Doubt it would work, someone will do something to gain an advantage, others will complain, conflict will arise, sides will be taken, civil war, government will rise from conflict and youll be exactly where you started

Remember however, dissent is patriotic, holding your government accountable is patriotic, questioning is patriotic.
You are either extremely retarded, or just looking to stir up some sh!t, probably the later of the two, either way I refer you to what I have said before, butt out! If you cant come up with anything but bashing us and our country, leave the conversation, you wont be missed.
Octavius... I don't believe we need to dismantle our government at all. What we need to do is force our existing government to operate the way it was originally designed and to adhere to the precepts of the Contract between the People of the United States and its elected representatives: The U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Murtha attempted yesterday to quell criticism of a so-called mystery $1 million earmark to establish the Center for Instrumented Critical Infrastructure, a subsidiary of Concurrent Technology Corporation (CTC), a nonprofit technology innovation center in Johnstown, Pa., that has received millions of dollars in earmarks in recent years.
DoE spokeswoman Anne Kolton said yesterday the earmark is not a program that meets the department’s “mission critical” threshold, noting it was “inconsistent” with the department’s 2008 budget.
Anti-earmark crusader Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) challenged the earmark on the House floor Tuesday, asking if the “mysterious” Center for Instrumented Critical Infrastructure even existed because he and his staff couldn’t find a website for it. Flake’s challenge failed, 98-326.
In response to Flake, Rep. Pete Visclosky (D-Ind.), who chairs the spending subcommittee responsible for the project, admitted he didn’t know whether it existed.

Wankers who speed deserve to die or be put away before they kill someone who might have some worth in their life.
just like drug users, killers, rapists and all the other scum of the world.
Well Octavius, the Constitution and Bill of Rights is, among other things, a contract between The People and our Representatives in government. Like any contract, its execution needs to be monitored --- by both parties --- to ensure that it is being followed. If one party feels that the contract is not being duly honored they are obliged to enforce it. What we, the People, have done --- through inaction --- is allow that contract to be violated over and over again and (so far) we have not acted to enforce it. That is what I believe needs to change. We, The People, need to demand adherence to and enforcement of that contract.
There seems to be a lot of discriminating in this thread.
British have no right to talk about us, you are idiot bla bla bla. bla.
And now insulting some of the Dutch (or basically any drug user) citizens as well (though you weren't the first to bring it up).
Now please stop the silly generalizing of drugs / drugs users / guns.
That said, there's a huge difference between a drug USER, and a drug ADDICT, not to even start talking about the definition of drug, and whom you actually think should die. (Smokers for example)
I personally wish we all carried katanas and fight like REAL men ... anyone who can fight with fist and blade one on one is more of a man that someone who points and squeezes a trigger from far away, and that goes for hunting as well.
but, it should be done with freedom and the abolition of money. Would flipping a hamburger really be that bad if society wasn't based on greed and money? Where we got the things we want, because we all worked together as a global community? I guess that is why I call myself an idealist

I'm not into guns but haven't they been trying to get guns done away with here in the states.
I do think people have a right to have them and we can't let them take that right away. It will lead the people more toward that Nazi life they are attempting to push forward. Don't get chipped and don't do the ID card. Stand up and fight for your rights when they try to pull anything.
Stand up for what American was meant to be not what they are trying to make it, HELLo vote me in.

If someone attempts to rob me, attack me or invade my home my only goal is self defense. I like my chances better with a Glock than I do with swords and armour.
