Common Sense? or Logic?

Are you telling yourself that what you are sure of is "common sense" without making sure that it's logical!?!?!??!?!??

Socialized Services may be related to communism in common sense terms, but being against Socialized Services is about as logical as wanting your heart to stop.

Socialized Services:

School Districts

United States Postal

Fire Departments

Police Departments

Privatized Services:

Health Care

Housing

Transportation (not including roads)

Colleges, Universities, Trade Schools, and Career Institutes

Utilities (Electric, Water, Phone, Gas)

Wouldn't you like to see some of the privatized services turned into socialized services?

Why, when so many services ARE socialized, do so many want to stop the socialization of other things?

If you can afford nice things and don't worry about losing your house, car, family, or LIFE..... Then you should have no say and have NO RIGHT to decide in matters that concern people who can barely afford life.

Update:

if we socialize something, and you "aren't going to be using it"... then you must be rich as heck.... and in that case, you better appreciate that, cause you are 1 in a million.... and the rest of that million is suffering

    The American system is set up to NoT be judgemental!! ~~ Everyone who works in a job for the government is also a "parasite" of sorts, because they get a paycheck from the government... and yes, some government jobs seem and are justified, while others AREN'T !! >Gum-chewing office processors in the welfare office don't always do their jobs either.. and they still get paid $$$$... By the local county or state Government. // Then look at all of there "extras" that get included for our own elected representatives in Wash. D.C. Are they not welfare recipients of a sort too? <Oooh, Yeah - they work so hard.... !! How? many hours was Congess in session this past year of 2007??

    There are certain area where social control or government control is necessary like primary education, health care, police etc. But, if more and more of the services are going to be brought under the category of socialised services, the efficiency might suffer. The private initiative will bring in more money required and the competition will ensure the quality and competence, which in the long run will benefit the society. In an ideal society, there will be a right balance between the two categories.

    I agree with the first part of your rant. But "If you can afford nice things and don't worry about losing your house, car, family, or LIFE..... Then you should have no say and have NO RIGHT to decide in matters that concern people who can barely afford life." is totally out of line. Considering it is those who do not have to use socialized services that are paying for the privelege of others to use them. They have every right to decide.
