Actually, we are not "one".
We are a group of individuals who've chosen to abide by laws that will enhance our lives. Allowing us to make choices in the market place and the way we live.
“Government is essentially the negation of liberty.” Mises
So, the more government you have, the less liberty's you have
"Government's existence is to make peaceful human coexistence possible.”
In other words, basically the Commandments - thou shall not steal, thou shall not kill, etc.
Government is NOT mind control, not climate control, not the alleviator of bias and hatred. That's left to the citizens to work together on to alleviate.
Government is NOT a market controller - it does not need to subsidize anything in the market.
Both conservatives and liberals have used the government as a means to force people to do things. Both are wrong.
When both can understand that individual liberty is paramount, that we are not "one" but a group of unique individuals with uniques biases and goals, then the government may get to the point of allowing Americans to be free.
Until both conservatives and liberals stop using the government as a police force. we citizens will always suffer under a tyrannical government.
This ain't the America the founders wanted. This is why the founders entrusted power into the hands of the people. They knew, even back in the 1700's, that government is always power and control hungry.
We citizens, have bought into the concept of socialism, which has caused the cesspool that's Amereeka today.
“Government is essentially the negation of liberty.”
We citizens have freely negated our freedoms
