then read the previous paragraph again. When you are dependent on anyone for things you need then you lose your freedoms. Now maybe you still live at home and dont have those freedoms already but your parents will lose theirs and therefore you will be affected through them. If the government provides your food the government can decide what you eat. Sure currently it is done through food stamps and you can purchase pretty much anything. But trust me when I say once government is providing all food that will no longer be the case. Currently they want you to want them providing the food for everyone so they are going to make food assistance as comfortable as possible. But once everyone is dependent of the government providing the food they can start forcing you to only eat food they feel make you healthier. And trust me when I say health food Im not talking expensive health food but cheap healthy food. Now that is the cost Im talking about the cost of your freedoms. I know a lot of you dont realize the control government can take over you because you have been fed lies about how nice it is to live in a country where government provides you what you need. But I assure you they are not free like you are free. They are not free to eat whatever they want. They are not free to go wherever they want to go. They are not free to get whatever health care they want. They are not free to live wherever they want. Just now this truth that when you are dependent on anything or anyone then your life depends on those that provide and they therefore control you.
