Fighting for the Freedom and Liberty to buy things?

Yikes, the only real "freedom and liberty" conservatives seem to be fighting for choices.

The freedom to BUY a gun, the freedom to BUY or not BUY health insurance, the freedom to BUY a big gulp soda, the freedom to BUY an incandescent light bulb, and now...the freedom to BUY from a list of school options.

The freedom to shop is ludicrous. One question; what do people know about medical care and educational opportunities? Nothing of course, yet we're supposed to shop for highly professional services most people don't know anything about:
Betsy DeVos, Trump's nominee for education secretary, would fight for parents' educational options.
It's like parents don't have enough to do in their jobs, buying a home and car, home and auto insurance, shop for food and clothes, parenting children that might be quirky genius', always in trouble, or emotionally challenged, save and choose a college, deal with family health issues, aging parents, keep up-to-date and hold our politicians feet to the fire...well, you get the idea.

Now we're all supposed to shop and buy health insurance every year till we die, and manage a K-12 educational savings account so we can screen dozens of private educational choices filling our mailboxes with fancy promotional pamphlets claiming they're the best. 

Maybe it's a way to wear us down mentally.
