So today I would like to look at two of our Skewed Socialism Programs.
I thought of this because a person posted that they demand we pay for college, and I wanted to attack them, but then I realized, what good what that do? And why should I bully someone for having a different opinion than me?
But I did think: Why is it that we demand for Free Healthcare and Free school…But never demand for free healthy food and free vitamins? And for that matter: Why don’t we ever demand for: Freedom of controlling our own bodies? (Sometimes we do, but for every step we take toward owning our own body, we take a step back. And when I say: Own our own bodies, I mean exactly that, not any abstract philosophical argument over production from our body. I mean the right what to put in or NOT put in our bodies)
Back to the Skewed Socialism in America which consist of the government blackmailing us and already rich companies getting richer at the Taxpayers expense.
Social Security is funded by the taxpayers, it is our money, and depending on which website you look at, we either have the money in a trust, or it has been robbed. Either way it doesn’t really matter because it is always used as Blackmail by our government to raise the debt ceiling. Let us put it this way: (Fiction) I have a child. That child pays in 50.00 every month until they are 17. The account (keeping it simple by not having interest) has 10,200.00 in it. The 17 year old wants to buy a car. I allow them to buy a car on payments. I pay, using their fund 10,200.00, a monthly amount of 300.00, but every month I tell them that sorry, unless your father raises my allowance, I will not be able to pay your car payment.
Skewed Socialism: Or as I like to call it: American Socialism or US Socialism
The Affordable Health Care Act is a show in something very sinister in OUR, the USA, form of Socialism. Seriously. If this act is for and by the people, as the philosophical motto of Socialism dictates…Then why are the following things happening or not happening:
Why is the average man forced to pay for healthcare as a right for others, when the insurance companies get to still make a profit of 20%, Doctors still make a profit, big pharma makes HUGE profits. Why? Well you will hear the rhetoric of Capitalism: Profit drives ingenuity. Even if you believe that (Which I half do…I’ll explain this when I give my Flower Seed Story) How does this justify insurance companies still being allowed to make a profit? They don’t create anything.
Also, why do we, the taxpayers give 30.3 Billion dollars a year on medical research, but still have to pay a premium price for the inventions under these monies? If a company gets 25% of its funding for a particular medication, shouldn’t 25% of the profits be funneled back to the taxpayers? (Information on this type of funding can be found here: http://undsci.berkeley.edu/article/who_pays)
Also, ask yourself this: Why is it that healthcare will cover the cost of psychiatric drugs, but you have to plead and beg to get a few sessions with a psychiatrist? Who does this benefit? While we can argue about drugs all day long the stark fact is this: A victim of rape or sexual abuse needs therapy, but instead, because of the way that our Socialistic System is set up, they only get drugs. And what about a depressed teenager? Do we even stop to ask why he is depressed? What if he can’t handle the pressures at school or the bullies, what can he do?
To the people in America demanding for more Socialism, do you understand that unless we fix our government and our current Socialism programs, each time we pass a new policy of Socialism, we are only helping those in power steal more of our money, and they don’t care, do they, why should they, when the boat sinks they will have enough money to jump ship while us peasants are left locked on the bottom level.
More questions you need to ask yourself before crying about not being able to afford college, which you could, if you went to a small community college (here is a sample: http://www.bestvalueschools.com/most-affordable-small-colleges-america-2015/)
Why are textbooks so Expensive?
Why is Public Grade School so Expensive? (We are at about 10,000 per student)
Why has the cost gone from 25 Billion in 1965 (adjusted for inflation) to more than 108 Billion in 2002 and yet we are Lagging behind more now than ever?
Where does the money for Public Education go? (Here is an interesting article giving some startling answers: http://dailyhaymaker.com/?p=6328
What is a University paying for with your tuition money?
Shouldn’t we fix the broken system first before giving the same system even more power? You cannot move forward if you do not fix what is broken first. Our system is broken. Our children are graduating from school unprepared for even college, let alone the real world. Our children are sick. 1 in 4 children will go to bed hungry tonight. Mental health is nothing more than medications and we are losing our freedom to even decide what kind of treatment we want or don’t want. Giving this broken system more power terrifies me. And people are acting like voting for a president is like voting for a KING.

Now what do I believe: That will have to be another post as I have been working on a Balance of Freedom and Unity, Autonomy and Sociopathic People, Giving and Manipulation.
As always, have a beautiful day. Oh and remember, I added a Feed, which will work much like a Social Websites News Feed. I was sick of my posts being buried, so I am going to post them on my website.
