Why do I have to pay for food?

I just don't get it. Food is a basic need, right? So doesn't everyone have the right to eat as well as the next person? No one should eat better than anyone else, regardless of how hard they work, right?

Or maybe we should all just never be given our own money. . .after all, we could just pay 100% in taxes, and then the bureaucrats on Corruptable Hill can make sure everyone can have just what they need.

Sound good?

  • I get what the OP is saying. That is the arguement used for healthcare. And the idea is socialist in nature which again is probably the point. Many on here who are liberal probably would give up their paycheck so they did not have to think. It is really sad.
