In response to a very long comment aimed at “Why I could not be President” some very good questions were asked. I will do my best to answer them. The very first question was of course, unwed mothers. The facts are we might want to keep our cloths on more and our legs closed more; believe it or not, this will help reduce the chances of becoming a mother who cannot afford their children. If you cannot afford to raise a child on your own, don’t have one.

The comment also addressed elderly healthcare, homeless and mentally challenged individuals. Since Social Security began, the American people have all but stopped saving for their retirement. The ability to purchase major healthcare coverage is all but gone since Medicare/ Medicaid. You could purchase a supplemental insurance plan but if you are over 60, the ability to have all of your insurance needs covered by purchasing insurance is gone. This is a direct result of a socialist program, like all socialist programs, the people become addicted, dependant and accustomed to the program and the free markets fall out of existence.

The comment also addressed taxes, stating that the top two percent pay the lowest taxes. This is not true, since the top 10% of income earners pay 71% of all federal taxes.

In America, we currently are second only to Japan in tax rates. This means that when a company is looking for a place to open shop, they look at us last because of our tax policies. By 2049, the entitlements (socialist programs) will consume all tax revenues. This means we will not have enough to turn the street lights on, garbage pickup and the White House will not be allowed to have electricity. Without taxes to run the country, nothing can run. Your socialist programs will in fact convert the United States into Greece or even worse, Russia.

The comment also stated that an involved government is necessary. This could not be further from the truth. Since allowing failed business to remain in business, we have only prolonged the inevitable outcome. Keeping a sinking ship afloat can only be achieved for a short term before either the pumps stop pumping or the water comes in faster than the pumps can pump. Meaning, these companies will fail again down the line and will cause an even worse outcome than this time. The free markets are supposed to work like this,

“Company A charges too much and does not provide the service you expect, company B charges less and provides a better service. So you leave company A and go to company B. Once company A notices their business is going down, they lower the prices and improve service to stay competitive.” But since America has become socialist in nature, we believe it is the government’s responsibility to regulate them. Just like healthcare, since we are not paying the majority of the bill, a third payer system generates higher prices and poorer service. The free markets work because you and I make it work. We supply the purchasing powers; we demand the level of service. But since we are socialist in nature now, government does it for us and we see the results.

The comment also states that the American people are not fit to fend for themselves, I can agree there. Since the last 4 generations have lived under a semi-socialist government structure, America is no longer the power house it once was. The public school system is ranked below third world countries and the people are totally dependent on someone else providing for them. Americans are not capable of providing for themselves because they believe it is the rich who should do it for them.

I have provided this comment for all to see, exactly what the mentality is of a socialist. I have posted this rebuttal in an effort to illustrate exactly why America cannot survive under its current path.
