I do not understand why someone would prefer a bloated government with elites and bureaucrats at the top deciding what is fair for the rest of us. A government which decrees how much it should take from the rich (who gets to decide what is rich?) and give to the poor (again, who decides?). Our country was founded on the principles of freedom to allow individuals to choose how they want to live their lives. We have the God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. All of us.
