We the people are the government...
We the People of the United States in Order to form a more perfect Union.... Unlike Chine "We the People" formed our government to protect our individual rights.
Individuals with equal rights don't need a bunch of strangers who call themselves government to think for us. We don't need strangers/government to give some of us money with conditions when accepted. That "trade" money for behavior is another deceptive form of state run freedom.
State compulsory education laws are an excellent example how all laws reduce freedom rather than add freedom. Laws and regulations move the United States government closer to Chinese government.
