Just Say No to Socialism

A day in the life of a Tea Partier/Teabagger:

This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US Department of Energy. I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I watched this while eating breakfast of US Department of Agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food and Drug Administration.

At the appropriate time as regulated by the US Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the US Naval Observatory. I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state, and federal departments of transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve bank. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to send via the US Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

After work, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to a house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and fire marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all it's valuables thanks to the local police department.

I then log on to the internet which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration and post on freerepublic.com and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right.

These people are uninformed and dangerous.

Only 30 cents of every dollar goes to the intended recipient while the other 70 cents gets lost in administrative and bureaucratic costs. The Transportation Safety Administration misses 70-80% of their intended targets in anti-terrorism drills, and the most advanced highly-funded military in the world has been getting beaten around by a bunch of local Iraqi and Afghan citizens (who the media someone claims is Al Qaeda or another terrorist group). The department of education’s answer to everything is through more money at struggling schools and the outcome is a lower quality of education. FEMA not only took private firearms away from citizens but kicked people out of their home and displaced thousands of individuals while preventing private charities and businesses from bringing in food and aid to the local people. Government doesn’t work. It doesn’t work because it doesn't have an incentive to like businesses or charities. If the author of this statement appears to be a statist-socialist and that’s fine. You can give every penny you have to the all-powerful omniscience government but the rest of us that don’t have blinders on to the world see the real problem-government.
