    Which would you rather have...
    a system where you direct where your moneys goes,and be able to have a vote in every level of government,and have your interests represented directly..n'

    Or-
    a nanny state,to be told,what,where,and how your money goes,what and how you can earn,where it gets redistributed,and a government working unto itself,for its own causes and interests,to be a sheeple without control,only government control?

    Vote and discuss.

    As long as it is a constitutional republic as ours was founded I am good with it. If it is a democracy by mob rule I am not for it.

    Agreedand im not saying mob rule,but responsible voting. My proposals have it,where citizens have final call and say on budgets,there would be no gridlock.people have the right to decide and control where their funds are appropriated.citizen government investment funds,each level of government run like a business,profitable for all citizen investors. I personally dont need the government taking my money,and working its own interests,look at the billions going to the middle east,out of our pockets,without our say.

    This is true taxation without representation,as we had no say in the disbursements,and in a true democracy,we will. Opposite of socialism.

    I dont need a redistribution of funds to causes or other countries without mine,ir any other us citizens say. Seems like both sides are conditioned to need a government to decide for them.a true government leads,and represents the interests of the people,not itself.

    How about a sustainable budget with programs the US can actually afford? You could be harsh, but lets face it, if the US wants to survive as a super power it is going to have to cut programs and increase taxes (or cut programs, and remove powers and responsibilities of the Federal Government). That or the debt will just keep rising, and China will overtake the American economy.

    Here is a revelation for you...if I believed true socialism was a realistic possibility, I would be for it.

    But the fact is, socialism has invariably transformed to totalitarianism.

    Even here in the U.S., as we become more socialistic, the central government takes more and more power from the people and the states and consolidates it with itself.

    Capitalism is not a perfect system, it is merely better than the alternatives.
