i didn't think you was insulting me. i was just confused. funny thing about the english language... its not just a ballet of words to make points. vocal tones and body language occupy the other two thirds of it. lol any ways, my point was not directed initially towards the 14th amendment. it was aimed towards idea regarding whats good for a nation just because it sounds socialist in nature, shouldn't be immediately stricken from the table. i'm going to tell you that by trade i am a machinist. i make precision parts for robotics, aerospace tech, computers, food services, logging industries, so on so forth. the one lesson i was taught that will hold true to the end of time is, "your abilities as a machinist are limited only to your imagination." my instructor at the US army ordnance school for machinists in aberdeen proving grounds maryland, told me this. with this said i'm going to use an example here to explain my point.
no one wants socialised medicine because like in the uk, the gov is forcing a child to die in the hospital and wont let the family remove the child to achieve a professionals second opinion. of course! who would want that? rand paul said if you make healthcare a right, you are conscripting him and others like him into providing a service that voids capitalism all together... but what if by chance, we made healthcare a right? what if we closed down a couple bases we didn't need in countries who aren't paying us to protect them (just like trump said,) bring our brothers and sisters home, and save all that money we are sending to those countries that hated us anyways? we could put that astronomical amount of money towards only allowing the government to write the checks. what if there was another amendment that stated american citizens all have a right to healthcare funded by the federal government to all americans abroad and homeside with the clause that the limit of the governments reach in the matter is simply to process the checks and that's it? going back to rand paul's statement about conscripting him... how would that be? because so long as my doctor where to still want to see me if this hypothetical situation took place, i could still see him. if not, i find a different doctor... after all last i checked i had to fight through the capitalist market in order to achieve my arms and ammunition.... i don't have a direct line to glock forcing them to supply me in arms and ammunition? this is my point that things seemingly socialist need to not be entirely stricken away without thought.
furthermore into the discussion regarding the 14th amendment, sure theres excessive government overreach on, yet a few minor benefits to it. do i agree with people immigrating to the us? absolutely. do i want the immigrants vetted properly before coming into my home? you bet. do i think the immigration system is broke? you bet. there needs to be a better way to get the good hard working law abiding people into this country while keeping the shitty ones out. immigration is what created this country and kept it going in advancement. sure federal oversight needs to be heavily regulated. its in itself a double edged sword. if oregon doesnt want some nuclear power supplier coming in building the next fukushima incident, the federal government should not be able to tell us we have to let them build because its their ultimate say. thats buillshit. but if wyoming sells coal to china, who is oregon to try and stop that? that's where the federal government says no... that's a violation of the free commerce clause leaving oregon open for lawsuit from the state of wyoming. i want to say the road to hell is paved with the best of intentions but more and more with our government, i believe its back door communism that needs to be eradicated. and honestly if we cant come together and all fully be in support of a right that truly benefits us, that has been thought through, that has been so heavily evaluated, we should not be passing half baked amendments that leave our nation vulnerable to ruin. this is where its supposed to be our job to stand up and march together on those who are failing to represent us. we should just continue to do without until we can perfect it. but with that said, the second amendment wasn't wrote with the intention of a nuclear arsenal... liberals can suck my dick. im keeping my AR. and as soon as the m249 full auto comes available for public purchase, you bet i am all over that shit! this is where its supposed to be our job to stand up and march together on those who are failing to represent us.
so with all this, hopefully you understand where i stand. haha
