Those nanny laws are required because too many folks want to sue people for very easily avoidable incidents. Until we fix the legal system to include common sense those laws will be necessary.Nanny laws differ slightly from moral laws in that they include things like mandatory seat belts or gun control....
No trial would mean no judicial review, which guarantees massive abuse and corruption, contrary to what a democratic republic is supposed to represent...
Authority can't come from the barrel of a gun because then you can't make murder illegal. Murder is exactly what might makes rights results in. ..
It does matter how self sufficiency is achieved.
If it is inherited, then it is against the egalitarianism that a democratic republic requires.
If you do not have equality of opportunity from birth, then you have just an oligarchy, not a democratic republic.
No one is sucking on the public teat except civil servants.
There really is only welfare for single women with dependent children, or the disabled.
Essentially there is no other means of living off welfare, in the US.
The US has the lowest social services funding in almost the whole civilized world.
No trial means no wasted time or money on obviously Guilty individuals who the courts refuse to permanently remove from Society. Who ever said I was in favor of a Democratic Republic form of Government?
Show me what a Man is willing to kill/die for and I’ll show you what he cares about. That which he will not kill/die for, he cares not about.
Equality of opportunity is a farce and always will be. Generally because of the mistakes of the parents. Again, I don’t believe a Democratic Republic is the Right form of Government.
I agree probably 90% of Government jobs need to go away. However, so do 95% of the benefits paid out by this Government to non-veterans. Most of those benefits go to people who got themselves in their own troubles... therefore they should not be eligible for any assistance.
We may have the lowest social funding. Excellent. Now cut almost all of the rest of it and we’ll be where we should be.
