Medicare for all sounds great – unless you don’t want it. And would rather not pay for it.
This is the always-unspoken problem with collectivist policies: They include you in – at gunpoint, if it comes down to it. Even if you don’t partake of the “free” whatever it is, they’ll make sure you get – and pay – the bill.
Your “fair share,” as it were.
Collectivism, in other words, requires victims. And you can’t victimize people without force.
These are facts that must be thrown up every time some mewling uplifter eructs about his – or her – “plan” to do X. Ask the uplifter and purveyor of “free” things whether people who aren’t interested in “free” anything can say no, thanks – and won’t have to worry about armed government workers Hut! Hut! Hutting! them for declining to pay for all that “free” stuff they don’t want.
Never let them get away with their Big Rock Candy Mountain schtick. Make them squirm. Make them admit that what they are actually advocating is that certain people be given “free” things paid for by others. Reveal the uplifter for what he – or she – is: A person who “helps” by hurting.
He – or she – is not the person who is “helping” anyone. They are the people ordering others to “help” – at their expense – or else. They are economic chickenhawks, similar to the military species who thrust out their chests and scowl angrily about regime-changing evildoers from behind a podium – or bullet-proof glass.
Never in the face of actual bullets. They are for others to take.
