The conservative mantra is that government should not be able to mandate that the citizens buy anything.  I generally agree with this, however everything in balance.  Let’s first realize that if government taxes citizens and then uses those funds to buy things, then that is very much government forcing people to buy things, although with a lot less individual control.
Are these same conservative stating that government should not tax and fund Social Security,  education, welfare, regulations, protecting the country (military), roads, police, health care, the courts among others that are funded by government?  There is no big push back stating that government should not force people to buy these things.  Again, if government taxes and then provides (funds) these, they are forcing people to purchase these services, however now under politician control. 
Under Haley2024 reforms and on the page A Citizen's Responsibility, Haley2024 calls for many of these programs to be done in the free enterprise system. To ensure that people do not become burdens on society, however to gain control over these areas in their lives, Haley2024 mandates for the individual and businesses to take care of what government currently provides.  Haley2024 does not add or expand the mandate, over what government currently provides, in fact reduces and allows great latitude in how the needs are satisfied.   
Regulations
Regulations and bureaucracies are vital to society, however the government’s monopoly on these services stifles innovation and progress.  Government taxes to provide these ‘services’ thus mandating you buy these services through government.  
Haley2024 calls for the taxes to be reduced and the businesses mandated to pay for their only private regulatory agencies that they choose. This does not increase or add a mandate, it just allows businesses more options.  
Education
Government mandates people pay high taxes in order to fund education, thus mandating people buy education.  This requires parents to turn over control of how their child is educated, resulting in less liberty.
 Haley2024 segregates education taxes to just pay for education, thus taking it away from the general budget.  Haley2024 allows parents or teens to opt out of the benefit of a government funded education and out of the taxes.  Haley2024 agrees with a parent’s obligation that children receive an education and has a plan with the rating system to ensure there is no educational neglect.
Social Security and Medicare 
Social Security and Medicare is government mandating that people ‘save’ for retirement, regular income and healthcare.  Haley2024 proposes to responsibly end these two programs and mandate that people reach a certain rating on not becoming a burden to society in their elderly years.      
Social safety net      
Government taxing and providing welfare is government mandating that you help the poor.  Haley2024 proposes that ALL welfare is moved away from government, both taxes and spending.  Haley2024 proposes mandating that every individual help the poor through charity within a new structure. 
Roads
Government mandates that taxpayers pay for roads.  Haley2024 proposes moving roads to free enterprise.  While there is no mandate within free enterprise to pay for roads, the cost of roads will be part of the expenses of all goods and services.  
If you look at each Haley2024 proposed ‘mandate’, you will see that the mandate is far less than what government is currently mandating.  Furthermore, Haley2024 proposals allows great flexibility and individual choice.  As a compassionate people, the people do not want to see great personal needs going unmet.  These mandates are mostly policies to stop people from becoming a burden on society.
