Claptrap and bullshit.
"The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time." Thomas Jefferson
To suggest that something is not optional is to suggest that someone does not have the liberty to decline.
The Federal Government isn't your Mommy.

Which is crap. It may have been mediocre crap back in the previous century when most people worked at the same job for their entire lives, but it's absolute crap in the 21st century. The enforcement of crap into required crap is not just crap squared, it's crap cubed.

No it's not and no it doesn't. How in hell can the government ensure anything about the people? The only god damned thing that government cares for is government. There are no philosopher kings, there are no benevolent angels, there are only people who occupy a legal monopoly and want to keep it that way. Government never helps the people and never will help the people. People will only do the minimum things required to retain their positions within government. There is no difference between government and private business other than the former is allowed to have the power of law and the military.

And we all know you worship government and follow notions that are as old (and useless) as Plato's Philosopher Kings from his "Republic." I believe he (as well as myself) wants LIMITED GOVERNMENT. Because, in effect all government is monopoly and all monopolies are inherently bad because they have the means of killing off competition that would force them to become efficient.
The Government is not your Mommy.
It's more of a potential abusive parent, if you let it.
