To Socialize....Or Not To Socialize...That Is The Question

It's interesting; when you analyze many issues that govern our lives..it comes down to:

Whether the government has too much regulation...or not enough. I have found, generally, that the policies that do not promote fairness are either.......not socialized ...and should be...or are socialized...and shouldn't be.

My list of areas that ARE socialized governmentally...or corporately..and should NOT be...

1) Education...it could be strongly argued ; there would be a better outcome if schools were private ...and not an entitlement..

2) Radio and TV is a form of corporate socialism...subsidized by tax credits and insulting advertising.

3) Border Patrol should be paid for with crossing fees. Why should taxpayers foot that bill?

4) Farm, oil subsidies, and other corporate welfare should cease

My list of areas that are NOT socialized and SHOULD be..

1) The cost and rental of real estate should be regulated and progressively taxed to curb spiraling ...market based... unsustainable prices.

2) Health care costs...could be covered by progressive taxes...instead of insurance cartels....that price for profit...

3) Food pricing should be regulated to match...the realities of poverty and waste

4) Transportation should be heavily subsidized or outright owned by the State..Private enterprise has failed just as miserably to address this issue and others...

It's past time for more people with ears to hear.... that.. It's not about labels.....It's about whether it works better for everyone overall or whether it is the disgraceful status quo.
