I don't align myself with anyone. You people did.

"Posting in Politics IS an indicator of senility. I feel like an idiot for posting in there. I must be losing it too."

I said "As much as possible." I've never railed against things like emergency and municipal services.

I'm not some kind of utopian. I'm realistic. I understand we need government. I simply wish to minimize it wherever practical.

"... I prefer people to be left alone as much as possible. "

But if your house is on fire, you probably don't want to be left alone. Or if you've been in an auto accident. Or if your wallet has been stolen in a distant city.

And if you wish the potholes on the road would be fixed, you don't wish that no one would pick up the phone when you call about it. Or if your neighbor is shooting bullets across your property.

Government does literally thousands of things for you every day, and you may not think of them very often. People without government certainly notice when the power goes off frequently, when the water is bad, etc, etc

You all are giving Gusher way to much attention. He sounds a lot like PP to me.

I think you're late to the party, NK. Gusher is most certainly not a conservative.

However, I'd scroll down and read through what he's writing before you choose to align yourself with him.

btw I wasn't debating the virtues of your values, per se. I was just stating that as a general matter of principle, I prefer people to be left alone as much as possible.

"I doubt many people feel they're more "controlled" by having health care, or a better wage, or affordable housing, or justice and equal rights for all. In fact, the reverse is true."

You're not controlling those people, except for the ones whose health care you're controlling. Which is now almost everyone. You're controlling those who are being forced to pay for it all. You're confusing security with freedom. My cat might be the most secure creature on the planet, and while content with her security, she is by no means free.

"justice and equal rights for all" - I said nothing against that.

"Most progressivist policies are about placing MORE controls over people, such as universal health care, wage controls, public housing, "social justice", steeply escalating taxes,.."

I doubt many people feel they're more "controlled" by having health care, or a better wage, or affordable housing, or justice and equal rights for all. In fact, the reverse is true. Even if nobody makes an immediate profit by these policies, they're good for sustainability.

If the rich are getting richer -- talking income disparity here -- why shouldn't they help the people who are working for them and making them rich? Why shouldn't they help finance the government commensurate with the government's facilitating their fortunes?

Whatever shortcomings the Govt would have in administering such fairness, it's leagues better than business would do. That, in fact, is a laughable concept, and one which has been abandoned everywhere.
