My views are very simple. I think that people should be left to their own things except for the following that should be the responsibility of the governement: - Military, defense and police: Leaving these to the individuals would lead to chaos and invasion. - Education: When you leave education in the hands of the public, it leads to what happened in the USA where schools are putting people in economic slavery for most of their lives through insane loans they are forced to take. - Health: everyone should be able to get medical help without having to worry about going bankrupt. - Public services such as roads, powergrid, water, etc: Left in the hands in companies this could lead to serious problems. For everything else, I am for a free market... a true one, not like the one we have now where banks are bailed out when they make stupid gambles. If a company can't survive, let it die. The more effective companies with soak up the clients and employees and the whole will improve. My politics are right of center. I am just not a far right guy like most republicans. I am not a leftist either because I think in general the government is very ineffective at doing anything. It always cost more and is done slower because of all the bureaucracy. The items I think the government should handle are for reason of it being impossible to do it in private hands and be fair to the population. I am curious to see what your views are in general. This is a good debate, I love it.
