Why are people against volunteerism? If you want to volunteer to help people you don't know then go for it, why must I have to also? If I volunteer to give money to those I don't know then why must you dictate how much? If you want to keep your money that you earned and use it to take care of yourself and your own, why do I have the right to not allow it and why do I have to hate you for wanting that?

If I volunteer pay to take a toll road to where I go instead of paying for an irrelevant road that takes you to where you want to go then can't I?

Statism is driven by fear.

My only fear is that the human race is not capable of functioning in a system that gives them freedom.

Look how easily they are cowed by the threat of a virus that could run for a hundred years and not kill as many of them as the fascist/socialists/communists have.

Given the choice of freedom or safety, they beg that it be safety.

The statists and socialist dream of utopia but want others to pay for it. In fact, they don't even want to build it even when other's pay for it. It is always someone else who has to pay/do. They want my money to fund the building of free healthcare for all but then they also want me to put on my construction helmet and build it. We have agreed this is why they lost the election, it is because they felt that it was such an obvious done deal that they didn't even go vote since of course, someone else will vote for them. Look at their numbers, they would have won by a landslide if they all voted. No need for voter fraud!

The biggest disconnect I see with American statists is that they don't know what Statism is. They talk about a beautiful while sitting at home and moving cartoon characters around a screen (The Sims?) but have no idea what it is like to actually live in a nanny/police state. There is NOTHING nanny abut it. People in those countries are living hand to mouth. There is no welfare or free-eats. You have to go out every day and find a way to feed yourself.

Do not get lost the intentions of any idea or ideology, look at the results.

WHO are you talking about? You start a thread on volunteerism and then, without any specific platform, just mount a generalization?
So...which people are against volunteerism? Is someone or something preventing people from volunteering? Donating money?
AND how do you know what millions of Americans are doing?

I don't think you understood Clara007. I assume by your avatar with the apron and oven gloves that you do not use any roads, especially not the toll roads since those are for people who need to get to work. If you do get out of the kitchen every once in a while try skipping the daytime soaps and do some reading about the free-market and volunteerism. Smiles.

Clearing throat and spitting up just a bit: The above paragraph does not answer my questions. Toll roads and volunteering? Donating? People who work? Roads? AND..............
VOLUNTEERING?

As long as we're assuming, I assume from your avatar that you have a flag pole up your ass.

Now that was good! Respect!

Clara, I was speaking in general and some people did understand but if you can ask me specific questions, one at a time, I will try to answer.

Some people did understand? What people? The only comments are Lyzza and Clara. There are no "LIKES" on your posts.
I have posed questions. You haven't answered even ONE. Even if you can't multitask, surely you can focus on ONE of the questions....or not.

I cannot see the posts or replies of Lyzza because of the reasons stated in my signature. Ask the one specific question again. And Clara, "LIKES" are meaningless so don't kill yourself over them.
