I've been thinking about freedom, in part because of the new 'affordable care act' that is coming to fruition in the states. The very name of the act is a joke as we all know that medical health care insurance is about to skyrocket in the States. I mean, name me one Government program that is run more efficiently than an equal in the private sector? My freedom to decide if I want to have health insurance is no longer an option. I either have to get it or pay a fine and now my payment will, in part, pay for yours, if you are one the those that pays no taxes. That isn't freedom. To be honest, I don't like being told what to do when it comes to Washington bureaucrats making decisions that they themselves refuse to live by.
Yet, I have chosen to live a life in which I have revoked my freedom by living in obedience to Katie. Now granted, she does not rule me with an iron hand. In fact she rules with a gentle gracefulness with her decisions are very much dependent on how I will be affected. We had a discussion today regarding whether or not she should offer to work a half-day this weekend. She wanted my opinion and I told her I really don't care. Yet she is concerned with what I will be doing while she is off working. I have lots to fill my time with. Yet, she is anxious about making this decision because it will infringe on our weekend together.
What to I wish? I wish she'd just make the decision that would best suit her. I'm pretty adaptable and will work around her schedule. It's not like I am just here for the weekend and then gone for the next month. I'm hers and will be hers for the rest of my life. As a man that has promised her my obedience and promised to submit to her as the head of our home, I have played my hand. I've told her that I prefer to put my freedom as it relates to our life together in her hands to give or withhold as she wishes.
What a difference in world views I have as Katie's sub versus my opinions and beliefs with respect to how I feel all US citizens should live. On one hand I don't desire any more freedom than what Katie deems necessary. On the other hand I want our Government to do less rather than more. I enjoy Katie keeping me dependent yet hate it when one of my freedoms are taken away when it comes to politics. I don't make a boat-load of money but I sure don't work to have others take what isn't theirs. More recently I am having to pay for others that do less. I don't want to pay for men or women that are well enough to work yet chose to suck off of me and others that work for a living. I'm now expected (as an employed person) that it's not fair (or even right) anymore for me to keep what I've earned. I need to pay more to support those that choose not to work and choose not to seek work when they have no excuse not to. Trust me, I know too many of these people personally. I don't think T Jefferson or John Adams or Benedict Arnold, or any of the other patriots that constructed our Declaration would agree with such a philosophy. Personally I think they would tell our Pres and Legislature that believes as such to 'stick it where the sun doesn't shine' but of course, that is just conjecture on my part.
For those of you that disagree, feel free to wire me cash in the amount that would put a severe cramp into your lifestyle. After you do, I'll listen seriously to what you have to say :)
