"If a nation expects to be ignorant--and free--in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."---Thomas Jefferson (1816)
You can't be both. You can be ignorant, or you can be free. If you don't know how to pay off $93 Trillion in debt, don't go there. Citizens of Venezuela wanted freebies during times of the "good life." They "elected" a new leader....and got the freebies, but only after the new leader took away their guns. Now they have neither freebies nor freedom.
Anyone advocating Socialism is daft.
