Oughta be a law

Should everyone have a mandated car, or bus/rail pass?  After all, we no longer live in a world where a person can get by on foot.  Trasportaton is a part of everyday modern  life.  People that refuse to purchase from a government-bailed-out car manufacturer or to buy a monthly public transportation pass just shift the burden of the associated costs onto everybody else.

And what about a food card/stamps?  Eating regularly is now a part of everyday life.  Everyone has to eat. People that refuse to buy a government mandated food card… Back to shifting that burden again.  Pretty much every thing that a person does to get through the day has an associated cost, just like healthcare.  And by not having a mandatory buy-in and a government-mandated minimal expenditure, why, it just shifts the burden of the cost onto someone else. 

Along with your government mandated health insurance, how about your government mandated toothpaste and floss?  And bath soap?  And government-mandated toilet paper (can double as sandpaper).  Can’t have people shifting that burden.

Funny how, the bigger government gets the more things get mandated, except liberty.

    It’s almost as if you can read the Left’s little minds.
