1. Why does federal gov. need to exist?
I don't think it should. A lot of its decisions seem to go against majority opinion, you can take your pick from war, bailouts, taxes, not
prosecuting corrupt rich/elite people, gun rights, healthcare, jobs, illegal immigration. There are more. They aren't serving our best interests. How
can a government that's supposed to protect our freedoms and maintain our well-being, act against our collective will?
2. What benefit is provided from two party system? (assuming such thing existed.)
There is no benefit. Both parties are made up of career politicians that have been taught to cast votes on issues based on whatever corporation pays
them more. They look after the interests of the rich and elite, in exchange they get money. The concept of a "two party system" gives the masses the
illusion of a choice, when in fact their voice is meaningless, as every election they cast empty votes, and are not represented by their
3. What are the cost savings from abolishing federal gov.?
Inconceivable. If our policies were governed by the people, we likely would not have 30,000 troops still in Japan, sitting on their @$$es siphoning
our tax dollars, as well as military outposts all over their world, trying to keep all the other nations under our control. We wouldn't be drawn into
wars every decade, we wouldn't be bailing out banks and CEO's, and we wouldn't have uncle sam intruding upon our privacy and rights.
4. What specific good has it ever done?
None that I know of.
5. Name one thing it has done to help people?
6. What has it done to protect you?
And before someone starts, bombing the crap out of the Middle East wasn't protecting me, that was just us attacking the Middle East. If they wanted
to protect us, they would have stopped the hijackers before they hijacked the airplanes. And no, they don't have to violate our privacy to do this.
How about the planes have their cabins locked with bulletproof doors? For Pete's sake, they walked in with boxcutters. This is a simple, obvious
Similar logic can be applied to the rest of our country. Build a wall between us and Mexico already. Maintain stronger border patrols. Boost the Coast
Guard. Bring our troops back home, and maintain a defensive military. The rest of the world is less likely to attack us if we aren't threatening them
all in the first place.
We are probably the world's strongest nuclear power, who is going to seriously invade us? No one. These little terrorist attacks can be prevented by
stronger border security, and some basic security (locked doors, bulletproof glass) built into public buildings and vehicles.
7. Name a serious national crisis or failure that didn't directly involve them?
A serious national crisis that didn't involve them...
