Excuse me, but thanks to the system, we are already poor. Last time I checked Society is already plagued with crimes. The system is already broken. The "most advanced nations" on Earth are ones that take away your freedoms, and your Rights - gosh, you guys have been on ATS as long as I have, you guys know the story. The system, with its Project Paperclip and such, is already as worst as it can get.

I totally respect your opinion and stuff, but I have to disagree with you on that one, mate.

This just reads like another "if they get elected" article.
Ignore the bs.
Your wealth will be built on your value.
Ditch the loser corporations and build your small business now.
...or make some nozzle rich while you sit in a cubicle
This country was built on small biz and needs to get back to it.
Removing legislation and taxes from a bought gov would be a start.
...or focus on Vegas, I mean the stock market.
Play money only.

That's right. When you think about it it all boils down to private business. That's what they're afraid actually.

Instead of repeating myself, I'll just refer to this post and this post I made a couple of days ago while having this exact same debate. The facts clearly show that all forms of crime have been dropping for decades, so your perspective of the world is clearly not aligning with the facts. What your post really does is prove the argument I made in that recent debate about how many people have this unrealistically negative outlook on reality, believing that everything is going rapidly downhill when in fact the world is now more crime free and more peaceful than any other time in recorded history. In that debate I also pointed out how the EU and many other nations including my own are currently suffering from very unhealthy stagnant economies, meanwhile the U.S. economy has managed to avoid this trend and is actually doing very well. So forgive me if I find it very conceited to act like things are worse then they've ever been in the U.S., it's clear that no matter how good things are it will never be enough for some people, they want this magical Utopia which simply cannot exist.


The "most advanced nations" on Earth are ones that take away your freedoms, and your Rights

This is a ridiculous argument... if I had the money I would move to the U.S. because it's clearly one of the last remaining nations that truly respects liberty and individual freedom, especially compared to other nations which are quickly morphing into massive socialist nanny states which strip all liberty from their citizens. Let me ask, would you rather live in Hong Kong or somewhere else in China? As I explained in this thread, unlike the rest of China, Hong Kong actually has a very free market capitalist system, and as a result their GDP and Human Development Index is ridiculously higher than the rest of China. That is the primary reason China will never let them leave, they are a financial power house, Wikipedia states "According to the Index of Economic Freedom,[20] Hong Kong has had the highest degree of economic freedom in the world since the inception of the index in 1995." and "On the Human Development Index, it ranks the highest in Asia and seventh in the world, and it has one of the world's highest life expectancies". Hong Kong is ranking near the top in all these areas, and at the same time the rest of China led by the Communist Party is near the bottom of these rankings. They also have much less freedom than Hong Kongers, especially when it comes to freedom of speech and freedom to criticize their government. So I'm sorry if I find your argument here laughable but the reality is it is highly laughable, if you want freedom and liberty I can assure you that supporting hard socialism or communism is going to achieve precisely the opposite.

As a libertarian I absolutely agree, less tax and regulation for small businesses is a great thing, because small businesses form the foundation of any prosperous nation. No one on the right is saying we should focus only on large corporations or that you should dedicate your life to those corporations, in fact I regularly argue the exact opposite thing, I encourage people to get a good education and put in the effort required to build themselves a well paying career or start their own business. Absolutely no one is saying to sit in a cubicle all day or give your soul to large corporations, those types of jobs are a good way to start but those types of low skill low wage jobs shouldn't be considered life time careers because they clearly aren't going to provide the life of luxury that most people are seeking. It's also clear that most people on the left totally disagree with the logic of less taxes and less regulations, it's nothing more than fake trickle down economics in their mind, whether it be small or large businesses. I'm just so sick of people demanding that the government provide everything they need while they've really done nothing to earn it, this is a highly dangerous attitude that destroys nations.
