That's all the more reason for States to declare their sovereignty. I know it's coming down the road, we're spending way to much and this
"stimulus" bill is growing more by the day. It's absurd. At this point I almost relish the idea of a federal collapse so the States can start
doing things on their own. If we keep this union, we'll have to ensure that safeguards are in place to severely limit spending by the federal
As things exist today though, I'd rather the States handle their business themselves.
I have always been for states rights and individual responsibility. However ..this does not mean that one cannot get the same variety of crooks and
entitlement thinking peoples in state governments. You most certainly can. The states of Illinois, New York and others are classic historical
Agree about the stimulus packages..It is a continuation of buying up votes on the public purse. Promoting the various political parties at public
expense to maintain power and control.
I too sometimes relish the idea of a Federal collapse. However...as a matter of historical record..there are very few times that a government has
collapsed and the replacement government was better than the one it replaced. Most often the crooks and swindlers..those power greedy ...take back
over and it is worse than the government it replaced.
The only government I can think of which replaced a bad government and a better one succeded it..is the United States Constitution. Someone has been
working for many years to seduce this government and people into such infighting that it will collapse. We are very far away from the original intent
and also a sound money system based on a system of Just weights and measures that the government/banking system working in cahoots cannot borrow
moneys unlimited like drunken whores. Their machinations give real whores/hookers a bad name if one even can imagine that.
LOL LOL LOL ...real hookers being more honest and noble than politicians.
Well they do give a real honest service for their labors..not so with most politicians hooked on deficit spending.
If government had to tax the public directly for the moneys they are spending they would have been overthrown many years ago.
Deficits are a way of borrowing and taxing the public by inflation in a manner not seen by them so the public is not all that aware it is going on.
However ..there comes a day when payment is due!!! And the price will be paid one way or another. Government financing of public education will not
educate us on this one. You have to be capable of reading history to see it.
